Linking up with my friend Rachel at In No Simple Language again today for Paleo Menu Monday Vol. II!
It's been 2 weeks since my last link up, so here's what Paleo dishes I've been making lately...
Marinated Sirloin Steak, Butternut Squash, & Roasted Asparagus
This was our Valentine's night meal! I bought the steak from The Meat House and marinated it using a mixture of steak marinades I made from combining marinades 2 & 3 from this list off of Mark's Daily Apple.
I buy the pre-cut (easier!) butternut squash from the produce section, mix it with diced onion (about half of a large onion), then toss it in some EVOO, put it in a glass baking dish, add 3 cut up cloves of fresh garlic, and a few pads of butter. Bake at 425 for about 45-50 mins & voila! So yummy!
For the asparagus, I just drizzle some EVOO over the asparagus on a tinfoil covered cookie sheet, sprinkle with sea salt and roast at 400 for about 25-30 minutes to desired crunchiness. We like it crunchy around here!
Of course Valentine's Day isn't complete without some chocolate!! So I tried this Primal Fudge recipe I found on Pinterest.
We were big fans & I'll definitely be making this fudge again! Because of the coconut oil, there is a hint of a coconut taste. So if you don't like coconut, you might not like these. But we loved them!
I made this with Andrea for Bachelor Monday Night & it was a big hit!! It was Andrea's first time to have spaghetti squash and she is now a fan! Pretty easy, too! I only sprinkled the top with a bit of parm to keep it as Paleo (no dairy!) as possible.
If you've never cooked a spaghetti squash, you can read up on how to here.
These are another Pinterest find! I made them last night with some Cajun Chicken we picked up from The Meat House (can you tell we like that place!? ;)) and B and I both really liked them!
Disclaimer - they do have a little bit (tbsp and a half) of brown sugar, which is not Paleo, but I did include it. It could have easily been left off & I think they would still be delish!!
Another Pinterest success!! We are big fans of breakfast for dinner around here! The girls and I made these for Bachelor Monday Night & I made them again for dinner last night. We made them sans blueberries & served them with some eggs & turkey bacon the first time! Last night, I added the blueberries, same sides. YUM!
Alright, that's all I've got for ya today! What's going on your menu!?
