This morning I woke up with yet another sore throat. Stress, lack of sleep, and going balls to the wall during yesterday’s WOD may have a little something to do with it. Perfect timing, too, since I was starting work tonight. Someone punch me in the face, please.

I had no leftover protein again and no time to cook a proper breakfast, so I opened up another can of sardines and ate that with some nuked frozen broccoli and a handful of macadamia nuts.

I spent the morning with my mother-in-law at her medical oncology appointment. Although we hoped she wouldn’t need IV chemo, it looks like she’ll be starting a 14-week course of it soon to drastically cut the risk of cancer reoccurrence.

When we came back from the appointment, I quickly made lunch which consisted of a frittata filled with “emergency protein” (seasoned ground beef and kale) and red cabbage slaw.

I also dunked in the two seasoned rack of lamb packets I vacuum sealed last night in the SousVide Supreme.

After lunch, my head was throbbing and I was ready to take my scheduled nap.

When I woke up at 5:00 p.m., I started preparing dinner. I knew I had a flank steak and two racks of lamb ready and waiting in my SousVide Supreme, so I made some garlic cauliflower mashed potatoes

roasted broccoli and bacon (drizzled with balsamic vinegar)…

…and sautéed mushrooms in butter with Fines Herbes seasoning.

For our main dish, I decided to serve the rack of lamb

…and I iced the sous vide flank steak.

Here’ s my dinner plate:

Yes, the lamb was a wee bit underdone but I gobbled it up tout de suite.

After dinner, I gathered all my crap and left for work. I’ll be sucking on Cold-Eeze all night…
