What I ate: March 12, 2011

Breakfast: A homemade blueberry muffin and 3 slices of Vermont Smoke and Cure bacon (both previously frozen).

Lunch: Sausage and green pepper stir-fry with rice. There's one green pepper and one Vermont Smoke and Cure breakfast link sausage in the serving.

I baked a batch of a dozen delicious whole wheat and oat dinner rolls.


And started a batch of waffle batter for breakfast tomorrow. It's a yeast-risen recipe and it has to sit overnight. I fairly significantly modified the recipe, so we'll see how it works tomorrow.

And I wrote a new recipe for cinnamon raisin walnut wheat bread (old recipe) that I'll try out tomorrow. But today I started with a poolish (whole wheat flour, water and yeast) that will rise at room temperature for 3 hours and then retard in the refrigerator overnight.

Dinner: Delmonico steak with loaded baked potato.

The steak was an experiment in cooking a steak in my Cuisinart 3-in-1 griddle/grill/panini-press, which was not entirely successful. The steak was still tasty but my indoor steak post explains what happened.

And 2 glasses of Sebastiani Zinfandel.

Dessert: 1 square of Lake Champlain dark chocolate raspberry truffle.
