My intention was to get up early this morning, it was Corey’s parents last day here and I was thinking maybe a special frittata or maybe some steak and eggs.

But, that’s OK, don’t make anything for us, we’re good with coffee, said Corey’s Mom this morning and quite honestly I heaved a bit of a sigh of relief.  One thing Paleo cooking is not is quick and easy.  Every meal takes some time and some effort.  It’s almost always worth it, but sometimes, yeah.  I just don’t feel like making breakfast.

After his parents left (and we bought them coffee) – I made Corey and I a pumpkin pie smoothie.  I neglected to take a picture because I was listening on the phone while scooping and blending (on mute) – but this is a good treat.  I used half a can of pumpkin, a bunch of spice, a whack load of ice, some almond milk, vanilla extract, and a package of Stevia.  A super yummy treat.

This held us till noon, when we headed for Crossfit.  Though Fran was the workout of the day, I received a modified half Karen.  My back has been bothering me, and I think it’s making me generally out of sorts.  I’ve been adhering strictly to the diet, but I’ve been feeling a little “off” these last few days.  Lethargic, and I wasn’t on my game today for the workout.

Lunch, 2 PM: Shepherd’s Pie with Mashed Cauliflower

Tried this one before, liked it even better this time now that the cauliflower wasn’t green! (no green onions added to the cauliflower)

Had some grapefruit in the late afternoon before we took Nolan to his swim class.  I didn’t start dinner till 6:30, which was kind of dumb in retrospect, because I decided to cook my first whole chicken tonight.  A year ago, I was burning kraft dinner.  I have asked myself multiple times in the last week: who the hell have I turned into?  I’m not sure, but she cooks hella better than the girl I used to be.

8:30 PM, Dinner: Roasted Chicken with Fresh Basil, Rosemary and Thyme

I stuffed the olive oil and herb mixture underneath the skin of the chicken, pulling up the goo and totally ramming it in there like some kind of savage beast.  What the hell?

Also, it was worth the insanity.  Good god, that was good chicken.  I served it with a baked yam and salad with tomato + avocado.  We also whipped up a fresh batch of the omniscient tomato garlic and onion pesto.
