“Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.”-- Voltaire
Days this week have been tiresome, trying this new method of eating, trying one recipe and then another with very little satisfaction. As someone who enjoys cooking, it is more than challenging to cook and find my food unsatisfactory.
Tonight's meal was a success, topped with a dessert all seven of us enjoyed -- Paleo Flourless Chocolate Cake (though it did have butter in it, which apparently some paleo eaters eat and some don't). I'd be curious to try it with coconut oil instead of butter, but I am including dairy, so it doesn't bother me. It was soooo chocolatey.
Dinner was Danielle Walker's Greek Burgers, made into little mini slightly flattened meatball/ burgers that we ate like gyros, some of us with pita, some of us with romaine lettuce leaves with tomatoes and tzatziki sauce, Danielle's grilled zucchini salad (in her cookbook Against All Grains, Meals Made Simple), and roasted potatoes. All the family liked the recipes, even those who don't give a fig about paleo eating.
If you have questions about the recipes, leave a comment. I would definitely make this menu again, and I know my family will be asking for this cake again, and again.
