Paleo: Day 12

Today we finished up the jerky… i.e. dehydrating it in the oven.  Tastes so amazing!  I based the marinade on this recipe, but modified it slightly and ended up with the following ingredients (and a longer marinating time):

2 cups Tamari sauce (wheat-free soy sauce)

1 cup Worcestershire sauce

3 cups cranberry-grape juice (there was a LOT of meat)

¼ cup Teriyaki sauce

1 cup light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon (or more) ground black pepper, or to taste

Basically blended it all up… then Mom cut the meat into slices and it marinated for a couple of days in the fridge before we finished it up today! The finished product is DELICIOUS.

On to today’s menu!

For breakfast I cooked up some eggs with a side of zucchini. Pretty tasty.

We had a salad with turkey bacon for lunch… sooo good! Loved the salad, it had pine nuts in it and they were delectable.

For dinner I cooked a new version of chicken curry and it was a nice change for sure.

Fun day! Rabbit trail: I received a package from Lime Crime Makeup today… FANTASTIC! I had never tried their products before, but they are quickly climbing to the top of my “favorites” list.  The lipstick [which is gluten free!] stayed on through eating and drinking tea.  Exquisite.  Can’t wait to try out the eye shadow tomorrow! Thanks Lime Crime!

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!!
