It is a strange time of year.  Anniversaries from loved ones passed, their birthdays and most of my closest friends, including myself celebrating another year.  This picture was very apt as I see others grieve for their loved ones.  Just like the ocean today, murky and unsettled it reflected my mood.


First up this morning was a nice cup of Beef Bone Broth with plenty of salt.  I find that this seems to fit into my lifestyle of a busy morning, before time to really get a good breakfast in.

However I did manage to sit myself down with a bowl of Slow Cooker Beef Stew.

Getting to the supermarket early paid off this morning as I took advantage of some specials.  While organic is best, it is not always readily available, so I just make do where I can.

Back home and unpacked the goodies.

A simple dish with cooked sliced Plantagenet Pork, avocado and cooked mushrooms with a side of sauerkraut.  While Plantagenet is not organic, this company has been instrumental in setting the free-range standards for pork.   They are feed predominantly by Milne Feeds.  I am currently on the hunt for Nitrate free bacon and thought the Plantagenet Pork may have been an easier option.

Into more food preparation.

I finally was able to source some chives for some Rutabaga Hashbrowns by Charlotte Smith at her blog Salixisme – AIP Living.

All ready to go

And then I decided to divide the recipe and keep to make fresh in the morning with breakfast.

Waiting in anticipation

Sage Chicken Breakfast Patties was next on the list.  I thought these would be great with the Rutabaga hashbrowns tomorrow. The only thing I didn’t have was the dried basil, but my taste test results say that they are fabulous!!!

Very sticky

Cooked up better than expected and sizzling well

Beet-Loaf (Meatloaf) was next the list.  Another from Charlotte Smith. Just mix it all together.

45 minutes later………..yum


Hubby cooked some chicken on the barbecue and with my busy day in the kitchen, made an easy salad of Mesclun Lettuce, roasted pumpkin and onions with my new favourite Coconut Aminos Barbecue sauce.

I must admit, I did feel like a nice glass of wine tonight, being Friday night an’all.  But that was a brief thought.  I’m better off without………
