I learned an interesting lesson this month. I have spent the last 18 months looking forward to certain dates, thinking those specific days would bring “the end” to a particular chapter of my life. Specifically, I was counting the days to a court date that I had looming over my head, a doctors appointment for my ankle that I had to wait 7 months for and a few other things. Continue reading
I am constantly complaining about how there are not enough places in Annapolis for paleo people to eat. Well, on Friday night I returned to one that I haven’t been to in over a year and I am happy to say that it was just as good this time as it was the last time I ate there.
I went out for my moms birthday with my sister and a few of my aunts to Level in downtown Annapolis and I left dinner very satisfied. Level is an awesome restaurant that is huge on sourcing their food from local, sustainable resources whenever possible. It is a “small plates” type of restaurant, so we ordered about 8 plates for all of us to share. Continue reading
I know, I know. It’s been days since I’ve posted anything. That whole working full-time and trying to have a social life really gets in the way of blogging. I promise, I have plenty of posts ready for you! I’m pretty embarrassed that my first post after almost a week is a really lame, rhyme-y titled post. Oh well. It is what it is.
So last Friday I went to Whole Foods because I have been dying to get my hands on some Tessemae’s paleo sauces. Imagine my excitement when I got there and not only were they doing samplings of a few of their sauces, but after talking with a brand ambassador I also found out that the company started right near my hometown of Annapolis, Maryland. Luckily for me, they have pretty much every flavor of Tessemae’s at my local Whole Foods. I ended up buying their ketchup, hot sauce (which is what I originally went for) and this super amazing soy ginger dressing. I have to admit, the ketchup is a little sweeter than I prefer and I still need to give the hot sauce another chance, but the soy ginger dressing is amazing. For how much I go through hot sauce, I’m not sure that I would keep buying it, and I don’t use salad dressings very often and when I do I would prefer to have a paleo version, so I will definitely keep the soy ginger in my fridge. I actually can’t wait to try more of their flavors. Continue reading
Artichokes are one of those things that every time I cook them, someone tells me they have never seen whole artichokes cooked, and that they had no idea how to eat them. I blame my French grandmother for my love of whole artichokes. I actually blame her for a lot of my eating and cooking habits.
This is a picture from my ladies night out last night with (from left to right) my sister, my aunt Melissa, my mom and me! Ladies night = alcohol, appetizers and dancing. Dancing is good. The rest? Not so much.
This post came about for a few reasons. 1. I love chicken wings. I almost always try them when I go out to eat. 2. I love salt and I love vinegar. Put them together and I’m pretty much in heaven. 3. Salt and vinegar wings from Buffalo Wild Wings are so damn good, but they are in no way paleo (especially when you get the boneless ones like I tend to, which are breaded). 4. I have been asked about staying paleo when going out to eat and drink, and since that’s exactly what I did last night, the timing seemed appropriate.
