I went back to work tonight so my morning was busy, busy, busy.
We were out of our normal grocery store purchased bacon, so I defrosted a hunk of smoked swine that I’d bought from the Full of Life Farm stand.
Now that is some serious bacon – no low-fat, center-cut shit for me!
I sliced it up (in my new T-shirt, no less)…
…baked a tray of bacon in the toaster oven…
…and collected a nice pot o’ gold.
For breakfast, I nuked some frozen broccoli and ate it with leftover wings from the slow cooker roast chicken from the other night.
As a mid-morning snack, I made myself a bacon avocado sammy.
The bacon was just too damn tempting to pass up.
Afterwards, I used some bacon grease to moisten a baking dish of braised cabbage that I’d just reheat this evening for dinner.
Yes, 2.5 hours is a long time to bake anything – let alone a lowly head of cabbage – but this dish is worth it.
At lunchtime, I made a new variation of Egg Foo Young-ish pancakes.
This time, I added sautéed mushrooms, diced ham, Calcot onions, and frozen spinach. I topped them with a big dollop of guacamole and Primavera salsa before chowing down.
A bunch of packages were delivered in the mail bearing Paleo goodies…
After lunch, I filled and preheated the SousVide Supreme to 140 F so it would be ready and waiting when I woke up in the evening.
After my two hour nap, I popped out of bed and threw our dinner in the SousVide Supreme…
Then, I drove to pick up my monthly box of Marin Sun Farms’ meat and eggs…
…and took Big-O to his T-ball game.
When we got home, I got dinner on the table in 15 minutes.
…and nuked the braised cabbage I made earlier.
Here’s my dinner plate:
Happy, happy, joy, joy.0
