Happy Sunday TKW Family! I hope this finds you well. We’re both chugging along. Mr. Fantabulous still isn’t back to his normal healthy self but this, whatever he has, is just going to take time. His doctors are on top of it so all we can do is pray and keep investigating what is making him so ill. But that man, I swear, he’s a machine. He doesn’t let it get him or his spirits down. I, on the other hand, have on the brave face. “Think positive, Lori Ann” is all I keep hearing in my mother’s voice. So that I shall.

Last week was pretty busy, but then isn’t life busy?  I guess for us, we tend to not lead a “normal” life. Like he has his own company, as do I, but then I also work a full time job on top of that. His “other” full time job is the complete renovation of this house. Plus our grounds aren’t your typical lawns. It’s like everything we have to do that is normal life for everyone else – cutting the grass, weeding, sweeping even is a project for us. It’s funny as our version of retirement is literally coming home from work, having dinner and the only thing we have to do that night is figure out what to watch on tv. On the weekends just a couple of hours in the morning to do the yard or housework and then we literally have the whole weekend to do anything we want or nothing at all. Like it’s literally been almost 9 years since we’ve sat on a couch in our media room and watched tv. God how I long for that day. Where most people’s version of retirement is no work, travel, freedom to do whatever.

What’s your vision of your retirement like?

Retirement…<deep sigh> someday.

Get out of that same ol’ recipe rut and try one of these delicious and easy recipes this week! This week I highly recommend making the Crock Pot Eye of Round with Mushroom & Onion Gravy and the White Bean and Corn Veggie Burgers!

Happy Sunday TKW Family!  How was your week?  Mine was pretty busy both at work and here at the house. Since we’re both starting to feel better it was time to tackle some of the house chores. I will say this, I will never EVER have 5 acres of property again to maintain. OMG it’s unreal!  Growing up we had 41 acres but there was also 8 of us. This place, I swear it has magic grass and weeds that as soon as you cut them they’ve already grown an inch!  I used to scoff at folks for having fake grass planted but I’m telling you what guys, those people are on to something ingenious!

But I know me, I cannot go without real grass in my yard. I’m a Pennsylvania girl. I need to feel see grass even though it’s hell on my allergies and I don’t like the feeling of it touching my bare feet. But then again I’m that weirdo that hates being barefoot. Like I need socks or shoes on. Yet growing up my sister would never wear shoes. We had about a 900′ driveway that was made out of red dog rocks. Those things were sharp and hurt like the dickens. Dianna would walk barefoot on the driveway to get the mail. One time Dad busted her cutting the grass barefoot!  Stupid, I know!  When he asked why in the hell she was doing that she simply replied “I like the feeling of the cut grass on my toes.” Dad just “If you don’t put shoes on right now you won’t have any toes to feel that grass!”

Unfortunately Mr. Fantabulous overdid it yesterday as his chest started hurting again and it was hard for him to catch his breath again. I’m worried about him. All of his tests have come back negative thus far (which is good) but the tests for that Valley Fever still aren’t back yet. He goes to see the Infectious Disease doctor this week so I’m praying they know exactly what caused his sickness and if he’s on the right treatment path. Today I told him he’s to lie in bed and take it easy. Of course, being stubborn he’s fighting me as there is so much work to get done but his health needs to come first.

How are you spending your Sunday?

Chunky Portabella Parmesan Veggie Burgers

So I’ve been on this major, MAJOR veggie burger kick.  My Chunky Portabella Veggie burgers have been a viral success!  It was only befitting that I give you another veggie burger that both vegetarians and carnivores would love!  Let me introduce you to these lovely Chunky Portabella Parmesan Veggie Burgers!  See marrying Mr. Fantabulous there was certain criteria I had to meet in the kitchen – know how to make Italian Gravy, Canolis, Struffoli and Chicken Parmesan.  However there are days when I’m just not feeling meat.  I love it but it doesn’t love me back at times so I had to find alternatives that when I made say Chicken Parmesan I didn’t have to stray and make a completely separate meal for me.  This is one of those dishes.

ChunkyPortabellaParmesanVeggieBurgers

See Mr. Fantabulous was craving chicken parmesan and I well, wasn’t. Don’t get me wrong it’s friggen awesome but I was kind of ‘chickend-out’ if you will.  But I didn’t want to make something totally different for me.  I was going to just make myself a veggie burger but then this hit me.  Why not make an Italian version of my veggie burger and adapt it to be like chicken parm?

Vegetarians and carnivores are going to LOVE this!
