I wish this recipe was exceptionally creative, but it’s not. Just has tasty ingredients that are easy to find and even easier to eat. I made this one morning, before I had to jump on a flight. I didn’t have much food, I didn’t have much time, but I wanted a big meal so I wouldn’t get hungry on the flight. Boom. A hash. I pretty much make a hash almost every day of some kind of compilation of food. That’s all that is on my instagram anymore. But has includes less thinking, and I dig that.

The other day didn’t include homemade hash, though. Nope. That’s probably why that food didn’t make it onto my instagram. It was girls day out. And I wasn’t trying to act like I don’t eat that naughty stuff. Oh no no. I like teasing people of instagram with all those foods that aren’t strict paleo. It’s just kind of funny. But when you’re consuming bloody mary’s (emphasis on plural) then wine then gin, well, I kind of forget about taking pictures of my food. So let me update you. I went out on a girls day celebration with my friend Stacy and Vanessa to shop and eat. So we stopped for a snack at Yard House which included Vanessa and I sharing a grilled artichoke and a salad. And when I say shared, I mean I ate 85% of the food and sucked 2 bloody’s down. Then we went back to the house where I had my absolute favorite dessert, Vanessa’s Chocolate Molten Lava Cake , then a couple spoonfuls of Cracked Nut Butter along with my glass of red wine. Then, since we (meaning me) hadn’t eaten enough, we headed to this restaurant called Sorrel where I had some crazy sweet gin drink while I ate some pork belly. Once I got home, feeling sick, I pretty much went straight to bed, feeling like dog balls. All through the night. And morning. Until I ate some veggies. It’s amazing what sugar can do to you when you’ve been cutting it out. Then cutting it back out sucks. Damn you sugar, you’re the devil.

I’m heading back to Colorado today. I’m so ridiculously excited. I probably won’t be quite as happy when it’s freezing cold there, but it’s home. And there is no place like home. I miss my workouts, I miss my gym, I miss my friends, I miss driving, I even miss my terrible, small kitchen. I just miss everything that Colorado has to offer.

I don’t get this whole Walking Dead thing. Probably because it gave me nightmares, but I don’t get why people like the misery and death and lots of blood. And it’s pretty slow moving. Not much happens other than people getting sick, people eating people, and people being really unhappy. No one smiles on this show. It’s such a downer. I mean, I AM basing this off of 2 episodes I’ve seen, so I pretty much know everything about the show. And I know I’ve seen a lot of knives through brains. I don’t think I’ll ever get into this show. I just can’t dedicate an hour to a show that’s all about death. Come on guys. Smiling is just way more fun.

OMG thank gosh Total Divas is back on for another season. No seriously. That’s like my favorite show ever. I’m not even embarrassed to say it. And there’s no blood. And lots of smiles.
