Supah weekend here on the Murphy front.
After football practice we hit the beach. It was a beautiful afternoon. August even did great. Seamus hated the beach as an infant so it was a wonderful treat when August hung out all afternoon like a champ.
After the beach this happened. The boys made a plan in the shower to get all spiffied up to go to dinner. Killian did his hair and, I do believe, Seamus wore underwear instead of going commando as he usually does when he’s responsible for getting himself dressed. Seamus also allowed Killian to comb his hair into this super stylish comb over style. Seamus did not match obviously and Killian has Seamy’s shirt on, but I so appreciated and loved this sweet gesture.
Mister started the day off at 6am with a 5k row to honor Liam Macomber. He didn’t want to miss the boys football games so chose to do this instead or running in the actual 5k which he’s done almost every year. Awesome idea and he crussshhhed it!!
THESE guys also crushed it today!! Killian had 2 touchdowns and some stellar tackles. Dallas got a two point conversion and a 55 yard touchdown pass. My goal is to start understanding football (after 3 years, it’s time). I’m always there, I just don’t know what’s going on.
Oh! I made Paleo Shephards Pie for dinner. Here’s the recipe:
(Not sure where this recipe came from. DC gave it to me moons ago).
2 lbs. grass fed beef
1lb. cooked bacon
4 sweet potatoes
4 carrots chopped
4 celery stalks chopped
1 onion chopped
2 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. Paprika
Bake or steam sweet potatoes.
Sauté veggies for few and add ground beef. When potatoes are done whip up in food processor with some coconut milk or chicken broth. Put meat mixture at bottom of 9×11 dish and spread sweet potato over the top. Bake at 350 for 30 min.
I have never actually put the bacon on so I’m assuming you can mix it in with meat mixture or sprinkle bits over finished product so it stays crispy. Mmmmmm. Yum.
