Vacation is officially over but I can’t complain because I’m well-rested and relaxed. Let’s see how long that lasts…

This morning, I didn’t have a chance to eat anything more substantial than a handful of macadamia nuts because I was helping the kids get ready and prepping some last minute meals. Before leaving the house, I cooked a batch of emergency protein (grass fed ground beef, Turkish seasoning, onions, garlic, and cherry tomatoes) and microwaved a spaghetti squash.

After I dropped Big-O off at camp, I met my MIL at the hospital for a bunch of oncology appointments. By the time her chemotherapy infusion appointment started, it was lunchtime so I chowed on my packed lunch of emergency protein and microwaved spaghetti squash…

….along with a grass fed Paleo Kit.

At 2:00 p.m., I drove home and took a short nap in preparation for my graveyard shift.

When I woke up at dinnertime, I plopped the vacuum-sealed umami burgers into the SousVide Supreme and started to work on the sides.

I reheated a big batch of leftover Asian cauliflower fried rice in the microwave…

…roasted a tray of spiced Trumpet mushrooms…

…and nuked some green beans with Fox Point seasoning and butter.

I pan-fried the burgers and dinner was ready.

Here’s my dinner plate:

After dinner, I assembled my meals for work, did twenty-nine burpees, and took off for work.

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
