For those that like a relaxing hot cup of tea - I've recently discovered a blend from Tea & Absinthe (they do the Fantasy\Sci-Fi convention circuit) called Fireside Cocoa. It's a Rooibos blend (so soothing\caffeine free) that immediately transports me to sitting around a fire and making s'mores. It's AMAZING. I sweeten mine with stevia and squirt some whipped coconut cream on top :)

Non-Affiliate link if someone wants to give it a try (or browse their other teas - they've been my go to tea vendor of late). https://www.teaandabsinthe.com/tea/fireside-cocoa-tea

Thanks for sharing I might try to snag a cup as I'm getting back into the world of teas!

A very battered and battle-worn Mandalorian sits...no, closer to collapses into one of the chairs by the fire.  As she takes off her helmet, the bartender sends a server over with the beer from the Chaplain.  She looks at it for a second, then picks it up gratefully.

 

Ugh.  I don't even like beer, but that does actually sound *really* good right now.  It's been a year.  I'm still alive, but that's about all I can say for myself right now.  Which isn't nothing, but it's a lot less than I'd like.  So, I'm going to try to refocus on myself for the rest of the year so I can better take care of my family.

 

Here's to an awesome rest of the year. *salutes*

Terra wanders in and looks around for a comfy seat.  Finding an empty oversized chair near the fire she crawls in and orders a lovely pumpkin spiced tea to sip on and people watch.

Anyone have a favorite way to eat up meat patties without buns/bread? 

 

I'm working on staying away from all flours,  but have an abundance of turkey patties and was wondering if anyone had faves they enjoy them with? Or even just the sides you like to eat with them?

 

(I know one youtuber that just roasts veggies and eats the patties on top calling it garbage bowl style). Just looking for other ideas incase I nope out of that. 

 

Just attempting to have it so I can grab a dish or two and eat up without thinking... as if I have my happy plate setup things tend to get eaten.

Two ideas spring to mind.

 

1 - treat it exactly like a burger without the bun. Add burger sauce, bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and gherkins. You could even wrap it in lettuce leaves if you want to eat it with your hands.

 

2 - treat it like a steak. Add chips, a side salad, roast veg, or whatever you would have with a steak. Bonus points for peppercorn sauce.

Don't say "I don't have enough time", say instead "that's not a priority right now" and see how that makes you feel.

If you're avoiding gluten, but not carbs - chop it up, sauce it up and serve over rice or in a corn tortilla (think Chipotle burrito with a corn rather than flour tortilla  or burrito bowl). You can use any flavor profile, I'll steam some cabbage and use a soy sauce base for an Asian dish, Indian curry or of course Mexican, or make some Pho (I buy a vege based "instant" Pho bowl) and add whatever left over meat (or veggie) is handy - or fry some eggs - for a super quick lunch.
