Hey…whats going on world? It has been a long and busy weekend for me!
Friday was pretty relaxing, plus I still wasn’t feeling too well. My honey and I got the movie “This is Forty” from Redbox and it was HILARIOUS!!!! It was totally us except the roles were reversed! Then I got Netflix and stayed up until 2am watching stuff! It may have been a bad idea.
Saturday was a blast..until it wasn’t. HA! We had plans to do A LOT of things that were going on around our area (Earth Day Dallas, Taco Festival, Deep Ellum Art Walk…) Well Jason, my fiance, used to DJ and the record store two blocks over was having a “National Record Store Day Festival” So we went to check that out first and found out that if you purchase a $5 souvenir cup you get to drink beer for FREE….ALL DAY….come and go as you please!
We were there on and off from 10am until 830pm so pretty much the rest of the day was out the window. It was a lot of fun and there were SO many great bands performing, they were giving away band stickers and posters and tees for free, there were food trucks out there…
but you can only handle so much…but I can only handle so much! Called it a night so I was prepared for SUNDAY.
So today I had to go into work from 830am until noon. We had about 20 volunteers from Fellowship Church Dallas come and pull weed, plant flowers and mulch the entire playground. We worked so hard and even endured pulling up POISON IVY! Which is scary because it was on the PLAYGROUND!
The rest of the day has been really relaxing…watching my obsession on Netflix “DR WHO” and cooking dinner. Thought I would be a little creative in the kitchen today and made up a dish of my own (can’t really claim it as my own…I’m sure others have made this or something like it) Below is the recipe, it turned out DELICIOUS and they whole house smells so good!
- 2 tbsp Organic Coconut Oil
- Dash of Cinnamon
- Sea Salt
- Red pepper flakes
- 1 Large Sweet Potato
- 1 Bunch of fresh spinach
- 1 lb ground sirloin (you could use ground turkey or chicken if you like)
- Cooked Brown Rice
In a skillet add two tbsp coconut oil and peeled/diced sweet potato with a dash of cinnamon, red pepper flakes and a pinch of sea salt. Fry over medium high until potatoes are soft and brown color to them.
Add in the fresh spinach and cover so it can wilt down.
While it is wilting in a separate skillet brown the beef/turkey/chicken. Then drain and add to the sweet potato/spinach mixture.
Serve with brown rice on the side and ENJOY!
