What I ate: June 16, 2012

Breakfast: Pancakes and bacon. I cooked a fresh batch today and froze the extras.

Snack: 1.0 oz. Sriracha chex mix.

Lunch: Sausage and green pepper stir-fry and rice.

Snack: 0.7 oz. pretzels and a Saranac Summer Ale. It's a little on the light side, almost a pilsner, but it would be pretty refreshing on a hot summer day.


Dinner: A salad with lettuce from CSA Week #1 and CSA Week #2 with my vacuum-sealed prepared vegetables (cucumber, carrot, celery, mushrooms and radishes from CSA Week #2), Olivia's croutons and Amy's cowgirl ranch dressing.

And a cheeseburger on a Barowski's whole wheat hamburger bun. With 4.0 oz. (before cooking) of homemade lean ground beef, grilled, frozen and reheated in the sous vide (45 minutes at 132°F from frozen) then browned in the deep fryer, 30 seconds at 160°F. And 3.0 oz. Cascadian frozen organic French fries, heated for 2 minutes at 360°F in the deep fryer, from frozen, and seasoned with salt, pepper, granulated garlic and cayenne pepper.

And 2 glasses of 90+ pinot noir.

I don't obsess over calorie counts, but this was surprising to me. I sort of figured that ranch dressing would be higher in calories than regular Italian dressing. But, at least when you compare Annie's Natural organic cowgirl ranch to Kraft Tuscan house Italian, the ranch is less at 110 compared with Italian at 130. Huh.
