I know that yesterday I promised you my “New Year Recap” for today but I was just so incredibly excited to share my three course meal with you!! Monday is still January – it’s not too late to do the recap then! 🙂 In the mean time – get ready to drool!
As you have briefly heard, I am focusing on healthy eating in 2012. Towards the end of last year I brought you “What I Tasted Tuesday.” I am not quite sure if I am going to stick with that same name, or mix it up a bit this year since Tuesdays aren’t always easy for me. In the mean time, let me tell you all about the three courses of amazing-ness we had for dinner the other night!
The plan was not to have a three course meal. The plan was to decide on one entree and a couple of sides we wanted, cook it up, and have a nice relaxing, sit down meal together. Well, Michael and I are two of the most indecisive people you will ever meet. Since we couldn’t decide on ONE meal, we decided to eat the meal in rounds as we prepared the multiple dishes. And it was a combination of paleo, low carb, terrific-ness!
We started the meal with a steamed artichoke. I had never eaten artichoke like this before. I was much more familiar with the Applebee’s spinach and artichoke dip with greasy chips, than the actual vegetable that the dip spawned from! Who knew all you have to do is steam up that silly looking veggie and dip it’s leaves in organic, grass-fed butter (yes, believe it or not butter isn’t all that bad for you).
