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!
