Breakfast Chez Nom Nom Paleo

Pin It

I think I’m back to my 12-13 hour fast between dinner and breakfast again.  The 16 hour fast yesterday is totally an anomaly because I get so damn ravenous.  So for breakfast this morning, I had some leftover Mei Quin Choy and roasted cremini mushrooms (that I nuked for a minute), topped with some smoked salmon from Dittmer’s.

Then, per usual, I scarfed down some more coconut flakes and mac nuts.

Halloweiners

My 5 year-old had his kindergarten Halloween party this morning so I decided we’d bring some cocktail franks that I bought from Dittmer’s to the potluck.

I cut the linked franks to separate them, pierced them with a sharp paring knife, and fried them up before taking them to the party.

Since we were having lunch in the classroom, my lunch was pretty pathetic and not photogenic — hence, no pics.  I made myself a plate of raw veggies (that none of the kids touched), ate a few mini franks, a handful of cashews (which I brought myself), and a Tanka bar.  The Tanka bar was pretty tasty.  It kinda reminded me of Chinese porky jerky I had as a kid — a reddish-brown sweet and savory meaty treat.

Meat Oasis: Dittmer’s Gourmet Meats & Wurst-Haus (Mountain View)

Smoked meats, award winning sausages, high quality fresh meat, friendly and knowledgeable butchers — Dittmer’s has it all.  I didn’t see a lot of grass-fed beef, but the freezer is stocked with venison, buffalo, and elk and they routinely carry free range chicken and turkey (Diestel).  Plus, for all you sous viders out there, they have a variety of pre-marinated, vacuum sealed meats that you can pop into a Sous Vide Supreme right out of the fridge or freezer.  

Yes, the smoked meats are cured with sugar (so they aren’t truly Paleo) but I don’t give a rat’s ass.  They’re damn tasty.

I heard the owner’s son telling a customer that they are super swamped right now fulfilling World Series party orders and things are only going to get busier with the holidays around the corner.  So what are you waiting for? Haul your glutes over to Dittmer’s pronto.  Bitte schön!
