My Paleo Plate-12/01/11

Hello Loyal Readers!  Before I get on with showing you what I ate yesterday, I wanted to let you know that with the holiday season and all that entails, I am finding it nigh unto impossible to post daily to my blog.  I don’t think that I have run out of things to say yet.  I’m just having some issues with doing everything I want to do.

My new target is three posts a week.  I’ll try to be FABULOUS and fascinating.  Some days that’s a real stretch for me, especially around the holidays (Bah!  Humbug!)  TMOTH is Cindy Lou Who and I am The Grinch when it comes to the holiday season.  I suspect the shorter photo period has some influence on this.

Without further ado, here’s My Paleo Plate for the last day of November 2011:

Just as a reminder, here’s the Paleo version of the My Plate icon courtesy of the folks at Fitbomb:

For breakfast today I had a CSA Omelet.  Here’s a photo of the inside before I folded it.

The omelet is a western style omelet with green bell peppers and onions cooked into the egg.  It’s filled with mixed field greens, bacon and trumpet mushrooms from the CSA box.  It was FABULOUS!

Lunch at my desk was comprised of a medley of leftovers.  I had Roasted Root Vegetables, featuring beets from the CSA box.  There was also Lemon Chicken from Tara Firma Farm and Beef Cross Rib Steak from the John Ford Ranch.  I used my homemade garlic-rosemary mayonnaise as a sauce for the beef.  I am drooling just remembering…

Dinner was a creation that I will call Harvest Medley Soup.  I sautéed some onions and ½ pound of sausage I had leftover in a large soup pot.  I added the broth I made from the turkey carcass along with the meat that came off the carcass.  I brought that to a boil and added pumpkin puree (leftover from the puree I made for my pies), trumpet mushrooms and white mushrooms.  I seasoned with 2 TBS Curry Powder, 1 TBS Cinnamon and a sprinkle of Cayenne Pepper.  I let it simmer for about an hour and then stirred in 1 cup of coconut milk.  I let it heat for 5 more minutes and then TMOTH and I fell on the food like ravenous beasts sat down to dinner.
