Where I come from there is a great vego restaurant;it's not at all bland like some.
The savoury and sweets stuff is served smorgasboard style and coffees and drinks (non alcoholic!) can be ordered.
Set in beaut park lands, payment is made afterwards in accordance with how much you enjoyed the meal.
Wish it was closer to where I live..............

No! LDT, what did you do? I'll bet you smiled graciously and nodded, maybe even said thank you.
Here's another good one: biscuits and sausage gravy. My grandmother made the best, and made sure I knew how to make them. So easy! I make that about one saturday out of the month. Completely an indulgence!

I made up dinner tonight. Sliced squash and zucchini and peppers, added baby carrots and garlic, in the bottom of a large dish. Topped with chicken breasts, seasoned and a squeeze of lemon. Topped with pats of butter. Baking now, don't know how long? It does smell good, so I better go check on it.

Murchovski, I've never heard of that type of payment system in a restaurant! What a novel idea.

Joygirl....you must be my sister from a different mister.... I'd like to challenge you to a sausage gravy and biscuits cook off.....I make a MEAN batch That use to be my special birthday breakfast request every year. Actually still is.

Dinner tonight was pan sautéed catfish with a mango/papaya salsa on top, green salad, and Paleo blueberry muffins. YUMMY!!!

Didn't eat a lot today,but feel fine. I did have a banana and papaya smoothie for a snack. I also made "Garbage Soup" which is basically whatever veggies you have hanging out in the fridge, simmered in a chicken broth. I threw in some bacon and ground meat as well. This is for me to grab for lunch for the rest of the week.

Wow...been a long time since us yankees were slammed...like maybe a couple weeks since I heard stuff like this form LDT. Its all good. To be honest, I'm jealous of a lot of the food history of the south. So much of what y'all talk about sounds amazing.

Last night I gave in to some stupid chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream someone had in the freezer. We NORMALLY don't have that stuff, and once I discovered it, it was over. Three big bowls in my normal fashion. Would of had more but was stuffed.

So, not much of a fast today. Had some eggs, almonds, fruit, veggies and a big azz salad. Now, I'm guessing there is real ice cream somewhere in the house, and I will be trying to fight it off.

LDT, I need to make some of that soup. I like to have it for lunches, too. I tastes better each day.
A challenge! I have to warn you, mine is full of wheat flour, fat and dairy. I don't have the heart to change it, cause I looooved my Grandma, and everything she cooked was perfect. But, I will accept that challenge! I am so excited to have food kin!

Ghostly, I'm so sorry! I just forget who I am sometimes when talking about food. Forgiveness?

I could so eat some ice cream right now. My fav is Cherry Garcia.
You did eat a lot of other good foods the rest of the day, all is not lost. Plus, I believe it's a proven fact that big azz salads completely cancel out ice cream. Really!

Ghostly.... (Ahem), who is doing the slamming?? Your quoted post wasn't mine ( sorry joygirl , you know I luv ya).....Ghost....remember my family is all from the north (Yankees)... They are lovely people....just can't cook worth a flip .. My Yankee uncle who now lives in Texas, is constantly making fun of southerners. Of course I let him get by with nothing.

Joy...my sausage gravy and bisquits are he farthest thing from Paleo imaginable. That's why I don't eat them often. They are full on coronary bisquits. If we don't stop talking about them I'm going to have to make some soon.

Awwww R.A.L. I hope you feel better. I'm sending my virtual chicken soup and hugs.

Okay folks....Im going to apologize here.....sorry if I come off like the only people in the world that can cook are southerners. I get overly excited sometimes, if not little wacko, when describing how and what we eat down here. I'm especially crazy now that I'm combining southern AND Paleo eating. I assure you my ribbing and story telling is all in good fun.

Now....I have a green smoothie waiting for me..... Lunch today is garbage soup.....Dinner tonight is grilled chicken breasts stuffed with cream cheese and jalapeños, and wrapped in bacon. I will make 'Zoodles' as a side dish.

Happy Eating!

Oh jeez LDT...will you stop apologizing! Its all in good fun. Yes, I realize I wasn't quoting you...my point was you have a partner in crime now.

Thank you Joy for letting me know about the salad trumping ice cream. Now today I will eat a quart (is that a lot?) of some cookie ice cream, but immediately down some lettuce to negate the effects.

RAL - Hope you feel better.

As far as I can see, North or South, it's all American to me...what are grits? And why on earth would you put gravy on your biscuits???

Well, my first attempt at cooking fish was....very successful. H complimented me on a wonderful meal at least 6 times during the evening. Poor lamb is so used to eating pizza I don't think he could fully comprehend that I was capable of cooking anything else. Tonight we have a beef stir fry and I've already planned chicken tarragon and veg for tomorrow. I tell you, I'm on a roll!!

And, I've still not had any chocolate...this is a miracle. I did sneak a couple of biscuits (minus the gravy!), while I was creating a marinade for the beef this afternoon.

I'm at work tomorrow so am preparing a tuna salad to take with me (as opposed to my usual working lunch of a pre-packed bought sandwich and 2 choc bars).

I'm now wondering if I can possibly keep this up or whether I will slip back into my old ways at some point..!

Win, lose or draw....I will cook for all Heaters any day, all day.

Jeni... I'm so proud of you. OF COURSE you can keep it up. Think outside the box....Cooking well doesn't have to be complicated or time consuming.

LadyinBC.... Pretty much YES to your question. You can go to 'nomnompaleo.com' and search for 'Garbage Soup' for a more detailed recipe.

Fried fish in coconut oil IS good for sure. Did you bread your fish with almond or coconut flour? Or did you pan sautée it without in coconut oil?

I just pan fried it, didn't use almond flour, but I think next time I will try that! Never thought to even do that.
