What are you eating this Halloween?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 30, 2011 at 1:14 PM

While I really have no desire for candy and other crap at this point, I do enjoy the flavors of Fall such as cinnamon, clove, sage, and nutmeg.

Pumpkins and other winter squashes also call out to me, but not in pie form, rather, something savory and warm.

What got me thinking about this is that I saw this pic on the site PaleoNOMZ and thought that it was the PERFECT Halloween treat.

So, what will you be eating?

FED, let's see if I can make you drool. The entire duck was chopped into pieces that each contained some bone. So, my eating method is to gnaw to my heart's delight then nab a little bite of crisp skin. Mmm!

Enjoy! If you want to use a true pumpkin, IMO the best are the sugar pumpkins. OR make and use a hollowed out regular old pumpkin as your vessel! Oooo, festive! :)

For @Kewpie! Mix and match the aromatics, the squash, etc. You can't hurt this soup, it's mass flexible:

Peel, cut into cubes, and roast a butternut squash until tender. You need about 4-cups. Roasting it this way, and not whole, gives better flavour.

Saute: chopped onion, shallot, garlic in 2-3tb of butter or whatever fat you want. When the aromatics start to get translucent and soften add: 1 tsp of turmeric and 2 tb of curry powder - I use Sun Brand Madras. Mix and cook together for about a minute and turn off the heat.

Using an immersion blender or a regular blender, puree the squash with 2c of chicken stock. Add the aromatics and blend again. I like a really smooth texture so its your choice how fine you want it.

Pour back into a pot and add 1 can of coconut milk. Heat up, add salt and pepper as needed. You can let it reduce if you want, just keep an eye on it so there isn't any burning. A little snipped cilantro and chive on top when you pour into bowls is nice.

I've actually used this puree as a sauce to top Japanese sweet potatoes in a gratin, I just adjusted the liquid. No lie, it's freaky good.

My plan is to buy ONE piece of my favorite candies and have them tomorrow. I'll be breaking my own rules by having carbs and refined sugars on a weekday but it's totally worth it; it makes me feel like a kid again.

I made primal/paleo candy--crisp fried duck skin and sauteed duck meat cooked in the fat rendered from the skin. I added a little salt and it was AWESOME!!!

I'm gonna dress up as a caveman, carry a big gnarly oaken club, beat up little kids, steal their full bags of candy, and pig out.

Just kidding.

It's Halloween? Oh right, I celebrated by eating two cans of sardines this morning, instead of my usual two cans of sardines. That got me in the spirit...
