The other night:
[B]Mustard-Cream Pork Tenderloin[/B]
1. Seared a 1.5 lb pork tenderloin in butter in my cast iron skillet. Both sides, about 5-7 minutes each until I had a golden crust. Sprinkled with salt and seasoning as it cooked. Removed the tenderloin from the pan and put it in a medium-small casserole with a lid and lidded it up. Popped in a pre-heated oven at 325-350 F.
2. Added chopped shallots, onions, and garlic to the pan. Scraped up the caramelized bits. Waited for that stuff to soften, then added one chopped celery stalk and one chopped carrot. Didn't give this long to cook as I like my carrot-celery chunks crunchy. Seasoned as I went.
3. Added 1/3 cup whole-grain mustard and 1/3 cup heavy cream to pan. Reduced heat. Stirred to incorporate. Added to the casserole in the empty spaces where the tenderloin wasn't. Kind of like a reverse-nestle.
4. Cooked the tenderloin in total 25 minutes. This left it slightly pink. Would have cooked longer if this worried us.
5. Removed from oven, and gave the mustard sauce another stir to incorporate the juices the tenderloin had released as it cooked.
6. Sliced the tenderloin, adding back juices to the sauce as I went, and put slices on a plate. Topped with sauce. Served with salad. Delish. And enough leftovers for lunch today. :)
1/2lb of bacon fried a little under cooked, 5 eggs lightly scrambled with fresh picked chives and about 2oz of cheese. One cup of coffee with plenty of heavy cream and a bit of raw honey. Skipped B-fast so this is lunch.
Big A$$ salad, kale, almonds, sardines, red meat, eggs, butter, chocolate, wine.

Awesome. Bon appetit.
I just had my first avocado. It was really good - creamy, but a little bland...nothing some garlic couldn't remedy, though. I'm also munching on some fresh berries - blue and black.
two boiled eggs two slices of smoked salmon, milkshake made with Kefir, yoghurt, berries and coconut milk
pork leg & salad followed by pecan nuts, coconut oil, dessicated coconut, dates (just fancied something sweet)

Like the milkshake!! Add a little stevia, will taste like candy.
Just decided on a fast-breaking dinner for tomorrow:
Wild-caught shrimp, sauteed in coconut oil & butter, probably with some cayenne & garlic
Grape Tomatoes - haven't decided if they should get sauteed too or be raw
Pastured egg yolks, fried/sauteed on the outsides, gooey in the middle
Over a large bed of raw spinach.
I am a very simple eater most times when left to my own devices, I can cook as well or better than most given the need but I generally cant be bothered.
Breakfast is most days a cup of Coffee and blueberries while walking the dog though I frequently skip breakfast all together but for the coffee.
lunch is a big ass mixed salad with a dressing of olive oil and franks hot sauce and topped with a large steak sized amount of some lean meat, fish, something.
Snack is a 1/4 cup of mixed nuts/seeds and an apple.
Supper is often a veggie stir fry my wife makes and I grill some chicken or salmon or squirrel if they have been improvident.
