Sunday Line-up

So last week we were out of town and I therefore spent my Sunday wondering why we take road trips with small children frolicking in the snow with my family (post regarding staying paleo on the road coming soon :) ).

Today I made up for it by making these bad boys:

*hard-boiled eggs

*soaked and dried almonds and walnuts

*veggie soup

*homemade ground beef jerky

*chicken drumsticks

*nut butter balls (I am totally addicted to these things YUMMERS)

The Sunday Line-Up

Hello Friends,

As some of you know, I spend most of my Sundays preparing food for the week ahead.  I love to cook.  Although, admittedly, sometimes all this work seems like a chore, the gratifying end result is totally worth all the effort.  I love opening the fridge to find all the fresh, yummy, healthy, made-from-scratch food I lovingly made for my family.  Plus, those few extra hours in the kitchen pay off when I don't even have to think about most meals and snacks the coming week.

And I thank my husband for supporting and encouraging my efforts :)

So, with all that said, I'm going to post my Sunday kitchen happenings right here.  Lately I've been feeling kind of turned-off to blogging - not to other bloggers ( I looooove lurking and visiting other blogs for inspiration :), but for some reason I sometimes feel like "Look at me!  I'm sooo special!"  But I figured I may take my own efforts for granted sometimes and realized, hey, I am special, and maybe some of my ideas just might inspire others :)

Thank you for visiting my humble little blog, sweet followers :)

This week:

* Kale chips

* Hard-boiled eggs

* Paleo Sweet Potato bread

* Homemade jello

* Veggie soup (Nourishing Traditions homemade chicken broth, or lately I've been lazy and have been using Imagine organic free range chicken broth - three boxes, two cloves garlic, one onion, two red bell peppers, five zucchinis, seven carrots, one bunch kale, one bunch spinach, one head cabbage, three sticks celery) (This soup is awesome.  For some reason, my whole family loves it and asks for it all the time.  It's a great little side to go with lunch or dinner during the week and a great way to get tons of veggies in your kiddos!)

* Nut Butter Balls

* Grain-free biscuits (from this book) (to go with veggie soup)
