What I ate this week

It’s been a busy week. I’ve had a rental inspection and I’ve had to pack up my work space for building maintenance. There’s also been work. There’s also been some fun. I’m still enjoying learning more of what has happened over the last forty years from friends from Stafford Heights State School.

Pulled pork

Last Sunday I made some pulled pork in the slow cooker and rejoiced in the knowledge that I would have plenty left over for lunches.

I had toasted sandwiches made with raisin toast and cheese. Some people questioned my use of raisin toast but I explained that pork loves fruity sweetness. Some queried my use of cheese (Swiss and Gouda) and I explained that it’s a toasted sandwich and so it must have cheese.

I also used some of the leftover pulled pork in Friday night nachos after being inspired by blogger and YouTube star Hilah Johnson.

Salmon

As is tradition I enjoyed Salmon on Monday and Tuesday evening. I have taken a liking to frying ramen noodles and eating them with my salmon.

Cheerios

Wednesday evening was the third State of Origin game between the XXXX Queensland Maroons and the Victoria Bitter New South Wales Blues.

For dinner I had cheerios and macaroni cheese.

It was marvelous to see Cam Smith raise the shield above his head. Queensland have won 10 out of the past 11 contests.

Fish tacos

Thursday was pay day and as is my want I bought lunch. I bought fish tacos from Urban Bean Espresso Bar. They were quite nice. The sweet potato batons were also very nice.

Chicken

I was still hungry on Thursday night and ate two Chicken Maryland pieces served on some pearl couscous along with an avocado.

After the baos I enjoyed a butcher’s board at Marble and Grain with some Wagyu rump, lamb rib, bone marrow, venison sausage, black pudding and chorizo stuffed onion.

Meat pie

I like Garlo’s meat pies. This was a beef and mushroom pie with some Worcestershire Sauce injected into it before cooking and some Havarti cheese laid on top to melt.
