The farmer’s market was closed today, but the wonderful lady that I buy my meat from was kind enough to take my order by phone and deliver! How cool is that? I was nearly out of ground beef and the puppies have to eat. And I know it sounds crazy, but I can’t bring myself to feed them anything I wouldn’t eat. So only grass-fed/pastured for my four-legged children! The beef liver is much cheaper (and chock full of nutrients!) so I take a pound each of liver (and today it was on special buy-one-get-one-free!) and ground beef and mix it together for my furry babies. At least the puppies love it. I’ve finally gotten my chihuahua to eat mostly paleo, but she turns her nose up at raw food. I ask you, Queen Bianca, where is the wolf within?
“I am a higher being, you simpering human. Now roast me some sausages and feed them to me with those ridiculous looking digits on your paws.”
And sausages were on the menu today since I was making the homemade Jambalaya recipe from Robb Wolf’s “The Paleo Solution”. It was indescribably good! The recipe makes a ton so I’ll be getting at least five meals out of it. I saved a couple of bowls in the fridge for this week and froze the rest. I also put a hunk of ham in the crock pot to cook all day. It should be ready…oh, right about now. I’ll be having some slices of that deliciousness with eggs around lunchtime tomorrow.
Andouille sausage and spicy shrimp – what’s not to love?!
So I spent the day peeling, chopping, prepping, and cooking and was feeling pretty darned good about what I had managed to get done. I even fit in a little snow “workout” by hauling the christmas tree back to the shed along with the many boxes of doodads necessary to trim the thing. I broke a little sweat and only fell once. I did end up with snow in the pocket of my sweater, but managed to retrieve my phone before any damage was done. This should have been my warning sign – sharp curve ahead. Word to the wise – when you’re feeling ahead of the game – STOP! I’ve never been able to do this. I may have a slow starter, but once in motion I am unstoppable. Well, until I head over the cliff, of course. The cliff always wins.
So after all that hard work, I sat down at my computer and thought I would relax and mess around online. My mistake was saying to myself, “Hm, maybe I should change the layout of my blog.” I’ve spent the last two hours trying to fix everything. Ugh. But hey, at least I got a post in! “Silver lining” – check.
