Here is another episode of It’s G.D. Cooking Time. This was a spur of the moment idea. We were cooking and I just decided to grab the camera and have a little fun. We had a blast making this episode. I hope you guys enjoy it and maybe try a little quick and easy paleo bread of your own.
A Little Background
For dinner the other night, I planned to make Tangy Taco Salad, a recipe from the Practical Paleo cookbook. It’s basically a meat and veggie mixture that you’d normally put inside a taco or burrito only you put it atop a bed of romaine. The kids love it.
Best Laid Plans
However, things didn’t turn out quite as I intended. See, the plan was to pick up Gavin from school and then stop by this local produce stand to pick up the lettuce. I was about to start cooking when I realized, I completely forgot to stop at the stand when I picked him up. My choices were to take all 3 kids back out to get the lettuce or come up with a new way to make sure everyone had enough to eat at dinner. If I went back out, that meant I wouldn’t have dinner ready when Mom got home from work. I stared in the fridge for a few minutes and then I remembered my lil sous chef Gavin. He’d been working on a paleo bread recipe for a couple weeks and he seemed to have perfected it. So, I asked him to go ahead and make it again for dinner. That way we could still have taco salad (minus the lettuce) with a little piece of paleo bread on the side.
Over Confident Lil Chef
I started grilling up the onions when I look over at Gavin making his bread in the Vitamix.
He did not have any cookbooks open, so I asked him, “what recipe are you following?” He responds with, I’m not. I look at his bread mix in the Vitamix and I had questions– LOTS of them. He basically said Dad chill out, this is how I made it last time. Don’t worry.
Throw Down: Father/Son Style
I’m watching my little 8 year old chef whip up his bread, and I thought ya know what would be fun- a friendly little competition. Gavin was more than game. He’s like yes! That sounds awesome!! Let’s do it!!! So, I grabbed the video camera, and we recorded our second episode of It’s G.D. Cooking Time. If you like our video, please leave us a comment and let us know.
