3 yards of fabric or insurance And property tax bills for the month, lol. Definitely take your lunch!

I totally made a mistake. I thought I could cook a picnic roast like a chicken, an hour in the dutch oven. Turns out it takes 3+ hrs Tongue. Burgers tonight, lol.I have some and buns in the fridge and just bought ketchup so at least it all works out...

Oh no! There was free food at work again, organic chicken stock that had reached it's best-before date. Now I have So much stock and the freezer is already full of discounted meat! Oh man. I need a chest freezer to do any meal anything, let alone planning! Girls, working in grocery makes food things a crazy mess. I can't complain because, hey, free food but... it is hard to get organized.
Here's a link to grain-free veggie burgers that looks interesting:

And chips, because you'd better plan some treats too or you know what'll happen Cheesy http://www.cosmopolitan.com/food/easy-recipes/chip-recipes

I Love spicy but the kids are so not fans so I've got to add it to only my portion. Oh well.

Always, the woman who wrote the book about "complete proteins" later recanted but it's still believed by so many. I have studied and worked in the field of nutrition for about 25 years including management of a sprout farm and raw food resource centre so, lol, I am well versed in all things "protein". It's not as essential to consume large quantities of protein dominant foods as it is to have a variety of whole foods regularly. Sprouts are great, whole grains, beans and legumes, leafy greens, avocado, olives, etc. We don't actually understand an awful lot about the nutrients in food, phyto-nutrients are a fairly recent discovery even! I can't recommend the books of Micheal Pollan enough, particularly this one:

We grew up mostly vegetarian (mom married a carnivore for a few years but aside from that, all veg all the time) but even so, we're very careful to minimize soy in favour of whole grains, beans, cheese and eggs for protein. We recently started to incorporate small portions of organic pastured meat (I figured feeding my kids actual food was better than having to supplement iron, B12, taurine, methionine, etc etc etc Tongue) but it's a small amount, we eat lots of plant sources of protein.

ETA ooh, best roast chicken dinner Evar! I bought some pre-chopped slaw (just cabbage and carrot) from the market and stirred it in with the onion, shallot, celery, carrot, parsnip, white and purple potato mix in the bottom of the dutch oven. A little salt, some thyme sprigs, the chicken (breast down) with a bit of oil poured over and some more salt. Oh man... the slaw disappeared into a delicious carmelized mash on the bottom of the pan SO GOOD!
I'm thinking this is going to be our regular Saturday night dinner. I have that day off and spend it with the kids at the market anyhow. Might as well. My first planned meal, woo hoo! Ok, or another roast but roast for sure on that night from now on. It'll make nice soup for the rest of the week, whatever it is.

I'm going to make a chicken! It's my standard dutch oven arrangement: onions, celery, root veggies, brussel sprouts (because we ALL love them here) with thyme and wine or beer at 450F for an hour. I love that dutch oven. The left overs go in the crock pot for bone broth. I have to go out for the root veggies and the beer/wine though, lol. I am very much less than organized at the moment...

That's a great site Always! I have exactly that spiralizer too, ha.

Today at work we cleared the freezer, that means I got organic free range pastured meats for half off. I brought home a Big box full, had to clear out my freezer. Now I'll have to clean out the fridge to fit a few things to defrost for meals next week. That's a solid box of meat in there right now for Such a great price, wow.
