Yummeh Dinners

Today is the day to talk about some food.

I've had some ground beef defrosted in the fridge for a couple of days.  So yesterday I scoured the internet for a good ground beef paleo recipe.  I came across this recipe for Lebanese Ground Beef Kebabs. Doesn't that look yummy??

I didn't use mint with these, simply because I didn't have any.  I grilled these on the foreman grill while I made the sides.  What were the sides?  Green & Purple Asparagus sauteed in coconut oil with salt & pepper -and- Warm Spinach Salad with Bacon.  I placed the asparagus on the plate, some of the spinach and then laid the kebabs on top of the spinach, still on the stick.  Jonas, who is 9, LOVED these kebabs!  Clearly, next time I make these I need to double the recipe so we have leftovers for me to stick in his lunch!

I've never liked cooked greens.  The just warm/wilted spinach?  Eh, I ate it but it wasn't my favorite. Since there was none left, I gather the rest of the house liked them.

The asparagus?  I have come to love asparagus. I love the flavor!  I like it grilled best, but the way I sauteed them last night was delicious too.

I'm looking forward to trying new things with foods I get from the farmer's markets over the summer.

And the pieces that were on the raw side were the ones I didn't like. Too crispy and much more bitter to me. The wilted ones had the better flavour.
