Typical Sunday. Woke up way before the other half, took an hour and a half to hit the hardware store, farmer's market, and Trader Joe's. Now intending to stay home, put away boxes, and eventually make a dinner of slightly-cheaty yum.
I'm also going to start making little half-pints of yogurt to take to work (hence, the hardware store trip). One nice thing about TJ's: most of their organic milk is NOT ultra-pasteurized. I'm thinking of doing 3/4th milk, 1/4th cream, because I'd like something with a slightly higher fat content when I'm at work, staving off hunger.
3 juiced valencia oranges (that's just a fancy way of saying "orange juice", but I wanted to specify that I juiced 'em)
1 organic honeycrisp apple
1 organic kalamata fig
Slice of leftover lamb
All eaten over two or three hours as I zipped around town. A little fruit-sugar-heavy, I know, but I got a new juicer and wanted to give it a test run.
Buckwheat pancakes with grassfed butter and maple syrup
2 strips thick-cut bacon
1 duck egg
Half-caff with honey and half-and-half
Duck eggs! I finally snatched up the duck eggs from my egg farmer before anyone else could! And the yolks are H-U-G-E! And so bright and orange!
Cold slices of lamb
Quinoa pasta with tomato-basil-butter sauce
Roasted garlic-aleppo pepper shrimp
Grated fennel salad with cilantro
Homemade citrus syrup with mineral water
Aaaaand the big cheat meal of the week. As GF pasta replacements go, I'm giving the Ancient Grains quinoa pasta pretty high marks. People often say, "Oh, I could serve this to my family and they'd never know it wasn't XYZ!" and they are totally lying. I can confidently say that I could serve this to my parents and they wouldn't know it wasn't wheat. I wish the whole restaurant world used this stuff, because personally I'd rather eat semolina than another mouthful of that fucking awful brown rice crap.
