Party Time!! Paleo Way??

Thursday, May 16, 2013

So...... I am having a dinner and friends over and I am going to surprise them with an all Paleo dinner! well..... this should be interesting~~~ also I am trying out some new ideas for recipes....

Here is my menu for Saturday night:

Appetizer: Vegetable Crudites with Newman's Olive Oil Dressing

Salad: Farm Fresh Organic Greens with Roma Tomato and Zero Carb Dressing

Entree: Marinated Fresh Herb Roasted Chicken

Side 1 : Cauliflower Bake with Sliced Almonds

Side 2: Stir Fried Farm Fresh Veggies

Dessert: Fresh Fruit Salad with Macadamia Nut Topping

Well......... how does that sound???? It sounds DELISH to me, but 2 of the guys are diabetic like me and one is not and they all pretty much eat anything, this should be interesting. I am hoping the cauliflower bake will confuse them to think they are getting some 'white' food. But without bread or sugary dessert I may have a fiasco on my hands.

Do I care? Not really. I am cooking for myself and since we take turns every month visiting each others homes for dinner and guitar jam, they can take what they get I suppose!!!

No one ever accused me of being that co-dependent anyway.

I need to be able to have dinner parties that do not upset me and this is what I am going to do for Saturday. Luckily my hubby will help me prep some things tomorrow so I can save the fresh stir fry til last, ohhhhhhh its going to be goooooooooood!

  Have you tried simple roasted cauliflower? I use a "basting oil" made by Wegmans a grocery chain in the northeast. It has grapeseed oil, garlic, thyme, salt and parsley. Toss cauliflower in it, bake at like 350 until browned, delcious!! To the vegetable tray I might add a meat, like applegate salami or pepperoni. Looks good to me otherwise!

    For the cauliflower bake I am going to first steam the flowers alot and then let them cool for ease of handling.
Then mash them up like mashed potatoes, add a T of garlic flavored olive oil plus
more diced garlic, sauteed onions, fresh herbs from my window sill (basil, thyme, rosemary and a bit of oregano) add pepper and sliced almonds and mix it together.

Rebake for 30 minutes before serving and top with the sliced almonds...... All strict paleo so I can eat it too.
Basically I figure the cauliflower will take up the flavors of the herbs and garlic and onion and taste pretty darn yummy. Maybe I will add it to my paleo power recipe book.
I have not tried it yet so it could be a bust, so we will see!!!!
