I’ve been eyeing this head of kale for a few days now…to the Nutribullet you must go!

Can’t believe I’m just now getting around to my Christmas haul…giving the Nutribullet a try! I wanted something sweet and figured fruit was the healthier option…baby steps to eating clean.

These had to be the largest plate of chili cheese fries ever! And FREE at that! We used our free appetizer coupon at Longhorn Steakhouse and were stunned when our nice server lady brought them to our table. They were two pounds easy and could have fed a family of four lol…Longhorn’s Western Cheese Fries~ Crispy fries loaded with all-beef chili, melted cheddar & Monterrey jack, bacon and jalapeños! 

I’m all about a Chef’s Special and hit the jackpot selecting Longhorn’s BOURBON BLACK PEPPER SIRLOIN~a juicy 6 oz. sirloin wrapped in applewood bacon and served in a bold bourbon black pepper glaze. Fearless flavor in every bite. I paired it with a sweet potato with cinnamon sugar and butter! My steak was soOo flavorful and tender {I ordered it well-done but the center was slightly pink, which I’ve become to enjoy over the years}! I highly suggest trying this while it’s still on the menu!

Stop licking the screen! @BransonChavis ordered the Bourbon Black Pepper Sirloin as well but an 8 oz., wrapped in applewood bacon and served in a bold bourbon black pepper glaze. Served with a loaded baked potato!

Tonight I tried a new recipe using our very own farm raised chicken breasts….Sweet Tea brined fried chicken {yes you read that right, two things Southerners couldn’t decide between if they were stranded on an island}, homemade mashed potatoes with turkey gravy and macaroni & cheese! Take that KFC! The secret to this dish was brining the meat in fresh brewed Lipton tea then soak in duck egg/buttermilk mixture before coating with Cajun flour/grated cornmeal…then fry those bad boys

@Jchavis84 wanted Corned Beef & rice for dinner so I whipped up his request along with some collards & fresh Merita bread…every time I cook this meal I feel a little more country πŸ‘’πŸ˜‹

Tonight’s food prep was simply stunning! I never knew how satisfying and rewarding growing our own food would be until we raised our own chicken! Knowing what is, or particularly what isn’t, in food is the first step to eating healthy and our Chavis Farm pastured boneless skinless breasts are above par! I pan-seared them with evoo, basil, oregano & cracked pepper then tossed in fresh dug Irish potatoes seasoned with paprika & garlic along with some frozen California red grapes into my cast iron skillet and the rest is history….πŸ‡ 

I went hard in the kitchen tonight whipping up what will probably become my new favorite go-to chicken dish! The fruity flavor combinations were mouthwatering and aromatically succulent…for a second I thought I was in Rome!

Pan-seared {Chavis farm raised} chicken breast with strawberry balsamic glaze, seasoned Irish potatoes and roasted California red grapes! 

The secret ingredient for this recipe is Strawberry Jam…homemade, store bought, whatever floats your boat! Mix 3 tbsp with one tbsp of your favorite BBQ sauce and a few dashes of aged balsamic vinegar. Stir until smooth and brush over chicken breasts during the last 10 minutes of baking. I had some leftover so I used it as dipping sauce for my carved meat and potatoes, it was THAT GOOD! πŸ˜‹πŸ‡ Tonight’s food prep was simply stunning!

The freezing rain kept us cooped inside all day so what better aroma to be engulfed by than Smithfield Ham baking in the oven and all the fixins! Baked Spiral Ham, stewed Irish Potatoes {considering it’s St. Patty’s Day and all}, pan-fried okra and cornbread stuffing! I might have my holidays mixed up, this felt like Thanksgiving but aren’t ALL Southern meals πŸ΄πŸ˜‹πŸ‘’ #CountryCooking
