what I ate #20

I've been eating well in the new year! (I know you were concerned!) 2015, thus far has been all about parlaying one meal into an entirely different  meal…….let me prove my point:

Once morning's buttermilk biscuits…. (by the way, I've made my share of buttermilk biscuits and these are by far the easiest most low maintenance biscuit I've ever come across)

Become tomorrow's egg sandwich. 

becomes tomorrow bahn mi! (With a leftover broth dipping sauce)

I've also been loving baked sweet potatoes for breakfast. Just cube, drizzle with bacon fat, salt and pepper and whole, fresh sage leaves and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes!

But the home run discovery this month has been this crispy salmon with with strawberry basil salsa!!!

All this and we're not even two weeks out yet!!!

happy new years!!!

So, it would be prudent of me to resolve to post more, but truth be told, with an impending move and a book coming out in May I don't know that that is possible!!

Happy 2015!! Hope yours is off to a new start. I am home with a sick pickle, but he enjoyed his first two days back at school. Since I can't get any real work done with a child at home, I have spent the day…wait for it…..creating a powerpoint presentation about our guinea pigs for Doodle's upcoming kindergarten share. I kid you not. 

I have things to share with you! Mr. P's hockey 9th birthday party, things I cooked over the break! Our new obsession with hiking!

But for now, I'll leave you with my new author website. It's a work in progress, but feel free to bookmark it and visit when you'd like to be up on my latest writing news. If you're a blogger who'd like to host me for an author interview, a book giveaway or anything else, let me know!
