What I ate: June 10, 2011

Breakfast: Homemade whole wheat bagel with 2.0 oz. lox, 0.8 oz. Organic Valley cream cheese, tomato and red onion.

Lunch: Leftover Mom's mackerel and tofu with rice.

Dinner: Cheeseburger. With organic ground beef, Cabot cheddar cheese, bacon, lettuce and tomato on a Barowski's wheat hamburger roll. With Kettle Chips barbecue potato chips. And Saranac Lager.

I previously grilled the burger and froze it; just 45 minutes in the sous vide at 133°F for a perfect medium rare burger. The only trick is melting the cheese because the burger is exactly 133°F and cheese doesn't really melt at that temperature. I use a propane torch rather than heating up the broiler.

And after making a quick and easy lunch and dinner, I celebrated by cooking off a package of link breakfast sausage.

Two pounds of bacon since it was finally cool enough to use the oven again.

And prepped a package of baby back ribs with dry rub for cooking this weekend.

And a half batch of blueberry muffins. I went a little crazy with the blueberries. And as I'd had a few beers and a very delicious Absolut Brooklyn and seltzer with a splash of cranberry I accidentally forgot the baking powder. They're surprisingly not flat for leaving out the leaving but they're not nearly as puffy as they ought to be.
