Recently we were sent a sample pack of Primal Strips from Primal Spirit Food s. Having never tried Primal Strips before, we looked forward to sampling the the variety pack sent to us. I was first impressed by so many flavors they had to offer. The flavor offerings are Thai Peanut, Mesquite Lime, Teriyaki, Hot & Spicy, Hickory Smoked, and Texas BBQ.
The Primal Sticks are made with seitan, soy, and shiitake mushrooms. The texture was very palatable. Each flavor of jerky was different from the other and offered a lovely spiciness to the strip. Living in the South, jerky is made of meat. Ugh. You mention jerky and you are offered beef, deer or pork jerky. No thanks.
If you have not tried Primal Strips, you should, they are all natural, no artificial colors or flavors, preservative free, and of course vegan. Each flavor was perfect. It was hard to find a favorite. I love them all.
Now on to business as usual. For our Monday co-op dinner, we were served chili sin carne al mole with sauteed greens and maple corbread muffins. The chili was spicy. Which I absolutely loved. And the muffins were perfect. The boys inhaled the cornbread muffins. This meal was delicious. Something I will definitely make in the future.
Last night for our Tuesday co-op meal we were served a rice cabbage casserole with a beets and greens gratin. I love cabbage, so the casserole was right up my alley. Arthur ate some of the casserole which is a big step for him, since he is the pickiest out of my two little guys. Adam loved both. The best part of this meal was the fact that a majority of the veggies came from our Tuesday night chef’s garden. Nothing beats a meal fresh from the garden. And I almost forgot to mention we also received oatmeal cookies with coconut, pecans and chocolate chips for dessert. Yum!
Most of us have our favorite list of blogs. You know the ones you check on a daily basis. There is one in particular that I like and am going to mention. I was also mentioned on today’s post. “Thank you.” The blog is Reduce Footprints . With the environment going to hell in a handbasket and animals becoming more and more extinct. It is nice to see a blog that is about making a difference and how you too can make a difference. There are tips to reduce your footprint on the earth. Every Wednesday there is a new challenge, called “Change the World Wednesday”, which I really like, plus gardening tips and more.

Today is a busy day for me. I am cooking for the co-op and I have some bread that I need to make for Josh’s coworker. And a ton of laundry. But the best part about the chaotic day. We are getting ready to go to the beach. We are leaving early Friday morning and will take the boys on their first camping trip. Yay! I can’t wait. We are going to make s’mores, roast some tofu dogs, build sandcastles, play in the water and check out the sand sculpture festival.
Well I am off to cook and drink a cup of coffee. Hope you each have a lovely day.
