Paleo Party for 10

It was a Paleo Party!  On Halloween evening we fed a party of 10 – 6 adults and 4 kids – an amazing paleo feast.  John grilled sirloin and hamburgers seasoned with sea salt, pepper, and a grill seasoning mix from Trader Joe’s (find with the rest of the spices across from the nuts).  He also grilled chicken legs seasoned with a little sea salt, pepper, and fresh lemon juice, as well as bell peppers and eggplant basted with olive oil.  The salad was a lettuce mix from the farmers market, chopped apples, sundried tomatoes, slivered almonds, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and topped with crumbled goat cheese.  I made a butternut squash “mash”.  I pressure cooked the squash for 12 minutes mashed it with organic butter, sea salt, cinnamon, and a pinch of ground ginger.  We also served cold shrimp with lemon and cocktail sauce.  Our not-so-paleo visiting family didn’t even look around for the missing french bread!  Mission accomplished. : )

    I am new to your blog and so I love it! I do want to know if you made your own cocktail sauce, if so would you please post the recipe?

      Hi Addie, so glad you like the blog! I did not make my own cocktail sauce. Just the sauce from Trader Joe’s… I have made my own tarter sauce in the past that is just mayo, diced up dill pickles, and a touch of whatever hot sauce you have. It’s good on shrimp or any seafood if you like a little kick!

      Hi CF, yes, dairy should typically be avoided. I made this meal for a party so we added in some extras. Life’s too short to never have a little cheese!
