Paleo Eats: 11/3/11

Pin It

It finally feels like autumn in the Bay Area, especially with the blustery winds whipping crispy, dead leaves into our entryway. It’s the perfect weather for sleeping during the day – but there’s no way in hell I’m regretting taking PTO.

For breakfast this morning, I ate a French omelet with leftover mini burgers and sliced tomatoes.

I also chowed on a handful of macadamia nuts before heading to Lil-O’s school to fulfill my semi-monthly participating parent duties. While at the co-op, I proudly sported an Eat Like a Dino long-sleeve T-shirt from Paleo Parents and got tons of compliments from the kiddies and teachers.

When I returned home at lunchtime, I reheated leftovers from the other night: slow cooker roast chicken & gravy, carrot & parsnip puree, and roasted Brussels sprouts. Yep, it’s the exact lunch I ate yesterday from the same bowl. Why mess with a good thing?

Since I had a couple hours to kill before the kids came home, I made a conscious decision to bake Paleo pumpkin, coconut, & maple custard cups instead of folding the mountains of laundry piled on the bed in the guest room.

I definitely have my priorities straight.

In the evening, we hosted a few impromptu play dates — Big-O hung with his friend, Z, and I chilled out with R and Z’s mom.

For dinner, I made the same mini burgers as last night but I served them with three different contorni.

I roasted radicchio in the oven…

stir-fried spigarello and bacon

…and made a quick tomato salad…

…before frying up the beef patties.

Time to get some zzz’s!
