Paleo Eats: 2/27/11

Another day of eats coming right up…

Tonight at work, my first meal of the shift was leftover tandoori chicken, sautéed spinach and bacon, and garlic cauliflower mashed potatoes.

At snack time, I threw down some leftover curried cream of broccoli soup with sous vide chicken breast.

My final meal at work this morning? A box of chili con carne-seasoned ground beef with roasted carrots and celery root and stir-fried collard greens and bacon.

After my shift was over, I drove over to the Mountain View Farmers’ Market with the boys and spent a mess of money. I didn’t need any more veggies (I’d picked up two different vegetable CSA boxes this week), but I wanted to stock up on meat, fish, and strawberries.

When we got home, I threw a bunch of pastured beef bones and aromatics into the slow cooker to simmer a pot of beef broth while I slept.

(I’ll post a recipe later this week if it turns out to be successful.)

Then, I gobbled a few squares of dark chocolate (it is an “S” day after all), downed my vitamins, and hit the sack.

When I woke up close to 6:00 p.m., my hubby had already left to pick up some kabobs for dinner from House of Kabobs. This time we ordered a bunch of skewers a la carte.

In the meantime, I got busy preparing side dishes. I roasted some broccoli tossed with avocado oil, salt, and pepper (convection roast 375 F for ~25 minutes)…

 …and wilted some Castelfranco radicchio and shallots.

Here’s my dinner plate:

After boxing up the leftovers and putting the kids to bed, I strained the beef broth and stuck it in the fridge for later. Then, I packed my grub for work and left the house. Only three more nights of work!
