What I ate: December 7, 2012

Breakfast: Chorizo breakfast burrito with chorizo, onion, green pepper, jalapeño and egg. Reheat of the filling from Wednesday in a freshly heated tortilla.


Snack: 1.0 oz. Sriracha chex mix.

Cooked and froze 2 pounds of bacon.

Lunch: McDonalds quarter pounder with cheese while I was out running errands.

There is little question that my cheeseburger is better, but I've since come to the realization that my French fries are better, too. Cascadian organic French fries, cooked in the deep fryer, and seasoned with salt, freshly ground black pepper, cayenne pepper and granulated garlic really are so much better, in my opinion.


Cooked and froze batch of homemade spicy pork breakfast sausage patties that I use in my sausage, egg and cheese English muffin breakfast sandwiches.


Individually vacuum sealed and froze some little eye of round "sandwich steaks," uncooked. I use these for Beef Stroganoff and Cheesesteak sandwiches.

Dinner: Meatloaf, rice and gravy. With previously made, vacuum sealed and frozen meatloaf (5.0 oz. serving), reheated in the sous vide 45 minutes at 135°F in the bag.

And 2 glasses of Aguaribay malbec.
