The Original Fast Food

Isn't it amazing that all the colors in the fruit are natural. Something so simple can be so healthy! As healthy as I eat I tend to get off track sometimes and forget how easy and simple fruit can be. Fruit is healthy and fills you up quickly.This is a great reminder.

Carnitas

One of my all time favorite food is MEXICAN!! I grew up in Southern California so it is basically in my blood. I love making carnitas because it is another crock-pot recipe that is really easy. The boys love it and my friends always love it too. When I make this for parties I also use it for pulled pork sandwiches. I'll buy tortillas, chips and toppings for tacos and burritos and also buy buns, bbq sauce and coleslaw. That way people have four different choices of food, including, tacos,burritos, nachos and pulled pork sandwiches. Recipe is below.

 




Ingredients
  • 1 Pork Butt
  • Lawry's Salt
  • Garlic Powder
  • paprika
  • 2 limes
Place the pork butt in the crock pot. Season both sides with dry ingredients. Be generous when your seasoning, as the pork butt is pretty big. Zest both limes on top of the pork butt. Squeeze juice from the limes on top letting some of the zest run to the bottom of the pot. Cook for 6 hours on high heat. Serve with your favorite toppings.

Let's Wine A Bit

I saw this limited release of Apothic Dark at the store the other day and it was a no brainer to get! My sister had recommended Apothic Red a while back and I loved it so I will be trying this tonight. I also put another wine graph from Wine Folly that I always refer to with my food. If you haven't been to there site and you love wine you will find it is super helpful. They have many posters to order that are great for framing. They are great to put next to your bar area or beverage cart.

Life Lately

Let me get back to blogging. My phone broke last week and I just got it fixed just in case you were wondering why I haven't been blogging! After not having my phone wow did I realize how much my life revolves around it. I know social media can be addicting and a waste of time but I really do love blogging my life away. I feel as long as I am not out of reality and still talk to people when they are present giving my full attention and not on my phone then it's ok. Balance Balance balance, right?!  I also missed my phone because I take so many pictures with it and listen to music ALL day so that was a big change! The pictures below I had before it broke and some I got from my girlfriends.


Might have seen this on facebook. The sunsets at my house are amazing lately.


BOOMER! I love that he isn't in daycare/preschool. One more year and he will be off too school and then have to work for the rest of his life. Kind of sad when you think about how busy our lives get. I am glad I am spending this precious time with him.

Fall Boots

Fall is here and that means it is boot season and time to cover those toes up! It was a little hard finding some new boots this year I like but of course I found some. I am definitely a little knee high obsessed. I love the look of the height and the fact it keeps you warm. In the winter I pretty much live in uggs and rainboots everyday then wear my more dressed up boots when I go out. I love my Tretorn rain boots I got last year. They are super soft inside and very comfortable. I might try Hunter this year as I know that is most peoples pick. Some boots I love below. I have the Tretorn Kelly Vinter and both Uggs below, everything eles is my wish wish. The Tretorn Skerry Spritz are great for around the house also. Very excited for cold weather :)

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

I read this book the other day and wanted to recommend it. I absolutely loved it. It's a pretty short book, only took a couple hours to read. It made me sit back, look at life and just be relaxed and feel peaceful about whatever situations come in my life. The book is called The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. You can get it on amazon here. Deeptak Chopra, the author as I am sure many of you have heard of is an phenomenal mind and body healer. From the best selling books he writes about hot yoga, meditation and spirituality, he is an amazing healer in all ways.


Taking some me time reading.
