Happy 20th…ūüíć

Standard

For Newlyweds it seems strange to celebrate a 20th Wedding Anniversary, doesn’t it? ¬†8/17/96 began our Wedded Bliss. ¬†Too many wonderful stories to share in this post from over the years, we’ve had ups and downs along just as many do. ¬†Seasons! ¬†Seasons come and go! ¬†This season is a very enjoyable one. ¬†Surprise after surprise … my Sweatheart pulled a lots of things out of his hat … each one topped the one before!

My Poultry Offering for Today

Standard

I’m still staying mostly faithful to the Paleo lifestyle…it’s been so busy at my ‘humble abode’ of late! ¬†So much fun going on, many special moments, treats and life events. ¬†I’ll to get to all that with some of my next few posts. ¬†Today I’m going to tickle your senses with my Turkey dish, a new creation today.

I received a few new pieces for my kitchen, one of which being my RockCrok from Pampered Chef and I’m certainly getting a great amount of good use from it. ¬†Today I ¬†also used a few other pieces I recently received. ¬†My Recipe is as follows…

EVOO, 2 T

1 yellow onion

1 green bell pepper

1/2 lb. baby carrots

2 stalks celery

1 lb. ground Butterball Turkey

No Salt & Pepper to taste

Italian Seasoning, Pampered Chef, 1 cap full

Herbs de Provence, Pampered Chef, just a few shakes

2 Chicken bouillon cubes

Chives

I began by using the portable food processor to chop my veggies while heating the pan, then added all veggies and sweating till clear look began and added meat and sautéed with lid off for a bit, then on, folding over food from time to time, adding seasonings along, too.  I then prepared CousCous with 1 cup boiling water, to 1/2 cup CousCous, but no seasonings but just added into meat & veggies and folded in well.

just served it from the pan.  A tremendous hit!

It’s so delicious. ¬†You should try it.

Summer Salad

Standard

We have so many tomatoes from our garden…it really is on its last leg.  My fridge drawer is overrun so I decided a Salad would be the best thing to do.  Also, fried up some bacon this morning so BLTs will be on tap soon.  As I was shopping my juices were flowing to get this salad ready as soon as possible.  And after a bit of prep time the outcome is just what I was hoping to have!  #scrumptious
