Eat Your Veggies Buddha Bowl!

We escaped Irma!!!  This past week has not been one of my favorites at all.  Since living in South Florida, it was quite possibly my most stressful week to date.  After two days of trying to decide what to do in regards to this hurricane, I packed us up in a matter of minutes, threw as much stuff into the car that would fit and we left…..

Thai Beef – 3 Ways!

We LOVE Thai food around here, but we’ve gotten to where we really don’t eat out much anymore…for a couple of reasons:  1) We eat organic 100% of the time at home and when you go out to eat, you don’t always know what you’re eating.  2) We have an 18 month old little girl that has a very small attention span.  Eating a long, leisurely meal doesn’t happen very much right now!  SO…when we’re craving something authentic, I get out my recipe books and start brainstorming!

Wild Salmon is a major staple ingredient in our home.  It’s one of those foods we eat at least two times a week if not more.  Oddly enough, it’s the only protein I can get my little girl to eat.  She might eat three bites of chicken before she throws it all in the floor…beef she won’t touch with a 10 foot pole…BUT salmon?!?!  Oh yes!!  The girl will eat up some salmon!!
