I know you are shocked for your own eyeballs that you are actually reading a new blog post from me! Sorry for my absent-ness. I am still cooking my fool head off and creating everyday. Anyone who has blogged, knows it is a time consuming hobby. I do truly love sharing with you all, but sometimes it just comes down to time. And other times, I cannot lie, I am just too darn hungry to take pictures, write down ingredients ect. So it's a continuous cycle of trying to find the perfect balance. Very much true to everything in life....Correct?
Today, my two pooch side kicks and I are snugged up. Missing hubs big time! He is away in Chicago for the week working a trade show. Much work and planning on his part has went into having a booth at the show. Wouldn't you know, that last Tuesday rolled around and Larry woke up sick as a dog! WHAT!?! He next to NEVER gets sick (maybe once every 3yrs.). Well a nasty, nasty bug struck and it struck hard....laying him up in bed for 2 straight days. I have a feeling it would have been longer but with a full plate for the show, you can't keep a good man down. So I have been trying to help anyway I can to lighten his load and get him back to good. We (me & pooch's) wished him well this morning and sent him on his south way! GO Larry! In the meantime I am hosing this germ shack down & praying to God I don't get struck next. I am telling myself that this strong Paleo immune system can't be touched. It's all about the power of intention right?
Today I made myself a delicious breakfast and am planning a week of meals for a table of 1. Unless of course, you would like to come over and I'll cook for you? Ok, I am pretty sure I am boring you beyond words so without further ado....
