Paleo Eats: 5/4/13

Pin It

After recovering from a whirlwind trip to Kansas City, I’m finally back to my regular zombie drug dealer routine at the hospital. I’ll post about my trip to the heartland soon, but first I’ll show you what I stuck in my craw on Saturday.

These days, my packed nosh for work is almost always a box of leftovers from previous dinners during the week. I eat “lunch” about two-thirds of the way through my shift (around 4 a.m.), and then I make myself “dinner” when I get home in the morning. My last bite of the day almost always involves a couple of eggs because brinner just feels right if the sun’s shining.

Yesterday was no different. As soon as I came home, I donned my amber goggles and whisked a couple of eggs to make myself an omelet.

For the filling, I added sliced Italian sausage…

image

…sautéed mushrooms…

image

…and leftover greens.

As I ate my supper, the boys kept me entertained as they bopped around the living room in their jammies. It’s nice to have a house band.

No matter how tired I am when I get home, I always perk up when I hang with my boys in the morning.

Although I wanted to go to bed right away, I had a chuck eye roast in my defrost bowl that required my attention. I seasoned and seared the beef…

…and wilted a bunch of aromatics in my trusty Dutch oven.

I nestled the roast back into the pot, poured in some homemade bone broth

image

tucked a piece of parchment paper on top

image

…and placed the covered pot roast in the oven. (I’m still tweaking the recipe; in the meantime, make this instead.)

I kissed the boys good night and gave Henry instructions to take out the pot of braised meat in the early afternoon.

When I woke up in the evening, all I had to do for dinner was reheat the pot roast…

image

…slice up the tender meat…

image

…and reduce the sauce.

image

image

To accompany the main event, I made some mashed potatoes in the pressure cooker (yes, we do occassionally eat spuds)…

image

…and roasted a tray of broccoli in the toaster oven that I seasoned with aged balsamic vinegar.

Here’s my dinner plate:

Then, I tucked Big-O and Lil-O in bed before heading off to work again.

So that was my day. Thrilling, right? What…? ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?
