Hail the mighty Instagram!

Ok, I bit.  Instagram is fun! This same thing happened when Harry Potter first came out.  There I was, reading something by Steven Kellogg, and these kids are all raging about some wizard.  It took me a little longer to get on the platform of 9 3/4, but I was hooked. And the same thing happened with instagram.

Today, I ate a feast. AKA: cleanoutyourfridgeyoubigdummy.  I LOVE that we have been eating fresh veggies and fresh well, everything.  Unfortunately, with the hubs outta state being all manly and husky firefighter, the eats are slowly evaporating out of my fridge. And I imagine when we move, the landlady will appreciate a lack of moldy cauliflower hanging out in my crisper.

So here with my virgin voyage into the instagram, I give you the beginnings of my feast! (not all, because I got distracted with EATING it.)

Some shrooms I cooked in bacon fat and aged balsamic vinegar

organic red and green butter lettuce from our farmers market! drizzled with lemon and avocado oil

Some yummy strawberries I got from a friend. I ate a lot of them on the way home

So that's that, for today! I'm trying to decide if I feel like packing.  Although the mountain of boxes on my couch make it a little difficult to enjoy Gilmore Girls. Ahh Gilmore Girls.

So friggin' excited!!!

Alrighty. I haven't posted for a MONTH.  Yes. I'm lazy. And I do realize that pretty much every blog (all 6!) has contained some sort of rendition to how lazy I am.  My Achilles heel, peeps.  But, I'm so excited I just had to post something real quick before I land on my feet for eight hours of cooking, "babysitting young miscreants of culinary" and soaking myself in dishes at work.  

I'm moving! Caveman paramedic got a job in KY and he is down there, RIGHT NOW, getting all bulked up with some sweaty firemen and pioneering our journey down south.  

Confession: For memorial day, I had.... a slice of strawberry rhubarb pie. *GASP*. I really wasn't going to. But when it came out, it was not store bought, no pre-made crust, and it bubbled over with gooey, makeyouthinkofasunrise rhubarb juicy-ness and was INCREDIBLE.  Plus, the actual person who created this amazingness, was sitting just a couple of lawn chairs from me.  This is legit, people.  This was worth my tummy ache the next morning. I wish I had taken a picture.  I need to jump on the instagram bandwagon. Laziness ensues, but foodie passion shall prevail! Soon.  Soon.

It's been about a week since I have actually read any of what Nomnompaleo would call "food porn" and I have been feeling it.  When I am in the Paleo community, I feel pumped, energized, and inspired.  When my alter ego "lazygirl" rears her head, it takes a couple of days to "wake up" essentially and get back to what I'm passionate about.

You should see my facebook and Pinterest account.  I'm pretty sure I've lost a lot of "regulars" since nearly every post is about exercise, Paleo food, etc... But that's ok! I'm in an underground movement, I've lost 35 pounds THIS YEAR ALONE and am so excited to move forward!
