8/1/2019 - National IPA Day Dinner

https://www.mandatory.com/living/1521941-national-ipa-day-facts#1

I cut the lawn this afternoon, and with temps in the 80's, I celebrated with a cold IPA afterwards.

Tonight's dinner will be a sous vide boneless ribeye, with sides of pasta salad and a house salad.

I cobbled together a couple of weights to hold the bag down from binder clips and fishing sinkers. I just used fishing line, and the weights are nice and compact.

I'm going to sous vide a steak, too. But, I'll pass on the IPA.

I don't have a problem with my steaks floating. Other things float, but not my steaks. Do you vacuum seal your steaks for sous vide?

Well, I know what's for dinner for the Souschef. He'll be happy to know it's National IPA Day.

Too dang hot to heat up the kitchen, but I'll also be making him some homemade split pea soup on the grill side burner to go with his beer.

Rotini with tomato/fennel sauce. Big salads with pickles.
Canned 10 pints of Emiril's sweet pickles today.

As long as he can have beer, SC should make it through this hard time.

You could also make him some Jello shots one evening.

SO skipped dinner tonight as she had been grazing all afternoon. GS and I had grilled kielbasa and tater tots.

I have no use for a vacuum sealer, so I use the displacement method with Ziploc freezer bags. It doesn't quite get all of the air out 100% of the time, so the weights ensure that the meat sinks.

I've read where people use a stack of ping pong balls to submerge the bags, so I can't be too far off.

Anyway, Mrs. T was really impressed with the steak.

I'm a malty sort of beer drinker, so someone else can have my IPA. I had no problem polishing off my supper, though. We're working our way through leftovers. We had salads - I turned mine into a steak & mushroom salad.

That is one fine looking salad, CG.

I grabbed a recently vacuum sealed packet of spaghetti from the freezer this afternoon. While that was heating up, I made a small side salad and toasted some garlic bread.

Marinated two chicken breasts with taco seasoning, lime juice, and EVOO. Sides were riced cauliflower with lime juice and cilantro, and leftover pasta salad. The Elders gobbled that up. Dessert was homemade rhubarb ice cream.
