When it rains, it pours.

My sixth consecutive night shift was just as hectic as the previous five. Lovely.

Luckily, I was able to gulp down my packed lunch of leftover crispy sous vide duck confit leg and veggies while dealing drugs. The “M” in my name is for Multitasking.

After emerging from the hospital into the bright sunshine, I shuttled the kiddos to school and passed out until dinnertime. I caught a few extra winks ‘cause I’d already emailed a take-out order to Asian Box that my hubby would be schlepping home.

Robb Wolf recently tweeted that his main eating “rule” is to avoid gluten and not sweat the inconsequential amounts of sugar in stuff like ham and sausage. I love that he’s so sane and practical when it comes to nutrition advice. Plus, stressing about minute amounts of non-Paleo ingredients can be counterproductive if it elevates your cortisol, right? As Dallas and Melissa say: Context matters.

For dinner, I ordered my usual box of six-spice pork (double portion) with Asian vegetable salad (sans dressing), pickled & steamed veggies, herbs, lime, jalapenos, caramel egg, and Miss Jones sriracha sauce. 

Then, we headed back to the hotel where Lil-O insisted on wearing his geeky goggles to bed.

Once I packed lunches for Big-O and myself, I sped off into the darkness for my last night shift this week. Woo hoo!

I’m utterly spent. On top of an atypically insane workweek, I’ve been frantically working with our developer to push out another update to the Nom Nom Paleo iPad app (to deal with an unexpected bug that popped up with the last version) while living in temporary digs. Plus, I’m about to travel to Seattle to soak in all sorts of knowledge at BlogHer Food!

My cup runneth over, so I won’t be posting my Paleo Eats for the next few days. But stay tuned: I have some fun posts in the queue that’ll be published while I’m away, including one on how to take care of my favorite cheap-o kitchen tool (hint: it’s black and heavy), and an update on how we feed the Double-Os. Maybe I’ll throw in a giveaway, too.

I’m sure I’ll be tweeting up a storm, too, so be sure to follow me on Twitter if you don’t already!

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.
