You all have nothing on me. I ate the rest of a huge piece of prime rib for breakfast with a side of scalloped potatoes. I tried but it was too big for me to manage it in one meal. It was 3.5" thick and at least 3.5lbs before I cooked it. It filled the whole plate to the point where there was no room for anything else. I got two very full meals out of it, shared with the felines (Yes, they're spoiled.) plus I'm making beef vegetable barley soup later tonight with the scraps. :P No, I didn't record it's existence. I was too busy stuffing my face with it, grin...

Being a student on semester holidays means a totally new level of slothfulness.
My friends and I were as slothful during terms as the breaks, Mr Fox, which is why we were more likely to be hit by lightning than get invited by faculties to do postgrad. :-D

I saw your post in another thread, VoR, it's clearly 34kg of photography gear and eight cans of spam!

LOL. They're beauties and I'd gladly have them if Lily and Loki and the park I live in would allow it. Alas, we have a 2 pet per house limit and the dogs have to be medium sized or smaller. Lily is none too fond of pups besides. She's never been menaced by one in her life but she can't stand dogs. Last time my one bro brought his black lab she chased that poor animal under a chair and he didn't come out until she left the room. (Not the first time one of my cats has done that to one of his labs. My last black furball did the same with his first one, terrified him and chased him right under a kitchen table chair.) Dog is huge, at least 6X her size but she didn't hesitate to show him who's boss. Loki, well he's very territorial and defensive of Lily. He hasn't met but one dog yet but it didn't really go well. He growled like a Rottweiler. He was in a carrier at the vet's at the time going for his checkup. It was probably a good thing he was cooped up because I don't think he likes canine any better than Lily does...

Trippers pack mates growing up were, a 100 pound American Bull Dog, a Red Nose Pit Bull and Dreamer, and none of them would play with him. The bull dog probably would have eaten him given a chance. His only play buddy was Fat Fuzzy the 40 pound cat. The two of them got along just fine,

The only thing I really get any iron out of eating is steak. The iron in veggies and pills my digestive system just doesn't absorb very well. I can get some out of beans apparently but it's not as effective as eating meat and I have a chronic problem with low iron and platelet counts. So about every ten days or so I go get the biggest piece of meat I can afford and chow down. Usually it's something cheap like top sirloin but every once in a while I splurge and get something else. The steak I got the other night actually only cost about a buck more per pound than the top sirloin. It was on sale this week. It was just too nice looking to leave it there and boy was it GOOD! :P

Anyone here do sous vide cooking?
Amazon had a promo code for $100 off the $200 Anova unit the other day.
Mine comes today, but being a serial griller/barbecuer I'm still on the fence about even using it.
Plans were to turn tough, cheaper priced beef into tender beef, searing over charcoal on a grill afterwards of course.
I'd still pan fry or grill my Spam though. :P
