I sure do. Like this one. Why the hell does the explanation of the entire salad have to be in the title? Because it does. That’s how it is. I do what I want. I made chocolate coconut butter yesterday. I want to make love to it. I’m trying to close off my chocolate covered nut addiction. No more nuts for Juli and Laura. We made a pact. We are looking for alternatives. Including men. Life was good the other day. I grew some balls and started to try to string together my muscle ups. I HATE muscle ups. Truly hate them. They hurt, they are uncomfortable, and they make me cry. And I’m too good at crying that doing muscle ups regularly would make me a weirdo. A crying weirdo. So the other day, when I was feeling good, I decided to try to connect my muscle ups. And I did it!! Well, only 2, but that’s better than one! I was so excited. Then the next day came, and I could feel every muscle throughout my chest. My boobs literally felt like grapefruits taped to my chest. Have you ever tried to run with grapefruits taped to your chest? Let me tell you now, it sucks. Don’t try it. Anywho, guess what I’ve been doing!? Blogging for The New Primal! I’ve been chatting it up about my outdoor adventures. I’ll soon be talking about my adventure with a mountain, plus a bicycle, and how frightening that can be for an awkward person like me. There are a few things I shouldn’t be allowed to do. First, eat gluten. Second, wear spandex shorts. And third, try new outdoor sports in front of other people. It’s just nerve racking…mostly for them. Could you imagine if I ate gluten and went mountain biking while wearing spandex shorts? Ew. That would just be downright awful for onlookers. ]]> Carrot Salad Fri, 23 Feb 2018 14:54:28 +0000 Carrot SaladQuestion: How do you repair your house when it is officially bursting at the seams? I can’’t answer that – yet – but I can tell you that 8-handed Apples to Apples when half of the people playing are half in the bag is a hilarious experience. I’’m terribly busy this morning (I had to come into the office to be able to log on to my laptop – how’’s that for a vacation? LOL), but I do have time to give you the recipe for this simple, classic summer salad. Because it’’s what you make when you have 6 quarts of carrots from your CSA in the fridge. (The remainder will be canned. Soon. I hope.) Later this week, I’’ll give you the method for the Perfect Smoked Beef Brisket. If Beloved lets me – I think it may now be a family secret. Have a lovely Monday, y’’all., ]]> Salmon Picatta Fri, 23 Feb 2018 14:54:28 +0000 Salmon PicattaSalmon Picatta...a twist on a classic! ]]> Colcannon Fri, 23 Feb 2018 14:54:28 +0000 ColcannonA favorite Irish recipe, this version of Colcannon is made with Japanese sweet potatoes and collard greens.

Since going Paleo, a little over a month now, I find myself in the kitchen a lot during the weekends planning my lunches for the week. Of course towards the end of the week the cabinets are a bit bare and the only option left is a spinach salad, you know the typical salad...great but boring! I needed a little change this week which meant I needed several lunch options to avoid the spinach salad come Thursday and Friday. This weekend I got in the kitchen and got creative. For example, this salad came about by looking in my refrigerator to see what I had and what I could make. Sometimes these can be a hit or a miss. Luckily in the case of this chicken salad it was a hit. The roasted peppers add a slight sweetness to the salad and the almonds add a slight crunch. The best of both worlds. The dressing I adapted from my Chicken Salad with Peas and Herb Vinaigrette, one of my first recipes on the blog, but I changed it up to make it Paleo. So no honey, no rice vinegar, no honey mustard, etc. The dressing turned out great and it was the perfect balance with the other ingredients in the salad. For a fun idea to serve the chicken salad, you can cut an avocado in half removing the pit and place a scoop of salad carefully in the hole where the pit was. I saw this idea in the Food Network magazine a few months ago and knew I had to try it. Yum! Of course that is totally optional. I have also made “wraps” out of the salad by wrapping it in lettuce leaves. Another option to enjoy the salad. I have to say this was meant for this weeks lunch but I found it hard not to eat the whole thing this weekend. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! ]]> Crockpot Thai Red Curry Fri, 23 Feb 2018 14:54:28 +0000 Crockpot Thai Red CurryThis is the summer of “quick and easy” from now on. I’’m totally loving my crockpot at the moment- I can throw something together at night, refrigerate the base, set it to “low” in the morning, and come home to a hot, hearty meal before heading off to visit this sweet girl... She’’s mine now, at least for a few months. I went trail riding with a friend a few times this spring and was again stricken by the “horse bug” I’’d suffered most of my teenage years. Riding has always been super-Zen for me, quiet and mind-clearing like yoga but without the “mental grumping” that usually infiltrates the first 20 or so minutes of my practice. I’’ve been “fur-deprived” since starting college in ‘’04 – my apartments have never been cat friendly and always too small for a dog- now I’’m surrounded by ponies and cats and dogs and goats and bunnies (Oh My!). Anywho- on to the recipe. Thai food is SO GOOD in the hot summer months, especially cold leftovers! After I recreated MY go-to-Thai restaurant dish (link) I figured I’’d try my boyfriend’’s- and, we both agree- it was amazing over zucchini noodles (link) (me) and rice (him). Better still, it’’s cooked in the crock pot so the only prep work is washing/ chopping veggies and meat., ]]> Veal Stew Fri, 23 Feb 2018 14:54:28 +0000 Veal StewMy version of Blanquette de Veau - simple French food that soothes and comforts.
