After dropping Lil-O off at school, I came home and played board games with Big-O. As much as I revel in the free time afforded me when the kiddos are in school, and as much as I’m sad when they’re achy and listless, I kinda like when one of them is home sick. And Big-O actually felt a lot better today, but following school rules, we kept him home because he spiked a fever the night before. It was nice spending some one-on-one time with my big boy.
Since Big-O and I were hanging, I didn’t get around to breakfast until mid-morning. I sauteed sliced shallots in butter and tossed in some leftover shredded cross shanks (from the beefy bone broth) and baby kale.
While the beef and kale heated in the skillet, I had time to season, seal, and plop two steaks in the SousVide Supreme for dinner.
Then, I slathered a dollop of Paleo mayonnaise on a Pure Wrap…
…and piled on the meat and veggies.
I gotta say, these wraps totally filled my sandwich void.
At lunchtime, my parents popped over to check in on Big-O. For our eats, I whisked another fresh batch of Paleo mayonnaise…
…and assembled crab temaki for everyone.
When it was time for supper, I made a veggie stir-fry with the dregs from my crisper (½ a savoy cabbage, ‘shrooms, and onions)…
…and roasted a tray of broccoli in the oven.
Once the side dishes were finished, I took the steaks out of the meat jacuzzi and blasted them with my kitchen torch.
I plated Paleo Happy Meals for the boys…
…and toy-less ones for the big people.
Man, the boneless grass fed rib eye from TX Bar Organics was awesome – super tender, flavorful, and nicely marbled. In contrast, the aged New York steak from my CSA was kind of the opposite (it’s pictured above on the kiddie plate).
I’m tired. Good night.
