Dearest hubby K,
Happy Birthday! I know you’re pretty sensitive for getting a year older that you even had hard time sleeping last night so I understand that you had to sleep in today. And I didn’t mind you woke me up earlier this morning to keep you company until you could fall asleep and even though I couldn’t really go back to sleep, I wasn’t cranky either (Thanks to Paleo/Primal that my body doesn’t get sluggish that easily).
I woke up and had a grand plan for the upcoming week meal to make sure you won’t be food deprived.
But first of all, let me fueled myself with some breakfast which mostly left over Stir fry Kale with bacon and last of purple yam. Oh not forgetting my usual loose leaf tea.
I remembered you liked my Almond Butter Beef I made last time, even though it got burned a bit, so I made that specially for you today.
While doing all of these, I had a sudden crave of Hard Boiled Eggs Stew and decided to make that one as well.
I got all of these ready by lunch time and sorry, sweet potatoes are only here just for the picture-sake But don’t worry, you’re more than welcome to have them if you like.
Did you see the Almond Butter Beef? It’s the center dish and I’m happy this time it turned out PERFECT. I was so happy that you told me you really enjoyed it a lot and couldn’t stop raving about it.
And after lunch, I wasn’t completely done with our meal prep. Remember the giant butternut squash I got couple days ago? I’m planning to make Butternut Squash puree so I cooked them in my pressure cooker. I had to do them twice since my pressure cooker couldn’t contain the whole thing at once.
While waiting for the squash to be done I did quick house cleaning that I’ve been neglecting for a while and I take this as my workout of the day.
Since today was your special day, I decided to go with you to your parent’s house for a family dinner, even though I know I won’t be able to stay truly paleo/primal due. That’s what 80/20 rules in primal are for.
You know I used to like your mom’s homemade deep fried vegetable rice paper wrap but know it’s not Paleo/Primal compliant, so you were willing to split some with me, even though you already had one earlier.
Hope you enjoy your birthday “gifts” from me and thank you for your early birthday gift to me
From your wife
