What I ate: November 15, 2011

Breakfast: Bacon, egg and cheese English muffin. With 3 slices of bacon, an organic egg and Cabot extra sharp cheddar cheese on a Barowski's English muffin.


Lunch: Stir-fry of green pepper and homemade spicy sausage


Beverage: A mug of hot apple cider, possibly with a small amount of brandy.

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

Dinner: Shepherd's pie. With roasted lamb, gravy, peas, corn and mashed potatoes. 

I had previously frozen the lamb roast and mashed potatoes and due to a logical flaw it didn't occur to me until it was too late that even though the casserole is baked the potatoes still need to be cooked boil-in-bag first, otherwise the texture turns out wrong. Oops. It was still very tasty. 

I also still haven't figured out a way to attractively plate shepherd's pie, or at least the way I make it with roasted meat and lots of gravy, because it has absolutely no structural stability. I think I'm going to cook it in individual rarebit dishes, or preferably something a little deeper. 


And 2 glasses of Don Cano malbec.


Dessert: 2 strips of Green & Black's ginger dark chocolate bar.

And 1.0 oz. potato chips and dip. I got rid of the remaining potato chips, dip and Doritos because no good comes from having them in the house.
