Saturday, April 30, 2016. Whole30 plus 88 days of Clean Eating. Mostly.
Let’s see what today brings…
4:00 AM. It’s raining. Hard. Hard enough to wake me up, and wake the 2 dogs. Jane? Oblivious. Me? Back to sleep after a few minutes.
4:30 AM. Moggy, our gray stripy tom cat, thinks this is the best time for some attention. I’m not kidding when I say that this cat is walking on my face and head. I give the dumb cat some attention, “readjust”, and back to sleep (again) after a few more minutes.
6:30 AM. Jane’s alarm. She’s volunteering for a few hours with C5 today. I’m up, too. A few cups of black coffee.
8:oo AM. Breakfast. I halved and then sliced some small yellow potatoes and cooked them in the TFal ActiFry, sliced (on the bias, as the chef’s would say) some Aidells Chicken and Apple sausages and heated them in a frying pan just long enough to caramelize a little, and scrambled up some egg whites with my veggie mixed added. I had to double-up on everything because our son was actually awake AND ate breakfast with me this morning!
2:00 PM. Jane’s putting together some avocado deviled eggs for our bi-weekly family dinner.
Deviled eggs using avocado instead of mayonnaise, threw in some lime juice, cilantro, salt, white pepper, cayenne, and topped with paprika. Of course, we had to sample them to make sure they were good. They were. So here’s what’s interesting – the egg carriers that we have hold 18 egg halves. I mean, really?!?! Do the math, egg keeper carrier people! These egg carriers must have been designed by the same people who sell hotdogs in packs of 10, but hot dog buns in pack of 8. Conspiracy!!! Oh, and let’s not forget the Hebrew National hot dogs that come in packs of 7.
So now that I’m on a hotdog rant, check this out: For appetizers this afternoon, Jane is also making mini corndog muffins. She’s going with Nathan’s dogs and Jiffy classic corn muffin mix. Gotta love Pinterest (so I’m told).
Unfortunately, these little pieces of crap stuck to the mini muffin tin and wouldn’t release. Straight into the bin, as Jane would say. At least we have deviled eggs!
5:00 PM. Dinner. Pot roast with carrots and potatoes, and a fruit salad on the side. Oh, watermelon, how I’ve missed thee.There were other foods to be eaten, but I decided to stay in the clean eating groove. I went back for more watermelon. Twice.
And with that, I think I’ll call it quits for tonight.
10:30 PM. Targeted bed time. We’ll see about that.
And so goes Step Four: Life After Your Whole30. Today was a good day.
