Today was muy busy and I’m really tired so this post will be a quick recap of my grub and meal preparation.
In the morning, I picked up my CSA box…
…and dropped by Whole Paycheck to buy some last minute items for our Super Bowl party tomorrow.
When I returned home, I roasted off some red bell peppers that I’ll serve as part of a roasted vegetable platter tomorrow.
We spent a fun, laughter-filled afternoon at Big-O’s best friend’s house where we were fed a yummy homemade brunch (frittata, salad, and seared sausages).
Next, we went to a cousin’s daughter’s birthday bash at Bay Aerials Gymnastics where our kids jumped, tumbled, and swung on things for over an hour. Fitbomb’s cousin even served the kiddies a Primal-friendly meal: cubed cheese, diced ham, fruit, and veggies.
They’re better cave parents than us!
Right after the party, hubby and I went to dinner at Pampas to celebrate the same cousin’s 40th birthday. The company was fun and the grub was mighty tasty. This plate was one of several I devoured.
After dinner, we came home and I removed the brisket from the SousVide Supreme (147 F for 48 hours) and dunked it in an ice bath.
I’m searing this hunk ‘o meat tomorrow for the party. I hope it doesn’t taste like leather!
I also chopped up three onions and tossed them with three slices worth of diced bacon, salt, and pepper in the bottom of a large Dutch oven.
Then, I lay the marinated Boston pork butt on top…
…covered it, and placed it in the oven set at 250 F. I’m going to let the pork roast overnight (~8 hours) and broil the roast in the morning to give it some yummy char. I gotta get some much needed rest because I got a shitload to prep for tomorrow’s party. Good night!1
