Thanks to Matt and Stacy’s magical meatballs (the recipe’s available in their groovy cookbook, Eat Like A Dinosaur), both kiddies were well enough to go to school this morning. Thank the stars because I had a ton to accomplish before I worked graveyard shift in the evening.

For breakfast, I fried up three scrambled pastured eggs and ate them with sliced avocado.

While the kids were out of the house, I seared a couple of pork leg roasts…

…blitzed the sauce…

…and popped the Dutch Oven Pork Roast into the oven for a few hours.

At lunchtime, I broke out a stick of compound butter…

…and fried up some leftover meat and bell peppers. I wrapped up the savory filling in a curry-flavored Pure Wrap and gobbled it up.

My favorite emergency protein these days is definitely the leftover cross shanks and oxtails that I reserve from my meaty pressure cooker bone broth. What are you waiting for? Get a pressure cooker already!

After lunch, I removed the pork stew from the oven and shredded the meat with a couple of forks.

I did some data validation on my upcoming iPad cooking app before taking a short nap in the afternoon. Each new version of our app is looking better and better and the suggestions from our developers to improve the user interface have been awesome. The whole Nombomb clan is crossing all of our body parts to ensure that the app will be in the iTunes store by next month. FYI, we’re descended from a long line of bendy Chinese acrobats.

(If you want to hear me blabber on about the app, check out my interview with Angelo Coppola over at Latest in Paleo. And, yes, I do sound like Minnie Mouse.)

When I woke up in the evening, I dropped Big-O off at little league practice and came home to make dinner. 

I simmered a batch of cauliflower mashed fauxtatoes in the pressure cooker (8 minutes on high pressure with ½ cup of bone broth)…

…broiled asparagus spears…

…and reheated the pork stew.

Here’s my dinner plate:

After dinner, I packed my meals for work and drove to the hospital.

I have to tell you though, I’d much rather be staying up all night with my Paleo buddies back in Austin…

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.

From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
