What I Ate: December 29, 2009

Lunch: Tired of cleaning the grooves in our hot pot (our hot pot has a non-stick finish, but the interior is ridged like a grill pan so thorough cleaning requires going into each groove), Tina decided to try to put together her own (superior) hot pot with a stainless steel clad pot set on a portable induction cooktop. This worked like a charm, providing her a pot that was easy to clean as well as digital temperature controls.

Dinner: I grilled up bacon cheeseburgers made from ground ostrich meat, three year aged sharp cheddar cheese, and hickory smoked uncured bacon. I also grilled up zucchini. These were excellent, but the ostrich meat was a bit lean for my taste. Tina spread some chopped avocado on and took the burger to the next level. As a meat, ostrich has the texture of lean beef but with less flavor. Overall, it's a fairly mild tasting protein.
