Weekly Menu Featuring CSA Basket 1

We have had such a wonderful Sunday y’all. Full of waffles, laughs, and rest. Of course some cleaning/laundry and cooking too πŸ˜‰

But we did squeeze in a walk downtown… Post yard work. It felt great outside! A restful day was perfect to top off a full week! Oh I even got to partner up with David for our Saturday team WOD… This past week of WODs were tough. Everyone is doing so good at Crossfit Candor!

I do want to share a couple of recipes I tried out this weekend. Both were winners y’all… And I’m not surprised. I mean I got them from Heather at Multiply Delicious and George at Civilized Caveman Cooking πŸ˜‰

Waffles… I used Multiply Delicious Apple Coconut Waffle recipe but subbed a peach (for the apple) and coconut sugar (for the honey). We didn’t have maple syrup so we used farm fresh butter and preserves πŸ˜‰

This weekend we also had Civilized Caveman’s Simple Short Ribs.

I didn’t have curry powder or chili pepper– so I used chipotle chili pepper. Also instead of red wine vinegar, I used red wine. I had some nice organic wine leftover. Exactly half a cup so it worked! I’m sure the curry would add a whole new flavor– I’m buying some at the store this week!

We served the short ribs with pan sautΓ©ed potatoes for dinner. Then I threw the leftovers and the “gravy” in with some wilted greens today. It made a nice short rib stew… That was cozy in a bowl y’all!

And we even got a third meal out of this crockpot winner… We saved the veggies to top our burgers tonight! Served also with sweet potato chips (first time frying them– been into plantains lately though!), arugula, chipotle paleo mayo, avocado, and kraut. Yummy! It has been a delicious weekend. And Bama won– roll tide!

Equally exciting– my diploma arrived! Yah! I really didn’t dream that I got a master’s. Haha!

I got “paleo mail” too πŸ™‚ Paleo Happy Hour by Kelly at the Paleo Girl’s Kitchen!

Okay so we better hop to the meal plan… Being back in the swing of Crossfit again has left me really appreciating these meal plans y’all. If you’re new to planning… Pick a couple of days to plan to get the feel of it πŸ™‚ You can do it… No matter how busy! I promise– I’ll be cheering ya on the whole way. And don’t forget– I’ve been posting my paleo meals since about January. So dig around the blog to find inspiration and links to “Cookin’ Up Life” approved meals!

It is such a happy feeling to get a WOD in at 5:30am and know that dinner is planned for that evening. Whew πŸ˜‰ About 2-3 days a week I’ll be doing 5:30am– really liking it. Around 11am you forget you’ve even worked out already πŸ˜‰
