Breakfast of Cavemen

Yes, a Paleo post. Now, I will not harangue you on Paleo living (you can learn more here if so inclined: Why Paleo?), but I will be sharing my breakfast that was fabulously delicious. I admit I am not a devout Paleolithic eater and primarily only (strictly) follow it in lieu of fasting every several months. Quite honestly though, I really should ~ I feel exponentially healthier when I do. What is it about eats laden with sugar that is nearly impossible to resist? Oh yeah, they’re yummy. :: sigh::  In all seriousness, I’m a “perimeter” shopper at the grocer and 93%  dedicated to smart dietary choices. Enough about me, let’s talk breakfast: (adapted from Paleo Plan ~ and home to the best Paleo recipes I’ve come across yet.) Of course you may incorporate various ingredients to fulfill the desires of your little heart.

Ingredients

  • 3 strips nitrite-free bacon
  • Bacon fat for brushing tins
  • 3 eggs
  • Pepper
  • Chopped onions (sautéed in the bacon fat)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until it begins to shrivel. (about 3 minutes)
  3. Chop onions and sauté in pan with bacon. Remove from heat.
  4. Brush 3 cups in a muffin tin with the bacon fat.
  5. Circle the inside of each cup with a strip of bacon.
  6. Break an egg into each muffin cup and season with pepper.
  7. Add onions.
  8. Fill empty cups with water to protect from burning.
  9. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
  10. To serve, loosen the edges of the eggs with spatula and transfer to plate.

So Much

So much is going on in and around me, it’s difficult to choose a specific place in which to begin. Quite honestly, I only want to write about one thing: Romeo & Co. (our family). But then again, I really don’t. It’s just one of those days weeks months years where inspiration saturates me, yet I cannot put it to paper. It borderlines sacrilegious! I want to document this.

2011 has been a chaotic dichotomy of Heaven and Hell ~ and it’s only the first week of June. ::sigh:: And while pain (and nearly every other negative emotion) has played a significant role during this time, it’s JOY that triumphs. JOY!!

How can this be? Easy. Love based in Friendship.

I cannot emphasize how incredibly AWESOME it is to be in love with your best friend. It’s weird to me. Perhaps more appropriate: it’s foreign to me. (At least in the form of reciprocity. ) Friendship. True Friendship. The friendship that is self sacrificial, supportive and kind.

What reigns in our relationship? Respect. Trust. Truth. Transparency.

In the face of adversity and in the heart of disappointment, Romeo and I bond more closely together. When the easier option is to walk away, we outstretch our hands and clasp tight.

Partnership. Friendship. Love. So Much Love.

Romeo and I have been together 15 months now…</p
