Yay! I’m past my hump night so it’s all downhill from here!

My 10-hour shift passed quickly because the hospital was packed with sick people who needed lots and lots of drugs. While I was on the clock, I ate some leftover softcore albacore with Pizzeria Delfina’s spicy cauliflower and oven-roasted tomatoes (packed in a LunchBots Pico)…

…and a small container of coconut butter. I know I said I’d never buy another jar of coconut butter again but when I was at Whole Foods the other morning I was hungry, damn it.

When I got home, Fitbomb made me a French omelet topped with avocado and Big-O garnished the plate with Aleppo pepper.

Before going to bed, I pureed the marinade for my sister’s phenomenal green chicken

…combined it with three pounds of chicken drumsticks, and stuck the bag in the fridge.

I slept soundly until 5:00 p.m. – but not a minute later – because Big-O burst into my room to wake me up. After rubbing the sleep out of my eyes, I dragged my tired ass to the kitchen to cook dinner. Supper was on the table in less than an hour because I made sure to utilize multiple heat sources/cooking methods for all the dishes.

Wanna see what I made?

I baked the drumsticks in the oven…

roasted a batch of San Marzano tomatoes in the toaster oven…

…steamed some cauliflower on the stove and blitzed a bowl of mashed “potatoes”

…and nuked some green beans that I tossed with butter and topped with toasted almonds.

Here’s my dinner plate:

After dinner, I practiced some Turkish get-ups in the garage before packing my crap for work.

Just a couple more nights left!
