Today is family and community fun day in Canberra. It’s a public holiday so I celebrated by eating well. I also went to Floriade for a second time this year and enjoyed a couple of good long walks.
As much as I love a long weekend and a public holiday I reckon we have too many bunched up at the wrong times. When I’m president of Australia we’ll have one long weekend every month. We’ll observe Australia day and Anzac day on the actual day. People with a religious bent can take personal recreational leave to obverse those days. In my opinion that’s a fairer and better way.
Because it’s Monday I needed to eat salmon so I had it for breakfast.
It was pretty good. I baked it for 16 minutes at 200 °C in my benchtop oven. A soft fried egg does wonders.
After breakfast I went to Floriade to check out the bulbs hoping they were better than when I went there last week. If you like photographs of colourful flowers please visit my post on today’s public holiday trip to Floriade.
Lunch involved some shallow frying of a chicken schnitzel plus some cheese.
I’ve been saving a beef brisket for a public holiday to give me time to cook it slowly enough.
This beef brisket was cooked for 4 hours at 140 °C. Canberra has been unseasonally warm on this public holiday so I made a salad to go with my beef brisket.
I hope you had a happy family and community fun day public holiday. What did you get up to?
