Paleo Diet Harissa PorkI am loving the Paleo diet I have been on with I get customized menus emailed to me weekly with a grocery list. Of course, I am the queen of adapting and I mix and match and alter the ingredients a tad, but it is nice to have a new source of inspiration. I used the Sriracha Slaw from the Asian Meatballs And Sriracha Slaw post to stuff in the hole of the Butternut squash. Pretty clever huh?
