Let’s Do this!

Thanks to my friend, Sadie I am jumping right in with both feet to the blogging game.  I really just want to share my victories as well as my failures sot that other moms can realize they are not alone out there.  Some weeks I will have more failures than victories…while some weeks it will be all failures!  I promise to share the good with the bad.  I would love to share recipes, tips and “life hacks” as well as book recommendations and anything else that comes to mind.

Here is a salad I came up with yesterday to bring to our church home group.  It was my turn to bring dinner and I really wanted to try to recreate the brussel sprout salad I had recently when my husband and I took our son to Fogo de Chao to celebrate his 15th birthday.



Brussel Sprout salad

1 bag Brussel Sprouts, shaved

1 red onion, diced

1 bunch of cauliflower, chopped

1 bunch of broccoli, chopped

2 red peppers, diced

1 green pepper, diced

1 yellow pepper, diced

Chiffonade 1/2 bag fresh spinah


4 avocados, diced

2 mangoes, diced

6 hard boiled eggs, sliced

1 package pepper bacon, cooked and cut into bits

1 package cherry tomatoes on the vine

Sunflower seeds


Buy already shaved Brussel Sprouts (I have heard Trader Joe’s has them) or I bought a bag of Brussel Sprouts from Sam’s and cut them myself (I did not trust myself with a mandolin and something so small! and I don’t have a food processor).  Add all of the ingredients except the optional ones to a large serving bowl and mix well.  The optional items should be added to the salad right before serving so they don’t spoil the salad.  If there is any leftover then those ingredients would make the salad spoil faster.
