Breakfast: Chorizo breakfast burrito with chorizo, onion, green pepper, jalapeño and egg. Reheat of the filling I cooked on last night in a freshly heated tortilla.

Snack: 1.0 oz. Sriracha chex mix.


Lunch: Japanese-style crushed hamburger with onions, garlic and ginger. I made this with the ground beef left over after portioning burgers.

Grilled, vacuum sealed and froze a batch of quarter pound (4.0 oz. before cooking) hamburgers. These I made from 90/10 ground beef instead of buying frozen pre-made patties. There's a serious conflagration when grilling the frozen patties because of all of the fat burning off, but grilling these is completely uneventful. And they're so much larger after cooking!

Cooked and froze 2 pounds of bacon.


Baked a batch of homemade blueberry muffins. That's a half dozen, since I eat one per week, and they would be in the freezer too long if I made a whole dozen.

Snack: 1.0 oz. tortilla chips with homemade guacamole. I vacuum sealed and refrigerated the guacamole previously.

Dinner: Chana Masala with rice. And a Saranac pale ale. I previously vacuum sealed and froze the chana masala, and reheated it for 18 minutes boil-in-bag from frozen.
