Quick clarification: I did not “work out” this weekend. I took 2 days off. (gasp!) I prefer to train about 4 days per week. That’s what I was doing before “Mouth Money,” and that’s what I’ll continue to do to make careful and steady progress in the gym with ample time for recovery and recreation (like yard work!) … Whatever results I share after 30 (or maybe 60…or 90…) days of all-Paleo will be based on nutrition only – all other factors being equal.
Today I made a trip with The Caveman down to the Headhouse Farm Market in Philly. The ulterior motive of this trip across the river was to introduce him to the Mouth-Happy that is Mixto, a latin-inspired, passion-infused example of why I love living here; and why I love having Crossfit friends that hit their workouts hard and then enjoy the heck out of great food. Thanks to Meghan and Anna for introducing me to this place last week.
Brunch: Same as last week – orange-spiced scrambled eggs, chorizo, plantain, and a veggie mix on top. This time they left the potatoes off as requested.
Though we requested otherwise, we were brought a basket of warm bread. Thus began Husband’s whirlwind romance with a tiny yet persistent sparrow.
Spence’s frittata, chorizo and avocado didn’t last through the first stage of bird courtship.
After a leisurely stroll through the farm market and a bit of city driving, we were back home and resumed being boring married people. I took some time to talk to my basil plant, which isn’t weird at all. Really.
Dinner: Delicious pork sweet sausage from Cherry Grove Farm (just pork and spices), grilled along with a few zukes sprinkled with EVOO and garlic salt. A cross-sampling of farm market tomatoes drizzled with EVOO and fresh basil rounded out the meal.
As if Sunday couldn’t get any better, Mad Men is back. Peggy seems to have really come into her own! (“Jooohhhn!”)
