Eat Evolved

You are what you eat. Eat what you've evolved to eat.

A happy accident

Just in case you think that everything I cook turns out awesome, I should let you know that I occasionally have some epic failures. Tonight was one of those nights–Husband put some cube steaks out to thaw, and I decided I’d try to make some Primal country fried steak. The steak itself turned out okay, I guess, but enough of the almond breading fell off that I couldn’t make the gravy in the pan without it being all chunky and gross. I’ll use the steak for steak and eggs this weekend–we went out and got some Thai food instead, and we just ate it without rice.

I ended up with a leftover can of coconut milk that I didn’t use for the gravy, and no immediate use for it. And I had just had a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, so I decided I wanted one of the Paleo Brownies I made last weekend. And then I noticed the open can of coconut milk, which had an abundance of the really thick creamy part and not much of the actual liquid. So I took the more solid part of the coconut milk off the top, and had spoonfuls of it with bites of brownie.

It tasted JUST like a Hostess Snowball. Had I sprinkled it with a little bit of dried coconut, I’d have even gotten the mouthfeel right. All it was missing was the marshmallow, and really, whose favorite part of a Snowball is the marshmallow? Honestly, this dessert made me feel as if I had at least somewhat redeemed the bad day–not the eating of it, but the successful creation of it.
