One of those days

Some days I feel like a super mom. Other days I feel like a really terrible mom. Today I feel like a meh kind of mom. Or maybe blah.

Beef and Pork Sausage Meatballs

Beef and Sausage meatballs served over leftover sweet potato hash

I created my own Paleo Recipe! That is to say, I deliberately put together ingredients and kept track of what I was doing in the hope that I could share it later. I’m very excited.

This was what I had on hand and it turned out tasting pretty good! I served my meatballs on top of leftover sweet potato hash with some baby carrots on the side. The carrots were the only vegetables I had left! Everything else went into the meatballs.

On with the recipe … 🙂 (I’ve always wanted to write that!) Continue reading

No, we were not successful in going 30 days with out cheats and making our weekly exercising goals.

But we did learn a lot and I consider the challenge a success and here’s why:
