I know I’d posted last month that I wouldn’t blog on my flip day (the day I finish a 7-night stretch of work), but just for the Whole30, I’m forgoing sleep just so I can show you every little morsel I eat. You’re welcome.
On my last night at work, I ate some leftover Cheater Crispy Sous Vide Duck Confit Legs; cauliflower, carrot, and parsnip puree; sautéed baby kale, and roasted portobello mushrooms.
When I got home in the morning, I rolled a curry-flavored Pure Wraps around leftover Slow Cooker Cheater Pork Stew and micro greens.
After polishing it off, I also downed a heaping spoonful of coconut butter.
Despite wanting to pass out, I managed to season a few short ribs from 4505 Meats with Magic Powder…
…and vacuum-seal them…
…before dunking them in the SousVide Supreme.
I’m gonna let these meaty bones hot tub it for 48 hours at 140°F.
When I woke up in the early afternoon, I chilled out with the Double-Os. Both of my boys are sick, and hacking up all sorts of gooey grossness. The only time we left the house was to pick up our ”Mystery Box” from Mariquita Farm.
I can’t wait for Mariquita’s CSA season to resume in March ‘cause these intermittent, optional deliveries are way too infrequent. I want to follow Dallas and Melissa’s guidelines for eating seasonally, but sometimes it’s too damned cold to venture to the farmers’ market on a frigid Sunday morning.
Because I hauled home a huge bag of fresh vegetables, I knew I had to cook off a ton of old produce.
I roasted a tray of kabocha squash…
…and Brussels sprouts dusted with homemade Dukka.
Thank you, Melicious, for inspiring me to turn into a Veg-O-Matic instead of a pumpkin this evening. Her kickass Whole30-approved cookbook, Well Fed, has a permanent spot on my kitchen counter this month. Go git yer own RIGHT NOW by clicking here.
For dinner, I fried up a batch of Burger Bites seasoned with Magic Powder…
…and a garbage stir-fry with the other wilty veggies in the fridge.
Now, I must catch some zzzz’s. Good night, paleosphere.
