Yesterday was so much fun and today is one of my favorite Fridays of the entire year! It’s relaxing and calm. 🙂
For today, I thought I would show you 10 of my favorites to buy for yourself or others (They all make great gifts)! What way to kick off the season than getting something for free?! Make sure you check out the giveaway at the bottom! It will last one week and the winner will be announced December 4th, 2017.
I love the feeling of a hearty breakfast right around the holidays. Hearty doesn’t have to mean added calories though. Clean and quality ingredients go a long way, friends.
Picture this: Thanksgiving eve you prepare the sausage, egg mixture, and simply cover with some foil and place in the fridge. When you wake up on Thanksgiving morning, the only thing you need to do is preheat the oven and wait 30 minutes until the quiche is fully cooked. Eric and I definitely ate a large portion though because it was just too good. Doubling the recipe is never a bad idea if you have two pie pans on hand. 😉
Make your mornings delicious and simple so you can watch more of the Macy’s Day Parade with family. 🙂
1 lb ground sausage
1 Tbsp whole milk
S & P to taste
Optional toppings: Sriracha, salsa
What to do:
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Cook sausage until fully brown on medium heat. Drain grease. Grease a pie pan with organic butter. Pour sausage into pie pan and spread evenly. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour over sausage. Tilt the pie pan if needed to make sure the egg mixture is evenly spread as well.
Cook for 30 minutes or until the edges are slightly brown. Cut a slice and top with the toppings listed above. 🙂
How is Thanksgiving next week already?! How? I am SO excited for some down time with friends and family. But first, I’m sharing some of my very favorites from this week!
Urban Southern was on Fox News and I am SO proud of them! I love their roots, company, and products. They are just great all around! 🙂
Two.On a whim, I went to a local shop and bought a metal planter/bin the other week (similar to this one). But, I wasn’t sure what I would use it for or where I would put it.
As I was driving home, a local florist was giving away some flowers and plants because they were moving to a new location. My point is, that this bin and random plant makes a little space where I have some Christmas decorations. I love it and know I will use it through all different seasons. 🙂 Plus, the price (which is similar to what I paid)!
Um..we have a half day of school tomorrow and time to work on report cards. All the teachers will understand how that is definitely a necessary favorite!
Four.I just love these mugs. They are a favorite. 🙂
It’s flavorful and light with beautiful colors all around. This salad is a perfect side dish to pair for Thanksgiving, anytime, or even as a main meal by simply doubling the recipe. Although collard greens or dino kale may not be first on your list, giving this a try will definitely not leave you disappointed and will be sure to expand your tastes buds. Plus, quick and easy is always a plus! Enjoy!
8 leaves of dinosaur kale or collard greens (either taste great with this recipe!)
1/4 cup golden raisins
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp (separate) EVOO
1 Tbsp pine nuts
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste
splash of water
What to do:
Tear greens into about 1 inch pieces. In a large pan, pour 1 Tbsp EVOO and turn to medium heat. Pour greens into pan. Cook for about 10 minutes or until the greens are slightly wilted. Stir occasionally. With about a minute remaining, add garlic and a splash of water and stir together. Remove from heat and place greens and garlic mixture into a medium sized bowl. Dress the mixture with the remaining ingredients and mix. Serve immediately.
