Poetry Taste #20: "St. Paddy's Day This Year"


St. Paddy's Day Decor

It is different this year,
When celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.
I usually enjoy hard cider since I don’t like beer.

It is on a community food truck night over here,
Which means at least it falls on a Friday.
So it is different this year.

I have a planned path I need to adhere
To; being alcohol-free with no leeway.
I usually enjoy hard cider since I don’t like beer.

Instead I’ll focus on a relaxed atmosphere,
With mocktails, a minty milkshake or green entree.
Which makes it different this year.

How different I’ll need to celebrate is clear.
And from my plan, I won’t stray.
I usually enjoy hard cider since I don’t like beer.

Regardless of the festivities, there’ll be lots of cheer,
And the mood won’t be dull & grey.
It really is different this year,
Since I usually enjoy hard cider because I don’t like beer.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Poetry Taste #19: "Morning Grass"

The grass, wet with dew,

Sparkles in the Spring sun like

Crystals on the ground.

Vegetable Elf Hats Appetizer

As Christmas is finally upon us yet again, there are many holiday and Christmas themed appetizers to eat this time of year. I was recently told to eat a low carb diet now by my doctor. I thought about how other people might need to be adjust their food plans for health reasons too, and about Christmas foods this year for holiday get-togethers and parties.

Since vegetables are great for those who need to eat healthy and lower in carbs, I came up with an easy & quick vegetable & cheese appetizer version of the Fruit Santa Hats dessert that works with low carb meal plans. Called Vegetable Elf Hats – due to utilizing both red & green colors – they are like the Santa Hats in design but is made of vegetables and cheese. Like my fruit Santa hats dessert, the vegetable Elf Hats appetizer is an easy, quick, and healthy appetizer to make and eat for holiday get-togethers.

Hope you all enjoy!

Poetry Taste #18: "Life is Grand”

My romantic life is grand.
There is lots of sweet laughter.
I have pretty rings on my left hand.

Before, the days were bland,
And real love was what I sought after.
Now my romantic life is grand.

I can have affection and love on demand.
I have found my happily ever after,
And am loving the pretty rings on my left hand.

Ask for your desire - and life turns out better than planned.
I’m loving this new life chapter.
My romantic life is grand.

No longer do I feel lost in a woodland.
I left the single life behind with a delightful answer.
I am loving the pretty rings on my left hand.

Solidified in a ceremony with colorful sand,
I became a Mrs. within four years’ time worth of intriguing banter.
Now my romantic life is grand.
I love my hubby, and the pretty rings on my left hand.

Shrimp and Spinach Salad

A simple and healthy salad is a great meal to have if you want to eat healthy. Salads are a great way to eat light but feel full.

I've been researching the best and healthiest foods to incorporate into my daily meals. My plan is to incorporate as many fish and healthy products as I can. 

Being a very creative person, I enjoy mixing different fruits and vegetables together. This Shrimp and Spinach Salad - made with my own sauce/dressing - is the result of this second creative meal. I decided to share the recipe to my second creative salad with all of you. Hope you enjoy it!

Spinach and Cheese Egg Mini Muffins Recipe

As a busy person, it can be hard to find the time to cook, sit down, and have a healthy breakfast before heading out of the house early in the morning or if you have a busy day in general. It can be even harder if you spent part of your morning working out, in addition to getting ready for the day.

Since I don't always have time during the week to cook a healthy breakfast, I've started doing the prep work the night before or over the weekend so that I can just take my healthy breakfast from the fridge and have it with me on the go. My search for healthy breakfast items led me to discover egg mini muffins.
