Today is CSA box day, so we also will be having way too much fruit, and will have to figure out what to do with various things... like fennel. Seriously, fennel?
Fennel is awesome! Carmelize it. Or saute' it in butter. Or bake it with onions, any root veggies & any meat. It grows wild along foot paths, hikes & roadsides in NorCal. I like to chew on the juicy tender green sprouts when taking pause on hikes. It's refreshing, abates hunger, cleanses the palate & refreshes the breath.

Tonight is my final night in Australia. I have been here for the week along with Gwandad and some friends. I have not had any problems in restaurants. If the waitress doesn't understand, I ask to speak with the chef and he cooks me a fantabulous meal to my specifications. So...... tonight we might try another gorgeous place and ask for hmmmmm....maybe.........rump steak and mushrooms cooked in butter on top of a salad ? no adornments ?
I am looking forward to it already !!!!
thanx Australia for a great week

I have a few steaks in the fridge, marinating in coconut aminos, garlic, crushed red pepper flakes, and chili powder. I'll be grilling those bad boys up tonight alongside some swiss chard cooked in olive oil (for me; however, the non-paleo boyfriend will get corn & butter and a cucumber salad as his sides).
Left over chicken quarters and sliced up avocado. Some home fermented kraut. Glass of raw milk. I'm actually posting this ahead of time, but this is the plan. I may add some liverwurst to the hunt as it is also left over.
Tonight we had a dish my husband has been calling Rachel's Italian Summer Stew - A giant pan of veggies from my sisters garden supplemented with whatever we had in the fridge (tonight it was onion, zucchini, mushrooms and a variety of peppers) sauteed in some butter, with some chopped up italian sausage added in as well as a few seasonings. Pour over a jar of Cleveland's Own Little Italy marinara and simmer. Sprinkled some fresh grated romano on top. Very easy, and it was great!
