Caldo De Res and Introducing Massa Natural Meats!!

Caldo de Res 2

A few months ago I posted on my Facebook page, a picture of our freezer full of grass fed beef and many of you wanted to know who my “supplier” was!  I was eager to fill you all in on my secret but the awesome little company that I had purchased my beef from was only selling locally at the time. Now for the good news – my little local supplier is shipping their amazing beef nationwide!  I am happy to introduce Massa Natural Meats, offering pasture raised beef from start to finish and I must say that their product is by far one of the highest quality and most amazing tasting beef I have ever eaten. I also appreciate that you can order either by the cut OR you can have them custom butcher and send to you your choice of an 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, or a whole cow! Finally, Massa Natural Meats will soon be offering all natural, pasture raised, heritage pork and grass-fed lamb!  Please visit Massa Natural Meats to see all that they have to offer and let me know what you think of their product! I’m sure you will be impressed.

Now on to the recipe!!

Beyond Easy Pulled Pork

Pulled Pork - Everyday Paleo

Someone asked me on my Facebook page to post more slow cooker recipes which was quite coincidental because yesterday, as I was reading that particular post, I was unpacking a giant pork roast that I intended to make into pulled pork.  This is about the easiest meal a person could make and so versatile.  This morning we ate the pulled pork with eggs and tonight I’ll make some Purple Cabbage Slaw to eat along with the pork and I’ll maybe even make a salad out of it for lunch tomorrow; if there is any left (which I doubt there will be….)

Holiday Brussels Sprouts and Garlic Roasted Sweet Potatoes

I have several holiday recipes on the blog that you can find here, here, and here; but what’s wrong with a couple more!  My family and I will be traveling to visit my wonderful in-laws for Thanksgiving, so I thought I would come up with two fun side dishes that I can make and share while we are there.  Both are scrumptious and I’m looking forward to making both again in just a few days!

First of all, I must extend enormous amounts of gratitude towards Jason, Katie, and Dean who have been submitting excellent articles for Everyday Paleo in order to keep this boat afloat! Also a HUGE thank you to Dain who is back in action and helping to run things. It’s important to note that without Dain, there simply would not even be a boat – so thank you Dain, thank you, thank you, thank you….

Easy Skillet Rosemary Chicken, Pecan Basil Parsley Pesto and more…

Sometimes crazy summer days lead to late night hectic dinners and last night the sun was setting as we sat down to eat.  Although the food was delicious, the actual experience ended up being more of a fiasco then a relaxing evening together.  I suppose that’s what I get for trying to have meal time at bed time but despite the hiccups like Jaden dumping his entire plate onto his lap and Rowan suddenly deciding that he no longer likes chicken, or zucchini, or eggplant, or anything at all really, we all eventually filled our bellies and gratefully crawled into bed.

Everyday Paleo “No Potato” Salad

"No Potato" Salad

As mentioned on my Facebook page, we have been busy all weekend celebrating my dad’s 70th birthday!  My sister, brother-in-law, and my sweet little niece came to visit along with my brother and of course my dad and his wonderful wife Sandy.  This weekend was dedicated to my dad and filled with precious moments spent with my family.  We all did a lot of laughing, a little bit of crying, and a whole bunch of hugging and I slept soundly at night with a house filled with the ones that make my little corner of the universe bright. I am grateful to have a family that I hold so dear to my heart and trust me; I know how lucky I am. [Read more...]

Homemade Paleo Mayo Cooking Demo!!

Finally, a post about food!!  Hurray hurray, jump up and down but don’t get too excited because this post is a lesson – a very important paleo mayonnaise lesson and one that is worth learning for those folks who figured that their creamy white blissful days of mayo were over after hopping on the paleo wagon. Most decent tasting mayonnaise options that you’ll find in the market are made with soybean oil and really should be avoided because soybean oil is only good for, well, nothing that I can think of… [Read more...]
