As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m visiting my sister and brother-in-law with my two rugrats. Although the flight down to L.A. is less than one hour, it can be potentially treacherous since I’m alone with two squirmy boys. Thanks to Mr. Jobs, my kids were pretty well behaved and the only minor disaster was a spilled cup of apple juice all over my pants.

Since our flight was at noon, I was going to break my fast while up in the air. I packed myself a can of sardines…

…a Tanka bar and some of Fitbomb’s Paleo trail mix.

Not super satisfying but it quieted my complaining stomach. FYI – the TSA guy made me open up my luggage and asked what was in my unlabeled tin. When I told him it was a can of sardines, he winced, and let me pass through.

When we arrived at my sister’s house, I ate a snack of homemade meatballs (grain-free just for me!)…

…and a delicious salad with super fresh organic greens, toasted almonds, and a balsamic vinaigrette (made with homemade mustard!).

Shit. This is the stuff my sis just has hanging out in her fridge. I wish she lived nearby ‘cause I’d be raiding her ice box all the time.

About Michelle Tam

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.
