Chinese 5 Spice Lettuce Cups

This recipe is another great one from the Practical Paleo cookbook.  I did not eat mine in a cup today because I had some leftover salad from supper last night.  Ths is another way to change up ground turkey and fresh veggies.  Today I added avocado.

Steak & Eggs Family Style

Stuck in a breakfast rut?  How about some steak & eggs. Customize this to your liking.  Add as much spice or seasonings that you like.   Here's how we made ours.  It made about 4-5 servings.

3 cups hash browns (we used leftovers from last night consisting of red & sweet potatoes & onions)
1 sirloin steak, sliced thin
eggs (however many you need to serve breakfast to)
variety of seasonings (salt, pepper, parsley, coconut aminos, garlic, etc)
oil (I used avocado & olive)

Fry hash browns, season and spread out on baking sheet.  Keep warm in hot oven.  Season and fry steak.  Add steak on top of hash browns.  Fry eggs and add to the top.  Serve.


Oven Fried Chicken (Paleo)

Any fried chicken lovers out there?  It is not something I'm crazy about.  I had a job during my college days working in a grocery store deli.  One of my glamorous duties was breading and frying chicken.  I must have deep fat fried hundreds of pieces of chicken!  It pretty much has ruined me on fried chicken forever.

This oven fried chicken recipe has wonderful flavor, is allergen friendly, and does not include any of the things that personally gross me out.  :) 

I must have been very in tune to my "southern blood" when preparing this meal.  Fried chicken, potato hash and green beans.  Hubby & all the kiddos really liked this recipe!

BBQ Meatballs

I have posted this recipe before, but I just made it this week and they are so good!  Anyone out there meal plan?  I go in spurts.  I have been planning on weekends and asking the kiddos for input.  It has made life easier and they enjoy looking at the list and knowing what we are having for supper.  Would my weekly meal plans be helpful?  Let me know and I can try to post what we are eating at our house.  In the meantime, put this recipe on your meal plan this week!  If needed prepare them ahead of time and have it ready to pop in the oven after a busy day.


Against All Grain Blender Bread

Danielle Walker shared her blender bread recipe on the Today show the other day.  You can find a copy of it here.  I decided to make a loaf of it and it turned out perfect!  Looking forward to having it for toast and sandwiches all week.  I substituted 17.5 ounces of unsalted cashew butter for the raw cashews and it worked great.

Lemon Aioli Sauce

I made our favorite chicken strips this week.  Our family loves them dipped in honey-mustard sauce.  I was in the mood for something different, so I made this Paleo Lemon Aioli Sauce.  It was a great alternative and even ended up on top of my sweet potatoes too!

Chocolate Chip Espresso Banana Bread Muffins

I really wanted to take a picture of these after supper, but they were ALL GONE!  I guess that is my family's stamp of approval.  :)  Try this muffin recipe the next time you have bananas to use.
