tacos, leftovers, and a breakfast!

tacos were on the menu thursday night...

1 pound of grass-fed ground beef
trader joe's taco seasoning
OR your own mixture of chili powder, cumin, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and cayenne.

your favorite salsa
avocado, sliced
grape tomatoes, sliced
iceberg lettuce--i'm always a fan of darker greens, but i feel like iceberg is the quintessential taco lettuce.
any other vegetables you like: black olives, pickled jalepenos, etc.

and a few non-paleo items for you know who:
sour cream (i dabbled)
corn tortillas
shredded cheese

brown the beef in a pan with a bit of olive oil, add your seasonings and a few tablespoons of salsa. this helps keep it moist. prep your toppings and cook the meant until it is no longer pink.

i topped a whole bunch of sliced iceberg with meat, vegetables, salsa and a dollop of sour cream...

george opted for a different presentation ;)

friday morning i whipped up breakfast and leftovers for packed lunches. george got a taco salad with crushed up corn tortillas.

i made myself a chicken salad with leftovers from wednesday's supper.

i diced up a leftover chicken breast (with bacon), mixed in a finely diced stalk of celery, a couple teaspoons of capers, salt, pepper, and a tablespoon or so of all natural mayonaise. obviously there is a little soybean oil here, which i normally avoid, but i didn't really have time to make a homemade mayo. i'll just take an extra swig of fish oil tonight.

plus 2 clementines and i'm set!

george had to leave before breakfast, but for myself i sauteed 1 shallot and 3-4 baby portobella mushrooms in my most favorite butter

then i scrambled in 4 eggs (yes, i eat 4 or more eggs in one sitting), seasoned well with salt and pepper.
