This morning was a rude awakening. Grace woke up at 7. Her pull up had leaked and her pajama bottoms were all wet. I got her changed and put her back to bed. Just as I was cleaning up, the doorbell rang.
WHO THE HECK RINGS DOORBELLS AT 7 IN THE FRICKIN' MORNING?!
My neighbor, that's who. I don't know what she wanted. I threw a t-shirt on and poked my head around the door with a groggy, "Hullo?"
She wasn't sure if we were up yet.
IS ANYONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND HONESTLY UP AT 7 AM ON A SATURDAY? I mean REALLY!
My poor husband busts his @$$ off all week, and Grace usually sleeps til 8. They need their rest.
*Huff* completely inconsiderate.
When Grace officially got up, I got her fed. I knew breakfast was supposed to be Egg Houses, but I was not entirely together upstairs yet, and grabbed a muffin from yesterday. That held me over for a few hours, and when I was hungry enough (around 11), I made those egg houses.
Super easy, btw. Gut a tomato, crack in an egg, bake. In the mean time, cook yourself some happy delicious pig belly. And voila! Breakfast:
Andy got up closer to noon, and I told him I would like to go back to bed since I had been up since 7. Oh, did I mention we were silly and stayed up till 1:30 last night? We watched The Black Swan (#2 WORST MOVIE EVER ON MY LIST!), then America's Got Talent. We also needed some things from the store so he could transplant my berry bushes. So, being the prince that he is, he took Grace to the store with him and I passed out for a few hours.
When he got home, he helped me prepare my lunch-- "Flying Shrimp Saucers". Now, if you know me well enough, you'll know that if there's shell fish involved (especially shrimp or lobster), I am so there! This was a very filling dish.
Dinner was lamb burgers. For the records, lamb is ridiculously expensive, so this was a rare treat.
The side dish was baked curried cauliflower:
Now you may recall that the government recently released a new and "improved" food diagram to tell us how to eat. My response was this (as was many other a Paleo/Blueprinter):
Now I'm going to show you what I ate for dinner. Ready?
Can you see the similarities? Lamb burgers topped with chili & a side of cauliflower and roasted root vegetables. Maybe I should have included a picture of my 64 oz water bottle as well.
Critter, plants, water. Keep it simple, silly. Your body doesn't need a whole lot for optimal performance. Ditch the grains, you'll feel so much better without them in the long run.
And just for good measure... whenever I pull out the camera, Grace is there. She sees me "cheesing" my food, and demands "Mommy cheese Grace!"
Tonight I looked up with my camera & saw this:
When did you learn to do that? Irregardless, Rock on little Fu. Rock on.
