Back to waking up with the sun! Too bad I slept crappy last night and the sun rose way too early…

This morning, I fueled myself for the long day ahead by chowing down on a fried egg, chicken apple sausage, and nuked frozen broccoli.

Since I ate that green stuff, no one was allowed to pinch me today.

I spent the morning running errands with Little-O and we met my parents for lunch at Paradise Kabab House in Redwood City. I really like their Soltani combination plate, which comes with koobideh and your choice of beef or lamb kababs. Today I ordered the lamb and the koobideh and asked them to hold the rice.

Everything was well-seasoned and properly cooked. I scarfed it all down really fast.

After lunch, we made a pit stop at Sigona’s market and stocked up on some meat and produce. Then, we picked up Big-O and his playdate buddy from school and we hung at home for the rest of the day.

While Little-O napped and Big-O played with his pal, I placed a pot of curried beef stew (that I made with rogan josh seasoning, carrots, parsnips, and mushrooms) into the oven.

I also made some roasted red bell peppers so we’d have something to snack on during the week.

As I was cooking, I snacked on some coconut butter, coconut flakes, and coconut milk and strawberries.

I’m trying to limit my nut intake but that’s only turned me into a crazed coconut addict.

At dinnertime, I roasted a tray of curried cauliflower and I served it with my beefy rogan josh.

Good eats. Now I need to…pass…out.
