it all started with whey…

For some really stupid reason that I do not understand I decided to put some protein powder in my smoothie today. I knew it was whey protein. But I knew I needed some protein. But I am allergic to whey. This was a bad decision that then catapulted every other decision I made today into crazy town.
I went to an appointment and then decided to skip my next 3 stops and go to the car dealer to see about turning my leased car in sooner than August, which I can’t do without a metric sh*t ton of fees.
I checked my voicemail and heard that my office heads were having a pizza lunch for all our admin today at noon, so obvi, I decided to skip my noon appointment and go eat pizza, oh and of course I should bring cake. 3 cakes to be exact. Cause one would certainly not be enough. And I ate 3 slices of pizza and a slice of each cake. Yup. Red velvet with cream cheese frosting, lemon creme and strawberry shortcake. What’s that about being allergic to whey? Oh nothing, never mind, I’m fine, I got this. Insert stomach gurgle and carb crash here…
I came home to do some work and my sister in law stopped over and I decided hanging out with her was more fun than working. It was. But I should have been working.
I started a mini-fight with Big Dude. Rectified and all is well, but unnecessary.
Had dinner with the neighbors. Pizza and cheesecake. 2 pieces of pizza and 3 pieces of cheesecake.
And now I sit watching The Vampire Diaries with a gurgly stomach wondering where it all went wrong and realize its all the smoothies fault for not being bacon.

Weekend Update

I took the weekend off from my computer.  I didn’t even check my email on my phone.  I just finished cleaning out my inbox.  It seriously took 2.5 hours.  More coffee please…

We also took the weekend off from Paleo – but not bacon…  Friday night Big Dude and I ate almost a whole deep dish pizza from Costco while catching up on The Americans and The Following.  Have you seen any of those things??  Let me just say, it was worth it.  And if you’re not watching either of those shows, I highly recommend both.  I even got my Dad into them while my parents were staying with us last time.  And I promise, I don’t just love The Following because Kevin Bacon is in it.  😉

Costco Pizza

Speaking of bacon… Have you seen this??  I’m really hoping it’s not an April Fools Joke.

If you see it, please let me know!  If it’s a joke, don’t tell me today.

My neighbor and new BFF Nicole is the manager of Klinger’s Bakery, and sometimes she brings us treats.  Saturday, she brought us a Blueberry Braid Coffee Cake.  I might have eaten 75% of it.  It was soooo good.  Between that and the workout I got at Petra Cliffs, I was out for the count in a serious carb crash from like 4-7 Saturday night.  I had to lie down in bed.  Not sure that one was a smart choice.  I finally got up and went to the store to get the rest of the ingredients for Brunch on Sunday around 8.  Came home with chicken wings for dinner.  I had no energy left to cook real food.

Sunday Brunch was amazing.  We had eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit salad, baked apple french toast and Bacon Coffee Cake with Bacon Caramel Glaze, adapted from this recipe and when I say adapted, I mean I screwed up the recipe somewhere and had to improvise… I forgot to take a pic of the initial meal, but here’s what I had for leftovers at lunch time.

After that we took a trip to Lowe’s to check out patio paver, fire pits and furniture.  It sparked our fancy for a fire.

We raided the construction dumpster a few doors down for the scrap wood and roasted hot dogs and s’mores for dinner.  Best Easter Ever.

Seriously?

Sorry its been a couple days! My bro and his GF were here for the weekend and my parents came too making the sleepover party carry to every room!! The cool part is we had enough beds and bathrooms for everyone!! We ate Paleo all meals. I didn’t take pics because they don’t know I do this… And I didn’t want to give it away, but here’s a rundown for your pleasure…
Gumbo, lots o eggs and bacon, spaghetti squash special sauce, krabby patties, chicken curry noodle bowl, Mexican chocolate pots, creme brûlée (fail), bacon bark, liar bars, & Paleo trail mix… I think that’s it. Everyone left by noon yesterday and I was pooped and didn’t get home till almost 6 so Big Dude brought home sushi. Yeah yah, not Paleo. Didn’t care. Still don’t.
So now we’re up to today… Snow day…
Ok, for reals, I know that about 4:00 my brain shuts off. Sometimes I squeak out some extra time doing mindless tasks, but today I was behind because I spent 2 hours shoveling the driveway and maybe I spent a little too much time on Facebook creating a new Avatar so I could make cartoons about me too. Cause we know my ego needs more attention here. Soooo, maybe I forgot to back up a file I was working on and maybe I lost about an hours worth of research and work. Teach me to work past 5.

Good thing I made that Avatar. She typed sarcastically…
And because it was a snow day for Little Dude, I didn’t get to the grocery store as planned. So dinner was a throw down. I decided to make that Paleo pizza I wanted to try with the dough of the Paleo Garlic Bread. I tripled the recipe. Had to borrow a 1/2 cup of olive oil from my neighbor! I had some bacon, ground pork and chicken andouille sausage. Put some sauce on and then the cooked up meat and put it in the oven for about 40 minutes…

It smelled sooo good.
Totally stuck to the pizza stone, but tasted like heaven, heavy garlicky meaty heaven.

And then my neighbor brought over dessert. Not Paleo. So we will pretend I didn’t eat it and I won’t tell you what it was or how good it tasted. Or how my tummy gurgled after. Yah, no. We can also pretend I’m not watching Snooki & JWoww right now.

Cheat Fail

I love my friends.  They send me the funniest things.  My neighbor sent me this one today.  It’s a good thing she doesn’t have a cat…  cause you never know…

don't wrap bacon

I’m gonna be honest here, Little Dude wanted Pizza tonight and Big Dude was off at the Celtics Game in Boston, so who was I to say no?? At least I said no after 2 pieces.  Ugh.  This is why we don’t eat pizza anymore.  I would post a pic of my food baby belly, but it’s grossing me out, so I’ll save you.  I shoulda had bacon.
