Another day, another dollar, right? Thankfully, I just have to get through five more nights until my PTO.
At snack time, I gobbled up a small container of coconut butter. This kept me full until the end of work so I didn’t eat the dinner I packed again.
After work, I picked up my second veggie CSA basket for the week.
Once I got home, I formed and seasoned some grass fed beef burgers that I put into the freezer to harden (it takes about 2 hours to freeze).
I left hubs in charge of vacuum sealing and sous viding the burgers since I’d be sleeping.
My stomach started growling, so I stir-fried some chicken breast with two stalks of green garlic, Sunny Paris seasoning, beet greens, and butter.
I also ate some macadamia nuts and coconut flakes before heading to bed.
When I woke up in the evening, the burgers were already cooking in the SousVide Supreme so all I had to do was prepare the toppings for our burger salads.
I sliced up half an avocado, baked some bacon in the toaster oven…
(which also yielded a container of liquid gold)
…sliced up some red cabbage…
…washed a bunch of salad greens…
…sautéed some sliced onions in butter, and a bunch of mushrooms in bacon grease.
I took the burgers out of the water oven, seared them in bacon grease in a pan, and then charred the sides with my kitchen torch.
Here’s my dinner plate:
After dinner, I removed a couple chicken breasts out of the SousVide Supreme (I dunked them in after I took out the burgers and increased the temperature to 140 F) and packed my meals for work.
Now, I just need find the oomph to get through four more night shifts…
