It’s officially Fall! –does happy dance- this means pumpkins, warm mugs, flannel, running outside ( when I get this boot off), cooler workouts in our CrossFit gym, and camping!
I find out this afternoon if I can finally take this boot off my foot and FINALLY get to wear two matching shoes again. I had to buy new CrossFit shoes and I have only broken in the right one! I am SO excited to get back into running. I was getting in my groove of running when I broke my foot. My kinda luck. But I plan on signing up for more races next year since I loved running my first 10K back in May. I think I am going to sign my mom and I up for the Color Run 5k! Those always looked like so much fun! Have any of you tried it? If so, would you recommend the day or night one?
I also want to try one of those Spartan races! Wear you leap over fire, crawl in the mud, and have the time of your life!
But since I am not physically capable at the moment, I have focused on my lifting techniques at the gym and even managed to PR my snatch ( Olympic lift) with a boot! Pretty proud of that!
We had another relaxing weekend. Finished watching the 4th season of Hell on Wheels and I am now sad. I want to watch more! Any other binge worthy shows on Netflix?
I also made a big batch of Slow Cooker Creamy Butternut Soup! SO GOOD.
I also did A LOTof Pintersting. I have rediscovered my Fall wardrobe and since I am terrible about pairing outfits together I consult Pinterest. Lol
We did some productive things too, like work on our new logo for The Kitcheneer along with the final touches on our new ebook!
And after such a lazy day, I was in no mood to do a lot of kitchen work so I lazily made a one pot dish that we both loved and I know you will too!
Lots of veggies are sautéed in ghee butter, and then add some Whole30 compliant chicken sausage and you are in business!
1 tbs of ghee butter ( or clarified butter) or your choice of cooking fat
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 medium sized red potatoes, diced
2 bell peppers cut into strips
1 small onion, diced
1 package of chicken sausage, cut into pieces (the apple flavor is Whole30 compliant)
In a sauce pan, bring 3 cups of water to a boil and add potatoes and boil until soft but not falling apart ( 10 min)
In a large skillet, add ghee on medium heat until melted
Add garlic and onion, saute for 5 minutes or until softer and translucent
Add potatoes and stir them in.
Sauté potatoes for 5 min
Add bell peppers and sausage
Stir frequently ( every 2-3 minutes) until sausage has browned
Serve on its own or on top of cauliflower rice!
