Salmon And Asparagus Hash


When I was younger, I hated when my food would touch.  Nothing could mix together.

Thank goodness, I have evolved.

Now my goal in my cooking life is to try to come up with new and yummy concoctions that are mixed with all sorts of ingredients.

For the past month, I have been working on some life long diet changes due to a new and lovely medical diagnosis.  One in which I am not quite ready to talk about.

Anywhoo, it is very hard to stay on track, but I hope by the beginning of the new year, I will be focused, and will have acquired enough recipes in my arsenal to help.

That is wear this yummy hash comes into play.

Ingredients:

  • One packet/can of salmon (I got mine from whole foods, but any will do)
  • Asparagus (as much as you want)
  • One small potato
  • 3 Brussel sprouts chopped
  • Bacon
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper

This is where it gets tricky.

Cook your bacon in a separate pan from your potatoes.  When your potatoes are almost  done, throw in the asparagus and brussel sprouts.  Add the salmon, and when the bacon is done, chop it up and throw it in the pan.  Add salt & pepper to taste, and you are done.

Hash!

Boots, Scarves, And Some Music


Happy Wednesday everyone.  I am sitting here watching the 1980s version of The Fog, and I thought I would talk about a few of my likes this week.

My likes change on a weekly basis.  I am fickle like that.

I am working on a scarf for myself, and have the itch to knit some more.  I figure the knitting will be good therapy for my hands and building muscles in my forearms.  I like to call it lazy girl exercise.

I was searching The Purl Bee and found some great scarves to knit.

Then there are the boots.  The boots people.  I love boots.  I need a knee length pair to finish my set.

Just look what I  found.

Now music.

I have been listening to a singer/songwriter by the name of Sturgil Simpson lately.

He sounds like Waylon Jennings, and has a soulful hillbilly sound.

Needless to say I heart him.

Happy Day!

A Dress For The Fall


I think when it comes to clothes, and dressing for Fall, it is awesome being a girl.

Why?

Dresses!

Dress them up or dress them down, they are a great addition to any Fall outfit.

A Dress For Fall

I like to do a little of both.

Add a vintage pair of shoes with a sweet cardigan and you have a nice outfit for a dinner date.

Throw on a leather jacket, some tights, and simple jewelry, and you are ready for a night out with the gals.

Need some dress ideas, you can find them here.

Just What I Needed


This weekend was crazy busy.

First we had our yearly family reunion camping trip with my husbands side of the fam.  I unfortunately only had enough vacay for one day off, so Saturday it was.  We slept in a tent, ate hot dogs, and watched all the cousins play from sun up to sun down.

Saturday was full of sports, and I actually got to watch my girls play in their games.  What little athletes I have!  Watching them play sports brings me so much joy.

Sunday was work, and I know I am doing a good job when a patient recognizes how much I enjoy it.  One of my patients said to me “You really like doing this don’t you?”  Yes sir I do, and I am glad it reflects in my work.

When I got home from work, my girls greeted me with hugs and kisses.

My oldest said Happy Mothers day to me and I was like huh!

On her calendar in her room it said that yesterday was Mothers Day.  She put all this together for me.  She was so embarrassed.  I told her to never be embarrassed about doing something kind for someone.

She really is the most precious thing.

It was just what I needed.

P.S.  Did I mention she made me a cup of coffee with my french press?

Momma teaches her girls well!
