Lunch: I had pizza and salad at Cannoli Joe's (4715 U.S. 290, Austin, TX‎ - (512) 892-4444‎) for lunch as part of my Defensive driving class with Happy Time Defensive Driving.

Dinner: Two days ago I had prepared pork baby back ribs and bacon (just wanted to see what that would be like) in two separate bags to be cooked at 68°C for 24 hours. I had seasoned the ribs with a simple rub of salt, brown sugar, and cayenne pepper before sealing it in the bag. We were out last night, so I ended up cooking the ribs and bacon for an additional 24 hours. I wasn't happy with the texture of either of the meats - they bordered on mushy (too long in the water bath) and were too strongly flavored by the salt and sugar (too long in the water bath).
