Hi all!
Hope you enjoyed your weekend!


Two of my favorite side dishes are:


First up,
Roasted Veggies
(I make these on Sunday’s and they last me for the beginning part of the week!)

I just take a few bags of frozen veggies
(or fresh)
put them onto a pan, spray with olive oil
& cook at 350 Degrees for an hour!

so easy & yummy!


Thanks to PAPACAKES for teaching me his grilling ways.

I’d like to start a new blog revolution…

He is the KING of grilling around here Winking smile

He recently has been making these grilled brussel sprouts
& they are TOO DIE FOR.

They are so simple & easy!

  • Just chop the brussel sprouts which ever way you’d like
  • put into a foil pan
  • add 1/4 cup olive oil
  • shake a sprinkle of Sea Salt & Pepper
  • Toss to coat the brussels 


  • Next, cover the foil pan with a layer of foil
  • Place onto the grill on LOW heat
  • Close lid & let cook for about 20-25 minutes

  • I like mine tender so sometimes I leave them on for 30 minutes,
    but they will get all caramelized & delicious!

You can do this with any veggies but brussels are killer on the grill!

So special shout out to papacakes for Father’s Day
& maybe one day I can be on his level of grilling!

    1) Oven-roasted asparagus with olive oil, salt, pepper, and a ton of fresh garlic. Serve hot.
    2) Oven-roasted cauliflower with olive oil, salt, pepper, and a ton of turmeric. Serve hot, but cold leftovers are pretty awesome, too (and are a great addition to a spinach salad).
    3) Oven-roasted beets with olive oil, salt, pepper, a touch of balsamic vinegar. Serve with a few toasted walnuts or pecans. This is excellent hot or cold.
    4) Cucumber salad with onions, fresh dill, a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. Serve cold.
    5) Sauerkraut with shredded carrots. Serve cold.

    Items #2, #3, #4, and #5 make excellent picnic food.

    Does it turn out fine roasting frozen veggies? I love RAW, but sometimes the convenience of frozen works better with time!!

  9. Most people that snore are truly lying on their back.

    This creates the right scenario for the vibrations that lead
    to snoring. Loose tissue inside your throat is pulled down by gravity and also you end up obtaining vibrations if you breathe in.
    In case you just roll onto your side, the tissue falls for the side and the
    airways open. The important to possessing a person sleep on their side all evening is completed by
    sewing a tennis ball in to the back of a shirt. That signifies once they try
    to roll onto their back the tennis ball is inside the way and they will go back
    on their side.
