Three Pea Cashew Chicken Stir Fry with Cauliflower Fried Rice

Three Pea Cashew Chicken Stir Fry and Cauliflower Fried Rice (from Paleo Cupboard) were wonderful together!  The Fried Rice has become a favorite for Jay.  With Elle going out of town for a week for work and her sister’s baby shower, they made up a huge batch to get him through the week.  We tried it with one less egg than the recipe calls for and it was absolutely perfect.  This one we will definitely be making again soon!

London Broil, Salad, and Strawberries

So Elle has had this one on her phone for a little bit and kept forgetting to post it!  We made up some London Broil, a beautiful salad, and a bowl of fresh cut strawberries.  The London Broil marinated all day on Saturday to give it lots of extra flavor.  Elle cut the steak up a little further and ate it along with the salad which was perfect! Jay likes his steak all by itself, meat meat meat!  This dinner was great for a warm night and makes wonderful leftovers.

Roast Chicken with Pan Sauce, Salad, and Fresh Cut Strawberries

Tonight’s dinner was definitely a down home meal!  We made up the Roast Chicken with Pan Sauce, a salad (with tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese, and radishes on top of lettuce and spinach with vinaigrette dressing), and a bowl of fresh cut strawberries.  Instead of using chicken breasts as the recipe calls for, we used chicken thighs / legs.  Elle got a great deal on a family pack (bone in, skin on) from a local farmer’s market!

The recipe was absolutely delicious!  Jay had a good comment on the flavor–it tastes like home cooked chicken noodle soup (minus the noodles of course!).  The chicken fell off the bone but next time we will probably do it with the bone- in, skin on breasts instead to make it a little easier to eat.  Enjoy!

Thai Chicken Wraps and Sweet Potato Fries

A big weekend for us!  Yard work and closed up the pool on Saturday.  Total clean out and re-organization of the garage on Sunday.  Because oh yes, first Sunday of the NFL season.  Jay is happy.

Our first time trying the Thai Chicken Wraps that we found on Paleo Plan.  Delicious!  We modified from the link’s recipe slightly and added some spices and curry.  We felt like a little kick tonight!

Had one of our staple side dishes in Sweet Potato Fries, with more-than-normal red pepper flakes tonight.  See above comment on wanting a little kick tonight.

Dishes done in time for Sunday Night Football!

Steak and Brussels Dinner August 9, 2013

So Wednesday night was seafood dinner (and you guys have seen enough pictures of our seafood dinners already!) with Leftovers on Thursday.  Friday night we cooked up some Porterhouse steaks (seasoned with just meat tenderizer, garlic powder, and seasoning salt) and some Brussels and Bacon.  We are currently in the process of moving so we used the broiler for the steaks and they turned out fantastic!

We just did 3-4 minutes per side on the top rack for Medium Rare.  Great Friday night dinner!!!DSCN3509

Deconstructed Paleo Tacos with Pico de Gallo July 31, 2013

It was awesome for Elle to come home from travelling for work to Jay having made some delicious Deconstructed Paleo Tacos topped with Pico de Gallo.  Such a great partner!  The tacos had lettuce, cheese, sliced mushrooms, and Pico de Gallo on top of the seasoned ground beef.  This is a recipe from Sarah Fragoso’s Book Everyday Paleo and is absolutely wonderful for a quick and easy dinner night.  The Pico was a new recipe for us but went very well with the tacos–no other dressing needed!
