It’s been a while since I posted any food stuff. I got side tracked. Things evolved. I still cook, I haven’t completely given over to take out boxes………. I’m still on my paleo journey….
Here are some dishes that I have done recently. In no particular order of yumminess.
So this is a favourite at the moment. I love brussels and as it’s getting cold outside they are a perfect accompaniment to almost anything.
Cut the brussels in half, throw them in a dish
then throw over the top:
1 onion, chopped
button mushrooms sliced
dried apricots chopped
3 slices bacon chopped
put in oven at 380 for about 40 mins, stirring occasionally, the fruit sweetens the brussels and they cook in the bacon fat. Everything cooked in bacon fat is good right? They’re awesome cold the next day too!
Sweet potato has become a staple in this house, The King hates potatoes anyway, something about being Irish… I don’t know.
I don’t eat them because they’re technically not paleo…although sometimes I will cook them. But sweet potato is our go to roaster right now. I sometimes make them as oven fries with parsnip, which the kids love, other times I cut the chunks bigger, so they are most roasted veges.
Just cut them up, drizzle with oil and put them in the oven next to the brussels
Ok so by the time I remembered to take a photo I’d already served most of them up but they still look yummy.
The King is a steak man, most men are, he loves it and as luck would have it we have a butcher literally next door, selling organic, grass fed beef, lamb, chicken and every other meat required in any carnivore household. He loves to cook it and has a whole routine, including slapping the steak and commenting that it sounds like a stripper’s ass, OH please…….Miss Gremlin thinks this is spectacular and never lets him forget to do it. (insert eye roll)
I just stay out of the way and man the steak alarm (smoke detector) with the billiard que.. He never fails to set the thing off. I swear no one will even flinch when the detector goes off for real, not even the dog..The only down side is the mess. The grease that cooking steak produces is insane and naturally it’s MY job to clean up…. But I don’t have to cook so I’ll take it.
Here’s last weeks effort..
And here’s what it all looks like together on a plate…. Paleo ain’t so bad. When people ask what we eat if not grains…… well here’s your answer.
