Lunch and dinner were fairly successful. I've been in a convenience food nightmare for far too long. The salad dressing at lunch came out okay but it came out super oniony from the shallot that went into it. I think I'll add some more orange juice and oil to it in the morning before I head to work.
Dinner was chicken breast wrapped in prosciutto with red chard. The chicken came out dry and the chard came out soggy and it still felt better eating it than some frankenfood garbage. Once I get used to using my new gas stove/oven and cooking whole foods in general I'm sure things will turn out better. Amazingly, despite the lack of awesomeness in my cooking skills, my boys ate everything on their plates! We've been talking a lot about healthful food versus frankenfoods and the effects of corporate farming, GMOs, etc. They are hesitantly on board I sweetened the deal by getting a small package of delicious looking cookies from the healthfood store (that I didn't eat), not primal, but much better than the treats they've eaten in the past. Later when I've had a chance to work out how my body responds to paleo, I'll start making some paleo desserts occasionally. Something to look forward to!
