More Paleo-friendly chow coming your way!

On my second night at work, I gobbled down a pressure-cooked egg, leftover Damn Fine Chicken, and mixed veggies (previously frozen). 

Whenever I don’t have leftover vegetables to pack, I always line my lunch box with frozen veggies. They defrost in the fridge and reheat beautifully when I nuke my lunch at work. (I know some of you don’t like using a microwave but Mark Sisson says nuking is a-OK as long as you do it wisely. Check out the article here.)

When I came back to the hotel in the morning, I fried myself a Thai omelet and gobbled it up with a couple of slices of prosciutto. 

After my belly was full, I drove Big-O to school before coming back to sleep.

(As an aside, who thinks it’s funny when their kids sing along to inappropriate songs? I need to stifle my giggles whenever Lil-O croons, “My friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the Empire State…”  He totally zips it when I start chuckling.)

In the evening, I stumbled out of bed and made dinner. I formed some mini beef sliders that I seasoned with Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute, Red Boat Fish Sauce, and tomato paste… 

…peeled and chopped a couple of kohlrabi…

…washed and tore up the leaves…

…and prepped some mushrooms.

I fried the mini burgers…

…stir-fried the kohlrabi and mushrooms with coconut aminos, Red Boat Fish Sauce, and chicken broth…

…and wilted the kohlrabi leaves.

I need to remember to bring over my trusty 12-inch cast iron skillet from Chez Nombomb because the flimsy aluminum skillet provided by the hotel is terrible. I’m thisclose to setting off the fire alarm every meal because the heat conduction is uneven and I’m burning things left and right.

We’re gonna have so much crap to haul home when we move outta here.
