What I ate: June 12, 2013

Breakfast: Chorizo breakfast burrito with chorizo, onion, green pepper, jalapeño and egg. I made the filling yesterday, and it only takes 40 seconds to reheat in the microwave. Another 40 seconds for the tortilla, in a damp kitchen towel, and that's it.

It's CSA Week #1!


Since I prepared salad greens from the CSA, I needed some salad veggies to go with it. Today it's carrots, celery, green pepper, cucumber and red onion.

Vacuum sealed they'll be good for 5 days, maybe a little more. Incidentally, I have no problems vacuum sealing the wide mouth 16 oz. mason jars in my chamber vacuum sealer, but the 8 oz. and 4 oz. normal mouth jars can be problematic. Flipping the jar upside down works sometimes, at least if there isn't any liquid in the jar, of course. I've since determined that putting on the screw ring fairly tight is the solution. Intuitively I thought it should be loose so the air would come out of the jar, but really, somewhat tight works much, much better. Go figure. No need for the rings after the seal is made, that top is vacuumed on so tight you pretty much need a screwdriver to get it off.

And I made a new batch of homemade hummus since I went to the grocery store today and got some more pita chips. I was intending to go shopping tomorrow morning but there is heavy rain forecast, so I thought I'd get it done today instead.

Dinner: Chicken paprika with rice and broccoli. I haven't made this in a while and I suddenly had a craving while contemplating what to have for dinner tonight.

And 1 glass of Ponga New Zealand sauvignon blanc, since it went much better than my usual malbec.

And, later, 2 glasses of Cholila Ranch malbec.
