Hello, hello!

For my meals at work tonight, I packed foods that could be scarfed down cold at my desk.

My first container was filled with leftover fried Padron peppers, deli roast beef, sauerkraut, olives, baby carrots, and jicama.

I also polished off a couple spoonfuls of coconut butter.

As a mid-shift snack, I ate a package of chipotle SeaSnax roasted seaweed. The spiciness of these crispy treats really creeps up on you – I like it!

Things got pretty hectic at work so I didn’t end up eating the last meal I packed for work. Instead, I came home and fried a couple scrambled eggs and a chicken apple sausage and ate my breakfast-for-dinner with a chopped tomato.

Then, it was time to pick up another half hog from the Full of Life Farm at the Mountain View Farmers’ Market. Woo hoo! Has it really been less than 5 months since we picked up our first hundred pounds of swine?

Besides our pork treasure trove…

…I also stocked up on grass fed ground beef, tomatoes, greens, stone fruit, and berries. 

I stored all my Paleo goodies in the fridge and freezer and stumbled to bed.

When I woke up in the evening, we jetted down the 101 to Redwood City to grab some burgers and veggies at The Patty Shack with Lawyerhands, Oldskoolboarder, and their adorable kids.

The Double O’s LOVE hanging with D & I…

…but Lil-O is TOTALLY head-over-heels, puppy-dog crushing on I. 


I’ll be so psyched when she’s my daughter-in-law! That village matchmaker sure knows her stuff…

After stuffing my belly with a bun-less juicy Midnight Burger and greens…

…we came home and put the boys to bed.

 I finally removed the oxtails from the SousVide Supreme (after 72 hours) and dunked them in an ice bath. 

Then, I practiced some assisted pistols and rowed 1K on our erg in the garage. Shoot. How can rowing kick my booty so hard?

After I packed my food and stored the oxtails in fridge, I drove to work. Only three more nights of work!
