I'm headed out tongiht for a dinner party! Woohoo. I am bringing my favorite salad and asperagas. Luckily they are making chicken as the main, so I am good to go, for food anyways. So my salad:
Spring Mix Lettuce An Apple Cubbed (as small as you like Dried Cranberries (sprinkle some on) Chopped Peacans (sprinkle as well) Top with your favorite dressing, or a splash of olive oil and vinegar. I got this recipie from cooking light and just changed a few ingedients to make it more Paleo friendly. Ingredients 40 asparagus spears, trimmed (about 2 pounds) Olive Oil cooking spray 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 2 tablespoons butter 2 teaspoons glueten free soy sauce 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar Cracked black pepper (optional) Grated lemon rind (optional)
Coat baking sheet with cooking spray. Sprinkle with pepper. Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until tender.Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat; cook 3 minutes or until lightly browned, shaking pan occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in soy sauce and balsamic vinegar. Drizzle over asparagus, tossing well to coat. Garnish with cracked pepper and rind, if desired.
