What I ate this weekend

Well this post won’t inlcude everything I’ve eaten this weekend. I went to a party on Saturday night. A fortieth birthday of a friend. The food was amazing and I didn’t capture any photographs (except one piece if the cake). We even roasted these huge Costco marshmallows outside. I consumed vast quantities of tender chicken wings, seafood tagine, lamb tagine, a lemon curd cake and an orange cake. It was awesome.

Saturday started with an English muffin topped with a fried egg on one side and English marmalade on the other half. I then went for a walk around Lake Ginninderra and stopped at Heather’s House of Cake for cake and coffee. I enjoyed a peanut caramel chocolate cupcake. For lunch I made myself a piece of rye bread topped with avocado and tomato. In the afternoon I tried to make my own Vegemite chocolate with Nutella and Vegemite on a VitaWeat biscuit. It wasn’t too bad.

On Sunday morning I burnt by palate and tongue on a salmon cake on a poppyseed bagel. I snacked on some Lindt Arabica throughout the afternoon while my Camargue Organic Red Rice chicken congee was cooking in the slow cooker.

I love me a fried egg. This English marmalade is nice chunky bits in it too.

Not as good as Cadbury Vegemite chocolate though.

This is what burnt my palate. I should always leave things to cool down.

Best congee so far.

I hope you had a good weekend. Mine was good up until this morning when I burnt my palate. Gee it hurts. I hope it heals quickly.
