So I’ve been missing in action! Things happened…and then more things happened! Sad things! Things that are still a bit hard for me to talk about because they are still so fresh. You see my grandmother, the lady that was a huge part of my life growing up, passed away last week. Things happened overnight it seems. She went from the full steam ahead stubborn lady I knew to a lady I didn’t even recognize laying in the hospital. It’s amazing how life works and how you get so busy in your life that you forget to stop and say “I Love You” on random times and days to those important in your life. I’m guilty of it! My goal is to get better. Too bad it took this happening to realize that. I loved my grandmother more than words and I will miss her greatly. BUT I am happy I have so many memories of her fresh in my head like they happened yesterday. I speak of her a lot in the my upcoming cookbook I wrote, which you’ll hopefully see in early October. Like the hot summer days sitting in her kitchen eating cantaloupe. Or the peach ice cream we used to make every summer in the old fashion ice cream maker. And even her non-Paleo Southern biscuits that I loved as a child! So much! I’m tucking those memories deep in my mind and heart to cherish forever. She was more of an influence in my life than I think she knew….
With that being said I wasn’t able to get in the kitchen to cook so I’m cheating a little with this recipe. This was my breakfast but it was good so I thought why not share it?! Don’t judge, just love that I thought of you long enough to snap this photo before completely eating it all. And now you have a recipe and hopefully a new dish to try one spring morning…since it is spring even though the weather doesn’t seem to agree in my neck of the woods.
Another thing, I wasn’t able to attend PaleoFX which was sad but it was amazing to see pictures and see recaps from some of the fellow Paleo Bloggers out there. There is always next year….
One last note, stop and breath every now and then and take in what is around you. Especially those that mean so much to you. Because unfortunately you never know what tomorrow will bring. With that being said…..thank you to all of you out there who support this little creative outlet of mine and read my rambling words. I “heart” you guys!
