Life Lessons from a Little ASS


One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

MORAL :
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.

2. Free your mind from worries - Most never happens.

3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.

4. Give more.

5. Expect less from people but more from yourself.

You have two choices... smile and close this page, or pass this along to someone else to share the lesson.

13 Weeks to the 2015 Food and Wine Conference!

#FWCon
Today marks 13 weeks until the 2015 food and wine conference and my post to celebrate it was inspired by the Chicken Fajita Bowls on the Family Foodie Blog. As usual I took a lot of shortcuts with this dish because I'm a lazy cook. I used yellow rice and just threw in some shredded cooked chicken that was cooked in taco seasonings and added to it peppers, salsa, cheese and sour cream. It was a great quick meal that was ready in thirty minutes. Perfect for my busy week! Check out the original recipe HERE!

#‎Foodies‬ will LOVE the 2015 Food & Wine Conference! Use code FWC15grana for $50 off admission at foodandwineconference.com.

Intelligent Gourmet- A Great Choice for Healthy Dining!


This post is loooooooooooooong overdue. Sorry Bobbie Kingsbury :( I owe you a drink for the delay. So, back to the post- back in March I had the amazing pleasure of attending a sample tasting at Intelligent Gourmet to celebrate the super fabulous Bobbie Kingsbury new position as Marketing Director at the place. Congrats again by the way on that! ;)

During the tasting we tried at least three pizzas and I have to say- for these to be as healthy as they were they were daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang delicious! Who knew healthy food could taste that yummy?

The three pies I tried were the Veggie Delight, the Chicken Sausage Pizza and the Hawaiian Supreme. I would highly recommend these if you are looking for an amazing lunch or dinner. So frikkin good!!!



I also got to sample the bison meatloaf above and the oatmeal pancakes below. Seriously, these dishes were so tasty it didn't even seem like I was eating foods that are good for you. If all healthy food was this enjoyable then eating well wouldn't feel so hard. I wish I lived closer to the shop!



Check this out from the Intelligent Gourmet website:
When people see the term “health food,” their minds typically envision flavorless rice cakes, obscure vegetables and tofu burgers that taste like pulped paper. Those dishes will never be found in our kitchen.

At Intelligent Gourmet, we believe in hearty meals loaded with flavor -- lasagna, beef, chicken, fish and yes, even pork -- accompanied by rich vegetables and side dishes that make you happy to be alive. What you won’t taste is that our food will also help keep you alive and healthy longer.

Our mantra is to BE better. We want our customers to eat better, feel better, look better and just all around live better. Our kitchen was founded on those principles, so if you want to enjoy eating -- really ENJOY it -- we invite you to sample our creations. Our food not only feeds your body, but your spirit, as well.


To learn even more and/or to order some of their yummy concoctions visit their website or call them at (813) 287-2253
