Rutabaga and Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash with Turkey Sausage

I won’t lie to you. I had to Google that to make sure I was spelling rutabaga right. I wasn’t. Oh well. Anyways, I decided to buy a rutabaga at Whole Foods the other day out of pure curiosity because I’ve never bought/eaten one before. I didn’t even know what one looked like. And apparently neither did the cashier because she was searching for it on their produce list for like an hour to find the price and had no clue what it was. And then once I told her, she still didn’t know where it was on the list so she gave it to me for free. There is nothing I love more in this world than free food. Especially when it comes from Whole Foods.

I am no longer phone-less! Please take a moment to welcome me back to the 21st century. I pretty much thought there was no hope and I was going to have to bite the bullet and buy a new one. My mom thought so too because when I left the house in a baseball cap and the same t-shirt I had just worn to work out in, she told me that wasn’t going to help my cause if there were any cute men working at the store. Thanks, Sue. Well I proved her wrong. I went to Apple and they completely replaced my phone. FOR FREE. Maybe I just smelled so bad that they wanted to get rid of me quick. It’s a possibility. God those are some good people.

I’ve been eating meat for breakfast lately. Not like breakfast sausage. Like legit meat. Pork, turkey, leftovers from dinner. Who am i? I like it though. But meat for breakfast usually means eggs for some other meal of the day. Because I love eggs. So this meal might seem like a breakfast to you. But yesterday it was my lunch. And it was goooood. And 21 Day Sugar Detox friendly. But none of you really care about that. Okay cool.
