Happy Labor Day!

Is there a better way to start the day than devouring a face made out of fat and protein?


I didn’t eat this breakfast and neither did the kids so that only leaves a certain middle-aged caveman lawyer. Any guesses?

Here’s my not-as-adorable breakfast: scrambled eggs, leftover roast veggies, cherry tomatoes, and half a 4505 Meats bacon-studded hotdog.

As soon as I’d gobbled my breakfast, the kids started nagging me to bake some Primal Palate Chocolate Chip cookies to bring to Dr. HA’s barbecue. It’s hard to believe that the last time our household made these cookies, I was unable to try them because I was on the Whole30. Thank goodness I ain’t doing that this month!

Big-O is super excited about the upcoming release of Bill & Hayley’s new cookbook, Make It Paleo, because I’ve assured him it contains LOTS of recipes for Paleo treats and cheats. My older son is totally into the candy cigarettes and big, glossy cookbooks filled with beautiful food porn. I guess the apple don’t fall far from the tree!

We brought the cookies to the party ‘cause there is no way in H-E-double-hockey-sticks we’re keeping four dozen cookies at our house. I finally tried a cookie, and it was, “Goooo-oood!” as Lil-O likes to sing/shout. 

The whole family had a fantastic time at C & H’s place, as usual. There was great conversation punctuated with guffaws…

…delicious, Paleo-friendly grub…

…and Lil-O was able to frolic with his ladylove.

We so didn’t want to leave, which is always the case when we hang with C & H, but we finally did because we were meeting my glam fashion-exec cousin and her hubby for dinner at Anatolian Kitchen.

At the restaurant, Fitbomb and I split a combo grill platter…

…and a whole roasted sea bass.

A tasty way to end a fantastic holiday weekend!
