Left Overs? No Problem!

I took last night's roast & cut it up into pieces. I then combined 1 cup of crushed tomatoes, 2 cups of water, salt, pepper, and a quarter cup of maple syrup. I added 6 eggs to hard boil in the mixture. The eggs take on the meaty flavor.
This was a simple and delicious way to reinvent a left over dinner to make it unrecognizable in both flavor and style!

We Are Back! Post-Hurricane Sandy...

It took almost a month to return to blogging, but we are back and are ready with a series of posts! Roger has continued to work out in creative ways and his meals never fail. When we were hosting a series of guest during the aftermath of the hurricane, they were all so impressed with Roger's dinners! They could not believe that we ate like that every night!

Here are some pictures of a Goat Cheese Meatloaf. When Roger returns from another day of helping Hurricane Sandy victims (today he is cleaning out a garage, belonging to senior citizens, that was flooded)  he will post the steps to make this yourself!!

Pumpkin Bread: Cheese Pumpkin

Old Mother Hubbard
Went to her cupboard
To get some fresh pumpkin pie.
But her pie was not there,
So she gave her husband a glare
And said, "You ate it. Don't lie!"

This is a Cheese Pumpkin
cut in fourths
with the seeds removed

Peeled and sliced
Ready to be diced!

I coated the pumpkin flesh in
bacon grease and salt. However, any
fat would sufice.

I placed the pumpkin and the seeds
(coated in olive oil and salt)
in the oven at 450' F. I covered the pumpkin
for the first 20 minutes.

The seeds toast up in about 15-20 minutes

The pumpkin was finished in about 45 minutes
In one bowl I mixed 2 cups of almond flour,
1 tsp. of baking soda, and cinnamon.
In the other bowl I combined 2 cups of the cooked pumpkin,
1/4 cup of maple syrup,  2eggs,  1 tsp. of vanilla, and 1/4 of
coconut oil. I mixed it with an immersion blender.
Next I combined the wet and dry
ingredients and whisked by hand
to create a smooth mixture.

I coated this baking dish
(approx. 4 in. deep, 4 in. wide,  and 8 in. long)
with coconut oil and poured in the mixture.
I cooked the pumpkin bread at 350'F for about 45 minutes.
I tested it periodically with a knife, when it comes out dry
it is done.

Teacher Training! Homemade Mace

If you've ever tried clubbells you will love mace training! 

This one is very light, about 10 pounds, but it still requires tremendous grip strength to control and balance the weight. It provide excellent shoulder mobility and is quite fun. It can be made easily with a wooden handle, a bag of concrete mix, and a basketball. If you're really strong you can use a full size basketball.
