Turconut and Spoodles

Today I was going to make some sort of stroganoff. The grocery store only had disappointing zucchini, so I left with only ground turkey in hand.
Luckily I had a huge sweet potato at home.

Sauté the turkey in a about 3-4 tablespoons of coconut oil.
Add in some garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, chive, oregano, salt, and pepper.

Peel the sweet potato.
Then keep peeling it, making ribbons if orange. Sauté these in some coconut oil as well.

When the Turkey has browned add some shredded unsweetened coconut.
Pour some chicken stock in the pan, along with just a touch of coconut milk.

When the sweet potato "noodles" have softened, and the turkey is delicious, plate and enjoy.

The family loved this.

Roast Chuck

You can make this in under 90 min.

Chuck Roast
Chicken Stock
Salt, Pepper, Rosemary, Parsley, Thyme, Sage, other random spices.

Sweat the Carrots, Onion, and Garlic
In a large, wide based pot.

When the onions start to become translucent,
Remove them from the pot and set aside.

Crank up the heat on your stove.  Really High.
Ad your chuck roast to the empty pot.
When one side is nicely browned, flip it and brown the other.
You want to sear the meat, to seal in the juices.

When both sides are browned, 
Add the veggies back in.

Then cover with Chicken Stock.

Bring the stock to a boil, then let it simmer for about 30 minutes.
After your 30 minutes, move it to a 400 degree oven for about an 45minutes.

Remove from oven, and Serve.
Along with steamed Cauliflower.

Chili Verde?

With Avocado Cream

Some leftover Pork
Chicken Stock
Green Chiles
Green Pepper
Sour Cream
Cumin, Pepper, Chili Powder, Salt, Cayenne Pepper, Onion Powder

Using Leftover Pork from whatever you made recently...
Mine happened to be some KickAss Ribs

Put it in a large pot and cover with Chicken stock.

Obviously only Homemade will work.

      When the meat begins to fall apart and the bones all come loose, 
remove the pieces and shred with a fork,
 then return to broth.

Gather your veggies and run them through the Food Processor Until they go from:

This....                                         To this.

I then put mine in a pan with some Olive Oil and spices,
and sauteed them until they started to get stinky delicious.
Stinky Delicious

Add them to your pot, and simmer anywhere from 1-8 hours, 
until it becomes a liquid consistency you can appreciate.

While your waiting, have drink, make a trailer for your kids PowerWheel, do some yard work, take a nap, brush the dog, clean the house, and change some diapers.

Oh. And get the kids to help make the Avocado cream.

Who Knows they might have Fun.... 
It's just a Ripe Avocado mixed with Sour Cream.

Serve the Chili in a bowl or large mug, with a healthy portion of the Avocado Cream.

Make sure to make Extra Cream, it really makes the Chili.
And leave some chunks of the Avocado in there, trust me...
