Of course, it didn't arrive until December 27th. To top it off, when I went to cancel the one from Amazon, I discovered it shipped on December 17th (hasn't arrived yet). When it does arrive, I am going to give it as a gift to Beautiful Oldest Granddaughter, as I am trying to get her interested in cooking more Paleo meals for her and her Dad.

As it was just the two of us for Christmas dinner, I didn't want to make a whole turkey and be eating it for days after so we opted for roast beef and Yorkshire pudding.
I had found a Paleo Yorkshire pudding recipe from Paleo Cupboard that looked great , was easy and only used a few ingredients.

It is just me and Paleo Grandad for Christmas Dinner, but Boxing Day will be Oldest Son and Youngest Son and four granddaughters ranging in age from eight to 19 years old. We will open presents, eat great food and play games - can't wait.

Sunday brunch, and as I have always loved biscuits and was inspired to try to Paleo-ize a recipe I saw on a cooking show on television yesterday, and the results were really good - here's the recipe for everyone to try - bet you can't just eat one.

Today, I decided to make magic - Magic Mushroom Powder (Nomnom Paleo) and Magic Dust (The Clothes Make the Girl) new Well Fed 2 cookbook. Both are seasonings for meat and vegetables but they are quite different. The Magic Mushroom Powder has a salty, hot, mushroomy umami that adds a lot of flavour to meat. The Magic Dust is sooooo good, I could eat it with a spoon!

I have pretty strong willpower... except for chocolate. I am not crazy about chocolates, but I do love chocolate. My favourite is milk chocolate (Galaxy milk chocolate bars from England are the best) but, by now most of us have heard, really dark chocolate is much better for you. You can only eat so much dark chocolate. (That's probably why it's better for you.)

Youngest Son has a friend whose family owns a grass-fed beef farm and, even though they are regularly sold out of sides, halves or quarters of beef, we are lucky enough to get in on some grass fed ground beef, stew beef, breakfast sausage - and this week - beef bones, and beef tenderloin at an amazing price. Bonus, they have a friend who has a bee farm and I was able to get a big jar of raw honey. They also have pick-up only a few blocks from us - double bonus.

I went out yesterday and finished my Christmas shopping - yay! After Christmas shopping I had to pick up a few groceries at Save-On and I found three things you might be interested in:
