Charlotte's Web

Morning folks!

Excuse me for being MIA the past few days, I felt the need to relax all day Sunday and was quite busy yesterday at work organizing my office & wasn't able to post.

We have a new pet spider!

We found her on Saturday night, isn't her web interesting? I couldn't get a great shot of it in the dark but I'll keep my eye on it. Sunday I made a green monster for breakfast to cure my little hangover :)

It worked like a charm! I cooked up another batch of my homemade sausage.

It's much tastier than last time--I used more spices and added some red pepper flakes to the recipe.

I made a roast beef in the crockpot again on Sunday and ate that for dinner by itself.

Monday was a copycat pretty much of Sunday--green monster & sausage for breakfast, beef for lunch. I wasn't all that hungry in the evening so I had some egg salad.

Pretty boring food the past few days!! Hopefully today's lunch will liven things up around here--that and my new tea!

THIS IS MARVELOUS!!! It's so good, I want to run to the store right now & buy all the other flavors! The taste and fragrance are deeper than the Lipton green tea with pomegranate. It contains Matcha which is the jade colored fine powdered green tea used for centuries in the Japanese tea ceremony. It is made from a special shade-grown Japanese green tea, which is hand-picked and the tea leaves are ground into a fine powder. Matcha is antioxidant rich, as the entire tea leaf is consumed. So there you have it! If you have this store in your grocery store, I highly recommend you try it out!

I must get to work, but I hope you have a great day!

Curious minds want to know....do you share your sausage recipe???

It's taken from my friend Emily's recipe--



1/2 diced onion
2 pounds ground pork
1 tsp sage
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp brown sugar or real maple syrup
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp thyme
**I added 1/4-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes and 1 tsp Trader Joe's Seasoning Salute (it's kinda like Vegit)

Caramelize onions while you mix all the spices in with the meat. Add the onions, mix everything together. I let mine sit overnight for all the flavors to marry together. Drop slightly flattened spoonfuls of meat onto a baking sheet & bake at 400° for about 20 minutes.
