I’ve been trying to get back to my low carb / keto (ish) style of eating just so I can keep added sugars out of my diet. I haven’t been so good lately. PCOS isn’t going to fix itself and since there is no cure, I owe it to myself to find things I can eat which will help me manage it. A low carb lifestyle really helps with that, so I am on a mission to get back to that. I have been wanting to make these bacon wrapped mini meatloaf for quite some time. Now that the weather is cooler in the mornings, it’s the perfect time to turn on the oven. [Read more…]
Most of the time I don’t mind it. That means I get to eat the things I couldn’t eat when cooking for the family. Hubs and kiddo love breakfast grits which are just simple grits with salt and butter. We’ll pair it with some homemade sausage. Super yummy and filling. [Read more…]

A few months ago husband and I went to this small plates restaurant (tapas) in Flint, MI called 501 Bar and Grill. There is another place down the road that we’ve visited over the years, (Blackstones) and had been hearing about the 501 from plenty of friends. We finally decided we should give it a go. After our wine tasting event a few weeks back, we decided to grab some dinner before picking up kiddo. When we get time out and about we like to go to places we don’t normally get a chance to. I first mentioned Blackstones because it’s a little Irish pub and we don’t get to town often. We pull up, only to find out it’s apparently closed on Sunday’s. I found that a little weird. We ended up crossing the street to the 501. [Read more…]
