Paleo Bacon Bowls

So, I think we can all pretty much agree that bacon is awesome. So, when I saw these amazing bacon bowls (affiliate link), I knew that they had to be mine. Well, amazingly enough, my husband thought the same thing, and these bad boys ended up wrapped under our Christmas tree this year for ME! Yesssssssssssss.

So, this morning, Chef Husband did some culinary magic in the kitchen. Not only was this magic paleo, but it also looked awesome. So, the crowd appeal factor here is high, people.

Paleo Bacon Bowls

1. Start by putting your bacon bowls in the oven. We made 3 bacon bowls, and used 9 stripes of bacon (3 strips per bowl). The steps to crafting your bacon bowls are relatively easy, but even if you don't have a bacon bowl (affiliate link), you can also follow these instructions to make bacon bowls with an inverted muffin tin on Cave Girl Eats' blog here

2. While the bacon bowls are doing their thang, you can start crafting your bacon bowl filler. This is where you have the opportunity to be creative. I start getting really excited when I think of the low-carb (high-bacon) possibilities... But this is what Chef Husband did - 

3. Start with sautéing chopped onions and chopped jalapenos (if you want a little kick) in a tablespoon of coconut oil (affiliate link). The precise measurements here are up to you, but we like our veggies so we did about 1/3 a cup of each vegetable. 

4. To the pan of vegetables, add 4 eggs with just a splash of coconut milk. Scramble the eggs on low-medium heat as to not overcook the eggs. 

5. As the eggs are finishing up, add a 1/3 cup of chopped tomato and a handful of chopped baby spinach. Chef Husband added this at the end so they didn't get too cooked. 

6. When the bacon bowls finish cooking in the oven (be mindful when you are pulling the bacon out of the oven --- that pooled bacon grease is ruthless), fill each bowl with the scrambled egg mix, and there you have it - the scrumptious and easy Paleo Bacon Bowl. 

(Note: the vegetables/meat you add to this bacon bowl are really up to you. You can add mushrooms, broccoli, onion, garlic, carrot, sweet potato, ham, sausage... the possibilities are truly endless; one reason why the bacon bowls make me SO excited.)

How to be a Housewife (Without Feeling Like a Slave)

Now, don't get the wrong idea here... I'm not sending a passive aggressive message out there to men (do men even read blogs?) that women hate doing house duties. We love it - right, ladies??? (wink, wink) And I'm not complaining either. (Although I do despise laundry, I love a clean house; so it's a double-edged sword.) One thing I'm BIG on is positive thinking . Sometimes, it is hard to be positive if you are feeling overwhelmed with dishes, laundry, cleaning, cooking... oh yeah... LIVING IN and maintaining a home. So, I thought sharing my thoughts on this topic could maybe help some disgruntled wifeys out there. 1) Don't hate, delegate - I'm a huge fan of starting young with manageable tasks around the home. There are a bunch of lists floating around the interwebs of chore lists for kiddos, and a lot of them are pretty dang silly (one suggests letting a 2-3 year old put dishes away, um no!)  -- but my favorite one is from Kids Activities Blog.  2) B

Maybe It's Just Easier To Be Lonely

As a busy, working and social mom of two young hellions, I am constantly teetering on the balance of completely and utterly (and not fabulously, might I add) losing my sh-word. Man, what a starter. What an intro! Hello, welcome to my blog. My name is Tara, and I’m completely crazy. I use the term “hot mess” way more than socially acceptable; in fact, there are times that I use the phrase, in reference to myself, and I can literally HEAR someone’s thoughts of annoyance in me. But, I digress. But, it’s true! I’m about one bad day away from flipping out hardcore. Part of it is my innate nature to be involved in *everything.* Combine that with my inherent disability to saying “no,” and it’s a recipe for… you guessed it… “hot-mess-ness.” Totally a word I made up and use… a lot. As I look at my planner (that I am obsessed with - who else have to have their lives written down somewhere or else they have NO IDEA what they are supposed to do that day?!), I realize…. “Dang, I am

How Not to Raise an Asshole

Guys, you know how I am. I tell it like I see it. And these days, I see a LOT of two things: asshole adults and asshole kids who will grow up to be asshole adults. Not raising an asshole requires work , so if you aren't interested in some blood, sweat and tears, then close your browser, and don't forget to write a rude comment on your way out. Let me preface this by saying: these suggestions are being made from my professional side, not my parenting side--- let's be real, the verdict is still out on whether my kids will grow up to be assholes or not (just kidding... over my dead body will they be entitled, dependent adults)... but still, the important distinction of point-of-view needs to be mentioned. Here are some ways not to raise an asshole: 1) Teach them how to do stuff. You know how kids don't come with an instruction manual? Well, neither does growing up. Kids learn from example how to do almost everything - show them how to do things! Don't just
