Duck Stroganoff with Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Duck Stroganoff 3


Have you ever had a moment where you tell yourself, “Damn…just Damn.”  I get those from time to time….  When I get nervous…which really isn’t very often, I talk…ramble…or better yet, blubber!  LOL…Yep, I am one of those.  Thank goodness it doesn’t happen often.  Well I had one of those moments, and well I could just kick myself in my own ass.  Ha, well I will just chalk that up to a whatever moment and move on. 

On a good note, I had a nicely busy weekend.  I worked some overtime, saw a movie, was able to get in 10 – 50ft climbs, spent some time with a Good Friend, went for a swim, and got some cleaning done….  Was a good weekend.  I didn’t get to smoke my brisket, but I will get to it next weekend, well hopefully.  I think I am volunteering with my gym to collect food for the local food pantry….Hmm, well I better check on the date I volunteered for.  After talking to some of my friends, I think I might plan a camping trip to Jackson Falls for my birthday.  There is some camping grounds, but a tone of sport climbing areas.  That sounds like fun!  Climbing and then camping with friends… Now apparently some of my friends do not camp…they laughed at me when I said “pitch a tent.”  LOL, well I guess to each their own, I could do both camp or lavish it up in a plush hotel.   Ok, off track…So onto the climbing.  I am thinking I need to go find a new rope…I am think 100 ft should do for most of the climbs.  They really didn’t look to tall but was told some are 50 ft.  I also need to start reloading my rack with nuts so I could go climb lead.  So excited.

So these duck breasts are from when my Mother, David and I went hunting on a very, very much freezing day.  We ended up with 4 ducks and a frozen David.  He fell into the water going after a downed duck….He ended up hunting the rest of the trip in his undies, a blanket and a mini heater!  It was a fun day, but oh so cold.  I guess if I will keep hunting with them I need to get some good waiters….

My mother was the one who first told me about Duck Stroganoff.  Of, course it wasn’t Primal or Paleo…so I decided to make it so.  It actually is a really simple recipe, and very very close to the real thing.  I have seen others use zucchini noodle (zoodles) or just eat the stroganoff alone.  I wanted to try something else.  I made some Sweet Potato Gnocchi.  There are a ton of recipes for Paleo Sweet Potato Gnocchi.  Me, I just mix sweet potato, egg, almond flour, tapioca starch and coconut flour till I get a dough.  Simple right?  These are grand to eat by themselves or with other dishes that would usually be eaten with a noodle.  I like them pan fried with coconut oil, but they can be boiled too.

Since, stroganoff is creamy, I thought the sweet potato gnocchi would go good with it.  I know this is usually a fall meal, but I had been craving it.  I had successfully made it Paleo and it is yummy.  The duck gives it a more feral taste, but still very good.  I hope ya’ll enjoy it as much as I do!  

Till next time, eat well and have fun doing it!
