Without further delay, here’s what I stuck in my piehole today:

For breakfast, I ate half a sous vide chicken breast topped with mushroom gravy along with winter squash puree and roasted curried cauliflower.

I also ate a heaping tablespoon of coconut butter.

I vacuum sealed two frozen chicken breasts sprinkled with Fox Point seasoning along with some butter.

Then, I dumped them in the SousVide Supreme for 3 hours. My mother-in-law packed these breasts to take home with her after her oncology appointment in the afternoon.

At lunchtime, I took out a bunch of agretti…


…and sautéed it with some minced garlic in butter. Although I’ve gotten numerous bunches in my CSA box, this is the first time I’ve ever cooked it. I’ve always let it languish in my crisper until I had no choice but to throw it out (like celery root). I’m glad I finally tried it because it’s pretty tasty – crunchy, salty, and tangy all at the same time.

I ate the agretti with a slice of leftover garbage frittata…

…along with a ton of coconut flakes.

For my afternoon snack, I ate some beef jerky from Holding Ranch…

…and some more coconut flakes.

Then, the kids and I ran to the neighborhood pick-up site to get our Mariquita Farms CSA box.

When dinnertime rolled around, I made some braised red cabbage

…and another batch of emergency protein (ground pork, ground grass fed beef, green garlic, leeks, shredded carrots, Swiss chard, and Chili Con Carne seasoning).

Here’s my dinner plate:

Even though I was full, I still ate a huge helping of coconut flakes. Fine. I’ll finally admit that I’m a cuckoo coconut addict. Argh.
