Love Wins

….and I don’t mind💗

💗

Back in the day, I thought using the L word would make me vulnerable and wide open for heartbreak. I was always like… I love you, but I don’t love you, love. There are levels to this ish, and you’re just on level one boo.

Breakfast Is Served

What is your favorite meal to eat every day? I love breakfast. I like to get up drink 28 ounces of water as soon as my feet hit the floor. When I’m focusing One leaning out I get up at 5 o’clock in the morning and I work out for 60 minutes then I eat. I’m a typical person, I’m not a big fancy breakfast eater I keep it simple.

My go to breakfast is a cup of coffee, a sausage, cheese and mushroom omelette. Then on the side I either have an avocado or a vegetable mix. Now let me be honest if I had a chef I would switch it up. You know switch it to something super complicated and fancy. My breakfast would look like it belonged on a magazine cover.

But since my life is not set up like that at this current time I keep it simple and yet tasty.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • Mushrooms
  • Sausage
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Cheddar cheese
  • 3 tbsp Milk

Place your sausage and a large heated pan. Once it is completely browned remove.

In a small bowl beat eggs and milk mixture together and add to the same pan that was used to cook your sausage. Let cook on medium heat for 2 minutes and then add mushrooms, sausage and cheese. Cook for 3 minutes moving the pan around so that the uncooked yolk can find its way to the heated pan. Then fold the omelette in half and flip.

Serve warm and add an avocado for a tasty side.

How to gain 5 pounds in 10 minutes Mac and Cheese

Maybe it’s just my metabolism but I think I could gain 5 pounds just by sniffing this mac and cheese. I’m used to making my mac and cheese with cauliflower (https://belladonnasflashlight.blog/2018/06/22/cauliflower-mac-and-cheese/ ) but this time I went all out and made sure I had all the ingredients that would make my greedy husband and son smile.

I didn’t hold back on the calories with this goody and sometimes you shouldn’t but just be mindful of your servings. Portion control is everything and a little exercise before consumption is highly recommended.

Oven on 375°

10 to 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 Box of pasta
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cups of milk
  • 3 tbs butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic or 1tbs of garlic powder
  • 1 cup mild cheddar
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar
  • 1 cup mozzarella
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese

Cook your pasta as suggested on the back of the packaging. Drain and shake parmesan cheese and melted butter on top and set aside.

In a large bowl add your eggs, milk garlic powder pepper and salt. Stir until everything is mixed thoroughly. Set aside.

Sprinkle your cheese all on top of your pasta in a large nonstick pan. Then pour your milk mixture on top. Using a wooden spoon push down on the mixture to make sure your milk is evenly distributed on your dish. Place in oven for 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes and serve warm.

Southern Tasting Apple Cobbler In A Crock Pot

I have tried several ways to make my apple cobbler and apple crisp but this is by far the best way. I promise you will love it and refuse to make any other way. This recipe is short, easy and to the point. I bet you have everything you need right in your cupboards.

You literally need 15 minutes and then 2 hours to let it cook in your crockpot. I always make this when I’m invited to a party or trying to lift the mood of one of my kids or husband. I want them to feel that I deeply care about their problem but the truth is I don’t have time to REALLY care unless it’s a serious issue. Fortunately, haven’t experienced that just your average teenage meltdown.

INGRIDIENTS

  • 5 Large Red apples
  • 1 Box of yellow cake mix
  • 1-1/2 Sticks of butter
  • 2 Cups of sparkling cider
  • 3/4 Cups of brown sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 tbs Cinnamon

Place crockpot on high to begin warming for your delicious dessert.

Slice apples very thin and place in a large bowl. Add cider, brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Stir until and place mixture in heated crock pot.

Add yellow cake mix on top of crockpot mixture, melt butter and pour top. Cook for 2 hours. Unplug crockpot and let cool for 15 minutes before serving. Serve with two scoops of vanilla bean ice cream.

Crowded Places

Never really reacted to well in a crowded place. Following behind others hopes and dreams, afraid to be seen as an individual or different if you will. Living behind the shadows of the ones that I admire until they disappoint me with revealing their own insecurities and guilty pleasures. During their reveal, you realize their human, nothing special. Just a mediocre gutless, spineless, mortal that too chooses to hide in crowded places. So I advise you to step away from the crowd and find out who you are.

I remember being a kid and looking up to and worshiping this one individual. I can’t even put into words how I felt when I saw them fall and burst into flames right before my eyes. Their ashes fell to my feet and I gently stepped over them and made a promise to myself. I swore that I would never feel that level of disappointment again. I distanced myself from all crowded places.

Working on you becomes satisfying and complete when you separate yourself from all the unnecessary noise. Some may view you as reclusive but really you function more effectively without drivel. Once I evacuated from the crowded place I could breathe and see all the perfections that I carry. I stopped telling myself that I’m not good enough, but I’m worthy. Crowded places will have you guessing your self-worth and hesitation becomes your companion. Until you remove yourself you can’t help but compare and compete. Which, in return will more times than not end in disappointment. But with space, you will learn that the best competition is you vs you.

With self-growth and maturity, crowded places are just that. Crowded and leaving you without room to grow into being your own hero.
