    Hmm. The Make It Paleo crust (made with courgette instead of aubergine)... it tasted fine and provided a useful base for the pizza toppings... but it was not 'pizza crust' if that makes sense. It was tasty enough that I would have it again but with less expectation of it being like normal pizza! It was fine for what it was, it's just that what it was isn't quite what I was in the mood for, lol.

    I think next time I want to try to emulate 'normal' pizza crust I will try this recipe which gets good comments:

    I did put coconut oil in too - just guess the motor wasn't powerful enough, it's only a Curry's processor - I think it's partly the heat generated that makes it start to turn into butter . I ended up having coconut on everything for a week rather than waste it!I have made mayo before in a processor - almond milk would be doable in a decent blender too.
    Been looking at reviews but everyone seems to point to a vita mix or a blendtec. Can't find a review where someone is using a cheaper blender I can get here to make nut butter but I just can't afford a vita mix this year. Oh well, I will keep looking.

    There was an almond butter recipe in one of the good food supplements recently and they just used a food processor, and I have seen online recipes that use one too. I wonder if almonds would be easier than coconut, which seems quite hard! I do remember reading comments that you may look at it in the processor and think it's never going to turn into butter, but persevere (you might have to let the motor cool down a bit) and it will!

    Here's the recipe that was in the supplement:

    Almond butter recipe - Recipes - BBC Good Food

    Reading the comments it does seem that there are food processors and then there are food processors!

    When I make roasted almond butter I do it when they're still a bit warm from the oven so this might help?

    Massive batch of meatballs in tomato sauce burbling away in the slow cooker to freeze when they're done! All that browning of them should have made me hungry but I don't feel like anything today. I know it's because I'm a bit glum over this job dilemma, and I also know that I won't feel any better if I don't eat something so that I can do my Monday kettlebell session! But that doesn't seem to be getting me to the kitchen...

    Hmm. Home-roasted macadamias are not as yummy as store-bought ones! New batch of almond butter turned out yummy though, instead of honey I mixed in a drop of maple syrup. And didn't burn the almonds this time!

    Found a great tapas restaurant last night that labels their gluten-free tapas options right on the menu! Nice to have an eating out option where you don't have to cross-examine the wait staff to ensure your meal won't make you ill! Food was delicious too!

    Sorry I've been so sketchy on keeping up on minis lately. Been really exhausted/stressed and now fighting off a cold too, everything slips then.

    Mr plum has made some delicious pumpkin custards tonight, we'll have some for pudding and then freeze some for future noshing. I've never tried to freeze them before but they are essentially pumpkin pie filling and I know people freeze pumpkin pie, so fingers crossed this will work out. The cherry upside-down cakes froze ok but are even moister (this is tactful phrasing for 'just a little bit soggy') when defrosted. Still delicious though!

    Hollandaise and poached eggs on bacon and carrot courgette pancakes this morning - yum! Going to try to make paleo meringues with the leftover egg whites, interesting to see how that works out!

    Mmm! mr plum was feeling ambitious so we had paleo sushi for 'lunch' (breakfast was really lunch today, we just wanted something small in the afternoon to keep us until dinner). Used the recipe from Well Fed which spreads avocado on the nori instead of rice - the prawn and mango variety was to die for!

    Next time, though, we're going to use two avocados instead of one. The sushi was hard to roll and then I remembered that American avocados are at least 50% bigger than the ones we buy!

    Edit: smoked haddock chowder for dinner, with a few new potatoes included to provide energy for my workout tomorrow. Yum!
