Foodie Friday: What I Ate This Weekend

Between a paleo potluck brunch and my own weekly cookup this week, I got down to some feasting this weekend! Steak salad, bora bora fireballs (pork meatballs), damn fine chicken, mango chicken, cauliflower rice, kale and bacon saute, butternut squash soup, blueberry muffins, coconut bread, paleo nutella, roast blueberries…oh my!
Okay, I guess I have to share some of the recipes I used for my weekend feasting now.
Sweet, spicy, porky. My paleo wondertwin, Hallie, makes these like a boss. And sunshine sauce goes on pretty much anything.
Yes, fish sauce is an ingredient. No, it is not scary. It’s a salty-savory flavor that makes this dish (and the next one, too) taste great. Here’s the brand I use: http://www.amazon.com/Red-Boat-Fish-Sauce-40%C2%B0N/dp/B004M050W2
I didn’t have any mushrooms or cilantro, so I guess I cheated this recipe a bit, but it still came out great! The recipe calls for one pound of chicken, so I tripled it for plenty of leftovers.
Sound boring to you? Do you think I felt like I was missing something? Heck no! You, too, can eat like a champ. So go sign up for our paleo challenge! https://www.lurongliving.com/challenge2013/register-athlete
