Caveman Feast

Best. Paleo dinner. Ever.

And just in time. I was getting weak and seriously questioning this decision. But tonight, I made slow cooked veal with homemade salsa, zucchini soup, and homemade applesauce. The applesauce was better than any I’ve ever had, the veal was so tender, and the soup had a nice kick to it (made with dried parsley that I dried on my own!). Steph, David, and Nicole can all attest to the delicious-ity of this meal.

Only if I can keep up this cooking. Hopefully, the slow-cooker will make for some more easy and tasty meals that will keep me on track.

Also, second go on the beef jerky. This time I used flank steak and cut it into nice sized strips. Fingers crossed. Banana and apple chips are next.


Learning to cook

Day (4)

Tried to make my own Paleo hot sauce today for some Paleo buffalo chicken strips. Bought some apple cider vinegar and was planning to use some spices I already got. Then I realized it would be better with fresh peppers, so will try that this weekend. So the chicken came out bland, but would have been sweet with the sauce.

Used naturally raised chicken, cut into strips, basted in organic mustard (no salt added) and honey mixed and tried to used crushed almonds for breading. No blender so I used the back of an ice cream scooper to crush them in a ziploc. So difficult. Didn’t work out too well. Note to self: buy a food processor.

...like a kid in a candy storeIn other news, my food dehydrator arrived yesterday! So pumped. Wasn’t expecting it until late next week, but I just signed up for the free trial of Amazon Prime so I guess they bumped up that shipment, too. Just haven’t had time to open it yet. Can’t wait. Will post with how my first beef jerky comes out 🙂
