What I ate: October 18, 2011

Breakfast: Gimme lean, egg and cheese English muffin. With 2.5 oz. Gimme lean vegetarian sausage patty on a Barowski's wheat English muffin. It was okay, but the homemade turkey sausage and homemade pork sausage versions are better. Forming the Gimme lean into patties, pre-cooking and freezing it works really well, however.

Lunch: Stir-fry of zucchini and bacon and rice. With 1 small-to-medium zucchini and 1 1/2 slices of bacon.

Snack: A Spicy V-8. And 0.7 oz. peanuts.

I grilled some filet mignon steak, partially cooking it, cooling it, vacuum sealing and freezing it for a future meal.

I also made garlic mashed potatoes, which are normally way too labor intensive to make for one person. Fortunately, they're very good if you vacuum seal and freeze them. Reheating them boil-in-bag works perfectly and the texture is nearly indistinguishable from freshly made. I started with about 3 pounds of Yukon Gold potatoes and ended up with six servings of approximately 7 oz..
