This is a variation on Aarti Sequiera’s Mango Pulled Pork with Peanut Slaw. Here’s the original post: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/winner-aarti-sequeira1/pulled-pork-with-mango-bbq-sauce-recipe-1921724 This is the only pulled pork recipe I make, but I change it up a bit each time. Usually this recipe changes for me based on what I have on hand. But the idea is all Aarti and I think she is brilliant. Here’s my take on … Continue reading Island Pulled Pork w/Indian Peanut Slaw.
Happy Snow Day! AGAIN! Do you live in KC, or anywhere in the Midwest? If so, you’re probably snowed in right now. We are, and we are not sad about it. The Hub and I went to Trader Joe’s early this morning and nailed it with some slow cooker meals, meat for the freezer, and fruits and veggies GALORE!!! Here’s a little tip you probably … Continue reading PREP DAY.
I’m one of those people who really struggles with the kinds of emotions that I would never, ever want to burden anyone else with. Sorry to my English-teacher sister for the dangling participle, but it’s true. The only person who really sees the depths of darkness and frustration is the Hub, and he really didn’t ask for that privilege. My mom gets a little bit … Continue reading confession: anger journal.
I confess. I’m a self-proclaimed addict of the trendy food-lovers’ salad of today ~ the Buddha Bowl. I could eat one every single day. And it would be really smart for me to do so. It’s full of all the things that really make me feel amazing: fresh, vibrantly-colored vegetables, mostly raw, nuts, seeds, fruits, maybe a little protein or grain added, and a homemade … Continue reading Buddha Bowl Addict.
This is truly a soup for company, y’all. Although, I didn’t know I was going to have company yesterday when I made it. I merely made it because I wanted to get rid of this nasty Seasonal Affective Disorder that’s been lingering for days. But sometimes if you build it, it will come. If you make delicious food, people will come to your house for … Continue reading Curried Carrot Bisque.
Okay, I COMPLETELY forgot to post anything on the last day of the reset! TERRIBLE! So here’s my belated last-day post! Not that I have anything interesting to say. I’ll tell you this: I am eating a lot of not-on-plan things down here at the music convention I’m attending with the Hub, and it’s fine, but I know this will end soon. Oh yes. It … Continue reading Day 21?
One more day, y‘all! One more day!!! I am definitely going to continue on for the full 30 days, but I promise I‘ll leave you alone after tomorrow! I‘ll go back to my regular, random posts, and stop filling your inboxes with my daily highs and lows. I think this way of eating is so delicious, though. I can‘t imagine stopping, although I’m sure I‘ll … Continue reading Day 20!
I cannot believe this is still happening! Anyone tired of this dang posts? Don’t answer that. I’m tired of myself at this point. Another hurdle yesterday! I had a rare out-of-town gig with my lovely trio (shout-out to the amazing director, who works hard to get us gigs in this difficult market called the Midwest!) We always stop after the performance and get something really … Continue reading Day 18 & 19.
It is so gloomy here! And cold and miserable. It’s really not helping my situation, as I trudge (there’s that word again) through the last weeks of this reset. Okay, this is a 21-Day Reset. So this is technically and officially over in 5 days. But I really want to try and go the whole 30 days. I guess I’ll just see what happens, since … Continue reading Day 17.
This post is coming to you late because I‘m really behind on life. And stressed, and unfocused. Praying this will pass! Tuesday night‘s din din was MY kind of food ~ pasta!!! Only, made with Whole 30 compliant ingredients ~ YAHOO! I wanted to make Lidia’s famous Pasta Trio, but I figured only two kinds of “pasta” would do. Here’s what we ate: Sweet Potato … Continue reading Whole 30 Italian Night.
