"Pulled Pork" Wheat Belly Supper

Last night's Wheat Belly supper was some BBQed "pulled pork" I made from some ham we had frozen since Christmas! Yes, and it was delicious!

I cut up some onion, cauliflower, broccoli, and red potatoes and roasted them in the oven.  It was so simple, and so good that we wished we had made more!

You Must Read "The Shack"!

We found ourselves shut inside a condo on Indian Rocks Beach, in Clearwater, FL, this winter during a freak storm of high wind and rain.  Had it not been for the little library within the beach front unit, I may have gone crazy!

My granddaughter suddenly exclaimed, "Oh, Papaw, you have to read this book!

That may have been may have been one of the highlights of my entire life.  I've read the Bible through in several versions, but never had I completely grasped the meaning of a relationship with the Holy Trinity.  "The Shack"*, by William P. Young, opened my mine to the great love of each part of God.  It also made me more aware of the Holy Spirit, a part that we often overlook in our thoughts, action, and prayers. 

PLEASE, PLEASE, read this book soon; it will change your life and relationship with everything! 

Plus, there is a movie coming out soon, and you need to read the original thoughts of Mr. Young before you see it!

*A grieving father receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him to meet in the Oregon wilderness where his daughter has been abducted and murdered. In a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant, "The Shack" wrestles with the timeless question, "Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?"

Scallops and Shrimp With Asparagus

If you've been following me lately, you know that I'm a Wheat Belly practitioner.  So, the simple object is to avoid "grains" altogether.

Tonight I was craving some seafood; scallops and shrimp, to be exact.  I came up with this real quick and easy way to prepare this type of seafood without much mess and fuss, and "real" bread.

I bought 8 large, raw, scallops and shrimp, and a can of cut asparagus.  I kind of wish I'd bought only asparagus tips, because in a can of "cut asparagus", you always find one of two tough stringy pieces.  This bite always makes me rethink the purchase, but I do love asparagus!  If I'd had more time, I would have sautéed my own, using butter; next time.
Anyway, I put pats of butter around the bottom of two oven friendly bowls, and placed a scallop on top of each piece.  Around the edges, of my bowl, I placed the shrimp. 

In another pan, I heated olive oil (real California), salt, pepper, garlic, and minced up sun dried tomatoes.  I poured the thoroughly heated mixture over the scallops and shrimp.  I then crumbled "Wheat Belly Herbed Focaccia Flatbread" (made earlier) over the top.

I already had the oven heating to 450 degrees, so I popped the dishes in for 10 minutes.  That's all it takes!  If the shrimp is pink, then it's all done.

When the asparagus is heated, remove the dishes from the oven, section the scallops into 4 bites each, and place on a plate along side the vegetable.  It's good!
