hello? is this thing on :shock:
hi there. *jumps over the bush* i have a lot of explaining to do concerning my blog whereabouts. for now, i just wanted to come 'back' with a lil' shout out to my amazing hubby-face. i am so HONORED and PROUD to be his wife and teammate for life! he is the epitome of a #1 fan for real and God has blessed him to be an outstanding husband and father. God reminds me often as to why we were made for each other. i thank you for ALL you do for our family, Sonny!
hope your father's day weekend was spent honoring and remembering true fathers everywhere.
i can't get over how much my itty, bitty BABY has grown, my goodness. to watch him do for himself 90 percent of the time these days gives me such a proud, bittersweet feeling. i'm sure mothers everywhere can relate.
we headed to celebrate with our parents on Sunday afternoon.
so, originally, i had an AWESOME restaurant picked out for dinner...but i remembered one very crucial thing as we were on the way.
and what do ya know, Sonny's brother and lady, Kara, were there enjoying the game as well! i definitely didn't plan that but it worked out perfectly. they ordered those 'bigger than the state of Texas' nachos up there and i almost knocked my water-glass over scrambling for my phone to take a pic. what can i say, food excites me! they are monstrous in person and they threw in the towel early on them! Sonny stuck with salmon, rice, and veggies, since he is training, and i ordered a baja grilled shrimp salad with romaine, black beans, roasted corn, red bell pepper, cotija cheese, dressing on the side. i ordered the 'healthiest' thing i could find on the menu for Chiso, which were those fried sweet potato tots. they were DELISH but were way too sweet from the added sugars.
cheese pizza wasn't on the menu but i asked and they made one for Chiso. love that! #score
Wally World had these ginormous red bell peppers for just 44 cents each this weekend. couldn't pass it up so i got a few and made the recipe you're about to read right now:
- 1 lb lean sirloin
- 1 large chopped red bell pepper
- 1/2 chopped yellow onion
- 3 stalks chopped green onion
- 4 tbsp liquid aminos
- 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
- 1 tsp pecan, hickory, or mesquite liquid smoke
- 2-3 tbsp of your favorite low-no sodium seasoning
- 2 tbsp chopped cilantro (optional)
add half of the veggies to your crock pot, then lay sirloin on top. add the rest of the veggies on top of the meat. dump all seasonings, liquids, and herbs on top of meat. set crock pot on the lowest setting and cook the sirloin for 6 hours, or 4 hours on high. it will be moist, juicy, and FORK TENDER BABY!
*i didn't measure the ingredients the first time honestly and it turned out great. but if you find comfort in following a recipe, i estimated as best i could! feel free to do your own thing with it, as you should *
then you can have something like my meal 5 from tonoooight:
boom. pow. ta-dow.
