Meat Tac Toe

Meat, meat, meat.

Meat, meat, meat.

Tic tac toe. Three meaty hits in row. Meat + no grains = flat BG like whoa.

Even had desserts (small, dull like this or this.) Bigfoot find if give up elaborate baking, offer only tiny boring desserts, expectations very low, children happy any whisper ice cream-ish novelty.

Despite intense interactions mano-a-dead flesh, all dinners very easy. Yay. Feel like could just repeat these three forever. But tomorrow: Sockeye.


Wings from Everyday Paleo Family CookbookRhode Island edition: get very inexpensive chicken wings from Persimmon Provisions. (Are they selling these as dog food? They were near the handmade dog food.) Marinate in one 4 oz. apple Juicy Juice box from hypo department of diabetes supply pantry + minced garlic + grated ginger + coconut aminos or Bragg’s + sesame oil. Roast at 400F 30+ minutes. Real recipe available here. Or in book, durrrrr.

I still like that song

I still like that song

Menu: wings + broccoli-kale-cheddar soup pretty much like this but with added kale/ax the potato + watermelon.


Oven ribs from Kitchn. And sauce from Kitchn. (Both contain brown sugar galore. Probably most sauce not ingested because drips off? Guess-tally sauce carbs as per ketchup, 5g per T.)

Menu: ribs + ratatouille + watermelon.

Ratatouille recipe: in a wide dutch oven or other heavy pot with a lid, cook a bunch of onions and garlic in olive oil. Add a bunch of sliced zucchini, eggplants, and peppers and a lot of chopped tomatoes and basil. Cook this all until it becomes totally collapsed and silky. Serve at room temperature, ideally with baguettes, goat cheese, and no diabetes.


Chicken cordon bleu like Bigfoot mom make in 1980’s but paleo (almond flour instead of bread crumbs) but faux paleo because cheese. Anyway, zero carbs. This recipe, but skipped asparagus because it’s September.

Menu: Chicken C. Bleu, green beans, watermelon.

Green beans recipe: in a giant skillet, sizzle a heap of green beans in a big glug of olive oil. Toss around until they’re glossy and maybe brown in a few spots. Throw on 1/4 c water, cover, and simmer for a few minutes. Sprinkle with flaky salt. Continue to cook, uncovered, until the water is mostly gone. We like these burning hot, cold, whatever. Green beans are probably not paleo. I’m losing interest in worrying about that.



Jack’s menu: pink grapefruits, smoked salmon, bagels, capers, cream cheese, tiny bacon quiches

Tiny bacon quiches recipe: beat 4 large eggs. Add 1 cup cottage cheese, 4 or more (chopped up) slices of Trader Joe’s precooked bacon, 1/4 t salt, 1/2 t baking powder, 1/4 c almond flour, 2T melted butter, and a handful of shredded cheddar cheese. Spoon this mixture into a buttered mini muffin pan. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until puffed up and golden brown on top. Bubs set three aside for his lunchbox, and he only ever eats peanut butter sandwiches at school. It was the crowning achievement of the day; this is not sarcasm.

The total carbs are 10 from the cottage cheese and a few from the almond flour. This made 24 tiny quiches of approx 0.5g CHO each.

    sometimes you make me want to eat meat.

      i don’t imagine this was one of those times. wings and ribs are super gaggy, because the bones make them such recognizable body parts.

        I agree! I eat meat, but stay away from things I have to gnaw off of a bone. I also avoid shrimp and lobster and crabs, because I don’t like having to dismantle exoskeletons to get to my food.

    Yum!!! I’m totally making broccoli soup on Thursday (with kale because I love kale). And yes, as a confirmed meat eater and a picky vegetable eater I am thrilled that the recipe from this post that interests me the most is the broccoli soup. 🙂
