If you read this blog, you'll probably notice that I rarely have what would be a standard American meal with a salad, vegetable, starch and meat. It's not because I wouldn't like to have all that, but it's way too much food and I'd gain a lot of weight! I thought I'd try an experiment and have some element of a "normal" dinner as my afternoon snack.

Snack: Caesar salad with romaine lettuce, Drew's Caesar dressing, Olivia's garlic and herb croutons and anchovies. This was really delicious!

Dinner: Roast prime rib of beef and baked potato. It's actually leftovers from last night's dinner at Angus and Ale, that I vacuum sealed and froze, not anticipating that I would eat today. But reheated in the sous vide, 45 minutes at 133°F it came out perfectly. Served with a freshly baked salt and olive oil-rubbed baked potato with butter and sour cream. The other condiment cup is horseradish for the beef.
