The Hunter-Gatherer diet is pretty straight-forward for my Monday to Friday, 9-5 routine, but come the weekend when it’s time to socialize, this CaveMare wants to smash Paleo back into the Ice Age.
On Saturday night my family got together to celebrate my Mom’s 71st birthday, which means one thing – we eat, drink, and party Italian style. A meal at my parent’s place should really be dubbed Carb-a-Palooza…. fresh homemade pasta, chicken parmigiana, warm crusty bread, veggies sautéed in olive oil, and traditional baked goods from the old country. Our celebration had all of this and more, and guess I what I ate… plain meatballs, rapini, tomato salad, roasted squash, grapes and a clementine.
My mom made her famous Crostoli, an airy fried pastry dusted with icing sugar, and my daughter made a Nectarine Buckle – not an Italian dish mind you, but by the looks of how it was devoured by the family, it must have been delicious! Thankfully, February only has 28 days and I’ll be able to return to the modern age just in time for the next family celebration!
