Stir-Fried Broccoli Slaw

First off, I need to apologize for my photography skills. They aren’t exactly up to par and I’m using my iphone to take pics but I’m trying. 😉 Second, Connor is officially my food model.. although getting him to wear clothes is something I need to work on. Without further ado,

 

 

I like to think that I’m so organized with Pinterest and all, but in reality, I look in the fridge and just throw something together. My home-made mayo epic-ally failed. FYI: NEVER add gelatin to runny mayo. What the heck was I thinking?

 

Recipe:

Look in fridge, grab randomly, toss in pan, add fat. Good to go. Hehehe ok here it is

  • Chop some sweet potato and shallot (or garlic and onion), warm in pan with extra virgin coconut oil and some sea salt
  • Add in broccoli slaw (broccoli, carrots, purple cabbage). I cheated and bought it shredded. Oh so easy peasy.
  • Shred some roasted chicken. I also cheated on this and bought an already ready chicken and just shredded from leftovers last night. 
  • Add a generous dab of Kerrygold butter when nearing your desired done-ness. I didn’t want it mushy but cooked enough that Connor could eat it. The broccoli slaw tends to be a real jaw work out raw. 

-Omit the chicken/butter and you have a healthy tasty vegan meal. It made tons. This lil dish is our lunch, Oliver’s dinner at work served with a generous salad and probably our breakfast tomorrow served in scrambled eggs. Yum. 

 

Failed Mayo

What do I do on a Friday night? I hastily try to make some home made mayo. So I barely skimmed ingredients on various websites and decided I didn’t need to do anymore research. Also, I kinda stink at measuring stuff, I just can’t be bothered to measure so I throw things together based on taste= big mistake with mayo.

I roughly threw together 3 eggs, lemon juice, a small amount of cultured sour cream ( I thought, “what the heck?”), apple cider vinegar, sea salt, and extra virgin olive oil. It turned out thin liquid.. hmmm that wasn’t going to work because I was going to make a broccoli slaw. Ok so back to Google.

You need to first let the ingredients reach room temperature… OOPS. Next time I’d like to follow the actual directions and make this: http://nomnompaleo.com/post/3440774534/paleo-mayonnaise

How can you go wrong with Macadamia oil? Need to get a bottle, STAT.

I really dislike to waste things so I took my messed up experiment and added gelatin. LOL. It def thickened up and doesn’t taste half bad! Time to make broccoli slaw.

Happy Friday the 13th.

Uh oh, I decided I deserved a beer today……
