Guess who’s feeling much better?
One week out from his tonsillectomy and Big-O is pretty much back to his normal self. That makes heading in to work every night much less stressful. Phew.
While I was at working my penultimate graveyard shift of the week at the hospital, I chugged a Thermos of bone broth and gobbled up a box of leftover sous vide steak, grilled eggplant, and stir-fried spinach.
Roasted eggplant tastes even better as cold leftovers – the skin softens and each bite melts in your mouth. (Don’t worry: I’ll post the recipe once I finish writing it up.)
When I returned to the Nombomb cave in the morning, my stomach was growling. I filled a plate with wild salmon lox, avocado, and kimchee and gobbled it up before hitting the sack.
After spending the day unconscious in bed, I staggered to the kitchen and announced that we were having dinner at Asian Box. Lil-O quickly ran to put on his bow tie, and then we headed out.
I ordered my usual: lemongrass marinated pork over steamed veggies and Asian slaw topped with sriracha…
…and my hubby got the same but with a side of Hot Box sauce instead of the sriracha.
We all gobbled up our boxes outside…
…and chatted about what everyone did while I was snoozing.
Happy 4th of July to all my fellow Americans! And everyone else — have a great Wednesday!
