Today was my running-errands day. Picked up clothes from the dry-cleaner, deposited a check, sent out mail and stopped at the grocery store for some exciting Paleo ingredients (yay!).
Our Boise Co-Op is amazing. It literally has every single “weird” and unheard-of ingredient. It is my favorite place to shop at by far! I love going in there…even its organic/hippie smell is attractive to me. My husband hates the smell, but I love it! Good thing he never grocery shops . It’s my role in the family to do that. I am the housewife and I adore it. I get to decide what we eat, how the house looks, how we arrange things, what and how to remodel, etc. Complete reigns. It allows my creativity to come out and shine!
Plus, I am totally hooked on the Desperate Housewives TV show, so I like to think of myself as a member of the gang. Pretty silly, but its oh-so-fun!
While grocery shopping today, I came across some pretty amazing looking squash. Locally grown, of course. They were gorgeous. And I am not exaggerating. They caught my eye instantly and they ‘made me’ stretch my hand and grab a few. I couldn’t help myself. I had to get me some of that good-looking squash.
I knew exactly what to do with them at home. Check out this delicious Paleo Squash and Egg Bake recipe!
