Snack: 1.0 oz. Sriracha Chex Mix. And a Spicy V-8.


I grilled a package of hot dogs. I don't eat them very often, but occasionally I get a craving and it's nice to a grilled Hebrew National hot dog pre-grilled, vacuum sealed and ready to go at any time. It's a little weird grilling at 9:00 AM when it's 30°F outside, but, oddly enough, fairly typical here.

All individually vacuum sealed for easy reheating boil-in-bag or in the sous vide machine.

Lunch: Well I was going to have zucchini and bacon stir-fry but the hot dogs smelled so good I decided to have one of those instead. Reheated for 30 minutes at 150°F in the sous vide, since it wasn't frozen yet. Normally it would be 45 minutes from frozen.

With 3.0 oz. Cascadian organic frozen shoestring French fries, cooked 2 minutes at 160°F in the deep fryer. And a glass of Saranac Adirondack lager.
