I had a busy 24 hours: I went to work, picked up veggies and half a hog at the farmers’ market, slept, hosted my glam fashion exec cousin and her charming hubby for dinner, did a short stint of exercise in the garage, and I went back to work again. That’s it, folks. I’m signing off.
You want pictures and more details? So damn demanding…
While I was at work, I ate some sous vide chicken breast topped with Aubergine dip along with some nuked frozen green beans and a baked sweet potato.
My last meal at work was leftover pork pot roast, reheated frozen green beans, and roasted butternut squash.
When I got home from work, I seasoned and vacuum-sealed two honking T-bone steaks that I was going to sous vide for dinner later.
I also unpacked two cases of coconut flakes that we received from Amazon.
Stop looking at me like that! I’m not a crazy coconut horder!
Then, the family piled into the car and drove to the Mountain View Farmers’ market to pick up more veggies and 100 pounds of pork. Yes, I pick up two different vegetable CSA boxes every week but we go through greens fast.
At home, I unloaded our four boxes of swine…
…and transferred the porky treasures into our chest freezer in the garage.
It’s literally filled to the tippy-top with meat.
I preheated my SousVide Supreme to 130 F and gave instructions to dear hubby to plop in the steaks at 4:00 p.m. (2 hour soaking time). Then, I downed a can of sardines…
…and hit the sack.
When I woke up in the evening, I ran to the kitchen and started preparing dinner. I reheated some curried cream of broccoli soup that I’d stored in my freezer a few weeks back…
…broiled a batch of asparagus tossed in bacon grease that I finished with a drizzle of aged balsamic vinegar…
…prepared some mushroom gravy with a splash of heavy cream…
…and whipped up a batch of cauliflower, carrot, and parsnip puree.
After I torched the steaks, I plated our dinner:
Once the kiddies were put to bed and our guests left, I packed my meals for work, cobbled together a short homemade WOD, and then I sped off to work. Only three more nights of work!
