I decided today was a good day to clean out my fridge of some leftover produce and goodies that have been accumulating since my last grocery shop. I decided to put together something that I think would be a delicious side dish: Sautéed Radishes, Marinated Artichoke Hearts and Spinach. Here’s what I used:
1 bunch of radishes, halved
½ jar of marinated artichoke hearts
4 diced shallots
Juice of ½ a lemon
Salt and pepper, to taste
All I did was sauté the radishes, artichoke hearts and shallots until they started to get soft.
I added the spinach and the lemon juice and cooked it until it was wilted, around 2 minutes.
Super fast and very delicious!
So, what do a lot of people crave when they are hungry? Comfort food. That’s me a lot of the time and I found a super easy, yummy and delicious recipe that uses my Instant Pot to cook it. Folks, I present you with Instant Pot Cowboy Casserole. And here is how you make it:
I’ve been gone for a while but I am making it a priority to blog more. Whether it’s about food, geek stuff or just whatever my little heart desires. But, I’ll give a life update before I start my actual blog post. I finally found a job. It’s at a call centre doing technical support. I started in February and I love it so far. I’ve even been chosen to mentor and provide floor support to new classes when they first come out on the call floor.
I also haven’t been feeling the greatest for about a month or so. After I started my job, I got a terrible cold that needed antibiotics to help kill it. A few days after I started taking my antibiotics, my body started to ache. I felt like I was vibrating and I was exhausted. My foot cramps got worse and I have a horrible time sleeping.
Last week, I went back to the doctor. They did a bunch of blood work and it turns out my electrolytes are completely out of whack. That explains my symptoms and why I’ve been feeling horrible. So, I’m starting to eat better while eating smaller servings throughout the day. I’m starting to drink more water, even though I don’t like to. I’m trying to regulate my sleep, (which doesn’t help when I’m working evenings for the next 3 months) as best as I can. I’m on my way to feeling better!
So, there’s a little update from me. What I’m really blogging about is what I made today: Butternut Squash and Spinach Stuffin Muffins.
Since starting my blog, I’ve debating whether or not to post on everything that I’ve made that I’ve been proud of. Well, that would be a lot of posts so I’ve decided to put together a post using pictures instead.
