Mixing Home Cooking with a Taste of Santa Fe... And Texas meets Noah.... Living in the Pain Zone.

Here's a quick raw veggie and protein dish.

Yellow Squash, Green Bell Pepper, Fresh Basil, Kalamata olives

And a big pattie of my ground turkey breast mix with a dollop of Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and a squirt of Honey Mustard.

One of the many "boutique" cinemas in Santa Fe with some of the non-main stream offerings.....

This "Slow West" looks  interesting being that I'm a sucker for Westerns.

Cast Iron Skillet Dish steaming hot with everything good for you in it.

I downloaded an app called "Santa Fe Hot List" which gives me all the latest goings on in SF!

Breakfast for Supper?   You betcha.....

Spring Mix with tomatoes, carrots, radishes dressed with Balsamic and EVOO and sprinkled with golden raisins....

With a side of diced sauted banana, 2 eggs over medium, 2 slices of TJ's Uncured Black Pepper Turkey Bacon and a link of Sweet Basil Chicken Sausage.

Think I'll be hitting Sprouts more often..... I checked out their Produce department and it looks better than Trader Joe's and they had some great prices.

Tried a new place right down the street from where I live called Chopstix....

Got a 2 entree platter with a side of rice for $6.99.

Let me show you how it's done at Outback Willie's!

Dice a half a green bell pepper, half a sweet onion and a half a Fuji apple and saute for 3 minutes in a hot cast iron skillet with no oil

Throw in the last piece of TJ's Turkey bacon, diced and the last link of Sweet Basil Chicken Sausage followed by the last of the basil, a double handful of kale and a diced baked sweet potato.

Give it another 3 minutes continuously turning...

Make a base of Spring Mix, tomatoes, carrots, radishes, avocado, dressed with Balsamic and EVOO and sprinkled liberally with S&P and Garam Masala

Mix and beat 2 eggs, and a few glug glugs of Balsamic, Kikkoman and Tabasco.

Turn the heat on the skillet down to low and pour over and mix in the wet mix until the eggs are done....

And serve a pile of that mix with the salad mix topped with a few mixed nuts, dried fruit and fresh blueberries.

That's how it's done!

God Bless those people in Texas.... My Hometown ain't looking too good on the weather front.

From the Santa Fe Baking Company..... Carde Adovado with a side of 2 pancakes.... Yeah.... I know it's not Paleo but I was hurting real bad this morning and one thing that always takes the edge off the pain is....

Good Food.....

And this was great food!

And at a great price....

All this for $10.75!!

Still believe the 80s was the best decade of music!

Been on a Crazy Train for a while that's taking a long stop in Painsville.

The Achilles Tendon is doing OK, but the left knee is trashed.....

Stabbing pain on the inside of the left knee.

Got an appointment for next Tuesday for an Orthopedic doctor down here.

We'll see what he says.

Meanwhile back at the Ranch.....

I keep doing what I'm doing....

Which is whatever I can do.

Life is Uncertain and Short.

I'd rather be in Pain and Moving than the Alternative.....

Which is in Pain and Not Moving.

One thing that Pain makes you appreciate.....

Is the times when you're not in Pain.
