I Made Meatloaf

You guys!

I. Made. Meatloaf.

Okay, this may be a very small accomplishment for most people out there but for me it is HUGE!

If you know me, you definitely know that I didn’t grow up hanging out in the kitchen with my parents and boiling rice, wasn’t my forte.

Growing up, I had a easy bake oven and I loved it.

I loved being able to throw something I mixed together into a “oven” then tossed it into the microwave — as sad as that sounds. But the best part was when my brother would enjoy them as well. He would always encourage me to make cakes because he always loved eating them.

My parents both shared the responsibility of cooking in our house, but my dad was the main cook in our household.

My dad would get home earlier than my mom and so he would stop at the grocery store, pick up whatever it is that they were cooking and get things started. My mom would get home and help him in the kitchen and then we would eat.

On occasion I would help cut up some things at times but I was too “slow” for my dad and he would just usher me to the side so he could finish cooking.

When it was time to be a wife and cook things on my own, I was happy that I lucked out and married a guy who grew up in a household of cookers and loved to cook himself.

But then he found a job that required him to work nights and the responsibility of cooking fell on me, I knew making sandwiches wasn’t going to get me too far or him for that matter.

I was a horrible cook, besides cutting up “seasoning” onions [that was an issue in itself], cilantro, and tomatoes. It was possible that I could potentially kill you with a meal.

I couldn’t even boil rice y’all and to this day I absolutely hate cooking rice on the stove top, I honestly prefer to do it in a rice cooker.

If you follow me on social media you are aware now-a-days, it is a bit different and I have come a long way since my burnt rice and easy bake oven days. I have upgraded to an actual oven and I am decent in the kitchen.

I love finding new recipes on Pinterest and while this may show my age, I really love getting new cookbooks as gifts, or things I steal from my friends [with their knowledge, of course].

Easy Turkey Breakfast Bowl

Good morning my loves!

I am so excited to get back to blogging and reaching out to the people I love. Honestly as much as compliments are few on here from my readers and family I love hearing them but I also love your feed back whether it is good or bad.

So if you want me to keep my food recipes or post I can't really say recipes then let me know, if you want them gone let me know!

Today's food post is all about breakfast, the most important meal of the day and most of the time like all mom's my breakfast is coffee in a tumbler, or sippy cup of I'm being real. But on the weekends when E is actually home we make breakfast.

This recipe is simple cut up all of your veggies, I did yellow bell pepper, onions, and garlic but you can add red bell peppers, green, and orange to add color totally up to you.

Cut all of those up and set them aside, because you'll want to cook your ground turkey, or beef if you prefer. We are trying to eat leaner so turkey is best.

Once your meat is cooked add in your vegetables and let those get tender, once those are tender make a hole in the middle of it all to add your eggs. This allows your eggs to cook in the middle without mixing it into your meat which will make it harder for the eggs to cook evenly.

Once your eggs cook somewhat then you can fold in your meat and veggies, I made the mistake of adding my eggs and mixing everything into them and it took much longer to cook the eggs. E loves soft scramble eggs so those weren't achieveable when you mix everything together initially.

I buttered some french bread slices and then toasted them in a nonstick skillet and added them to the bowl. Topped with spicy sauce of your liking and enjoy.
