One of my favorite meals of the day is breakfast. Craziest part is that during the week I often have some oatmeal, cereal or something that can be quickly made. I wake up at the very last moment every morning, roll outta bed and try to get ready as quickly as possible. I wish I could slow it down, but mornings must not be in my genes. Because this girl just can’t do it! That being said, making breakfast on the weekends is something my husband looks forward to. So much so that he will starve himself till I make it! How crazy is he? And how unhealthy is that? He always has some crazy ideas for breakfast and asks me to create them for the “blog”(I personally believe it’s his way of trying to convince me….sneaky men!). I think I may start featuring some of the ridiculousness real soon.
These are a wonderful homemade hash brown with one of my favorite spices; rosemary. The way fresh herbs fill a room when being diced is so wonderful or the way dried spices mix with a lovely baked meal relax me and put me in a place of bliss. Yeah cooking does that for me! These are simple, yet delicious. And that is a-okay for me.
Ingredients: Yields 4 servings
- 2lb small yellow potatoes cut in halves
- 1T dried rosemary
- 1t seat salt
- 2T EVOO
Directions: Preheat oven to 375c, toss all ingredients and place on baking pan. Bake for 25min or till potatoes are cooked and slightly browned.
That’s it! I promise the simplicity of them is a whole lot of YESSSS in the tummy area 🙂
Being healthy is always something I strive to do. Though when I get busy I find my gym visits can get down to once a week and my ridiculous brain will start finding aspects of myself that I dislike. I tell myself not to think like that, but not everyone can be 100% positive all the time. And honestly I am okay with that. I am human living in a rough world. So my goal for this week is to not find silly things to bring me down! Being healthy and happy is all a girl can ask for? Well that and shoes. Shoes always make my
feet me happy 🙂
I did however make it to the gym today, will tomorrow and sneak one in either Friday or Sunday…Saturday is reserved for the Winnipeg Wine Festival! Every year I take my mom for Mothers day, we taste wines from all around the world and get giddy. Perfect Saturday afternoon. Back to the gym workout today, this is actually a repeat from last week(I try to do each workout session twice but try and lift heaver weights). It was a back and biceps day.
Really enjoyed this workout. Some of you may recognize it from Jamie Eason’s Livefit workout plan. And you would be correct! I am just taking the day to day plans. It has been wonderful so far. And very focused.
Well Tia is tapping me…it’s 8pm and time for her dinner! Hope you all are having a wonderful evening!!
