People of Earth: How are you?
For my one and only meal at work, I ate some cucumber, bell peppers, and organic roast beef slices topped with Aubergine dip. I also chowed on spicy kraut and a couple squares of dark chocolate.
When I got home, I blended the marinade for my sister’s phenomenal green chicken…
…and tossed it along with a bunch of drumsticks.
I’ve gotta say I’m stoked that this marinade rescued my Vitamix from our appliance graveyard in the garage. Since I no longer make daily sugar bombs a.k.a. smoothies for me and the kids, my muy expensive blender was accumulating spider webs…
After I stuck the chicken in the fridge, Lil-O and I walked Big-O to school.
Before hitting the sack, I fried and ate a leftover square of porktastic meatloaf…
…and finished my reading assignment for Melicious’s book club.
When I woke up in the evening, I roasted the chicken drumsticks in the oven…
…for 40 minutes set at 375 F on convection roast…
…and stir-fried a batch of Asian cauliflower fried rice with bacon and eggs.
Here’s my dinner plate:
After dinner, I practiced some assisted pistols in the garage and rowed 1K before leaving for work. Just a couple more nights of work left!
What did I eat at work today? I thought you’d never ask.
My first meal of the day was a big bowl of curried cream of broccoli soup and sous vide chicken breast.
I know it looks like there’s only a small piece of chicken in the soup but there’s a ton of meat lurking under the surface.
For snack, I ate a small container of coconut flakes and macadamia nuts. I love this snack. Note to self: during me time off, I really need to limit my intake of this stuff.
The last meal I ate at work was some leftover sous vide flank steak with herb gravy, nuked green beans, and carrot and parsnip puree.
When I got home from work, I took Big-O to school and then hung out with the little guy. Before turning in, I filled and preheated my SousVide Supreme to 135 F so it would be ready to reheat precooked sous vide pork chops when I got up later that evening.
At dinnertime, I dropped the precooked pork chops in the water oven and then I broiled some asparagus spears tossed in bacon grease (that I finished with a drizzle of aged balsamic vinegar)…
…and prepared some Asian cauliflower fried rice.
I seared my chops with my kitchen torch…
…and dinner was served.
After dinner I quickly boxed up some meals for work. I only had around 10-15 minutes to spare for exercise so I decided to try a 2K row on our erg. When I finished, I gulped down half a baked sweet potato and deli turkey slices, showered, and headed to work. Only two more nights of work!
