“F’ mornings, F’ early work, F’ anything in the morning that doesn’t involve sleep, sex, or bacon!”
I know I have been MIA for a while. I swear with the holidays and work, my life has been a whirl wind. Sometimes you forget to stop and catch your breath. Since September we have had our hands full with our new puppy, Boulder who is now 6 months old and just lost his manhood. Having him alone has brought lots of joy to someone who works from home, but also can be somewhat frustrating as well. As I am typing this he is whining because he wants to go outside and play.
Also this fall my family had Christmaha (Christmas in Omaha, NE) right before Thanksgiving. Just worked out best for all of us and honestly, it was nice to get it out of the way. Makes December a little less stressful than normal! Anyway… now Christmas is right around the corner and my week is filled with Christmas parties galore! Gotta love this time of year… lots of food, lots of unhealthy choices, and lots of bloating! Anyway… today I finally made something on the healthier side. I found this wonderful breakfast dish from PaleOMG (great place for paleo recipes)… Click here for the original recipe! Below is the way I created her delicious meatballs!
- 1 sweet potato – grated (good work for your muscles. :)
- 1 lb. of sausage – I used pork
- 5-6 strips of bacon – cooked and chopped up
- 1 garlic clove – minced
- 2 TBSP maple syrup
- 1 cup of mushrooms – chopped finely
- pinch of salt
- pinch of pepper
Directions: Preheat your oven to 375 and bake your bacon til it’s nice and crispy. While that’s cooking grate your sweet potato (it’s like a mini workout, lol). Chop up your mushrooms and mince your garlic while the bacon is cooking. Once bacon is done take out and dab with a paper towel to get rid of the extra grease then chop up into small piece. Then you take all the ingredients and mix it in a bowl with your hands. The hands do wonders let me tell you. :) Once mixed roll into balls and place on a cooking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes and enjoy! Honestly, these are so freaking delicious and heat up nicely too!
Wishing you all a sensational Holiday Season! Enjoy time with family and friends and always having a happy tummy full of yummy food. :)
