So the Crossfit Games prrrrrretty much made me feel like a total failure at life. I mean, I could totally deadlift 325# if I wanted to…so maybe this was the motivation I need to get off my ass. I totally would have dominated the hammer event, too, no big deal. You’ll see me in SoCal next year, I swear!!!
In the mean time, I cooked up a storm this weekend. My friend Brittany was in town from DC, so I made my best attempt to lay out a Paleo banquet to accompany our watching the Games and our forays at the Irish Fest. I roasted a whole duck and shoved about three handfuls of diced apples mixed with cinnamon and coconut oil up its ass. Duck Butt Apples are the best. Pretty sure I can die happy now. We didn’t even have anything else for dinner Friday night. Just went after that duck like the zombies went after Rick’s horse in the Walking Dead. I wish I was exaggerating even a little bit.
Speaking of apples, I still had a ton leftover at the end of the weekend. I don’t really eat much fruit anymore and they were starting to get a little soft. Thank you, my dearest husband, for buying a dozen apples like two days before you go back to Boston for two months…ANYWAY. I was pretty desperate to get these apples into something quick–and so Breakfast Cobbler was born. I’ve definitely heard of making fruit cobblers in the slow cooker before, but you know me…FRUIT IS NOT DESSERT. But fruit can be breakfast! And if you leave the crockpot on overnight…instant breakfast!
6 Apples, cored and sliced
1 T Coconut Oil
1/2 c Coconut Milk
1/2 c Shredded Coconut (unsweetened)
1/2 c Raisins (or other dried fruit)
1 T Cinnamon
1 t Salt
1 T Vanilla
Grease the bottom of your crockpot with the coconut oil.
Place all other ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir until combined. Pour into the crockpot.
Cook on LOW for 6 hours or just overnight. Serve topped with raw nuts and more coconut.by
