This is the week that will never end.
I swear, the short weeks are the worst. Especially since we’re snowy and for whatever reason, school hasn’t been canceled or even delayed. Yesterday all of Fort Carson was on a “phased arrival for non-mission essential” whatever but the kids still had to be at school bright and early.
Lucky for me, I have one kid that goes to a school within walking distance. So he’ll either walk with his friends or I’ll walk with him. But then the other one’s preschool is a good drive away. So I called the secretary yesterday morning and said, “I’m not driving in this.”
And she said, “Excuse me?”
And I said, “My kid’s not coming to school.”
And she said, “Ummm…..”
So. We skipped preschool yesterday. Rebels.
At least I called, right?
A few weeks ago, when we made our family trip to IKEA, I tortured my husband (who is doing a strict Paleo diet) by pointing out every sign for their Swedish meatballs. Neither of us have ever tried the meatballs but the pictures were enough to make us both sad that we couldn’t have any.
And I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been thinking about them ever since.
So I made these Paleo ones which really wasn’t that hard since meatballs are just balls of meat. So pretty much Paleo to begin with. There’s no bread crumbs or anything like that but they have a great texture regardless. And the sauce has coconut milk instead of sour cream or regular cream or whatever typically goes into Swedish meatballs.
If I put these in front of you and left out the fact that they’re Paleo, you’d never know. You get no hint of the coconut milk. They really taste like traditional Swedish meatballs. And you could totally mash or rice some cauliflower so you have something to absorb all that delicious sauce.
