Friday Shout Outs #10

TGIF! Shout Outs
Friday, August 21st, 2015

What’s shakin’ bacon? Sassy here with another edition of Friday Shout Outs…or should I say Fri-YAY! Here’s to another Friday, hope your weekend is wonderful just like you!

I just got back from vacation with my family on Bald Head Island (the most wonderful place in the world) and at the same time we are moving into our new house all the while getting a new phone. So, needless to say I am a bit ALL over the place right now just trying to make sure I know where I am sleeping and eating each day. Don’t get me wrong this is all very exciting but between trying to find people’s numbers and wondering where my pots and pans are it can be quite confusing and disorienting. We will be all moved in soon and I cannot wait to plant my roots in this town 🙂

Vacation you ask? It was wonderful. I soaked up all the sun I could while stealing hugs and laughs with my 4 year old nephew, 2 year old niece and
brand new 1 month old nephew…oh yea and my hubby, mom, dad, brother (older) and sister-in-law….and a surprise visit from my brother-in-law oh and our 15 year old Wheaten Terrier Amber. Family time is the best time and living so far away from everyone makes me cherish every second we had. We played in the sand, boogie boarded, climbed a lighthouse, shared some homemade ice cream and chilled by a bonfire on the beach. It’s important to take breaks in life, take some deep breaths and unwind. It’s so easy to power through but this was a much needed vacation and I’m ready to go back already. Alright, besides my family, here are a few of my favorite things for this week’s Friday Shout Outs!

Cumin Garlic Sauerkraut

cumin garlic kraut 1As you know from the Apricot Coleslaw post I have cabbage coming out of my ears over here in Pearltopia. What better to do with it than make sauerkraut?! Sauerkraut actually means sour cabbage. It gets the sour taste from the lactic acid produced when bacteria ferments sugars in cabbage. Yep that’s right, eating sauerkraut means you are eating the bacteria too, yummy.

The bacteria in our guts have a huge impact on our health. They protect the intestinal lining, assist the immune system, break down food, produce nutrients, and can even modulate inflammation in the body. Research has demonstrated that a imbalance in gut bacteria may also play a role in diseases of the gastrointestinal tract including Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis, cancer, formation of gallstones, obesity, allergies, type 1 diabetes, obesity, and possibly even autism [1].

Mashed Curry White Sweet Potatoes

white sweetI am always preaching to people to not go grocery shopping when they are hungry or in a hurry and yesterday I failed to take my own advice. I was in a super hurry and instead of getting white potatoes I grabbed Jersey white sweet potatoes. I didn’t even notice it until I got home and saw the receipt that said “potato sweet white.” Uh, what? I had to Google what it is. For a full guide to the difference between sweet potatoes, yams, and the varieties of each check out this article from Marks Daily Apple. Continue reading “Mashed Curry White Sweet Potatoes”

Friday Shout Outs #9

FSO9It’s Fri-yay!!!!!

Welcome back to another installment of Friday Shout Outs where we clue you in on all things Sassy and Pearl from the books we read to the blogs we follow, foods we eat, and instagram accounts we stalk, I mean, enjoy. Happy Friday, friends!

What I’m Reading

Brain Maker by Dr. David Perlmutter is my JAM right now. Dr. Perlmutter is a neurologist that focuses on how diet effects the brain. I first heard about him when he wrote Grain Brain (I mean, how great is that title?) and I’ve been following his work ever since. His latest book, Brain Maker, is all about the interplay between the gut microbiome and the brain and how rectifying a dysbiosis in the gut can treat and even cure brain diseases and mental illnesses. Y’all know how much I love the gut microbiome and getting nerdy and this book totally satisfies that need. My only complaint is, don’t you think his name should be spelled Pearlmutter?! #pearltopia Continue reading “Friday Shout Outs #9”

Pulled Beef Tongue Stuffed Zucchini

tongue stuffed zucchini2

Beef tongue, round two! Remember a few months ago when Sassy made Beef Tongue Tacos for her friends? She could not stop raving about how good the beef tongue was so of course I had to try it. Lucky for me I have a group of brave friends that trust in my cooking abilities (I’m not sure why) that were willing to dive into the world of offal.

No, I didn’t say awful I said offal. Offal is a word that refers to the internal organs of slaughtered animals. Stop freaking out. The US is basically the only country that runs in the other direction of these nutritional powerhouses. Everywhere else in the world likes to get down with their own version of organ meats, think- foi gras, pâté, sweetbreads, tripe, haggis, chopped liver, menudo, and intestine casing for sausage. And those are just the most common. Other parts of the world eat or utilize just about every part of the animal from nose to snout and we want you to get on board.
