I have some important news today from the BLACK COFFEE front. Today... I can hardly write it. Today... I put coconut milk in my coffee. GAAAH. I knew this day would come. I just wanted to know if it would make black coffee taste any better. And I got my answer: not really. It didn't taste like coconut. It still tasted pretty much like black coffee, just a little better mouthfeel. Only a little.
|Breakfast: Sausage, sweet potatoes, tea|
|Coconut milk in my coffee! I had to capture the moment.|
|Paleo sushi for lunch|
|My sushi was smoked salmon, blanched carrot, orange pepper, and lots of avocado. Plus wasabi.|
|Apple snack while driving.|
|Here's a shot of the roots I prepped. We ate the parsnips & carrots.|
|Parsnip cake for dinner. I had 3.|
For dinner I made another version of my Parsnip Cakes. This time I used the whole parsnips, plus yellow and purple carrots (instead of just the leftovers from milling parsnip puree). I milled them and just put everything together again afterward. Then I added half a chopped red onion, half a chopped jalapeno, a small amount of chopped ginger, salt, pepper, coconut aminos, and about 10 cooked shrimp that I snipped up with kitchen shears. I fried them in coconut oil for about 5 minutes per side--the idea is to sear them so they'll stay somewhat intact. (They are pretty mushy.) My eating partner was pleasantly surprised by this combo. Using coconut aminos instead of soy sauce was not bad.
OK, my nose is starting to run, I'm off to bed. Hoping to whup this thing in the night! Stay well and HAPPY FALL!
