Irish Triple Threat Mini Shot Cakes

March 16, 2015

Last week I read an article on how much sleep you really need. I mean, I know that we all need a good nights rest; eight being that magic number, but this article gave me renewed inspiration. There were lots of great points in the article, and I vowed I was really going to try to get to bed early.

It always starts with good intentions. Night one, I was in bed by 10:30pm.

The Resolution Files #5: Parsley Chestnut Salad w/ Lemon Vinaigrette

Parsley Chestnut Salad with Lemon Vinaigrettejump to recipe

Are you ready for simple?! How about delicious and healthy? It doesn’t get any simpler than this salad, and it is indeed quite delicious! It also makes a great healthy meal, which is perfect for The Resolution Files!

I saw a version of this parsley salad on the Food Network, and was instantly inspired. I mean with a website name “The Devil Wears Parsley,” how could I not be? I love herbaceous salads like Tabbouleh, and who doesn’t love a good pesto every now and then? I know it seems kind of weird to make a salad whose green is mostly an herb, but it totally works. If you serve this for your family or friends, I know they’ll be on board too – it is so off-the-wall and unique, they’ll be intrigued.

The Wayne Static Benefit Show

Wayne Static Benefit Show

The Wayne Static Benefit Show took place Tuesday, January 20th, 2015, geez exactly one month and a day ago! Coincidentally this night was the night of the new moon, which is a perfect time to let things go. It’s always so, so hard when you lose somebody. He passed away on November 1st, 2014, and up until this benefit show occurred, I personally let the denial phase of grief take me over completely. So much so, that I was feeling nothing. I hadn’t cried, or even thought about his passing in a few months. Not in a way that I really recognized it. Wayne started out as just a rock-star for us, but towards the end, it blossomed into a pretty special friendship along with his wife, Tera Wray Static.

Classic Chicken Caesar Salad

My husband loves Caesar salads. He always orders them at restaurants, and has asked me to make them again and again. So, I finally did it, and it was SO EASY. Just make sure you get really fresh lettuce, some organic chicken, real block Parmesan cheese, fresh eggs, and you’re good to go! It’s so yums.
