  • Be brave. Liver pate is awesome. I make up a whole batch and then freeze it in single-serving yoghurt pots for work lunches.
    I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

    • i have some ground venison and venison heart in the fridge right now that has some horopito and garlic minced into it. i was gonna make sausages but i was thinking meat loaf instead or even meatza. i've been nibbling at it raw which is quite nice. i got given a couple of decent sized abalone today as some of the guys went out. and i got another couple of kina myself on my low tide snorkel so back to too many choices of what to eat!

      just do it ayla. if you eat meat, you can eat liver. it is actual the best bit. slice it up thinly and medium rare fry it in butter with some garlic and some thyme. whizz it in the blender with more melted butter, some cream and some bourbon or brandy if you have it. put some salt and pepper in. let it get completely cold in the fridge and then eat it. totally changes the taste. and it is then super yummy.

          My butcher minced up lambs fry with chicken breast and thigh for my pets. Plus ive given them some of the liver whole, and they seemed to like it.
          I think maybe I could do a meatloaf like yours if the bits are already minced up. I am working up to it
          Ask the pets if they would mind sharing. That sound good.

          Works for a quick breakfast too. Or one of those, I just can't face cooking tonight evenings. Some pate' and some cheese. Good to go.

          The mince makes good meatballs too. Sherry also works well in the pate'.

          • yeah i am not a big fan of sausages which is why i didnt quite get around to making them. meatballs dont you usually need sauce? i so never make them and the kids dont like burgers. i did find a mini meat loaf recipe which wraps them in streaky bacon this morning so i may try something like that. i def like mince with hearts minced in.

            good tip about the single serving yoghurt pots btw. school is back monday so i will be generating some.

            • Someone posted the other day on a thread about quail eggs about making "Scotch Eggs" with quail eggs in the middle. That is my next project.

              As for sauce, that falls under the "condiment veggies" heading. When I don't feel like making my own, I use Wolfgang Puck's sauces. One of the few brands in a jar that doesn't have any chemicals, sugar, or bad oils.

              • I really enjoy this thread PB, you are always a delight to read.

                I do enjoy vegetables sometimes, but more often than not I am eating them because I feel like I should. It's often held up in the paleo/primal communities that "our plate is mostly veggies and only some meat, see?!" as a way to placate the CW masses and make them realize that paleo is not that evil after all.

                A couple times this week I found myself eating the delicious slow cooker pork I had made. Literally nothing but pork, garlic, and salt. I ate it sometimes microwaved and soft, sometimes fried crispy in my cast iron skillet. Sometimes with several pastured eggs (is there any more heavenly combo than crispy pork and eggs??) I had steamed or roasted veggies available but at some times I just didn't want it. So I ate my big ass pork piles and felt sated but also a little guilty I hadn't had "balance" on my plate and stuff.

                Also I ate a 5lb pork roast in about 4 days, for which many heaps of judgement were distributed upon me by roomies and co-workers. "You bought a 5 lb roast just for you....???"

                The fact of things is, there are very few veggies I actually like. Broccoli and carrots, mushrooms, garlic, tomato sauce or salsa of every possible variety - yes yes yes. Kale? Squash? Cabbage? Yeach, no thanks! But even I get bored of the veggies I do love, and the idea of just not eating them if I don't feel like it is intensely liberating.
                yay!

                • scotch eggs are nice if you just do them with meat on the outside. i cant easily get quails eggs but i do like them. just went for a little snorkel around as it is so warm. i found a kina so i made the kids go down and get it for diving practise which was very funny. took them ages as you always float back up real easy if you dont have a weight belt on. i smashed it on the rocks and ate it raw which i reckon is the best way to eat kina myself. nice snack. as to sauce, i am not aversed to it but we dont ever eat meatballs so i was having to think how we would. co-incidentally i did find a recipe for meatballs yesterday which had a dipping sauce made with cream cheese and feta that i reckon could be adapted so i may try that.

                  • you will have to post that recipe Seas - I think that scotch eggs would be a nice idea for a mobile snack !!!!, and the dipping sauce........hmmmmmmm I think I need to buy Marks other book.
                    lamb chops for dinner. Bring it on !!!!!

                    • Lamb and oregano meatballs with creamy fetta dipping sauce it's not primal but incredibly easy to make so with a bit of tweaking. i have found too that you can make dipping sauce by melting pesto and cream together. you could use cultured cream too but i didnt have any. my lamb chops are languising in the fridge. lunch tomorrow maybe. or i will freeze them and worry about it next week when i have made a dent in the kai moana and the venison situation. lamb chops and pesto are nice too so you could prob do the pesto cream sauce with mint instead of basil for them. now that is a thought! scotch eggs are good in packed lunches. in fact i need to go weaving for the day sunday so i may just do that with the rest of my minced trout muscle off the venison and the venison heart mince.

                          Exactly. I think there is a reason why it is always a battle to get kids to eat their veggies. Kids are very intuitive and very honest about these things.

                          There is a scene in The Gnoll Credo where Gryka the gnoll takes a can of the anthropologist's beef stew and just pops it is her mouth and then spits out the can in pieces. Her comment was, "Too many vegetables. I go hunt now for food."

                              Good stuff. There is a booth at the Farmer's Market that sells urchin and freshly shucked oysters. I love that place.

                              I can see how anyone trying to do an all carnivorous diet who did not include any seafood could also get themselves into nutritional deficit troubles.
