It was a busy, busy day with no time to cook but I was able to eat pretty clean – despite eating dinner at a pre-school potluck. Wanna see?

In the morning, our family was hustling to get the heck out of our house. Before accompanying Lil-O to his preschool class in the morning, I ate a fried Applegate Farms chicken apple sausage, leftover garlic cauliflower mashed potatoes, and sliced heirloom tomatoes.

After a fun but exhausting morning at the preschool, I came home and reheated leftover Lion’s head, roasted broccoli and cauliflower, and braised eggplant.

Don’t worry, I’ll pester my mom until she gives up her recipe for Lion’s head meatballs. I can be a persistent mofo when I want to be.

In the afternoon, I ran some errands with the kids and picked up my weekly vegetable CSA haul from Mariquita Farm.

We were attending a potluck in the neighborhood park for Lil-O’s preschool, so I prepared roasted broccoli with crispy prosciutto and balsamic vinegar when we got home.

After the side dish was finished, we ran over to the park and the kids played with their pals and I checked out the potluck spread. As usual, it was a cornucopia of carbs and sugar.

Le sigh.

Despite the slim pickings, I was able to cobble together a Paleo-friendly dinner plate with some rotisserie chicken, roasted broccoli with crispy prosciutto, and baby carrots.

(Sorry for the shitty pic – I only had my iPhone on hand.)

That’s it for tonight!
