My Own Private Idaho

… After all is said and done, usually more is said than done…

Sausage Gravy and Biscuit Bake…

There comes a time in your life when you find something you never knew you were even looking for.

So I have been trying to get back into a reasonably healthy lifestyle – I even bought skipping rope and new pairs of running shoes.

I also felt that part of my problem was that I had gotten into a food rut – cooking the same meals over and over again became boring quick.

But then I went to my ‘knight in shining armour’ – and found so many lovely dishes.

Last night I tried the keto sausage gravy and biscuit bake and it came out lovely.

Add that to my repertoire.

Now I just need to start jogging πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ


Snacks Snacks Snacks

Back at it again – decided to make some snacks that I would not feel guilt munching.

So I went back to my trusted almond flour cookies πŸͺ (I really need to learn to make more snacks)

This time, however I used ghee instead of butter as I did not have the patience to wait for it to melt. I also put my dough in the fridge overnight – I believed it helped its texture.

I also made vegetable sauce. So ten points for me…

Picking up the Pieces…

Well I have been away from this blog for a while. It is however time to get back.

This is the ‘Spring Clean’ season and like many, I plan to participate.

Mine would however include foods and habits that needs to be taken down.

Regarding habits, I bought a skipping rope and plan to get a new pair of sneakers πŸ‘Ÿ soon. πŸ€”

The food part is a bit dicey as I don’t want to just scrap all my bad food habits – but rather eliminate them one by one. First to go though is Aunt Anne’s Pretzels πŸ₯¨.

Sooo I made bagels with mozzarella cheese, cream cheese and almond flour.

My bookshelf gets the spring clean treatment today though so I need to go grab that cup of β˜•οΈ

Easter 🐣 Things…

The Holy Week has come and all the festivities with it. Easter eggs and Easter bunnies and Easter everything in between and you would be forgiven if you forget the reason behind the Easter.

So did I – I went on a feeding spree – the likes I had not embarked on since Christmas.

I ate everything in sight.

Well I am back from that food trip and I’m back to looking for my broccoli rice and cauliflower florets…


Yesterday I misplaced my water bottle – πŸ˜’ It wasn’t the most expensive of bottles but I really did like it.

Needless to say, I got home and needed to do something calming. Cue cooking (I’m weird I know)

I grilled chicken for my fridge and made some almond flour biscuits. They both came out great.

I also made some soup but I did not take photos of it…

Spring Do…πŸ‘©πŸΎβ€βš•οΈπŸ‘©πŸΎβ€βš•οΈπŸ‘©πŸΎβ€βš•οΈ

Today, I succumbed and went to my stylist. I couldn’t afford the 4 hours it would have taken me to tighten my own locs. I also had to treat my hair so I went to my hair stylist.

I feel like a brand new human – A well made hair would do that to you.

Now I just need to see how long my hair remains neat.

Stuffed Courgettes…

Hey Hoo…

I have been away from here for a bit. Well this morning I woke up and decided to finally try stuffed courgettes.

I must say that it will definitely become a staple for me. I also used my last mozzarella to make pork rinds flat bread.

Safe to say I am partially ready for the weekend…



Beauty of the Mundane…

For the past few days I have not written anything on my blog. Most times when I am not on here I usually blame a busy life.

This time around it was just mundane things. Day by day living and it was nice.

Over the last week we celebrated International Women’s Day and Mother’s Day – in my opinion those should be everyday but hey…

We also lost Professor Stephen Hawking. Funny story – I actually got introduced to him through Big Bang Theory and then I went to search on his life. What an impressive life.

I bought a salmon, made salad, made keto cheese bread (forgot to mix in almond flour), beef patties and washed my hair… The beauty of the mundane…

Oh yes – I also watched the new season of Jessica Jones on Netflix.

A great week indeed…

Cave-woman’s Spread… πŸ₯˜πŸ₯˜πŸ₯˜

I stocked up on meat last night – pork ribs, lamb ribs, lamb bones- you name it, I got it. I also got frozen corn on the cob.

To think I only went in to get cucumbers πŸ˜‚

So today I decided to make a roast lunch.

It was so filling that I did not need my flat bread anymore.

Good times…
