Happy New Year!!!!

Happy 2011!!!! I am looking forward to another WONDERFUL year!

I set Resolutions - don't keep em!  

This year though... I am going to be able to keep mine. 

Here is what 2011 has in store for me! 
** I am going to write in a journal, every day/night!!! I am going to write of my blessings! 
 --- Thank you, Twelve Months of Bliss and All Kinds of Goodies, for giving me this idea... I am also going to be writing daily happening of the boys (quotes or sayings). 

** Nutrition and Fitness.
(Vegetables, some fruits, grass fed meat and nuts)

(No dairy, No Grains, No Legumes)
--- We will continue on our eating adventure. (which I will be documenting!)
 I will continue working out and getting back into shape! :)  (which I will also be documenting)  

**I plan on cooking a fish dish at least once a week. 

** I plan on cooking 2 - 3 new (Paleo) dishes a week.  

Why do we choose resolutions that are impossible to keep?? Why do we wait to start a resolution until January 1? Why can't we just start a resolution in March or in September or when the idea comes to us??? 
I think that my resolutions are practical and worth keeping! They are simple enough that after a few weeks, I will still want to keep them. They are challenging at the same time, that I will have to push myself (and remember) to do them! I am excited to start the year and really excited to see if I am able to make it the WHOLE year achieving my goals! 

HERE IS TO 2011!!!!

Almond Meal - just in case you didn't know what I mean.
 I leave my Almonds roughly chopped - personal preference!

Don't over crowd the meatballs. I think I saw that on Rachel Ray once. 

The Ingredients:

1 1/2 lb grass fed ground beef
1/2 yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 red onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced 
2 TBSP Parsley
Garlic Powder
Ground Pepper
Homemade Tomato Sauce
Homemade Tomato Paste
1 cup Almond Meal

The Directions:
In a large mixing bowl, add ground beef, onion, garlic and yellow bell pepper. Add seasonings and mix well!

In a large frying pan add a little Olive Oil. Ball of meat mixture into meatball size. 
Do not add too many meatballs into the pan. 

Brown all sides of the meatballs. 

In a large soup pan add tomato sauce and start to boil. Add brown meatballs to tomato sauce and cook for 10 minutes.
