Back in the Groove…..

November 28, 2015

Yesterday was quiet and productive at home. Lots of laundry and a few snuggles with my pups. Mostly with this one……


All day I kept thinking how I had to get to the grocery store because we really had no food. Lunch time came, and I was able to put together a pretty tasty lunch. Dinner came, and as I was telling Mike that he could just eat my leftovers from my lunch, and I would eat eggs, I remembered that I had set out some lamb chops that I had been a bit hesitant to make. The only thing in the vegetable crisper was a bag of carrots and a bag of mixed greens. You guys….dinner was amazing.

But today. I HAVE to grocery shop!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I’ve got to get out of the house today!

Here are yesterday’s eats……

Breakfast – 7 PPV

Potato Skins? Kinda. I took my baked sweet potato, and sliced in lengthwise. I took three slices and put them in the skillet in a little coconut oil (and just a tad of the bacon fat from the slice of bacon that I cooked) until they were just crisp. I topped them with smashed avocado, a scrambled egg and one slice of crumbled bacon. A clementine and Black Coffee on the side. Yum.



Lunch – 8 PPV

I sautéed Fresh Green Beans and Onions. I added a piece of cooked bacon to the skillet, leftover rotisserie chicken and Trader Joe’s Organic Vegetable Broth. Let it all simmer, and lunch was filing and delicious.



Dinner – 14 PPV

I’ve never made lamb chops before. I’m not sure that I’ve actually eaten lamb chops before. I bought them right after buying the Whole30 book, but for some reason was reluctant to make them. They tasted like steak! Roasted Carrots and a Salad made with my new Balsamic Vinegar and Oils I picked up last week at the Olive Oil store. This dressing combo was Blood Orange Olive Oil and Cranberry Walnut Vinegar with a few Walnuts tossed in the salad too. I used a little wine to cook the lamb chops, so of course a glass of wine with dinner finished it all off nicely.
