I ate leftovers for breakfast, another sandwich for lunch, and more leftovers for dinner, plus some guacamole (had 3 avocados that I had to use). Still have more leftovers!

I love a good Porto. I prefer bottle aged to barrel aged. I can make a dessert just out of a good vintage Porto.

I don't know much about Porto. I don't even remember the name of the one we have and I don't know if it is bottle or barrel aged. It's just the one our Portuguese friend recommended and it's lovely.

Mostly weigh, occasionally measure, rarely guestimate. The only thing in that last list that wasn't weighed is salt but I know from repeated experiments what my "one finger pinch" weighs so it was a pretty educated guess. I actually cooked twice that amount of vegetables so just halved my weighted quantities.

When I started weighing my food a couple of years ago it seemed a major pain and remember writing that it took longer to log than it did to cook, eat, and clean-up afterward. But it's the only way of managing diet that works for me so I'm stuck with it. Like everything else, it becomes a skill that improves with practice and now adds very little to cooking time.
