This afternoon we went to see The Avengers. It was all I expected and more. A great movie. It’s well worth seeing if you like that genre.
For dinner I brought out my trusty pressure cooker and put together a beef curry. I was hungry because I didn’t eat lunch after a reasonable sized breakfast.
In the pressure cooker went onions, garlic, ginger, tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, celery, pepper, chili flakes, diced rib fillet steak and curry powder. I added a little white wine and some water. I brought the cooker up to pressure and let the valve dance for thirty minutes. I let the cooker decompress naturally and served the curry with some noodles.

It was a good day
This morning we went to Seasalt Dining for breakfast. We’d been here before for dinner and quite enjoyed it.
This morning was reasonably cool in Canberra so a warm place and a good breakfast was called for. I was keen on eggs and posted this on instagram as soon as I saw the menu.
Bron and I had Eggs Benedict with bacon and coffee.

The eggs were soft and the yolk ran free on cracking the white membrane. The toast was nice and not too stiff.
I’d rate the experience 6.5 out of 10. The service was friendly but a little disorganised. The orders didn’t come out together and there was a sense of confusion to the place. The food was okay but the menu was a very standard breakfast/brunch list. There was nothing special to it. I’d go again with a crowd if better Canberra venues were not available.
As I said to Bron, her Eggs Benedict are close to an order of magnitude better.
