I had another busy night at the hospital so here’s my public service announcement for the day:

Git yer flu shots, people!

Once the kiddies return to school and infect each other, you can bet there’s contagious snot all over the place.

Let’s return to our regular programming, shall we?

For my meals at work, I ate some deli turkey meat, a salad topped with leftover kabobs, and a coconut PaleoKit.

On my way home from work, I stopped by Whole Paycheck to restock on groceries and take advantage of the Friday One Day Sale on packaged deli meat (Buy 2, get 1 free!). Who’s got two thumbs and loves to save money? This gal!

O.K., who am I kidding? I’m a spendthrift but I like to pretend that I learned something from my frugal Chinese parents. 

When I got home, I settled my grumbling stomach with the last of the leftover sous vide Cowboy chop before heading to bed.

At 5:00 p.m., I woke up, drove Big-O to his best bud’s house for a sleepover, and came home to make dinner. Meal prep was super simple tonight because I was serving leftover curried goat shanks that I’d defrosted in the fridge.

While the stew was reheating, I threw a tray of curried cauliflower into the toaster oven, and stir-fried a batch of quick greens and bacon with K’s homemade bacon…

…and sliced collards.

Presto change-o!

After I plated the greens and bacon, I removed the roasted cauliflower from the toaster oven and drizzled on lime juice and a shower of minced cilantro.

Here’s my dinner plate:

After dinner, we tucked Lil-O in bed and reassured him that his big brother would be returning in the morning. Then, I did some exercise in our home gym, gathered my crap for work, and headed out into the night.
