It feels like it’s been weeks since I last posted on my blog. The last week has been busy at work and I needed to bring work back to my place this weekend to finish some of it off. I spent Friday at Queanbeyan for a meeting at the Australian Civil-Military Centre and was hanging out at lunch time to visit the Central Cafe and have the mixed grill again.
In the end we had sandwiches with plates for vegetarians, piscatarians, halal, gluten-free and other. It’s a good thing I’m no longer doing a lower carbohydrate, higher protein approach to eating.
On the Friday night I went with Bron to the Canberra Southern Cross Club at Jamison for dinner. I was hungry and ordered some deep-fried crumbed calamari and a rare eye fillet. Afterwards Bron prepared a brownie with caramel and ice cream.
On Saturday we thought we’d succumb to the advertising and try a new burger McDonald’s has been advertising. The Lamb burger which is meant to be made with Australian lamb. It was okay. It was large and the pattie was a little on the dry side. The red onion lingered on the breath too.
For dinner last night Bron made pork rashers with hoisin sauce and a hazelnut mini-tortes, one with cherry jam and cream and the other with salted caramel.
This morning I woke up to fathers day and spoke with my father and received a call from my daughters. For a Spring morning it was pretty cold here in Canberra.
For lunch Bron took me to a Yum Cha lunch at the Dumpling Inn in Macquarie.
We love Yum Cha at the Dumpling Inn. Today the service was a little slow but they were really busy. We ate and ate and ate and then were happy
This afternoon I had to do some work and wanted something light for dinner.
I made a burger and then had one of Bron’s left over mini-tortes made of hazelnut meringue, chocolate, cherry jam and cream with a flake.
The burger was made with lean beef mince, jam, avocado, lettuce, cheese and barbecue sauce.
It’s been a good weekend
I hope you had a good one too.
