The Ancestral Table: a Review, a Recipe & a Raffle!

A Review: The Ancestral Table

The time has come where we may share our thoughts and love for our friend Russ Crandall’s book, The Ancestral Table: Traditional Recipes for a Paleo Lifestyle. We met Russ just before he started the journey towards crafting this book at a get-together hosted by The Paleo Parents, and the time has surely flown by. If you don’t yet know of Russ, he is the brain and talent behind The Domestic Man. We’ll wait while you go check that out…

Cabbage-Wrapped Steak

A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of hanging out with The Domestic Man and his family as they did some cooking, and we brought along our Orange-Cranberry Bread, which continues to be a great hit.  During the cooking escapades, we also did some work on computers, played with our cameras, and needed a snack.  Russ had some steak out defrosted, so we decided to fire up the grill and make something quick and easy as finger food.  We also had a head of cabbage, so here’s what we came up with.

Mushroom & Steak Wrap

While visiting my parents in Virginia and taking advantage of the farmer’s market in their town, we needed to do something for lunch.  My parents are supportive of our eating habits, but haven’t decided it’s time for them to take on the same dietary approach.  Growing up in the midwest, I can totally appreciate that after 50+ years of eating a certain way without any pressing health issues they aren’t convinced what we are doing is necessary or right for them.  They usually will eat what we make, and like it, so that’s one fewer meal full of grain and dairy.  We ended up with thinly cut NY strip, even though we were looking for sandwich steaks–the strip was on sale and they didn’t have the other.  Either way, this was a great lunch that was filling and finished in under 15 minutes.
