• Kale Chopped Salad with Stone Ground Mustard Vinaigrette


    Today’s post is dedicated to my sister who eats so much kale her perfect complexion is in danger of turning dark, leafy green. I kid, sorta. I’ve never known anyone to eat so much of the stuff. A day without and she gets the shakes. I admire her commitment. Thanks sis for setting such a good example.  You know I’ll have to balance this out with a burger and fries so my body doesn’t go into shock.

  • Side Dish ~ Bacon Brussels Sprouts

    I’ll be up front right now; I have a lot of side dishes coming your way! Normally, my protein is the star and hogs all the glory but lately, I’ve been making my side dishes the star and the main protein has taken the back seat a bit. It’s nice to change things up a bit!

    I’ll give you a few hints…. You’ll see some beets and some cauliflower, maybe some cucumbers and even some broccoli stems in LSL posts in the near future. I know, you’re intrigued by the broccoli stems aren’t you? Why should the florets get all the attention?? The stems are wonderful!

    Well, I guess we should put those all aside for the time being and let the Brussels sprouts be star today!Bacon Brussels Sprouts ~ Living the Savory Life

  • Beef and Vegetable Stir-Fry

    Need a quick and easy mid-week meal?  Look no further.  This stir-fry is quick to come together and is packed with veggie goodness.  Not only that, it is highly adaptable to what you have on hand or what is in season.  No snow peas?  No worries.  Sub green beans.  Want mushrooms?  Add them.  Want little baby corn?  Throw them in!  It’s really that easy.  If you aren’t feeling like beef, go ahead, use chicken or shrimp instead.Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry ~ Living the Savory Life
