Yikes! How did the week pass by so quickly? I have to go back to work tomorrow night so I spent part of the day cooking up a storm for the workweek ahead.

For breakfast, I made myself a scramble with frozen spinach, sliced bratwurst, and Sunny Paris seasoning.

I also savored a large spoonful of coconut butter before dashing off to my class at CrossFit Palo Alto.

When I got home, I ate a post workout meal of Applegate Farms organic roast beef, a baked yam

…and a small container of packaged steamed chestnuts.

At lunchtime, I made myself a big ass salad with leftover slow cooker roast chicken, romaine lettuce, shredded carrots, cucumbers, and avocado. I sprinkled on some fleur de sel and freshly cracked black pepper and dressed it with Primavera salsa.

For snack, I ate a ton of coconut flakes. If you’ve never had any, don’t try them or you’ll become an addict like me.

After lunch, I prepared a big batch of braised Thai green curry with grass fed boneless beef short ribs in the oven (I’ll post the recipe soon)…

…and sous vided a London broil steak, a rack of lamb, and a rack of goat.

I plopped all three packets into the SousVide Supreme set at 130 F but I took them out at different times (racks out after 7 hours, steak out after 3 hours).

Since I was tired of slaving in the kitchen and we had to go to Big-O’s Back to School night, I drove on over to In-N-Out Burgers and ordered take out via the drive-through. My order for two triple meat (technically it’s a double meat + extra patty) protein-style burgers with whole grilled onion and spread replaced with mustard kinda made us the unpopular car in line (the whole grilled onion takes some time) but I didn’t give a rat’s ass.

Them burgers are tasty, cheap, and worth the wait.
