I thought I was out of bacon. I found 2 pounds of pastured bacon from Cherry Grove Farm in the back of my deep freeze. I win.
This week’s meals reflect this monumental discovery. Just call me: The Porcinator.
Notes for the week, in case you’re following along:
Bulk cooking: Meatballs, like last week (I promise, recipe is forthcoming); and an amazing creation – Bacon Bison Butternut “Triple B” Chili – from my compadre George (the Civilized Caveman). It’s the very beginning of Butternut squash season ’round here, so I’m leaping into (nay, wallering* around making snow angels in a big pile of) roasted butternutty deliciousness. George’s bacon-rich recipe is going to get us through the week, as well as fill in any snack/lunch/need-a-fix gaps.
You’ll see I’m not doing too many eggs this week. No particular reason why – it just turned out that way! Check out Easy Paleo’s no-egg breakfast ideas for inspiration on egg alternatives. You’ll also see a VERY yummy Cherry & Blueberry Crumble on the breakfast list from Primal on a Dime. Doesn’t get much better than that!
Greek salad is simple and garden-fresh: tomato, cucumber, EVOO from Kasandrinos Imports, mint, oregano & farm-fade feta. Just like the one I had on our honeymoon! (Although it was called “Sifnos cheese” there.)
That reminds me – I have BIG updates to make to my Garden of Sadness post. More to come!
Days 4 & 5 are Cave Husband on-his-honor, because I’m heading up north to spend a few days with the Razzle-Dazzle D-Sizzle, or – as she’s known to those more sane and less obnoxious than I – Diane Sanfilippo (author of the amazing Practical Paleo) to do some fine-tuning on our Balanced Bites workshops. (Come to one!) I’ll bring Paleo Kits in the car, but other than that, D-sizz is going to take care of the healthy eating. (Didja hear that, Deezer?)
“Because I’m Lazy” are CH’s words, not mine – if they were MY words, they’d say “because you’re the best most cuddly-wuddly Cave Husband EVER and I will smooch your smoochy face off.” Which is neither here nor there.

If you have any ideas, favorites, or weekly staples, post them to comments! I’m always looking for new ideas.

*”wallering” is an expression from my childhood. It means flopping around like a catfish, which are also known as “wallers.” What.
