B – 3 slices (or was it 2) of bacon and 2 or 3 scrambled eggs. Think it’s 3 bacon and 2 eggs. Made it a couple of days ago. Plus a banana and a clementine.
L – Small salad, some of the soup I made yesterday and a clementine or two.
D – Made these Trader Joe’s chicken skewer things. Like Chicken Satay. I think they called them chicken satay, but they weren’t quite. Boy wanted them, I think he ate 3, I had the rest. I got them as appetizers for my party but ended up not making them. He likes them ‘cause they have these knotted bamboo skewers that he thinks look like swords. So they are all in a bag waiting for him. Also made 1 bunch of kale chips and I sautéed 3 onions in some of the left over lard/olive oil mix from last time I made the confit. Yep, I ate 3 whole onions. Of course they reduced down a lot by cooking. Onions are plenty primal, right? Oh, had a tall can of strongbow too, and a few pork rinds.
So I spent most of the day at the seminary again measuring, so no chance to go to the Y. Will do a spinning class tomorrow, but that will be just 2 spins this whole week. No LHT, and not gonna happen this weekend either since I’ll have the kids.
Other than that… I cooked dinner, cleaned, kids took baths… I cooked my chicken leg confit today, and that seemed to go well, falling off the bone tender. Not as salty as last time. Think I may pull off parts to put into salads. Think that may be good. It took a ton of olive oil to do, though. Luckily I had grabbed a somewhat old can from the old place and knew it needed to be used. But I got over 3 quarts left from that. I guess I’ll use that to make salad dressing, sautéing potatoes and onions, etc. Maybe even make confit again…
I guess that’s all I have now. Think I’ve said most everything else over the last couple of days. Obviously still having issues. When I got back to the office I was listening to old sad songs. But still bottled up.
