Lunch: Beef with bean sprouts and scallion stir-fry.

Cleaned and cut up a chef's prime cut pork roast. Part of it thinly sliced for miso marinated pork, then vacuum marinated for several hours.

The two large pieces seasoned, vacuum sealed and cooked in the sous vide, 90 minutes at 153°F.

Then cooled, sliced, and packaged into 6 packages of 3.2 oz. each with some left over for Roscoe.

The pork roast was on sale for $ 7.80 (normally would have been $ 9.30), but it made 1 dinner and will make 6 lunches!


Broke down a whole chicken. This was pretty large for a "natural" (antibiotic and hormone free, vegetable feed), 5.94 lbs.

I vacuum sealed and froze the 2 breasts and breast tenders for future meals.

Vacuum marinated the legs and thighs on Brooks' chicken marinade for barbecued chicken. That will marinate overnight and I'll grill it tomorrow.

And used everything else to make chicken soup. First, roasting for 30 minutes at 400°F (picture before roasting).

ate.2014.12.17.c6.jpg
I made the soup in the pressure cooker with onion, celery, carrot, garlic, bay leaf, and black peppercorns and 64 oz. water. The actual cooking cycle is 30 minutes, though it takes quite a bit longer than that to heat it up and let it cool down and the pressure dissipate.

Cooling in the sink.

ate.2014.12.17.c11.jpg
Separating out the good meat to add to the soup packages. I got 9.7 oz..

ate.2014.12.17.c12.jpg
All packaged. 2.4 oz. of meat and 16 oz. of chicken stock in each package, vacuum sealed and frozen.

ate.2014.12.17.c13.jpg
The chicken was $ 14.79 but it will probably make 6 dinners and 4 lunches!


Snack: 0.8 oz peanuts. And, later, 2 senbei (Japanese rice crackers).

ate.2014.12.17.s2.jpg
Dinner: Miso marinated pork and rice. And a half glass of 90+ New Zealand sauvignon blanc.

ate.2014.12.17.d.jpg
And, later, 2 glasses of Banrock Station shiraz.


Weight at beginning of the day: 126.8 lbs.
Weight at the beginning of the next day: 125.0 lbs.
