We always have a ton of people at the house that like to eat so I am constantly cooking something and thinking of new things. I try for healthy and preservative free which is my whole shtick. I’ve been eating this way for years and I do believe that it will increase life expectancy. What I’m not happy about is GMO’s, but that’s an important story for another day.
Last night for dinner I made Grandma’s chicken. Not my Grandma, but I doctored the recipe enough to make it my own.
This chicken is baked in the oven uncovered and turns out perfect every time…and is so easy to make!
I’ve decided to mostly cut out my carbs because when I was eating Paleo it seemed to really work for me. The carbs that I am referring to are refined; I am able to get fibrous carbs from green vegetables.
I LOVE Brussel Sprouts
The perfect meal.
Of course I made dessert. Homemade Carrot Cake! It turned out fantastic and had a hint of cinnamon and spice. The kids liked it, so I guess I would label it “kid friendly”.
Eat Dessert First
Aren’t those plates adorable? I picked up a bunch of them at a garage sale last year that I just happened upon.

A bit ago my cat had kittens. (We didn’t even know she was pregnant, so surprise! Two of the kittens met their demise (um, our neighbor mistakenly drove over one) but this one has survived and his name is Fatty thanks to Sophia. We keep our animals outside, we have 2 dogs and a huge area for them to run and a large dog house, 24 chickens and 3 cats.
Fatty the Kitten
I would love to bring him inside, but can’t stand the destruction that pets cause (and their messes!)
It’s supposed to be a beautiful day in Georgia today, even though we got a frost last night.
Coming soon: pictures of my winter garden (you have to love Georgia!!) and today Sean has a “Thanksgiving Lunch” at school so I will be sure to post pictures of the chaos.
Enjoy your Friday! Baby, It’s Cold Outside!
