Usual breakfast smoothie of frozen blueberries, protein powder, Cosco liquid vitamins and cold pressed flax oil. Tastes just like blueberry frozen yogurt and is packed full of nutrition.

Lunch is looking like wild salmon salad made with homemade mayo, capers, onion, pickle and a touch of dijon mustard to cut the 'fishiness'.

It's easier than you might think.
My "cave" is a dorm frig in the basement with a temp controller on it. Plug controller into outlet, plug frig into controller, with controller probe inside frig. Set desired temp range on controller, which turns frig on and off as needed. At cheese cave temps, the frig runs very little. Humidity control needs a little more observation and care, but is easily handled with a bowl or two of water (often none at all, depending on how many cheeses you have in the cave). You can buy a little hygrometer (keeps track of relative humidity) for $20 at a cigar store.

I took a chicken breast out of the freezer to cook for supper. I forgot it on the counter, I meant to stick in the the fridge. Now it is not only thawed but a bit warm. Should I eat it? Is it safe if I cook it?

According to one poster on the forum, you don't have any choice...

Hey, you guys are causes, my choice is just an effect!

I'm leaning towards not eating it. Food poisoning doesn't sound like fun. But if cooking kills the bacteria why waste it? Isn't sitting out before cooking a spoilage problem, not a bacteria problem as cooking will kill salmonella and campylobacter? Plus, I don't know what to have for supper if the chicken is bad.

As one who has poisoned himself regularly by eating questionable food, I would say throw it out. Just last week I woke up in the middle of the night and puked for 1/2 hour because I did not heed this.

I threw it out. I found some information that indicates that cooking even to 160 does not kill every last bacteria so if you had a fine bloom of bacteria there may be enough left to cause illness.

I didn't even cook it for the old dog. I'll say, it was tough tossing this into the trash.

For supper instead of eating possibly bad chicken I thawed a piece of salmon in the nuke and put some feta cheese on it. Had a salad that was boring. The salmon wasn't very good either. 870 calories for the day. Topping it off with a glass of wine--add a 100 calories to the total. Kind of low. I'll probably be hungry tomorrow.

We did the same thing with a piece of leftover salmon and ours was lousy also. Normally, I like leftover salmon in salad but this batch was blah.

Here's the simple way I usually cook salmon: starting with a fillet, I remove skin and then slice it into "chicken mcnugget" size pieces, and fry in butter and perhaps some garlic. This way there's lots of surface area to get a little crispy and buttery.

Last evening and much of today are devoted to a particularly outstanding loaf of sourdough rye bread I made yesterday afternoon.
