Short and sweet and some meal prep

It is that time of year..where every minute of the day on the weekends is spent in the combine, in the big blue truck, or in the tractor...such is the "farmlife" but I absolutely love harvest even if I don't see my husband much...maybe that is why I like it...
I kid, I kid. 
How can you not love that fine peice of....
sorry, lost focus

 Of course during downtime there is alwasy a game of football going on.......

I am guessing you know who the popular one is between mom and dad...
I don't hold a candle to farming with Grandpa and Dad so the boys do spend quite a bit of time out in the fields helping them which leaves me to get some major meal prep done...
 Left to right: Sirloin Tip Roast(supper tonight), roasted brussel sprouts and cauliflower,caulirice, sweet potato fries, baked chicken breasts, roasted broccoli, quinoa, ground turkey with peppers, asparagus...not shown no bake protein bars


And for supper last night, Bison Meatloaf...it was fantastic, and it was so easy.  I had never tried Bison so when I saw it at Costco I thought we would give it a whirl this weekend. 
Recipe:

Ingredients:
 
1 package of Bison meet(Costco 1.25 pounds)
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 tablespoon of cumin
1 tablespoon of onion salt
1/2 onion
1 pepper (yellow, red)
 1 egg
1 6oz can of tomato paste
 
Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

 While oven is preheating, saute the onion and peppers in a pan till onions have caramelized
 
Mash everything together in bowl and place in medium sized baking dish

Line the top with 8-10 pieces of bacon

Bake for 35-40 minutes or till meat is cooked through

 Workouts have been great.....hitting the weights hard with some HIIT Intervals. 

 Just a cozy bunch watching some Saturday morning cartoons before breakfast!
 I got to enjoy some fireside volleyball watching on Friday night while the two olders were at the football game and Big E was sound asleep. 
So much for short and sweet huh...eh, what can you do...
-------------------------------------------------
Another busy week here....any big plans for you this week?

P.S. There is snow in the forecast tonight....I am so not ready for that.  It will make for a long winter if it shows up that early.
