The Whole9 folks just published a piece that reminded me that I need more sleep. Seriously: The stress of keeping up a daily blog is killing me softly. That’s my excuse for today’s short post. Be grateful that I don’t shut this mofo down.

Just kidding! I love you guys! (Not really. I don’t even know most of you. I’m just saying that to make you feel better.)

For breakfast, I made a quick scramble with leftover Kalua pig, heirloom tomatoes, and Aleppo peppers.

At lunchtime, I threw together a quick salad with leftover kabobs, greens, roasted bell peppers, and tomatoes.

In the afternoon, Dr. HA (a.k.a. Lawyerhands) and her daughter (a.k.a. my future daughter-in-law) came over to hang out and have dinner. I always look forward to spending time with Dr. HA ‘cause she’s hilarious and sharp as a tack. Plus, she’s a fantastic listener. I wonder if she’s ever considered psychology as a career?

While the kids ran around the house building forts and pretending to be pirates, Dr. HA kept me company in the kitchen as I sous vided some chicken breasts seasoned with salt and pepper (in case you were wondering: 140 F for a minimum of 90 minutes)…

…roasted some broccoli and cauliflower that I finished with a sprinkle of balsamic vinegar…

…and sauteed sweet peppers and onions that I topped with basil chiffonade.

Here’s my dinner plate:

Oh, and throughout the day, I ate a ton of coconut products (mostly flakes and defrosted milk). I’m still a total coconut addict.

Time for some much needed shuteye!

About Michelle Tam

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
