“Love one another and you will be happy. It’s as simple and as difficult as that.”

~ Michael Leunig

Something Meesus TTP and I enjoy doing from time to time is picking up already “prepped” dishes (of the Paleo variety, of course) from the Fresh Market grocery store here in Greenville, NC.  We find this to be a good compromise between dropping a pretty big chunk of cash for a dinner out, and having something a little special.  Plus, we retain control as to the cooking method.  We’ve never been disappointed in Fresh Market’s product quality or variety, and the prices for that quality and variety are quite reasonable.  Here’s what we had on Friday night:

First Course

What you see here is coconut encrusted and fried shrimp, lobster and shrimp stuffed tilapia, avocado and a lemon wedge for the fish.

Second Course; "Black and Bleu" Sirloin
Second Course; "Black and Bleu" Sirloin

This is a bacon wrapped, bleu cheese stuffed, cracked black pepper encrusted sirloin, broiled to a medium-rare perfection on a bacon greased, cast iron comal.  Add to this a smattering of fruit and a glass of Shiraz Cabernet and you’ve got yourself quite a meal.  Bon appetit!

In Health,

  1. A surf and turf if I ever saw one! Looks absolutely delicious especially the starter. The blue cheese stuffing must have made the steak……….
    Keep up the food pictures love seeing what your eating!

  2. Love the Leunig quote, he is a genius of the highest order and a lovely man to boot. Always enjoy food pictures (I started doing the same when Art De Vany posted his) except they tend to make me hungry.

  3. God this looks good! On travel at a conference right now so I had about 8 hours in the car to get here. I did get my meat freak on last night with carne asada. Today lunch was a little too bready, so I am really ready for some surf and turf. That steak looks great! And I tried to get avocado last night with my carne asada but it seems that all they had was guacamole. Which was good, but I want more avocado than onion sometimes. I did pile on some extra cilantro which made it great. My carb coma from this afternoon is just lifing and I think I was dehydrated as well so I am pumping the water in.

    There is a Benihana here so I might have to talk people into that… steak and shrimp night if I’m lucky.


    • Eating on the road is always tough, TrailGrrl. Especially during business related travel, where appearances do matter, and you don’t want to come off as some kind of “freak”.
