Healthy Grilled Turkey Cucumber Sandwich

I’ve been looking at my life through the eyes in the mirror and not liking what I see very much.  It seems to me that much of my life is out of shape–quite literally.  So, I’m making a commitment today to eat healthier, walk more, and make my outlook even more positive.  I truly believe we can accomplish anything if we put our minds to it and it’s even easier when you have a partner to help you through the rough spots.  Dolly and I agree we both are in need of some changes, so this meal is a step to a healthier me, and thanks to Dolly and a strong need for change, this is my year.

I know you’re going to love this recipe as much as we did.  I had some ground turkey in the freezer that I bought on a whim last month, so I thought, “Well, that’s one way I can eat healthier and use up that meat I bought on an impulse buy.”  See, there are good things that come from changing your habits. :)  Here’s a picture of the outcome.

Dave's Southern Fried Eggs

Dave’s Southern Fried Eggs – A Fabulous and Quick Brunch Idea!

Recently, my brother, Dave, came to visit me here in Austin, Texas. I love when he visits! Aside from porch sitting, and enjoying delicious cups of coffee, he always brings a great recipe for us to share with you guys. (Remember the pear dessert?) This time he brought sausage wrapped, fried eggs! This breakfast recipe is like toast, sausage, and egg all in one. It’s rich and impressively tasty. Also, it’s pretty simple to make, so you can whip it up in no time for guests.

You could pair it with breakfast potatoes, if you like, but fruit salad was a great side for us. There’s no secret to the fruit salad recipe either. We put a bunch of our favorite fruit in a bowl with a tablespoon of orange juice and mixed it up. Anyhoo, here is the recipe for you all to enjoy. Continue reading
