Is my workweek over yet? No? Phooey.
For those of you who care, here’s what I ate on my second to last night of work:
My “lunch” was a box of leftover koobideh kabobs, roasted red bell peppers, roasted broccoli, and wilted radicchio.
I followed this up with a small container of coconut flakes and macadamia nuts.
For my last meal at work, I ate leftover sous vide Wild King Salmon, broiled asparagus, sautéed mushrooms, and roasted curried cauliflower.
When I got home, I sliced up some onions and carrots and threw them in the bottom of my slow cooker. I placed the pork shoulder I marinated a couple days ago on top of the veggies, covered it, and set the Crock-pot on low to cook for 8 hours. Then, I went to my class at CrossFit Palo Alto.
After practicing some push jerks and finishing an intense WOD, I came home, popped my vitamins, and went to sleep.
I woke up at 5:30 p.m. to the delicious aroma of slow cooked pork. There’s nothing like the smell of roasted swine in the evening!
I removed the pork from the slow cooker and broiled it for a couple minutes on each side to give it some roasty-toasty bits.
To accompany the pork…
I roasted some broccoli…
…and sauteed some mushrooms and shallots in melted butter…
…finished off with a splash of my sister’s homemade red wine vinegar…
…made from her own barrel aged wine! Yep, she’s one badass chef and DIY maven.
Here’s my dinner plate:
After tucking my kids in bed and spending some quality time blogging with Fitbomb, I set off for my last night of work.
