I went kind of crazy cooking this morning. That's a new batch of chili, seven 12 oz. servings, of which six are vacuum sealed and frozen. The thing about this recipe is that involves a pretty crazy amount of chopping. That's a 12" x 18" cutting board!

Food on the grill: 3 burgers, 2 filet Mignon steaks and lemon, lime and chile marinated grilled shrimp. All vacuum sealed and frozen. The burgers and steaks are only seared; they'll be finished in the sous vide.

And finally three servings of baby back ribs with homemade barbecue sauce, just out of the smoker.

Snack: 0.8 oz. potato chips and dip.

Dinner: Baby back ribs, corn and a whole wheat and oat roll. And a Saranac Lager. I didn't eat two of the ribs as they were much meatier than I anticipated. And very delicious and tender - the dry rub, sous vide then smoke technique really works well!
