This weekend I was not as ambitious as last weekend! Friday evening we went to our community meeting/gathering. We have no HOA in our community so the gatherings are more for neighbors to get together and chat while enjoying some snacks and drinks. For a snack, I made some cream cheese and peperoncini stuffed salami wedges. They are quick and easy and people seem to love them!

As soon as I was fully awake, I made "The Original Hamburger Helper" from Healthy Living How To. For once, I followed the recipe! The dish looked exactly like the picture on the blog (sorry, I forgot to take a picture!) and it was super tasty! My husband happily ate it and wanted more! Later that evening we had leftovers.

Sunday morning I made scrambled eggs and bacon. We still had some bacon left over from the last time I went to The Organic Butcher. For lunch, we snacked on some leftovers. For dinner, I made Stir-Fried Green Beans with Shrimp and Garlic from Food & Wine's site. Of course, I changed a few things in the recipe. Instead of vegetable oil, I used lard. I added some black pepper and red pepper flakes while the shrimp and green beans were sizzling. Also, I steamed the green beans a little before adding them to the skillet. A very tasty, quick dish! I think from start to finish it took about 16 minutes!
Last night I ordered some meat from U.S. Wellness Meats, an online store specializing in grass-fed meats. I've heard wonderful things about their meats and I love their mission:
