Today was filled with minimal cooking but lots of outdoor time with the family. Now, if I could only get some more sleep, things would be peachy.

For breakfast this morning, I fried some bacon and eggs for the kiddies…

…and broiled a skillet filled with leftover Cheater Sous Vide Crispy Duck Confit Legs, roasted butternut squash, frozen spinach, eggs, and Magic Mushroom Powder for the grown-ups.

I also slurped up a bowl of beefy bone broth filled with shredded beef shanks.

After breakfast, we all synthesized some vitamin D by hiking at Foothills Park.

It was nice being outside, chasing each other on the trails, and catching the glorious vistas.

By the time lunchtime rolled around, we were famished. We stopped by an overpriced, mediocre restaurant in a neighboring town where we were served uninspired grub by an inattentive waitress. I ordered a lamb chop salad…

…and the chops were gray even though I ordered them medium-rare. We waited so long for our food, I didn’t want to make a fuss and send it back. Seriously, it was 2:30 p.m. by the time we got our chow and we had all turned into pumpkins already. Needless to say, we ain’t heading back anytime soon.

Luckily, our sour moods were lifted when we met our friends at the park later in the afternoon. The boys practiced baseball and I spent some time MovNating around the play structures.

At dinnertime, I just reheated the last of the Dutch Oven Pork Roast and stir-fried sliced kohlrabi and chard in bacon grease.

Here’s my dinner plate:

I’m serious about wanting more sleep. Good night everyone!
