Well you might be thinking all we do around here anymore is ride and wander the trails in Arizona. Well as good as that sounds like the title says “A Man’s Gotta Eat” and around here we do a lot of that and every bite a mouthful of heaven. Brenda has been using this new quick internet of ours to find some delicious recipes. And of course I have been called to duty to serve as the official tester of those recipe’s. As a warm-up for Christmas though she started with what we call Turtles and what Gina our friend in Denham Springs calls Millionaires.
Well whatever you call them they are just sinful they are so good.
After the Turtles were stowed in the refrigerator to tempt me everyday she whipped up a homemade soup, Cheese Corn Chowder, from the Pioneer Woman’s Blog. Mmm mmm good!
And if you eat something relatively healthy like homemade soup you have to follow up with a homemade apple pie for desert. That one is not off the internet but out of Brenda’s own cookbook. I think I am having a piece of that for breakfast tomorrow. WHAT, it is just fruit and a little sugar, sounds like a great healthy breakfast to me.
And you can’t just have one desert in the fridge so the other morning she whipped up these Peanut Butter Cup Brownies.
And then tonight it was Rib Eye Steak with Caesar Salad and
Bacon and Cheese Mashed Potatoes
Not many calories in that at all. But with all this eating going on I still had time to get out and take Willow for a ride around the neighbourhood today. She is pretty much getting used to all the dogs barking as she passes and the traffic on the roads. There is a field only about a block away from our place where we can get out and get a little exercise and there are lots of places to ride right close here too.
Just in case you were wondering I did eat a lot more salad than the pic above portrays.
But I am still planning of finishing up that apple pie for breakfast but I will skip the ice cream on top…..maybe!
