Crispy Mashed Potato Waffles

This might just be our new favorite dinner.

Crispy mashed potato waffles topped with ground beef, bacon, onions, & kale…and of course, an egg.

I put in grass fed butter, chicken broth, Flavorgod garlic lovers, & parsley into my mashed potatoes.

Chipotle Barbacoa Tacos

This is one of our favorites.

Tortillas from stupideasypaleo are absolutely amazing. I makes these frequently.

Slow cooked chipotle tacos are from againstallgrain and they was easy and delicious. Only thing I changed was using chipotle pepper powder versus dried ones. I prepped everything the night before in the slow cooker and stored it in the refrigerator to start cook the next morning. An almost ready meal to come home to after work and crossfit is one of the best things ever!

Had these with avocado and salsa with sides of plantain chips and roasted sweet potatoes.

Meatball Mondays

Paleo Meatballs
2 pounds ground beef
1 chopped up small onion
4 minced garlic cloves
2 eggs
1/2 cup almond flour
Salt & pepper
Seasonings/herbs to your liking
(Such as paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, parsley, etc)

I like to brown my meatballs in bacon fat in a cast iron then finish it off in the oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Serve with zoodles and sauce!

“Will you be my….?”

I was searching the Internet for the perfect way to ask my sisters and friends to be apart of my wedding next year. Searches mainly lead to Pinterest and etsy and I found a lot of cute things and ideas, but nothing really caught my attention.

I wanted to make something special and cute. Thanksgiving was coming up when the perfect idea came to mind…

I put together little things I was thankful for…

Underneath all those little things was a card that said…

And then I stuffed everything into a box…

Can’t wait to make things for the wedding!

Intro

Finally starting a little blog to compile all my/our interests, hobbies, and loves into one place.

This little outlet was named kandjhappydays because these entries will most likely incorporate both Kevin and I. Originally a hashtag (#kandjhappyday) was created to collect pictures on Instagram related to our wedding, but I’ll like to believe our happy days are not limited to one…thus the creation of this little blog!

More than likely entries will be about our dog, Ava, whom we really think is one of the best dogs in the world. Sometimes it might just be a picture of her…but sometimes those are the best.

I will also be sharing the meals have together, as we eat predominately paleo, because it has changed our lives and hope that it inspires others to eat healthier and more mindfully. We also crossfit together, which I’ll probably not talk too much about because you’ll probably not enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing about it. But, it has not only improve our lives and health individually, but has made our relationship grow stronger,which naturally happens as a couple do things together.

Another big reason I wanted to start this blog was to record all the DIYness that will go into our wedding. I am so excited!
