After getting stiffed one hour of sleep, I rolled out of bed and made everyone breakfast. I fried Thai omelets in bacon grease…
…and plated them with fresh lox from Siren SeaSA and marinated bell peppers.
You guys must season your eggs with Red Boat Fish Sauce – it just adds that indescribable savoriness you’re craving. In fact, everything you make should get a drop or two of this fantastic umami in a bottle.
For lunch, the boys and I made Mini Egg Pizzas from The Paleo Parents’ cookbook, Eat Like A Dinosaur. This cookbook is filled with a ton of great recipes to get your kids on board the Paleo train.
Both boys were very excited to help out with the cooking. Big-O helped sauté the filling…
…and Lil-O helped whisk the eggs and herbs. (He put on a snazzy red bow tie for the occasion, too.)
We substituted the suggested filling with stuff we had on hand – leftover baby kale and diced smoked sausage – and the muffins smelled super-yummy as they were baking.
The pizza muffins tasted fantastic and everybody – even picky Lil-O – gobbled them up.
The inclusion of tomato paste and diced tomatoes adds that special umami punch to these tiny frittatas. Now if only I could find a waffle iron, I could make my boys some of the Paleo Parents’ Frozen Waffles…
In the afternoon, I practiced my cooking demonstration that I’m presenting at the end of this week at PaleoFX. I’m making a recipe from my upcoming iPad cooking app – spicy crab and avocado temaki – so I practiced my clumsy banter while whisking mayo. Please, oh please, don’t let me make a fool of myself in Austin.
For dinner, I roasted a batch of Damn Fine Chicken that I also seasoned with Magic Mushroom Powder (yes, the recipe’ll be available on my upcoming iPad cooking app).
To accompany the drumsticks, I sautéed some broccolini with onions, a splash of broth, Magic Mushroom Powder, and Red Boat Fish Sauce.
Here’s my dinner plate:
Hey! Don’t forget I’ve got a grass fed beef giveaway from TX Bar Organics! May the beef be with you!
