Paleo Eats: 8/16/11 

Pin It

I’ve got two more nights of work before I’ve got a week off again…

For my first meal at work, I ate the last of the smoked turkey thigh (big sigh) with some roasted bell peppers, fried Padron peppers, and cherry tomatoes. I also ate a small container of coconut butter because I love that stuff.

Midway through my nightshift, I snacked on a nectarine and a small bowl of defrosted Hawaiian Sun coconut milk. Man, what a yummy and filling treat! In fact, I stayed full until the morning and went home before eating my last packed meal.

Once I got home, I plunked some veggies and the pre-seasoned chicken in the slow cooker liner and placed it in the fridge. I wrote down instructions for my mother-in-law to plop the pre-seasoned chicken into the slow cooker later this afternoon so it would be ready when I woke up in the evening.

By this time I was hangry, so I scarfed down a slice of leftover frittata.

I picked up Big-O from his overnight stay and he was SUPER DUPER bummed to leave his buddy’s house. Apparently, the two of them were bouncing off the walls until late. Too bad I was sleeping the day away and didn’t have to deal with the aftermath until later…

When I woke up in the evening, I was delighted to find TWO parcels pour moi that were delivered in the mail! Fitbomb and I were generously gifted a bunch of super-cute Paleo-themed shirts from Kyle over at Family Living Simple AND a big box o’meat courtesy of U.S. Wellness Meats! Thank you! Thank you!

My week off will be spent sporting my cool new shirts, sharing meat sticks with Big-O…

…and sous viding the short ribs…

…beef tongue…

…and beef cheeks!

The presents coupled with the fact that I only had one more night of work, made it the best night EVAH!

Let’s dial it back down a notch and get back to dinner…

Since the slow cooker roast chicken was already finished cooking…

…all I had to do was blend the gravy…

…roast a tray of portobello mushrooms

…and stir fry a head of cabbage and sliced onion that I topped with cherry tomatoes.

Here’s my dinner plate:

Afterwards, I practiced some jerks and assisted pistols in the garage before heading in to work for the last time this week. Finally!
