The weather has turned gray, rainy and typical of a Portland spring and I want Delicata squash.  I have a serious crush on that vegetable and I’m counting down the weeks until I can have it back in my cooking pans.     I want to try reuse my leftovers this week in more dinners so I hope you enjoy this weeks Paleo Meal Plan.









“Super Slow Roasted Rosemary Crusted Chuck Steak” by Shannon Hayes in The Grassfed Gourmet with steamed asparagus.  Note – I do let the meat rest and then I just throw it in the crock pot on the lowest setting for 4 hours.

Servings: 6
Author: Shannon Hayes


  • Garlic-Rosemary Rub
  • 2 tbsp of dried rosemary
  • 1 1/2 tbsp coarse salt
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 pounds chuck roast 2 1/2


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. Rub Garlic-Rosemary rub in the chuck. Cover loosely with plastic wrap, and let rest at room temperature for 30 - 60 minutes.
  3. Roast the meat in a shallow pan for 30 minutes then lower to 170.
  4. Continue to roast for 4 to 6 hours, or until internal meat thermometer registers 120 degrees to 125 degrees.
  5. Allow the meat to rest, tented loosely with foil for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing and serving.




Take the left over chuck steak and make Steak sandwiches using grilled Portobello mushrooms as buns.  Enjoy with a salad.

    I recently found your site and I have to say it’s a lifesaver. I love to cook but I get so overwhelmed each week when I sit down to plan our meals. Thank you!

    I’m not a big fan of squash and I’ve never had chard. I was so bummed cuz I passed a Whole Foods on Friday and didn’t have a single list of any of the ingredients from your fabulous recipes!
