Paleo Breakfast Delight


Straight from the Farm…Eggs, Ham & Chives…

The only thing needed was of course No Salt, Pepper & a light sprinkle of Original Mrs. Dash…perfect.

This, along with a scrumptious ‘cupajo’ … Heaven in all this heavy rain…

Oh BTW, don’t you love my dessert plate?  Y’all may realize by now that I do enjoy using various eye catching dishes! 😉


With LOVE…


What a sweet gift! Flowers are special! What a fun weekend with Jackie O & friends, even making some new ones!

Jackie O’s Blog Friends Brunch


I’m so glad to join in.  I had such such a fun time preparing to celebrate my first year of Hostesses as a Premier designs Jeweler.  Without them & the customers they brought to the table during all those Shows my business wouldn’t be the success it is.  Rather than tell all about I’ll show you some pics.


So…how do you like my submission for Jackie O’s Brunch? 💞



You’re Cordially Invited to Join in….Brunch will be more fun with you!

Are you new in the town of Blogosphere?

Are you relatively young in Blog-Land?

Hello and welcome.

I know what it feels like to be a new kid on the block, wondering how I can find my footing and makes some friends.

Sometimes, it seems like a drag and takes ages, but we are here to support each other.

This is one place you can hop in and meet some awesome, lovely, friendly blogger friends of mine.

You get an opportunity to showcase yourself, interact and gain some confidence.

It shouldn’t be a worry that you don’t have so much going on in your blog at the moment.

Remember that ‘iron sharpens iron’ and you can get inspired from seeing what others are doing by mingling with them.

We are quite a supportive bunch to hang out with even if we do get to paint the town red a couple…

It is Soooo Good


Can this Paleo Diet be this good and this good for you and the same time?

Here’s proof! Tell me!


I say a resounding YES!

This is probably one of the easiest and most tasty I’ve done.

Crockpot Chicken Vegetable Soup

3 skinless chicken leg quarters

1/2 lb. baby carrots

4 stalks of celery, cut to your preference

1 yellow onion, julienned

Water, just to cover

No Salt, Pepper, Mrs. Dash to taste just sprinkled over top, layered according to order I listed.

I let it cook about 3 hours on high, then added 2 cups of hot water with 2 bouillon cubes dissolved, poured in at the side, then let it cook about another hour on low.

I let it cool enough then to dish up in a souffle casserole dish and refrigerate overnight.  Had this for lunch….the next day.  Excellent.  My husband made a pot of rice on the side to have with his.  I love it just the way it is.  It’s breakfast time right now as I type this.  May have that instead of eggs. Hmm. Well, maybe I’ll have it for lunch after Church!

(Oh, I know it’s not tomorrow but I had that post in my Drafts a couple days and didn’t realize it.)

Bless us O Lord, in these, Thy gifts, which we are about to receive.  In Thy Bounty, through Christ our Lord, Amen! (a table blessing we often said during my childhood)

It’s Chicken Tonight


Paleo Lifestyle still ROCKS!

I baked skinless chicken leg quarters with Lemon Pepper, No Salt & pepper; Hubby grilled skinless chicken leg quarters adding BBQ sauce; I have chicken leg quarters in bottom of crockpot with veggies & broth making soup for later.  We did have some cut green beans with our chicken.  I had the baked, he had the BBQ grilled.  Soup, yep, still on!


I’ll let you see it tomorrow.


And today I was able to, along with my sweetheart, begin by guiding our 18 year old in some Adulting moments!  We know it can be challenging but has to be done.  1st step in building his own credit, signing his life away including getting his own Insurance Policy…Tag within 5 business days….Thankful he has a good job….almost through with High School.  Looking forward with great responsibility.


Political Luncheon Event Today.


You really can eat out, have what you like customized to your taste, and not stand out!  I have always loved cheese, sauces, chips, bread, etc. dairy, let’s not forget lots of dairy products.  I am however, enjoying Paleo so far (Cavewoman) Rah!

Taco Salad (Chicken) with no dairy…Awesome!


Sun Shines on my Special Paleo Breakfast


I’ve been showing a sampling of my lunches, suppers, but no breakfast to date.  I know, this is a new leg of my Life’s Journey, but here goes!

I use a Salad plate size most of the time.  I can fill it up and not take refills and I’m eating about 2/3 of a dinner size plate.

We’re so very blessed to have available to us, via a close friend, fresh brown eggs from her sister’s chickens.  Oh, I love, love, love eggs and these are awesome.  Now, on to my breakfast display…

2 fresh, brown eggs mixed with a splash, splash & 1/2 water

1 Buttom Mushroom cut up to your desired size, i.e. sliced, chopped, etc.

No Salt, Pepper, Mrs. Dash to taste

I love fried eggs best, with white not quite done, and yolk very runny.  Yes, I know, so many detest that.  Take after my Daddy in that.  In respect to scrambled eggs I’ve always used milk unless there’s none in the house.  Learned during childhood milk is to be used, but only in the past few saw water used.  Now, since I’m working hard at following the dos and don’t soft Paleo, no dairy, so water it is.  Tasty!  Very much so!

As you can see in the Sunny plate below, I added a piece of bacon halved, along with a couple spoons of cut up Honeydew & Canteloupe melons.

As far as coffee my choice most often is black.  Today hubby made a pot of Mocha Mint.  #treatsmespecial24/7

Paleo Lifestyle Eating is Fun (so far)


Here’s a Facebook Link to a lady who I receive daily emails from that includes lots of great info, recipes, etc.  

And my 2nd day of Paleo foods is so good.  

Lunch was Steak Fajita Salad at a local New Mexican food restaurant, Mi Sol Azteca

Then Supper was using some:

Chicken Tenderloins


1/2 an onion

1/2 green bell pepper

4 large button mushrooms cut in 1/2 and then quartered

Seasoned with Mrs. Dash, No Salt & Pepper

I cooked the above ingredients on the stovetop as I would a stir fry.  

I have an awesome small electric Rice Cooker, perfect results everytime.  I love Yellow Rice (Saffron) and tonight I prepared it to accompany the rest of the our delectable meal.  For me, a couple florets each of broccoli & cauliflower, but green beans for hubby. 

Very good, enjoying my Paleo Journey so far.


And then as a dessert I had some Greek Yogurt, Plain & Strawberry with fresh blueberries & strawberries.  Very good.  

I also added a few Pins to my Paleo Lifestyle Board on Pinterest.
