Every Saturday we bring you a blog rendition of some of our favorite things going on this week in our own world and in the paleo world at large in a Weekend Wrap-Up. Every week we will feature our favorite paleo recipes from our archives and from other paleo bloggers that are on our minds lately, as well as a few coupons for products we personally love, and some suggested reading for things we found interesting this week. Let’s do this thing!
Happy Birthday Stacy!
We’ve had a busy week this week…. well, I guess like always. That’s just how we roll in the Paleo Parents household. We really don’t know how to keep still or idle, and we always live life to the fullest as best we can. On Wednesday we celebrated Stacy’s birthday, and we had such a great time cooking Stacy’s favorite foods and snuggling together as a family.
For breakfast we had Eggs Stacy… her absolute favorite, and a well loved recipe from our blog. It’s kinda like an awesome mash up of Eggs Florentine and Eggs Benedict. You should definitely check it out! Delish…
For dinner we cooked a feast inspired by The Ancestral Table Cookbook. For the full details of this wonderful meal, make sure to keep reading below. (Hint…. #chickenandwaffles )
Our Favorite Paleo Parents Archive Recipe of the Week:
If you can’t tell already, we are kinda nuts for Chocolate and Marshmallows. This recipe was a collaboration of a few different ideas, and it really is proof that sometimes it takes a few different people to come up with a good idea. You can read the story about how we created this recipe with homemade marshmallows for some special friends of ours, and get the full recipe here.

This is really an awesome coupon to be able to use to stock up on high quality pastured and grass fed meats from US Wellness Meats! They have a flat shipping rate, so you can fully take advantage of this coupon code “estrogen” for 15% off orders of 40 pounds or less. Especially with kids back in school, their grass fed hot dogs and snack sticks are a lifesaver for us. Come to think of it — I better stock up on those hot dogs so that we can make that Paleo Mummy Dog recipe that we just mentioned above….

What are we reading and cooking this week?
e celebrated Stacy’s birthday this week on Wednesday, and for her birthday she requested a very special comfort meal that happens to be all the rage on fine dining menus these days: Chicken and Waffles! Even though this dish might have it’s origins in the Southern United States, it is quickly becoming popular all over and we totally understand the reason why. You guys know how salty and sweet go together right? Well there is just something about fried chicken with waffles and maple syrup that just goes together so perfectly, even though it might seem strange.
We paired our own famous Waffles from our first book with Russ’s recipe for Fried Chicken from The Ancestral Table, and also served his Meaty Collard Greens from the book on the side. The whole meal was just magical, and while Fried Chicken won’t be an everyday kind of recipe, it is definitely something worthy of a fun special occasion! The Meaty Collard Greens however couldn’t be simpler, and is definitely a regular staple in our house.
As much as we are in denial, Russ and family from The Domestic Man are relocating with the Navy to Florida in early October *sad face*. So, what better way to say farwell than with a giant potluck?!
RULE: YOU MUST BRING A DISH FROM THEDOMESTICMAN.COM or HIS BOOK THE ANCESTRAL TABLE (or else bring something to drink) If you make a dish with rice or dairy (even butter) please label it as such for those of us with food intolerances. Labeling nightshades (peppers, spicy herbs, tomatoes, eggplant, and white potato) as well as nuts is super helpful too! Best yet, label the dish with the name and ingredients (if you’re an overachiever).
BONUS! Mickey Trescott from AutoimmunePaleo.com will also be in town – so you’ll have AT LEAST 3 bloggers with cookbooks in attendance. Feel free to bring your books to get signed! Don’t stress out about cooking for us, we’ll likely be the ones to screw something up 😉
Look forward to seeing you all and wishing Russ and family a fond farewell (or perhaps we’ll duct tape them here so they can’t leave). Make sure you RSVP to the party HERE.
There’s also been a lot going on over on Instagram, go check it out so you don’t miss out! You can catch glimpses of our every day life, with plenty of heavy lifting, our boys being #totesadorbs and all the delicious things that Matt cooks for our family!
