I’ve had an interesting week. Work has been busy and on Wednesday I flew to Perth for work. I heard from Ms18 that the Queensland state gymnastics competition has been going well. She did well on the first day and I’m hoping her second day of competition finishes with even better results.
In terms of sleep, it hasn’t been great. Despite my CPAP machine I seem to be going through a period of early waking and an inability to return to sleep. My tinnitus has been worse and I’m not sure why. I’m quite careful not to expose myself to loud sounds and before bed I try to observe good sleep hygiene. I guess I should try to do more exercise. That always seems to be a good option.
So this week I’ve enjoyed some nice food.
On Monday I had leftover slow cooked beef, speck and spam for lunch
For Monday dinner I enjoyed some greens with a piece of baked salmon
Tuesday breakfast was scrambled eggs Gordon Ramsay style
Tuesday lunch was leftover corned beef congee
Tuesday dinner saw me flake some baked salmon and enjoy it with noodles
I had sugar and cinnamon doughnuts for Wednesday breakfast
My Wednesday lunch was a repeat of Monday, this time with different reading material
A friend at work likes to share with me when Urban Bean Espresso Bar is selling really nice cheesecake. This photograph shows three things I really like. A Queensland flag, a photograph of a FA-18 Hornet which was a gift from the CO RAAF Tindal and Squadron 322 and of course a caramel almond toffee cheesecake.
I was in Perth on Thursday morning and stayed at the International on the water hotel.
On Thursday night I had room service for dinner
Friday night was an easy one with leftover corned beef quinoa rice congee
On Saturday I had a leisurely breakfast of cheese and chives scrambled eggs with a cup of coffee
Saturday much was tinned pink salmon with an avocado on Vita-Weat with cream cheese
Saturday evening I had a lovely chicken giblet congee with black fungus
Sunday lunch was a chicken breast hot pie
This dish is known as “Jacqui” after my friend Jacqui
So it’s been a pretty yummy week in food. None of this is really helping my waistline. Oh well, I will work on that later.
