Baconnaise & Wheel Bugs

I guess I go through cycles where I blog a lot and cycles where I barely eek out any posts at all. Bummer, this is one of the times I am slowwwww…

Let’s talk food. Brad and I found some quality frozen black angus burgers at walmart, so we skilleted them up and put them on sweet potato pancake buns, and topped them with spinach, beer mustard and baconnaise. I highly recommend eating all your paleo-style burgers on top of pancakes.


Next we have a homemade paleo-style pesto from Well Fed  (akaThe Clothes Make the Girl). Along with her Best Damn Chicken you’ll ever eat on top of spaghetti squash. And Brad invited some zucchini to that party. My boyfriend is a genius… don’t be jealous 🙂20130617-100430.jpg

For lunch the next day I made PaleOMG’s rutabaga egg nests with some applegate farms frozen sausage because I had a coupon! Holy cow, it was in the frozen section at walmart! That’s the ONLY Applegate Farms product I could find there—so go get it! They are super delicious and convenient.20130617-100438.jpg

Eggs, bacon, and applegate farms sausage. With sweet potato hash browns all did up in my cast iron skillet. I don’t recommend using cast iron for that project in the future. Even though I seasoned it according to nom nom paleo’s guide, certain things still tend to stick to it unless you put a little elbow grease behind you efforts. I wouldn’t try pancakes in it either, honestly.


Gosh I love breakfast food.

On Friday night I had a little mini dinner party at my house with Brad and Zach. We roasted a chicken, made spice market kale, sautéed mushrooms and some broccolini. It was tasty! Lots of flavor up in there. Used some of the leftover spice mix from the “Best Damn Chicken” recipe on the roasted chicken.20130617-100517.jpgHere is my guilty pleasure of the week:20130617-100505.jpg

I first tried these coconut water wonders at Regionals. They were handing them out for free at the Vita Coco Coconut Water booth. I was dying of thirst and exhaustion, so the hydration plus caffeine was exactly what I needed. They have lots of sugar, though. So be careful if you accidentally become addicted to these! I warned you. Really, I did.

Have you ever heard of a “wheel bug“???


I saw one outside of my apartment and freaked out because I didn’t know what the heck it was. Facebook solved the mystery, though. They can leave a painful bite but are considered beneficial insects because they eat pests (soft bodied bugs like caterpillars and Japanese beetles). They are super creepy looking, though. Hey, I am going to go running this week! For the first time in a VERY long time…

And because this picture is awesomesauce:

    Your food always looks so good and makes me hungry…and I just ate lunch! I’ve never heard of a wheel bug. Enjoy your run! This time of year I get so jazzed about running….which is good because I start marathon training next week!

      OOh! What distance do you start training runs at? Isn’t it awfully hot! What do you do to keep cool and hydrated?
