bison! {tampa food photographer}

um, so, yes. bison. just the sound of a lean, hormone-free, delicious meat makes me happy. add an allrecipes partnership with the bison council and a gift of ground bison from high plains bison, and now everyone in our house is waiting excitedly for the delivery to arrive so we can try the highly acclaimed meat.

i served ours open-faced, as the recipe suggests, on paleo herb buns from multiply delicious.

we haven’t found it in stores near us yet, but we now know we can order it and it comes magically packaged in a styrofoam cooler and ice packs.  🙂

this recipe for stuffed bison burgers with caramelized figs and shallots is mouthwateringly delicious.  i ate one for dinner.  i ate one for lunch the next day.  and for breakfast the following day after that.  i know, right?

one tip: when i hit the grocery for gruyere, smoked gouda was on sale for $2 less per pound.  i tasted both, and found them very similar, so i took the savings.  the gouda was perfect – smoky and dense, the perfect counter for the sweet figs.  i know some don’t, but i love the little crunch of fig seeds!

allrecipes now has a hub with bison recipes, and you can also find amazing ideas at the bison council website.

little one…

i neither need, nor want, you to become a rock-star-idol photographer, nor speaker, nor any other kind of idol.  i want you to be in relationship to those in your life.

i may call you to speak to larger groups through the gifts i’ve blessed you with.  but always, it’s for the heart.  dance and sing, laugh and play!  enjoy the food, the books, the art, the music.  i’ve made it all.  and it is for my Glory that i share it with you.

do not fret, nor strategize, on how you will achieve.  plan quietly, humbly, and work hard.  but do not forget to rest.  and do not forget that i already have you cared for.  and it is good.

(images from our day.  we studied abstract art.  ate gazpacho.  did latin and pre-algebra and writing and so-on and so-on.  we laughed and we got ugly and we said “i’m sorry” and we prayed.  it was a good day.)

smoked {turkey} sausage frittata

frittata.  fritatta.  say it three times fast.  spell it correctly. (which one is it? hint: i’ve spelled it wrong at least once here.)  it’s a funny word!

for some reason, whenever we do one of these in the skillet, it always gets a texture my crew doesn’t love.  so oldest got the idea he’d make this recipe in a large casserole dish (doubled, everything, in my house).  it was perfect!  fast, fairly reasonable to feed our herd-of-seven, and very filling.  paired with a fresh tomato-basil-salad, it was a great weeknight meal!

i’m betting we could probably mix this up and keep it in the fridge overnight or whip it up in the morning and eat for lunch (we tend to eat our “big meal” at lunch what with our home school schedule).
