Apricot Glazed Haricots Verts with Bacon (Organic)
I had a fantastic article planned to share with you guys today, but for some reason WordPress doesn’t like my outline form and no matter how I try to fix the formatting it won’t allow it. So instead of tinkering with it any longer, and because it’s 5:10 in the morning and I haven’t gone to sleep yet- I thought I’d share this recipe.

Just don’t tell me if you do. It’ll make me cry…

I still have two recipes to go and they both call for cheese. I’m laughing at myself. I have to make sure to spread those meals out over several weeks versus one week because my cheese bill was insane!! Twice-baked potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes. I especially like them with a good rib-eye steak.
One Pot Hearty Beef Stew (Organic/GMO-Free)
I don’t know about you, but nothing warms me up like a bowl of beef stew. Rich gravy-like sauce, tender veggies, chunks of beef that melt in your mouth. It’s soul food if ever there was. This stew is comforting, hearty and it’ll warm you up. It’s like getting a hug from the inside out. Eating this stew even makes me happy. How’s that for emotional eating?
Peachy-Keen Sweet Potatoes
You guys are going to like this spin on a Thanksgiving classic side dish. And trust, me I know exactly what you’re thinking. You’re thinking “Peaches AND Sweet Potatoes?!?!” “Is this woman out of her ever lovin’ mind?!” Well, as a matter of fact, probably. But yes, peaches *do* go well with sweet potatoes and I’ll prove it to you. It would actually work better if you made this dish so you had additional evidence with which I could prove just how right I really am.
