Chicken Thighs and Green Beans

For all my loyal blog readers, I went with the chicken for dinner yesterday, fish tonight for dinner!  I’m not the biggest fan of dark meat, but I went with the boneless, skinless chicken thighs; I’m more inclined to get chicken breast usually.  So I baked them with a spice mix for about 45 minutes to an hour, then I cooked up some green beans (it’s questionable as to whether or not they are Paleo, but I’ve read that they are okay on Paleo…and that’s my final answer).  I cooked them up with some butter, garlic, and lemon pepper.  They came out SO good.  Like I said in my previous blog, I was feeling adventurous, so I made my own gravy…EPIC FAIL.  Well, that’s not entirely true.  It was alright, but I definitely won’t be making that again.  If anyone has any good Paleo gravy recipes, please send them my way!

I went to a little market place close to my house that sells mostly gluten free stuff, but had a small Paleo section they were working on expanding.  They didn’t have much, but they had the Paleo Bread that I had been seeing online.  Needless to say I picked it up, brought it home, and made a tuna sandwich…another EPIC FAIL.  It just didn’t do it for me.  I much rather would use the Paleo pizza dough recipe, and use it as bread.  I’ll experiment with the rest of the Paleo bread I have, maybe toast it or use it as a hamburger bun, but like the gravy…first and last time I try that.

My fish dinner, also epic fail.  I baked some talapia with onions and tomatoes.  I was never really a big fish person, unless it’s sushi.  And although it may have tasted good, I just don’t really have the taste buds for it.  The real deal breaker was the bone in my fish…bit that, then I was really done. HaHa  It just wasn’t my day for food, but trial and error.  I shall learn from my mistakes!  I have a feeling I’m going to stay away from the fish dishes from now on.  I’ll probably do more with shrimp and mussels…because shrimp and mussels are AWESOME.
