Grocery shopping day today.

I got a package of natural, no-antibiotic, no-hormone, vegetable-feed chicken breast. The package was $ 8.53 and contained 3 breasts. But they were huge! I divided it down to 5 servings ranging from 4.3 to 7.2 which is a much more reasonable serving size for dinner for one. And a much better price-per-dinner, too! Vacuum sealed and ready for the freezer.

I got a filet mignon steak. It was expensive, but it will certainly be delicious. The steak was $ 12.59 for 0.66 lbs. But I cut it in half to make two dinners, so that helps. I grilled, vacuum sealed and froze them. They'll be finished in the sous vide.

I also got a large value pack of 90/10 ground beef, 3.82 pounds for $ 17.15, but it had a $ 5.00 instant-off coupon, so that was a good deal.

I made 4 large (6.0 oz. before cooking) grilled hamburgers with some of the ground beef, pictured here with the steaks.
