Dinner: Balsamic glazed steak with sautéed green beans, toasted almonds, and smashed potatoes. And a half glass of Bota Box malbec. I've had this several times and it's good! This time I skipped the almonds and cut up the green beans after cooking. I also pre-cut the steak and only used a portion of the balsamic glaze. I like it this way, but I think next time I may cook the beef in the sous vide because it was a little over-cooked this time.

Cut up the shrimp and added that to the bowl. Gave the whole thing a generous amount of Cajun seasoning powder. And then topped with the remainder of the sauce from the shrimp package. I didn't use the mango salsa.

Dinner: Mushroom tacos with black beans, corn, and cilantro cream from Real Eats. This was pretty good. It was high in calories (600 cal) so I reduced the number of tortillas from 3 to 2 and didn't use all of the mushroom filling, and served the rest of the corn and beans on the side. I also added some Yellow Bird habanero condiment sauce as it wasn't at all spicy, though the mushroom filling did have a nice flavor.
