Greetings, earthlings.

I wasn’t terribly hungry during my 10-hour work shift, so I ended up eating only some shelf-stable snacks that I keep stashed in my drawer: Toasty Onion SeaSnax, roasted chestnuts, dark chocolate, and a package of Sophia’s Survival Food Grass Fed Spicy Jerky Chews.

In the morning, I dunked half a dozen steaks in the SousVide Supreme and hit the sack. The boys, on the other hand, spent a much more exciting day cheering on the beasts at the CrossFit Games NorCal Regionals. You can read all about it on my hubby’s blog.

When I woke up in the evening, the Double-Os filled me in on all the action. Right off the bat, Big-O informed me that a number of the male firebreathers “showed their nipples AGAIN.“

Plus, they ran into someone sporting an original Deadlift Girl tank top.

(Pam, the cutie modeling the collector’s item, is developing a cool online nutrition tracking app called EatDifferent – go check it out here.)

I’ve gotta admit that I was a bit blue after hearing the boys’ rundown of the day’s events; I hate missing out on the fun every other weekend because of work. Luckily, my sadness was short-lived because right after the debrief, my hubby presented me with a huge bag of treats that he’d bought from the Steve’s Original booth. He knows that a pile of grass fed PaleoKits, dark chocolate espresso PaleoKrunch bars, and dried apples has a much quicker onset than a capsule of Prozac.

Before we headed to Sancho’s Taqueria for dinner, the boys squinted at the solar eclipse…

…while I fished out the steaks from my SousVide Supreme…

…and torched one to slice up and pack in Big-O’s lunches.

At Sancho’s, I ordered a house salad topped with shrimp, carnitas, and guacamole…

…and an extra side of carnitas to take home (for just $3!).

The boys were tuckered out after their long day…

…and conked out as soon as we returned to the hotel. I wish I could’ve done the same, but duty calls. Thankfully, I’ve only got three more nights of work to go.

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. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
