Paleo: Day 11

I was really curious about how breakfast world turn out… because this morning, I cooked Ginger Eggs.  Sounds odd, tastes amazing!  Way happy with how they turned out, could definitely taste an Asian influence.  Delicious.

Got some sister-time with Tooti this morning, super fun and she helped me plan a surprise for Mom… more on that later.

I boiled some beets (best song for cooking beets? Beat It. Also, try busting out some of those dance moves the next time you go grocery shopping.) for a beet-apple salad to go with the cod for lunch… A few days ago, I didn’t know what a beet looked like (other than the canned kind).  I sure had never cooked one before!  The salad was definitely tasty and while beets don’t make my “LOVE it” list, it was a fun experience and different type of treat.  The fish was delish.  Side Note: Beets WILL stain you hands.  A lot.

I cooked some chicken and cauliflower in the crockpot for dinner and it was time to start the surprise… I saw this recipe on FastPaleo.com for Paleo Brownies this morning and after some thought (and sneaking help from Tooti), I decided that it would make a nice surprise for Mom this evening.  I’m so proud of her for doing so well (and being open to) going Paleo that I wanted to do something nice to surprise her.

So, when we were out, we picked up some 85% Lindt Dark Chocolate… and after insisting that Mom take a break and have some tea in the living room… I made the brownies.

OH. MY. GOODNESS.

When I took the brownies out of the oven and surprised Mom with them, she was happily shocked! She had no idea that I was making brownies!  Best brownies ever.  I mean EVER. Of any kind.  They were DELICIOUS. We paired them with coconut whipped cream too… best ever.

So good! Mom was surprised, it was amazing.

Thanks to FastPaleo.com and Nutty Kitchen for the scrumdiddlyumtious recipes!!

Paleo: Day 5

Happy Labor Day!

Today for breakfast I cooked a ground beef and spinach stir fry, served with a couple of eggs.  It was different and good.

The cool front that came through last night stuck around today, so Mom and I decided to go out and snoop around enjoying the weather.  We had a lot of fun and the weather was INCREDIBLE.

I cooked up some tilapia with marinara sauce for lunch; it had this Italian-y flavor flare.  I wouldn’t have thought of the tilapia-marinara combo, but I loved it!  After lunch we ran (drove) to the store and the weather was so rad that we drove home with the windows down, it felt great!

I’ve been excited about tonight’s dinner since yesterday… Spaghetti squash with meat sauce.  I LOVE spaghetti. L-O-V-E. Love, love, love it.  I had a lot of fun cooking it and the taste was even better than I had imagined. It was so good that there were no leftovers when we were done. I felt like I was in the scene on A Night at the Opera (Marx Brother’s) where they’re on the cruise ship getting Italian food and there’s this GIANT pot of spaghetti. LOVED it.  It was so good… So good.
