Chili for a Crowd

How do you Feed a Crowd??

I can’t believe our first ever business retreat was this past weekend (and a huge success!!!)

This was totally on our dream board for about a year –

a) to own a house that could host such an event and

b) actually have people come, haha!

Our main goal was to build stronger connections with each other and encourage each other to develop their skills to build their dream job.

With our first retreat under our belts, I’m already looking forward to the next one!!ย When planningย an overnight retreat, of course my first question is… what are we going to eat?? Haha! ย It’s starting to get chilly here in North West Arkansas, so my first thoughts went to a great chili! read more

Low Carb Philly Cheesesteak Casserole

ย 

I have really been craving the flavors of a Cheesesteak lately. I got the idea of doing a spin off of a Philly Cheesesteak after seeing Peace Love and Low Carb’s Stuffed Philly Cheesesteak Peppers. For my family, the idea of a casserole just works better for some meals. I decided to try my hand at making a Low Carb Philly Cheesesteak Casserole.

We don’t normally shop at Walmart… but we found ourselves there on a Friday night after going to Hobby Lobby (they are right ย next to each other). I was wanting to make something quick for dinner that I could throw together without much fuss. read more

Grassfed Beef Burgers with a Mexican twist

It’s almost summer time and burgers are perfect on a bed of greens for a lazy meal.

Last night, I had to fend for myself for dinner. Adam had band practice prepping for the – HUGE EASTER SERVICE YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS – which meant that I was going solo for dinner.

While I don’t mind cooking for the most part, I don’t like to fuss too much if I’m just cooking for myself… Also, I was really hungry and needed something in my belly fast!

I ended up making burgers with some grassfed beef I had in the fridge from the farmer’s market. I seasoned it with salt, garlic powder, pepper, and Italian seasonings. I added one egg and about a 1/4 cup of buckwheat to stretch it a little (not sure if it actually did or not). Then gets the messy/fun part – I stuck my hands in the meat and mixed everything in. I made several patties – I think I made 6 or so with one pound.

I put a little coconut oil in my skillet and put the patties in the hot oil to cook. I flipped them after a few minutes (maybe 5 or so) when the bottom got nice and browned.

While they cooked I made my salad. I started out with my bed of greens. Then, I mashed up some avocado for some quick “guacamole.” I had a few cherry tomatoes that I threw in there and added a few spoonfuls of salsa for a “dressing.” I sprinkled just about 1 tablespoon of cheese on top and called it “Done.” This was also a great way to get in more avocado that I mentioned earlier this week.

It was a great “throw together something quick before I order a pizza or eat the refrigerator door” kind of meal.

Hope you enjoy it! Happy Eating – What did you eat last night?
