Paleo Eats: 1/7/12 (Whole30 Day 7)

Pin It

Happy Saturday!

When I woke up in the morning, I ate a bowl of leftover Slow Cooker Cheater Pork Stew and roasted vegetables…

…and a hard boiled egg topped with Pele’s Fire Sea Salt.

Fitbomb and I were spending the morning at Lil-O’s preschool to participate in one of the mandatory maintenance days. Before we left, I sauteed some leeks and onions…

…with salt, pepper, and a dollop of tomato paste…

…dumped them in the slow cooker, and plopped a seasoned pastured chicken from Full of Life Farm on top.

By the time we returned home at noon, the Slow Cooker Roast Chicken was ready to eat for lunch. After a morning spent raking leaves, hauling trash, and spiffing up the school, we were famished. Luckily, I didn’t have to cook anything new to accompany the chicken…

…and gravy…

…because we had lots of leftovers: pressure cooker braised spicy kale…

…Asian-style Scotch eggs…

…and cauliflower puree.

I know this lunch seems like a lot of food but my parents and Aunt Doris were dining with us as well.

After lunch, Big-O helped me marinate some duck legs that I’ll be slow-roasting on Monday…

…and I also seasoned a lamb leg roast with salt, pepper, and homemade Dukka seasoning.

The rest of the afternoon was spent chasing the kids at the park and catching some rays. 

For dinner, I slow-roasted the lamb (250 F for about 2 hours or until the internal temp reached 125F)…

…and sauteed rapini and onions with red pepper flakes and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Here’s my dinner plate:

As an aperitif, I downed a shot glass of coconut cream

My cooking didn’t stop there — I made a batch of spicy tuna cakes…

…whisked a batch of Paleo mayonnaise

…and marinated several pounds of Magic Chicken Drummettes with Magic Powder.

One week down, and a little more than three to go!
