The Whole9 folks just published a piece that reminded me that I need more sleep. Seriously: The stress of keeping up a daily blog is killing me softly. That’s my excuse for today’s short post. Be grateful that I don’t shut this mofo down.
Just kidding! I love you guys! (Not really. I don’t even know most of you. I’m just saying that to make you feel better.)
For breakfast, I made a quick scramble with leftover Kalua pig, heirloom tomatoes, and Aleppo peppers.
At lunchtime, I threw together a quick salad with leftover kabobs, greens, roasted bell peppers, and tomatoes.
In the afternoon, Dr. HA (a.k.a. Lawyerhands) and her daughter (a.k.a. my future daughter-in-law) came over to hang out and have dinner. I always look forward to spending time with Dr. HA ‘cause she’s hilarious and sharp as a tack. Plus, she’s a fantastic listener. I wonder if she’s ever considered psychology as a career?
While the kids ran around the house building forts and pretending to be pirates, Dr. HA kept me company in the kitchen as I sous vided some chicken breasts seasoned with salt and pepper (in case you were wondering: 140 F for a minimum of 90 minutes)…
…roasted some broccoli and cauliflower that I finished with a sprinkle of balsamic vinegar…
…and sauteed sweet peppers and onions that I topped with basil chiffonade.
Here’s my dinner plate:
Oh, and throughout the day, I ate a ton of coconut products (mostly flakes and defrosted milk). I’m still a total coconut addict.
Time for some much needed shuteye!
