Snack: A bowl of evil popcorn and a Woodchuck winter cider. It's an annual tradition that Mom and Dad get me a container of Popcorn Factory popcorn (plain, cheese and caramel). It's very tasty but hard to stop eating, thus, evil.

Dinner: Grilled salmon and mushroom risotto. The salmon was previously grilled, vacuum sealed and frozen. I reheated it for 45 minutes at 138°F in the sous vide. I made the risotto from scratch, it takes about 30 minutes.
