  • What's for your Easter dinner?

    We are having a locally raised and cured ham cooked in a thyme, white wine, honey glaze, with mashed sweet potatoes and a salad with fresh organic strawberries. So excited! Also here is the beet pickled pink deviled eggs we are having. I posted them on my blog. They are so delicious and beautiful to behold.
    Here is the blog address for the recipe.

    Have a hoppy Easter!!

      I hate you.


      Hubby stayed home from church today b/c he hasn't been feeling well, but when I came home the house smelled of AMAZING, happy piggy! And the dishes were done. I'd like to see Prince Charming in full armor and white steed top that one

        Wasn't a primal Easter for me, went out with my mom for sushi and ice cream.

          King crab legs (with drawn Kerrygold butter), rib eye, green beans cooked with bacon and mashed cauliflower. Delish!!

            We had our Oestra celebration yesterday at my house... and we had BBQ ribs, a big salad, and turnip greens. There were also some potatoes and baked beans for just alittle spoonfull for a taste of (we have cheat meals on the weekends... muscle building/carb loading thing). Who said it has to be ham, deviled eggs, etc...? We save most of our fruit for cheat meal days too... so it was cantaloupe and fresh pineapple for dessert. Once sweets are out of one's life...fruit is candy.

              I am at a lodge on a remote island with some friends - I volunteered to do Easter dinner and it was spectacular, if I do say so myself! Locally raised pastured ham, with a (non-primal) sauce of dijon, marmalade, rum, honey & apple juice, beet greens & chard, creamy leeks, sweet potatoes and roast Yukon Gold potatoes. It was yummy.

                Wasn't a primal meal for me, either; I was visiting friends and don't like to be a picky eater when I'm a guest in someone else's home. Dinner itself wasn't all that un-primal, meat and veggies mostly, but I also had half a roll and a piece of pie, and a few glasses of wine. Oh, well, it's a holiday, back on the horse tomorrow. I think I'm going to be feeling the sugar hangover, though.

                I'm kind of new to this, but I was surprised that when I got home tonight, I was really craving more carbs, even though I'd eaten plenty and shouldn't have been hungry. I've gotten used to not craving much in these past few weeks, it's interesting how quickly your body can freak out from one "bad" meal. I thought about it, though, and realized I hadn't eaten much protein in my dinner, so I had some eggs and felt better.

                  I had Wild Caught lobster tails dipped in Lemon Butter.

                  It was terrible--really!

                  NOT!!!!! ;-)

                      Oooh! Those eggs are so pretty! I'll have to try them out if I get my hands on some beets (it's just not really the season...)

                          Indian food: paneer pilau, chicken marsala, salad with chutney over it, tomato coconut soup, goat ghosht, spinach curry, tandoori chicken, and (so not primal, but so worth it) dumplings in cardamom honey sauce.Sat night was the family dinner- roast leg of lamb, thermonuclear garlic smashed taters, sauted green beans, and a taste of the romanesco white beans with a dessert of strawberries and pineapples and 2 glasses of red during dinner.
                          Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                              I cook just for myself, so I was downright thrilled to find at Whole Foods, on Easter Sunday, a chunk of leg of lamb that weighed just under 2 pounds. It was like they put it there for me.

                              I roasted it with thyme, garlic, and sea salt and ate it with sauteed asparagus and a sweet potato. It was fantastic. There are leftovers.

                              (ETA: Now that I'm buying mostly grass-fed meat, lamb seems surprisingly affordable--at least the kind that comes in big chunks. And while it didn't specify grass-fed, it was from New Zealand, so I'm pretty sure it was. I'm definitely not waiting until next Easter to do this again.)
