Target last night had some very nice 1" thick petit sirloins for half off--about $4 a lb. I picked up a couple family packs.
Today I mixed up a marinade: red wine vinegar, olive oil, red wine, white pepper, garlic powder, and salt. I went over the steaks with the Jaccard and dropped them in a FoodSaver bag with the marinade, then into the SVS at 125 degrees right before I leave to take the kids to go get haircuts.
125 degrees is too low to Pasteurize them, so no more
1c Unsweetened Almond Milk
1tbsp natural peanut butter
2 scoops vanilla whey LC protein powder
2 tsp unsweetened cocoa
2 packets truvia sweetener
5g leucine powder
1/4tsp NoSalt Potassium salt substitute
Blend and drink immediately. I pour the peanut oil off the top of the natural peanut butter because nobody needs that much added polyunsaturated oil. The peanuts themselves aren't too bad for you, as legumes go, but the oil isn't wonderful.
...and an older gentleman saw me with six pounds of butter in my arms, making my way over to my cart. I saw him wander over to the squeeze bottles of "I Can't Believe It's not Butter" and put one in his basket. I really wish there was an easy way to tell someone "you know, that stuff doesn't taste as good as Butter, is awful for you compared to Butter, and is more expensive."

SO okay...I have a really bad case of "spring fever" (no, not that type you pervert) that seemed to have culminated on Sunday night. Today I woke up with a raw throat and a headache. Then came the the sneezing and my nose is like a fire hydrant with a plug missing. I am fairly sure I know what it is (there was a lot of pollen in the air over the weekend) and I have got the dreaded Kofunso...allergies to some kind pollen. I hate this. So, luckily today was a "day off" (meaning that I work from home)
