Snack: 1.0 oz. Sriracha Chex Mix.


Lunch: Barbecued pork sandwich. It's the meat left over from one pork spare rib on a Barowski's wheat hamburger bun, with barbecue sauce. It doesn't look that exciting, but it was tasty!

I went to the grocery store today since I was in a cooking mood. And, oh, did I do some cooking!

The first thing wasn't so much cooking, but dividing 4.7 lbs. of chicken breast tenders into approximately 6 oz. packages, vacuum sealing and labeling.

Cooked then individually vacuum sealed and froze a half dozen extra-spicy Italian sausages.

Seared 3 filet mignon steaks, then vacuum sealed then froze them. I'll finish cooking them in the sous vide - 45 minutes directly from frozen at 132°F.

Made a roasted pork, the old fashioned way, in the oven!

I sliced most of it for roasted pork dinner (4 packages of 5.0 oz. each), 3 packages of stir-fry meat (3.2 oz. each) and a little for Roscoe.

And made some roasted pork jus.

I made a batch of homemade ground beef from chuck steak. I thought I had fixed the meat grinder, but sadly, no. Food processor it was, but it turned out well. One 1 lb. package and two 8 oz. packages. It's quite red because it's very, very fresh and very lean.

Also 1 more pound of ground beef made into four 3.2 oz. packages of taco seasoned ground beef for tacos or nachos.

All of this ridiculous dividing, vacuum sealing and labeling was made much easier thanks to my new kitchen label printer! Okay, it's maybe 30 feet farther to walk to my office and use my desktop computer and the other label printer, but this really is helpful! I print a lot of labels. 33 labels just for today!

Dinner: Tingua poblano and a warm flour tortilla. And 2 glasses of Leese-Fitch California pinot noir.
