This past weekend I made my family this wonderful chicken curry dish. It was very delicious and fairly easy to put together. This recipe makes a LOT. In fact, while making it I had to use two big cast-iron skillets to fit all the ingredients. It makes good leftovers though, and it can be frozen for later use. To make this recipe paleo friendly I used cauliflower rice, but regular wild rice or white rice would work as well. (Just be sure to cook it separately before adding it to the chicken and sweet potatoes.)
Although many people consider apple pie to be the traditional American pie, pot pie has actually been around a lot longer! Pot pie was an easy way to make a whole meal out of only a few ingredients. After having my first chicken pot pie a few years ago, I was hooked. Either in the pie shell, or scooped into a bread bowl, I like it both ways! I especially like the following dairy-free chicken pot pie soup recipe. It is easy, delicious, and I can make it up in the morning and do not have to worry about supper for the rest of the day!
As part of a school assignment I had to think of a new stir fry recipe to make for lunch! When I looked up some ideas I saw a lot of recipes that had rice and spaghetti in them. I decided to make my own paleo version of a rice stir fry. Here is my recipe:
half a head of cauliflower
1 pint of canned venison
1 onion (chopped)
1/4 cup of peas
1/4 cup of broccoli
salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
Wash cauliflower and place in blender. Blend until it looks like rice. Sauté onion in a frying pan. Add cauliflower. Wash and cut up the mushrooms and broccoli. Add to frying pan along with the peas. Combine everything together and add the venison and salt/pepper/garlic powder. Let fry for 5-10 minutes. Delicious!
Along with baking this week I have also been watching my eggs as they incubate. It is very exciting and nerve wracking! If I am not concerned about the eggs turning I am concerned about the humidity! I think I am worse then a mother hen!
My incubator keeps the temperature at 99.6 degrees F and I have been monitoring the humidity to keep it at 50-55%. If the humidity gets to high, not enough liquid will evaporate out of the egg which could then drown the chick at hatch time. If the temperature gets to high it could ‘cook’ the embryo. Low temperature is not quite as big of a deal because an embryo can go dormant if it is cool for a prolonged period of time.
By three days of incubation the chick’s nose, lungs, legs, wings, and tail have begun developing. Blood vessels are getting bigger and the heart will start beating soon. Under a microscope the chick’s spinal column would look like a question mark. I will be able to tell which of my eggs are developing at day 10! I can’t wait!
Have a great weekend!
Welcome back readers! This week I am going to share with you a simple fish dinner idea.
Fish Fact: Perch is an excellent source of protein and vitamin B12.
Grain-free Brazilian cheese bread is a great side dish to any fish dinner! Not to mention cheese goes with just about anything. 🙂
Get your veggies in to with beet, radish, and zucchini chips. (With chopped carrots on top.)
Ok I know what your thinking. “?!?” Let me explain. Our family does not like wasting the leftover fish batter, so instead we had the idea to pour it onto a frying pan, the result is a delicious frying pan bread! (Its a Lehr thing.)
Have a great week!
This week I am going to share with you the bomb paleo chili recipe. Its easy to make and tastes wonderful!
2 lbs. of ground meat (I used venison)
1 pint of homemade tomato sauce
4 cups of broth
diced veggies; I used three stalks of celery, two 7” carrots, one medium sized onion, two cloves of garlic, and one leaf of basil.
1 tbs. cocoa powder (yes cocoa powder, just trust me on this one)
1/4 c. chili powder
1 jalapeno pepper (exclude if you want a milder chili)
Pour the broth into a crock pot. Cook one pound of meat at a time and add to the broth. Place the vegetables into a food processer and pulse until their finely shredded. Add the vegetables and the rest of the ingredients to the crock pot and stir well. Turn on high and let it cook for 6 hours. Enjoy!
Enjoy this delicious chili with a roll or homemade crackers! Enjoy your chili!
