    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.

    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.

    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."

    Kina- sea urchin.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    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.
