What I ate: August 16, 2012

Breakfast: Bacon, egg and cheese English muffin.

Lunch: Hot dog. This was not my planned lunch, but I drove past a hot dog truck on the way home from running errands so I was in the mood for a hot dog. But this is my own grilled hot dog on a whole wheat hot dog bun, with Kettle Chips barbecue potato chips.

Snack: 0.7 oz. peanuts.

Broke down a small-ish (3.4 lb.) chicken. This is a "natural" chicken, no hormones, no antibiotics, vegetable feed, but my grocery store only carries conventional parts so I prefer this way, even though it's more work. Also, starting with a smaller chicken gives a normal 6 oz. portion size instead of those mutant large breasts when you buy chicken breasts.

All vacuum sealed and ready for freezing:

Made a batch of homemade pizza dough, three 6.0 oz. balls of dough, enough to make three 12" pizzas.

With the chicken carcass from the chicken I broke down earlier, plus some celery, carrot and onion I made chicken stock and chicken soup.

The soup has 3.4 oz. of the chicken. Both have about 12 oz. of stock. Here they are vacuum sealed and ready to freeze.
