Since the kiddos were spending the night at my in-laws, Fitbomb and I were able to sleep in today after a busy night of…blogging. We’re such nerds.
Shortly after I woke up, I made myself some breakfast. I nuked some sous vide chicken breast and roasted broccoli over leftover vegetables from chicken-in-the-pot (sadly there are no more drumsticks).
Then, we ventured to the local farmers’ market and I was able to make several rounds, slowly picking and choosing my produce. Although it was nice leisurely strolling through the market, I was sad that the kids weren’t with me to gobble our weight in samples together. When you keep returning for the same samples as a kid-less adult, it’s pretty shameful.
After a short jog around a local lake, we returned home and I whipped up a frittata for hubs and myself. For the two of us, I gathered six eggs, a couple shallots, a handful of mushrooms, a tomato, and a bunch of chard.
I think it’s done after 10 minutes under the broiler…
…but I had to stick the frittata back under the broiler to finish cooking after I cut it. I’m too damn impatient when I make a 6-egg frittata. For dessert, I treated myself to a bowl of coconut milk and some macadamia nuts and coconut flakes.
In preparation of my workweek that starts on Wednesday night, I made an oven-braised beef stew with carrots, parsnips, and lancinato kale.
You’ll see the recipe when I serve it later in the week.
I was pretty pooped by the time dinnertime rolled around so I decided to eat the slow braised pork leg with citrus and fajita seasoning for dinner tonight instead of serving it during my workweek. Inspired by our lunch at Chipotle, I made a salad with shredded pork, homemade guacamole, mini sweet peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes (from the farmers’market!), and shredded carrots.
I followed my salad up with a heaping tablespoon of coconut butter.
Today was nice, relaxing, and productive. I was even able to flip through my new Dorie Greenspan cookbook, Around My French Table, to look for Paleo-friendly recipes. Too bad we still have our X-mas decorations up or I’d be gloating.
