Howdy, folks!

During my overnight shift at the hospital, I ate my packed lunch like a good cavegirl: leftover kabobs, roasted yam purée, and veggies.

My night at the hospital was uneventful and, before I knew it, the sun was up. 

In the morning, I shuttled the kids from the hotel to school from before heading home. Once I was back at our dusty cave, I entered my sensory deprivation chamber (a.k.a., the guest room that was unaffected by our house flood): I stuck in my earplugs (my trusty Hearos are comfy and keep out the noise), slapped on my eye mask (The SleepMask by Tempur-Pedic is my FAVORITE), and slept the day away.

When I woke up in the early evening, I quickly broiled a tray of prosciutto-wrapped asparagus spears to bring to Lil-O’s preschool potluck.

(If you’re looking for a simple, crowd-pleasing potluck dish, this recipe can’t be beat.)

The potluck at the park was lots of fun, but not surprisingly, the Paleo-friendly pickings were slim. I just piled my plate with raw veggies, fruit salad, asparagus, and a tiny piece of chicken satay.

I was still hungry when I got home (and my hubby hadn’t had dinner yet) so I dunked a package of cooked duck in the SousVide Supreme to make Cheater Crispy Sous Vide Duck Confit Legs.

I fried them up in duck fat…

…and Dinner Part Two was down my gullet in no time.

Afterwards, we hustled the family back to the hotel where we tucked the boys in bed.

In the spare moments I had before speeding off to work, I squeezed in some kettlebell swings…

…packed my nosh, and filled up my thermos with steaming bone broth.

Egads. I’ve still got six more nights to go.
