Is it the weekend yet? I love being on PTO, but it’s tough being a full-time mommy, day in and day out. (Cue Artie Lange derisively saying, “WAAAAAH!”)

Alright, enough bitching. Here’s what I ate today:

For breakfast, I ate half a Fox Point seasoned sous vide chicken breast, roasted red bell peppers, sautéed Italian heirloom broccoli, and a dollop of Aubergine dip.

Before taking Little-O to his gym class, I baked a tray of sweet potatoes and yams.

For lunch, I reheated leftover beef shank and cabbage stew, grabbed a baked yam, and roasted baby artichokes.

In the afternoon, I brined some cubed pork butt according to my fairy godmother’s recipe…

…and I whipped up another batch of garlic cauliflower mashed potatoes.

Then we dashed out the door to get to Big-O’s doctor appointment and T-ball game. I had grand plans to cook after T-ball, but by the time the game was over, we were famished. The four of us ended up at The Counter, where I ordered a burger in a bowl.

On our way home, I picked up my CSA box from Mariquita Farm. We now have veggies coming out of our ears.

Gotta catch some zzzz’s. Bonne nuit!
