I’m still in Love with my food processor. So, I thought I’d create a fun dish that I can store in the fridge for the week ahead with breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.
Over the weekend, I got to thinking, I love my chicken and veal has such incredible flavor so why not combine the two? I wanted to keep it relatively simple, so a dash of sea salt n’ pepper along with paprika was all the spice I needed. My favorite fresh herb, curly parsley added the perfect touch of natural sweetness and I was all smiles.
I created this pate for my lunch on Saturday and enjoyed it atop my french onion soup along with salsa. I stored the left over pate in the fridge and enjoyed it with dinner atop a spinach and arugula salad with roasted vegetables. Then, arose the next morning to enjoy it with my eggs and toast.
Now, there is only a lil’ bit left, and what am I doing? Using it as a dip, of course.
I’m enjoying this pate with my gluten-free crackers and it’s delish.
So, there you have it.
Need a lil’ buddy to add some flavor to your breakfast, lunch n’ dinner..O and even your snacks too?
I assure you you’ll like this one…
Just haven’t quite figured out how to incorporate it into my dessert yet, hehe…

And Recently In The News … Eating Bad May Make You Sad … What are your thoughts on this?
It’s quite interesting…eating yucky, processed, packaged foods can leave you feeling yucky… just like a rainy, sleety, snowy day (like Saturday here in Manhattan) leaves you feelin’ cold and not so peppy, a sunny, Spring-like day (like yesterday here in Manhattan) makes you feel fabulous n’ sunny inside.
O man, I’m so ready for Spring.
And the sun is shinin’ today.
