A year ago if you told me I would be curing my own bacon and fermenting my own kombucha, I would have laughed so hard. First I didn’t even eat bacon at that time. Second I had just learned of my new love kombucha and had no clue I could make it myself. So much can change in a year. My paleo journey has come along way from eating so many eggs I never wanted to eat an egg again. Breakfast is my favorite meal. I’m super excited about this recipe because I absolutely devouring it! The combination of flavors is the best of all savory breakfast foods combined!
Any movie lovers in the house? Oscar-nominations were announced last week, and I am super disappointed Tom Hanks wasn’t nominated for Best Actor in Captain Phillips. I didn’t even think I would like this movie, and I ended up loving it! I probably annoyed people with how much I raved and insisted they go see it. Last night I watched Short Term 12 with Brie Larson. It was considered the sleeper hit out of SXSW last spring. It was really good but depressing. I have so many movies in theaters on my to-see list that it seems never ending! American Hustle, Saving Mr. Banks, August: Osage County, Her and Philomena.
