Captain America?

Standard

My son recently had his senior pictures taken and after I posted them my cousin placed this side by side picture of Captain America and my son on my Facebook. I never noticed it until now but he does resemble it a little 🙂 It has amused me so much I thought I would share! Chris Evans may not agree! I told my cousin she may have blown my son’s cover!haha

My Son the Super Hero 🙂

Szechuan & Kale Salmon Patties

Standard

These round little patties aren’t your most healthy of dinner choices but they could be worse. I have a hungry boys and a husband and they gave these a thumbs up! 

We have all had salmon patties at some point in our childhood.  Well,  I just kicked them up a notch!  Szechuan & Kale Salmon Patties!

Again, for full recipe disclosure,  I’m not a measurer ~ I’m an eyeball’r of ingredients so here is what I mixed up. 

Two cans of Salmon, 4 eggs,  a little salt, a sleeve of hand crushed saltine crackers (not whole30 approved!), a teaspoon of szechuan (that I did measure!), and a few leaves of kale (spinach would have worked, too) .  Tip: I would not use frozen kale or spinach because I’m sure the water would make the oil pop. 

I mixed well and formed into patties. Some people at this point roll them in flower,  I do not.  Fry in a little oil on medium heat for a few minutes on each side and they are ready to eat! 

This also gave me a reason to show off my new pretty Pioneer Woman’s cooking dish! 

Happy Cooking! 

Healthy Breakfast Peppers

Standard

A little over a month ago I set out on the journey to eat healthier. What I found out quickly is when you take the time to prep your food for the week it isn’t that hard to accomplish. Breakfast and lunch are my downfalls. Here is my attempt to prep breakfast for the week.  I have other recipes but this one was a keeper. 

Here is a picture of breakfast peppers I threw together. I chopped up mushrooms,  tomatoes, a handful of frozen spinach and two eggs.  I’m not a measure’r, I’m more of an eyeballe’r! So,  I don’t have exact amounts. 

I microwaved (trial and error, baking in the oven took too long and didn’t cook the center) between 7 and 10 minutes.

Turkey Bacon would be great on it, well not as great as real bacon! 

Happy Healthy Eating!

Start Seeing Bikes!

Standard

We have ridden bikes for over two decades now. I know that gives my age as OLD but at this stage of the game, age is just a number.  We are NOT full blown Harley riders, we are NOT novice Harley riders. What we ARE ~ AWARE Bike Riders. We try to be aware of what is around us and what could be dangerous but no one is perfect. Please start seeing bikes. Give them respect. Not all bike riders act safe when driving but the majority do and it is a tight community.  Did you know that Bikers wave at one another when they are driving down the highway and roads? If you don’t ride a bike you may not know this universal wave happens all over the country between bikers that do not know one another. Even the burliest, toughest guys wave at other bikers.  If you didn’t know that, now you can watch for the friendly wave between riders.

So, I will ask one more time~~ Please, start seeing bikes and give them room. Be AWARE DRIVERS and we will be AWARE RIDERS.
