I’m drowning! Drowning with so much stuff….I sound like I did last week. Oh well, its the truth. I guess I’m consistent! This week a bomb went off in my house. Tuesday I got the call from the girls school that the head lice that was being warned about 2 weeks ago landed in not one of my children but TWO (but luckily not me)! I guess that would happen when I do have twins…duh! The days after have been taking trips to a specialist…which I didn’t know there was such a thing until this all happened by the way. I have to say those specialist were the happiest group of people I have ever seen especially they are checking peoples heads for bugs and eggs. Yuck! I was lucky enough never to have gotten these little critters in my hair growing up. I can honestly say I hope my little ones don’t have to go through it again either. Not only does it suck in the pocket book but all those things on the to-do list you have get pushed back even more. Like this blog post….I wanted to post it days ago but it’s Friday and I’m just getting to it. But the girls were home with me the past three days which meant entertaining two little ones and not getting much of anything done! I hope I don’t sound like one of those whiny people…I hate it when my kids whine so I really hope I’m not sounding like them! I’m sorry….I’ll shut up now. But seriously, other moms out there who have gone through this whole lice thing please tell me this only happen to your child once and not multiple times. Ok, I’m shutting up.
Here is a good thing, our vacation starts tomorrow! The family and I are headed out on some much needed bonding time together…oh and the dog is even coming along too. Which makes us all happy to have our four legged friend along for the fun. So no whining or blog posts from me next week but hopefully I’ll be able to come back a new person and just maybe a new redesigned site….ok, that may be later in the month but its coming and I’m over the moon with excitement to share it all with you. I’ve been listening to you all too. A print option is coming, a pin it option is coming, and some more paleo information overload that will hopefully make your transition to the lifestyle easy. I’m thankful for the creative and super talents of Melissa and Erin over at Wooden Spoon Kitchen to make this all a reality.
Ok, food….here is the recipe! Oh, I realized I am extremely rusty on making a fried egg. I’m a scrambled egg kind of girl on most days. Sorry they aren’t so pretty…they tasted good though!
Breakfast Skillet Hash
2 slices nitrate free pastured bacon, cooked
1 small to medium sweet potato, finely diced
1 bunch of brussel sprouts, trimmed and quartered
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
To make hash:
Use the bacon grease from the cooked bacon and add to a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add diced sweet potato and sea salt and stir to combine. Cook sweet potatoes for about 3 to 4 minutes, stirring often. Then stir in brussel sprout quarters and continue to cook until both the sweet potato and brussels sprouts are tender and golden.
Dice cooked bacon into pieces and stir into hash. Remove from heat and set aside.
To make fried eggs:
Set your non-stick pan over medium heat and let it warm up. Add 1-3 teaspoons of coconut oil or bacon grease. Crack egg(s) directly into pan. Once you’ve cracked the eggs in the pan, just let them sit. They will be done when the whites are set and the outer edges are just starting to curl up. If the edges start to curl before the whites in the center are fully cooked, cover the pan with a lid for a minute or two.
Divide hash onto two plates and serve two fried eggs over hash.
Makes 4 servings.
