Ahhh…the weekend! With my work schedule, I only get every other weekend off to spend with my family so I try to savor these days as much as I can.

Okay, that sounds so dramatic. Especially given the fact that I get a week off every other week. Truth be told, I’m just stoked that hubs is off on the weekends so I’m not tackling the kiddos by myself.

This morning, my first meal of the day was essentially my last meal yesterday. I made myself some red cabbage slaw with tangy carrot ginger dressing and sliced up a leftover lamb burger.

After breakfast, I went to pick up my Full Belly Farms CSA box.

Yep, that’s a bag of corn meal in the box. Anybody want it?

I picked up my Mariquita Farm CSA box on Thursday so I’m well stocked with veggies this week. It won’t stop me from going to the market, though. My name is Nom Nom Paleo and I’m a healthy food shopaholic.

After Big-O’s kung fu class we ventured to brunch in lieu of his T-ball game which was rained out. We headed to our old standby, Rick’s Cafe, where I ordered a plate of steak and eggs with some mixed greens (hold the bagel and potatoes).

They proudly proclaim that their steaks are only fed grain and grass. Oh well.

After brunch, Little-O took a nap and Big-O went to his buddy’s down the street for a playdate.

What did hubs and I do? (Get your fricking mind out of the gutter!) We blogged because, you, dear readers, are very important to us. And I ate a ton of coconut products and mac nuts while I did it.

At dinnertime, I just had to prepare some veggie sides since I already had a grass fed flank steak percolating in my SousVide Supreme.

I roasted a tray of turnips in the oven…

…roasted a delicata squash in the toaster oven (brushed with melted ghee and seasoned with Shallot-Pepper seasoning)…

…sautéed some mushrooms in butter and a bunch of spinach with shallots in butter (finished off with a squeeze of lemon).

With all my side dishes finished, I blasted my flank steak with my kitchen torch…

…and plated my dinner.

Another day of solid eats.
