Meeting PALEOMG! & Steak Tips!

So…. today when I was walking into work I was doing my everyday routine of picking dog hair off my sweater and boom what do I find? a pink thong from the wash stuck to the side of my sweater. Great way to start the day, hey at least it was clean I guess.

I have officially purchased a domain name and once I figure out how to design a killer website this yittle blog will become legit. I figure enough people don’t absolutely hate to read my rants so I mineswell make it official! Also, I will be featuring some exciting guest posts coming soon so if your already sick of hearing from me then you’ll totally love the next blog post!

Anyways, on to my exciting weekend, I attended a cooking class with Juli of Paleomg!! She’s my favorite paleo blogger and shes quirky and makes great food, whats not to love? We made some pancakes and took some pictures and I loved every minute of it! Did I mention I want to be her one day? A girl can dream right?

As a treat since its almost Halloween I’m going to share a recipe that literally has nothing to do with Halloween because no matter what treat I post your still going to get hyfee on store bought deliciousness like butterfingers and laffy taffy. Those may or may not be what I bought for the trick-or-treater’s and have already partially consumed. #faileo

I swear some day soon I’ll get better at taking pictures that look appetizing I usually just attack the food right after its done so getting any picture at all is an accomplishment.

Tis’ the Season for Caramel Apple Pancakes!

Although I am a pancake advocate I’m not as much an enthusiast as Pete, who has informed me that I should be writing for the masses and introduce him properly on my blog. So for the .5% of people who read this and aren’t familiar with my life, Pete is my boyfriend who is a full time crossfit trainer at OSCF/ part time pancake whore. He is coaching our gym paleo challenge and decided to also participate so he can feel our pain which makes my life a bit easier and less tempting. His only complaint is lack of pancakes so Sunday I constructed these fine specimens from PALEOMG and was pretty delighted at the results. They were a little sweet for me so I only had half my stack but they didn’t go to waste because they were happily consumed by Pete as his dinner. The “caramel” used on this was amazzzzing and totally going to be used to make another great fall recipe for our tailgate on Sunday. I will post the recipe to that monday-ish, I am pretty excited and came up with this idea on my own for once, I know crazy right!? You didn’t even know I had it in me but BOOM it’ll blow your mind.

Caramel Apple Pancakes Recipe

Speaking of blowing your mind yesterday we were spiraling some noodles for zucchini pasta and Pete decided to spiral a sweet potato, sounds innocent enough right? WELL then he put it in oven and baked and crisped those babies up with a little avocado oil and holllly good god they were beyond good, think curly fries soft yet crunchy. I managed to snap a picture before we devoured them but they did not last long and I pretty much know I need them in my life for at least the next 3-6 days…. cue me just disappearing and people finding me in a pile of curly sweet potatoes just growling ¬†at anyone that comes near me…. its all together too possible.
