I was up and at ‘em early because I had a full slate of activities ahead of me. Before zipping out the door, our family spun around the kitchen like Ninjagos as we packed lunches and scarfed breakfast.
Wanna see what I ate?
I nuked leftover sous vide flank steak, winter squash puree, roasted curried cauliflower, sauteed spinach, and oven-roasted tomatoes. Nosh in 2 minutes flat.
I can’t stress enough how EVERYONE should cook big batches of whatever they’re making. Whether you’re cooking for 1 or 6, you’ll still clean the same dang pot at the end of the night. Make it worth the elbow grease.
I spent the morning hanging at Lil-O’s co-op preschool before stopping at Trader Joe’s to buy party supplies. We’re hosting a get-together on Saturday to celebrate the completion of my mother-in-law’s cancer treatments. Although the Paleo-friendly buffet will be catered by Joshua Charles Catering, I still needed to purchase libations and decorations. F- you, cancer!
When I came home, I reheated another box of leftovers (slow cooker Kalua pig and braised cabbage) and ate it with chopped cherry tomatoes.
At dinnertime, I cooked a one-skillet meal because we’re experiencing the last throes of Indian summer and I wanted to keep the house cool. Or I’m just lazy.
I grabbed a package of 4505 Meats's maple breakfast sausage…
…and tossed a chopped salad while the links sizzled in the pan.
Here’s my dinner plate:
If you’re looking for Paleo-friendly breakfast links, these juicy sausages are worth the cost of shipping. 4505 Meats’s merguez is still my favorite, but these savory, sweet, and slightly spicy pork wieners run a close second.
Heh heh. I typed the word wiener.
And, on that classy note, I bid you good night.
