A Quick Meal on a Sunny Day

Hey hey y’all! What a beautiful day it has been! I almost missed the beauty of it all from being sick. I did not have a cold, but actually was suffering just a tad bit from food poisoning. I shop at this market that has the best prices on their meats, fruits and veggies. Well, let’s just say that I was a little negligent with my purchase and bought some meat that was on “quick sale”. That meat may have had a $2 discount but I paid for that meat over and over again. I felt horrible; I could not smell food, could not make any quick moves, and could not handle the smell of my son’s dirty diapers! I was experiencing nausea, fatigue, dizziness, stomach cramps, steady sprints to the bathroom (but no diarrhea), and just an ill feeling. I stayed in bed for the majority of the day yesterday. So today I decided to take it easy with my Sunday dinner. I chopped up some Butterball Turkey Sausage links, spices, an onion, and a scoop of garlic (from a jar) and threw this in a pan with a little olive oil while I boiled some thin spaghetti noodles. In between stirs of the noodles and meat, I put on a pot of eggs to boil for a garden salad. When the meat was finished heating and blending together with the spices and the noodles were ready to eat, I mixed the sauce and the meat. After draining and rinsing the noodles, I slowly added them to the sauce (I also added spices to the sauce) and cooked together on very low heat. I threw a bag of frozen mixed vegetables in the microwave for 5 minutes. Dinner was complete within the hour. My kids love spaghetti, and if I let them they would choose to have it every day. Since that obviously is not going to happen, they are happy whenever they can have it! Enjoy this beautiful Sunday, relax and regroup for the week to come! Until next time folks…

I know the doctors and veteran moms, like me, will say that every child is different. To be honest, I always say that each child of mine has… Read more →

Breastfeeding & Daycare

Hey everyone! I don’t know about everyone else, but this week has been a long and exhausting one! I began training for a new job (from home) and my three youngest boys began their journey at a new daycare. I must admit, being a veteran mom has its perks when I am facing issues like these. My baby is 13… Read more →

My Journey to Me

Hey y’all! I wanted to share a bit about my journey that I have been on for the last (going on) 3 years now. I used to be a hair chameleon…meaning I changed my hair quicker than you could blink your eyes. Red, orange, blue, jet black, purple, blonde…you name it and I had the color. Every time I saw… Read more →
