BBQ weekends

The last few weeks have just been a whirlwind of long days and so many things going on. To start with, the launch of my business has been great. I have a few clients that I've been working with and a couple up and coming clients that I'll be starting to work with in the near future. This has been so exciting and so much fun. I've just recently gotten my business cards and logo all finished up and it looks amazing!
As for the meal portion of all this! Incredible!! I've got some sort of inspiration bug going on! I've been totally inspired to write some of my own recipes... Who knows what that could turn into eventually. :)

I said BBQ weekends on the title of this blog and that is exactly whats been happening the last 2 weekends. Last weekend was my son (Nicolas) 10th birthday party. He celebrated this with his good buddy Justin who also turned 10 over the weekend. We had about 25 kids and 25 adults here to help us celebrate. We had fresh fruit and veggie platters, hamburgers, hot dogs and 1 AMAZING birthday cake that my friend Carmen who owns Aloha Cakes! She does an incredible job at decorating and designing cakes! Nic and Justin (being 10) are so into Beyblades! That is exactly what she did was design a ginormous Beyblade stadium with some handmade Beyblades in it! :)

This weekend was graduation weekend. My 'neice' Chalina's boyfriend graduated Saturday and we had a huge family BBQ! Once again, the same scenario. We had hot dogs, hamburgers, fruits and veggies and I actually attempted to make a Paleo German potato salad. I think it turned out amazing and the husband actually liked it as well! Instead of using sugar, I used honey and sweet potatoes instead of your normal potatoes. Needless to say, there wasn't much left after the evening was over. :)

All and all it's been a great couple of weeks! Hoping when school is out and I have kids around, I'll be able to get them on a more strict Paleo meal plan as opposed to what some of the school lunches have been. I know Ellie will be amazingly easy to convert because she already is. But the boys, well, I think they are going to be a little more difficult in the persuasion category!

I have more amazing meals and recipes to come in the near future... Including a Lemon Aeoli that I accidentally created. It's one of my go to sauces now!

Till next time...
