HELPS a lot! It’s a lovely Mount Eden Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon. If any of you have any ideas on how to get your food to cooperate during a shoot, let me know LOL.

I was made to LOVE you” by Toby Mac is playing from my computer as I sit here holding Baby Eden. I’m mesmerised by his wonderful loving personality and the smile he constantly displays on his face. This Song is perfect for us. My baby is getting hungry so I will tell you…

What You Will Need:

1 Lb. Lean ground pork (Lamb would go so well with this if you can find some at your local butcher. I would add some feta cheese to it as well.)

1 Fennel bulb, minced

1 C. Sun dried tomatoes. chopped

2 Tbsp. Rosemary, minced

2 Tbsp. Dried oregano

1/2 Tsp. Salt

1 Red onion, sliced

2 Red bell peppers, sliced

1/2 Tsp. Olive oil

Bib lettuce leaves for serving

Did you get everything??

Prep your Mis en Place 😉

Gently mix the ingredients, and roll into bite sized balls and place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. (Oh cookies sound good!)

Place in the oven and cook for 15 minutes. That’s enough time for the pork to cook but still allow some “bite” left in the fennel. Speaking of fennel, I just love how this dish allows for those “hidden” veggies, plus it allows for more flavor to explode!

While the pork bites are cooking, in a pan set to medium high heat cook the bell pepper with the onion, and olive oil until soft.

Serve the bites on the leaf of the bib lettuce and top with the sautéed bell pepper and onion.This dish is packed with so much belly filling protein and healthy fiber! I’m so pleased!!! Yum!!
