My wife made a pear and pork stuffed winter squash out of the "Everyday Paleo" cook book. Has onion, garlic, carrots, pear, and ground pork with seasoning all stuffed in some squash. Quite excellent (we skipped B-dubs and listened to the game over the interwebs). Woot....Ode to pork weekend!
Chicken thighs with roasted cauliflower. Basically, brown the chicken thighs and remove from pan. Add cauliflower florets to chicken fat in pan (cast iron!) and toss with red chili pepper flakes/salt. Next chicken on top of cauliflower and finish in a 450 degree oven for about 22-25 minutes. Squeeze 1T lime juice on top and toss with 1/2 c cilantro.
YUM! If the chicken thighs are extra greasy, take some of the fat of the pan before you add the raw cauliflower florets. It can get a bit too much for some...

Trying something new with Chilli Con Carne since neither of us really wanted to eat much on Friday night:
... leaving me a heap of Chilli Con Carne to make into tonight's dinner - Enchilladas Suizas:
It was a bit of a dairy-fest ... so primally okay, given the choices ... the tortilla were made from cream cheese and eggs, the cheese sauce from a roux of butter and manioc flour, buttermilk and cheddar. Touch of mustard, too. English, naturally. Salsa of tomato, cucumber, spring onions and olives, some coriander, good grind of black pepper and some sea salt. Glass of Merlot. What a dinner!
I've made a sort of hybrid of moussaka and lasagna...
oven roasted some sliced zucchini, eggplant, and really ripe tomatoes. Browned up some ground grass-fed beef with some leftover ground beef & liver, added a couple of heads of garlic (yes, whole heads, cleaned and chopped well in food processor). Added one can of fire-roasted chopped tomatoes & green chilies.
Made a cheese layer of whole milk ricotta, whole milk mozz, 4 eggs, and a huge amount of fresh basil, with a blob of kefir yogurt. Blended it all together. Oh, and a bit of shaved Parmesan.
First layer: roasted eggplant.
Second Layer: ground beef mixture.
Third layer: roasted eggplant
Fourth layer: roasted tomatoes
Fifth layer: roasted zucchini
Sixth layer: cheese layer.
Baked at 325F, covered with foil, for 90 minutes, now browning without the cover. Smells wonderful.
What's for supper? Let's see... we have three things. First off we've got the beef soup, made from REAL bone broth! It has cabbage, carrots, celery, mushrooms and meat I saved from the original broth making process. Spices, it has lemongrass, fresh basil, coriander, cumin and salt and pepper.
Next on the table is curried parsnips in coconut milk. Delicious! They have celery and of course, curry powder.
Last but not least is seared mahi-mahi. It was briefly marinated in lemon juice with salt and pepper then pan fried in coconut oil. Yum!
