What I ate: June 11, 2011

Breakfast: Pancakes and bacon. I made a new batch of pancakes today and froze the rest. It wasn't until after I was done cleaning up that I remembered that I had fresh blueberries left over from making blueberry muffins yesterday.

Lunch: Tuna salad. It's on Barowski's wheat bread, which comes in an abnormally wide loaf so it's one slice of bread cut in half but filled with the amount for a whole sandwich.

And I baked a batch of homemade granola.

Dinner: Roast beef, gravy and broccoli.

ate.2011.06.11.d.jpgI previously cooked the roast beef, sliced, vacuum sealed and froze it. I just took a 5.0 oz. package from the freezer and put it into the sous vide at 133°F for 40 minutes to reheat. The rice I reheated for 40 seconds, covered, with a little water, in the microwave. I microwaved the broccoli for 1:10 with a little water, covered.

And I made a batch of gravy from scratch since I didn't have frozen gravy, and fresh gravy is always better. Add 10 oz. of water to a pan. Add 0.4 oz. More Than Gourmet demi base (it's a refrigerated gel) and dissolve. In a 16 oz. Pyrex measuring up add 8 oz. cold water and 1/8 cup all-purpose flour and stir thoroughly. Add the flour slurry to the dissolved stock base. When nearly boiling, lower the heat the medium and stir constantly for at least 5 minutes. Add soy sauce, salt and pepper.
