Whole30- Day 21

The weekend is here!!! I had to get the kids out of the house at 8:30 anyway because Liam started swimming lessons at the Y today. I actually enjoy having a reason to get up early on the weekends. I feel like if jumostarts tour day and ensures you don't spend the day lounging on the couch in PJ's. It just makes me feel more productive!  

When we got home, I made a huge, humongous batch of bkuebeeey pancakes for the kids and this veggie stir fry with crumbled Isernio's chicken sausage on top. I used the chub roll today; it's literally a tube of sausage. I just cut off what I wanted and tossed the rest in a ziplock in the fridge. Ridiculously easy! And delicious!!!

Lunch was carrots, a Lara bar and an apple. I wasn't super hungry and was trying to get the kids to the grocery store, which is always a fun weekend adventure!

Tonight sean was out with friends in Seattle. This meant that the nine pound bone-in pork shoulder was my porblem... 😀 I deboned and cut that thing into chunks like a champ! Sean saw my end results and said I cut too much fat off- he accused me of being too OCD with the pork. But I had fun!!! I roasted a bunch of poblanos, garlic, onions, and jalapeños and blended them with cilantro and thyme. It made the tastiest salsa verde ever! It's from my new "Paleo Soups and Stews" book by Simone Miller of Zenbelly. The book is awesome and I've marked about ten recipes to make soon! There's even notes on how to use the pressure cooker for making a lot of them . The roasted tomatillo pork chili verde is a good place to start cooking from the book!
