Italian Wedding Soup

I got this recipe from a fellow volleyball Mom! Delicious, quick and warm on a cold night. Technically, you don’t need to add anything at all to the meatballs, just roll small balls of meat. I like to add a few little things and you can add whatever you like to your meatballs, get creative, make sure you write it down, because if you like it, you will want to do it again! ENJOY :)!

Presentation for St Augustine Cruiser’s Net “Cooking on a boat”

Had a blast last night with the St Augustine Cruiser’s Net group, talking about cooking on a boat! I don’t think anyone took pictures, so we are picture-less. I made the Italian Bread (see the recipe below) and added Garlic and Rosemary and I also did a loaf of Cheddar/Jalapeno. Both came out very well and people seemed to enjoy them! Yay! I also shared our Dutch Pig’s in a Blanket recipe, which is a great snack when you are heading offshore. They taste great cold and you can easily add some spices to the meat mix to kick up the flavor, or dip it in some mustard. Any way you look at it, they are a tasty treat!

Tonight we are making a spicy chicken breast with an avocado salsa dressing.  It’s a little spicy, and if you don’t like the heat, add a little less cayenne pepper, or a little more, if you like it super hot!

Eating Healthier – Oatmeal, 4 Bean Salad and Eggplant Lasagna

About 2 weeks ago, we decided to make a change in our diet.  Eat meat only a few meals per week, instead of almost every meal.  We have been buying and cooking our own beans, it is so easy and very healthy because they are fresher and no salt is added.  We have been eating sauteed vegetables, raw vegetables, beans and more beans and a lot of fruit that we never ate enough of.

Even Syd is enjoying all the new flavors.  We are eating  healthier and enjoying it.  As I discover new yummy recipe’s, I will share them with you.
