On a VERY hot 4th of July we wanted something grilled of course yet refreshing. Happy to have the power and internet back, Angela was busy on Pinterest looking up yummy recipes to try. Having tons of fresh basil from the herd garden we are always looking for recipes to use it. When Ang came across this recipe we knew we had a winner.
After dinner we relaxed then headed off to the Clintonville fireworks, not as good as Papa Pitstick's shows but it was a perfect 4th of July :).

Well our power was out for 4 days from a huge storm that rolled through on June 29th. They say it was a derecho, which to us sounds like some kind of Mexican dish. But it is actually a widespread, long lived windstorm and boy did the Midwest get hit. You can learn more about derechos here.
On the first night of the power out, we were actually watching Rieley. We were lucky we picked something to make for dinner that we could on our camp stove. We made chicken patty versions of this chicken nugget recipe. Just fried it up in some coconut oil. Rieley especially loved the porch party that followed. And the next morning we made bacon and eggs on the porch.
Luckily we were able to borrow our friend's generator so we did not lose all of the beef we just bought and didn't have to eat out every meal. We became very good at making things on the grill and camp stove. The best dinner came on the last night of our power being out. We love making brinner and this recipe was just what we needed. We plan on making it when we are out camping along the AT in August.

We came across another yummy primal recipe from Mark's Daily Apple. We are always looking for good ways to make our favorite things like Mexican or Chinese. This recipe has a good homemade mix of spices that is way better than the store bought stuff. We did not do the kale chips, just some chopped iceberg. Here is the link to the recipe.
