Cauliflower Stir Fry

As part of a school assignment I had to think of a new stir fry recipe to make for lunch! When I looked up some ideas I saw a lot of recipes that had rice and spaghetti in them. I decided to make my own paleo version of a rice stir fry. Here is my recipe:



half a head of cauliflower

2 mushrooms

1 pint of canned venison

1 onion (chopped)

1/4 cup of peas

1/4 cup of broccoli

salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste


Wash cauliflower and place in blender. Blend until it looks like rice. Sauté onion in a frying pan. Add cauliflower. Wash and cut up the mushrooms and broccoli. Add to frying pan along with the peas. Combine everything together and add the venison and salt/pepper/garlic powder. Let fry for 5-10 minutes. Delicious!

IMG_1666My incubator keeps the temperature at 99.6 degrees F and I have been monitoring the humidity to keep it at 50-55%. If the humidity gets to high, not enough liquid will evaporate out of the egg which could then drown the chick at hatch time. If the temperature gets to high it could ‘cook’ the embryo. Low temperature is not quite as big of a deal because an embryo can go dormant if it is cool for a prolonged period of time.

IMG_1669 By three days of incubation the chick’s nose, lungs, legs, wings, and tail have begun developing. Blood vessels are getting bigger and the heart will start beating soon. Under a microscope the chick’s spinal column would look like a question mark. I will be able to tell which of my eggs are developing at day 10! I can’t wait!


Have a great weekend!
