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 fromKids Activities Blog.

Airport Travel: Diaper Bag Do's and Don't's

So, many of you know that in just two short days I will be traveling solo to Santa Fe, NM, from our home in Chicago. And with me, I am bringing my little bambina Beulah, all of her stuff, and a lot of prayers. Packing for this trip is like packing Madonna up for the zombie apocalypse. Beulah has A LOT OF STUFF.

We have done two big trips with her over the last almost 7 months. The first was a plane ride to Texas in October, when she was about 4 months old. I was with my husband. She promptly had blow-out diapers as soon as the plane took off both there and back. But, overall, it wasn't bad. We were headed to Texas (the best place EVER); we could have arrived covered head to toe in Beulah spit-up/poop/pee/whatever, and I wouldn't have cared!!!!! But I still packed a bunch of crap that I really didn't need for the plane ride. The second trip was a cross-country 15-ish hour drive from Chicago to Pennsylvania to see her big brother. Frequent stops for coffee and bottle water …

Tips on Survival with a Sick Baby

Any parent can tell you that life can be turned upside by a sick child. Sleepless nights, lots of crying (you and the baby!), routines are thrown out the window... it's just for the birds. And to make it even worse, you as a parent are playing a guessing game of what is ailing your child specifically in some instances.

So, I don't know about y'all, but this winter season has been a real fun one for Boo. We have had 4 ear infections, a stomach bug, and RSV. I don't even know how to quantify the runny noses, because it has been constant. I know that I am lucky that she is otherwise healthy, so I will go knock on a million pieces of wood now.

I have learned from experience (at least 5 trips to the emergency room and 2 hospital stays unfortunately) that earaches/throw up/fever hits in the middle of the night 9 out of 10 times, and at least the first time, you are GROSSLY unprepared. I hope this blog post can change the second part for some new parents out there.
