I also defrosted the vacuum sealed gravy in the sous vide, though I finished it in a saucepan on the stove because frozen gravy needs to be boiled (gently) again to restore the proper texture, which is why you can't reheat gravy in the sous vide or microwave. I boiled the very nice thin baby asparagus for 3 minutes.

Dessert: 1 square of Lake Champlain dark chocolate raspberry truffle. And a glass of Tiasta Malbec.
