This past Spring, I picked up this free magazine at one of our local grocery stores. I knew that eventually I would be making both of these recipes.


I made the Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Grapes and Prosciutto shortly after picking up the magazine, and we loved them.


I’ve had the magazine on my kitchen counter top opened to this page for several weeks now. Yesterday was the day.


This was super easy to make and I have no idea why in the heck I waited so long to cook this up! 

Bake the crust. Add cooked veggies. Add cooked meat. Add eggs. Bake.



I tweaked things a bit. I removed the cream and the cheese from the original recipe. I used different veggies and I added in cooked pork sausage. 

You could use a variety of veggies and a variety of meats to give this all sorts of different flavors. Mushrooms, zucchini, broccoli? How about topping this off with some sliced tomatoes or avocado?

I used Pork Sausage, but this would also be amazing with some crumbled bacon, or diced ham. Yummmmm.

Any kind of cheese would be delish in this too!

Okay, this is what I had on hand yesterday, and we thought that it tasted great!

“love the life you live, live the life you love”

July 24, 2016

Oh my gosh, my mood is all over the place lately. I don’t know what the heck is going on, but Monday through Thursday went really well, and I was feeling like Julie.

Friday? Crazy lady. Look at me and my eyes instantly filled up with tears. I went to WW on Friday morning. It was an awesome meeting! We talked about Food, Fitness and Fulfillment with putting Fulfillment first. It was such a great meeting and so many people had so many great things to say. Sometimes those meetings can be kind of deep for me and really hit on some emotions. It can be great therapy for me at times. I chatted with a few of my WW buddies after the meeting, and basically cried while speaking to whomever I was speaking to.

I had a Dr. appointment scheduled for Friday afternoon because my back is still sore. No spasms, just sore. My dad has a kidney disease and because of that, I try to be cautious and have things checked out if I think there might be an issue. My chiropractor said that my pain was around where my kidneys are, so having that looked at further seemed like the smart thing to do. For whatever reason, I cried all the way to the Dr. office. Crazy lady I say. Crazy. When they called me up to the desk, they told me that my appointment was scheduled for next Friday. Yep. I just stared at the lady and started crying. I walked out and cried all the way to the car. What the ??????

Anyhow, I ran errands, bought groceries and went home. I decided to keep myself busy, so I grabbed cleaning supplies and headed down to our basement and cranked up the tunes. It is a game room that I decorated like a bar? Stuff all over the walls. Random things fill up the three window sills and I have things hanging all over. It needed a good top to bottom cleaning. It was much cooler in the basement than anywhere else that I could think of spending any time, so I spent the next three hours dusting every single item in the basement and I vacuumed every square inch! I got every dust bunny that existed and every dead bug. Why are there so many dead bugs in basements? After all of my cleaning, I opened a beer, put my feet up and admired my clean basement.

Mike joined me and we ended up playing three games of pool and three games of foosball. I felt better.

My food, water consumption and exercise has been awesome this week, but in drinking the beer, I can’t say that I am doing a perfect Whole30, or Whole15, or whatever it is that I am doing. I am eating great. That I do know.

I had gained a few pounds over the two weeks of not doing a darned thing, and they came off this week, so I’m back at the weight that my body seems to love best. 172.

Yesterday morning, Mike and I rolled out of bed early and got busy doing things outside before it got too hot. I spent two hours mowing, edging, pulling weeds, watering flowers and trimming the bushes in the back yard. Mike waxed his car. We both likely lost two pounds by simply sweating. After a cold shower, I made a Quiche that I had been wanting to make for weeks. It was a hit.




I had decided to do to the living room what I had done in the basement. Lots of knick knacks to dust. Ugh. Mike had more car detailing to do. He has been detailing his car for like six weeks!! I’m not even kidding. I think he is doing mine next!

In the middle of cleaning, a girlfriend of mine surprised me and stopped by. When she walked up to the door, she had a variety of beers that she had just picked up. Needless to say, we all took a beer break and enjoyed a Pear Beer. It was tasty and refreshing and it was a great surprise visit! After our break, back to cleaning.

Last night I made scallops for the first time, and dinner was the second meal of the day that was a hit.


So like I said, my food and exercise have been on point this week and I have my snacking under control. I have been getting in enough protein at each meal that I haven’t been hungry in between meals. I’m feeling really good about where I am with my food, now if I can just get my emotions in check.

I plan to go to a Yoga Stretch and Relax class tonight, and that should feel good both mentally and physically.

I hope that you all are having a great weekend!

Weird Eats…

May 12, 2016

No matter how much planning goes into the weeks meals, some days end up being random for one reason or the other.


I was trying to get in as much protein as possible, so I wouldn’t be hungry while working at the food truck. Breakfast was odd, but yummy. I learned while doing Whole30, dinner leftovers are awesome for breakfast!


In case I did get hungry at the food truck, I made myself some Tuna/Egg salad to take with me. Typically, when I make my lunch in the morning, I put it back in the fridge, then I set my car keys in the fridge on top of my lunch so I won’t forget to take it with me. Smart, huh? Yeah, I think so. Yesterday, I couldn’t find my car keys and decided that I would just find them before I headed out the door and then grab my lunch.

Found my keys, forgot my lunch, got hungry at the food truck, ate some Chicken Salad.


I have this recipe for a Sweet Potato Pie Quiche that uses Sweet Potatoes, sliced thinly, and lined in a pie plate for the crust. I have not made this recipe yet, but I have been wanting to make the crust part of the recipe, then make a Sweet Potato Taco Pie! Doesn’t that sound good? Anywho, last night I attempted a Sweet Potato Taco Pie. It totally fell apart.

I made a yummy salad on Tuesday night, so I made a smaller portion again last night to eat with our Fall Apart Taco Pie.

I discovered the Tessemae Products while doing Whole30, (I ordered them online and I don’t believe that they are available in stores?) Two of my favorites were the Dijon Mustard and this Honey Mustard Dressing. A serving size on the bottle is 1 tsp and is 10 calories. I need to order more!

Okay, that sums up my weird food yesterday.

Walking Challenge

I met a new neighbor a few weeks ago while I was out on a walk, and she was outside with her puppy. I knew that she had just moved in, so I stopped to introduce myself. We chatted and she mentioned that she liked to walk too. After stopping by her house a few times and missing her, I put a note in her mailbox with my cell number and my website so she could check me out and see if she thought I was a weirdo or not. I guess she decided I wasn’t too weird, because yesterday she sent me a text and we walked together! Always fun to meet new people! 

How’s your walking going???

Have you decided to challenge yourself in another way? I’ve heard from a few of you that have, and that is awesome! It’s always great to challenge ourselves, no matter what the challenge.


Here are yesterday’s weird eats…

Breakfast – 6 SP

Leftover Sloppy Joe’s, Scrambled Egg Whites, Avocado. I ended up mixing it all together and it was really good!



Lunch – 8 SP

Chicken Salad and Cucumbers at the food truck.



Beer – 5 SP

One Un-Pictured Beer on the deck.

Dinner – 14 SP

Salad with Romaine, Rotisserie Chicken, Tomatoes, Walnuts and Honey Mustard Dressing and fall apart, Sweet Potato Pie
