we are having some friends over for easter, i think she's bringing potato salad and cheesecake. i'm making a sirloin roast, maybe some steamed green beans, and an angel food cake made from rice flour with sliced strawberries and whipped cream. i'm taking it easy on sunday's menu as i'm also making a bunch of food for tomorrow for a different event: another sirloin roast, roasted potatoes, two cheesecakes, jalapeno poppers, salad (homemade pesto vinaigrette), crudites (with homemade ranch), and buffalo wings (w/homemade blue cheese dressing).
For Passover, we had roast chicken, matzo ball soup a la Elena (with almond flour, no matzah meal), roast asparagus, a veggie kugel (think carrots, onions, spinach, some other stuff and eggs all mixed together and baked like a fritatta, but with fewer eggs and more veggies) and a strawberry chocolate tart with a walnut/pecan crust. And charoset, horseradish, and regular old matzah, natch.
If there is one thing I love about my family, despite the fact they all eat the SAD, they know how to celebrate a holiday, and I have a brother-in-law that is a grill-effin'-master that does prime rib that is to die for.
I have every intention of gorging myself Sunday. This Grok won't have to hunt on Monday.
He's slow smoking ribs (memphis style, so a dry rub, no sugar laden sauces!) and hubby is doing steaks. I'm going to blow the whole thing out of the water with my bacon wrapped pork tenderloin and spicy mustard dip though! I'm sure there will be salad as well. lol
The more I see the less I know for sure.
My father belongs to a yacht club here in San Diego and they have a big brunch each year for Easter. Fortunately it will fall on day 3 of my no-cheat no-exception challenge so whatever they have I am going to either stick to primal foods or not eat.
Typically they have eggs, bacon, potatoes, fruit, doughnuts, bagels, pies, etc etc. Im sure I'll get enough protein at least. Besides with IF I typically do not eat until 3pm and this brunch is at 10:30 am.
I will say that before I went primal, I used to probably eat several thousand calories in one sitting at these brunches. I do not miss how I felt afterwards!
My family is making brunch....cinnamon rolls, pancakes, and store-bought quiche. So as usual, I'll be making my own separate meal and everyone will make comments about how weird I am and why can't I just eat like a "normal" person. Oh man, I just love the holidays...
