What I ate today

After yesterday’s amazing morning with Owen Saddler at Dream Cuisine Patisserie and Café, I was on a sugar high for hours. I knew I probably should not have eaten dinner and I certainly didn’t feel like it, but I didn’t want to wake up in the middle of the night feeling hungry.

I ended up with something light. A toasted bread roll with cream cheese and sweet chilli sauce.

I woke up this morning after a sleepless night and after a couple of coffees made myself a hot breakfast.

After breakfast I went for a walk around Lake Ginninderra and shot a few photographs. On the way out I noticed a notice stuck to a wall of the apartment complex I live in.

We’ve been having trouble with some of the residents shopping at the local Westfield shopping mall and bringing their groceries back with shopping trolleys and then abandoning the trolleys on the pathways around the apartment complex. The trolleys weren’t just on the footpath but also in the internal courtyard and walkways.

My neighbours in the place I rent are a mixture of people with a lot of Chinese students who attend the University of Canberra.

At the end of my walk I stopped at the Everbean Espresso Bar in the Westfield shopping mall. While I was there I met one of the owners, Andrew. He’s seen my Instagram feed and wanted to say hello. The coffee at Everbean Espresso Bar is also very good.

While I was there I enjoyed a nice caramel milk shake.

When I got home I made a simple lunch.

A smoked salmon bagel with cream cheese, raw red onion, capers, wasabi sesame seeds and sweet chilli sauce.

After ironing and watching some Star Trek I went back out to the Westfield shopping mall to get some more groceries.

For dinner I made prawns and udon noodles.
