Well…today was a cheat meal day…
Breakfast was nice and healthy leftovers from yesterday and boy are those paleo breakfast bars good. After one of those with some extra strawberries and a date or two I got ready to go to the grocery store.
Tonight’s meal was going to be a mix of paleo staples and very non paleo items. While cookin I had just a little shredded rotisserie chicken. So glad that Fry’s sells shredded rotisserie chicken. I would much rather pay the extra and save myself the hassle and mess of shredding my own chicken.
Dinner tonight was started with a couple of appetizers. We had bacon wrapped dates stuffed with almonds (of which I had 2) and yellow peppers stuffed with organic raw cheddar cheese and wrapped in bacon (of which I had 1). The main meal was my zucchini pesto “pasta” with realm pasta on the side. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law were over and they love…Love…the chipotle penne pasta I make. It was inspired by a meal I had at Restaurante Allegria in Napa. It is a chipotle cream sauce with corn, sundried tomatoes, shredded chicken, basil and nitrate free bacon. We paired that with some great rosé wine. This is probably the biggest cheat I’ve had. After dinner…a small slice of banana creme pie – oh my. I also made some paleo cookies I found on paleOMG – one of my favorite blogs ever! I cooked them a little too long and replaced the sun butter with almond butter but even the non-paleo people in the group liked them.
Looking forward to a fun filled WoD tomorrow!
