Happy New Year!
While everyone around the globe was getting sloshed, I was at the hospital making sure all the drunks that ended up in the ED got their IV hydration bags. I really can’t complain about being at work because I get holiday pay and everybody is in a festive mood.
For lunch, I packed a LunchBots with leftover slow roasted lamb sirloin and crudités…
…and a heaping spoonful of coconut butter.
For dessert, I gobbled up a small nuked yam.
After going Paleo, yams taste like marshmallows to me. Don’t scoff. My kids might agree with you, but mommy’s always right.
…and simmered everything until the veggies were soft.
For this Whole30-compliant variation, I used a ton of ghee instead of butter. I also subbed out onions and replaced them with leeks.
After I pureed the vegetables, I put the orange mash in the fridge.
In the evening, I roasted the Damn Fine Chicken…
…and reheated the cauliflower, carrot, and parsnip puree.
K also pan-fried some homemade Whole-30 compliant pork belly confit.
Now this is how you get a repeat invite to my house for dinner!
Here’s my dinner plate:
Day 1 down, only 29 more to go!2
