Sunshine blogger award and pineapple pork
Please check out Purdey Makes 6; what a great blog and “Mummy” has six children. That’s an inspiration! I can’t imagine what meal planning and meal preparation must be like.
- 500 grams Pork rashers
- 1 packet Microwave rice
Get the pork rashers to room temperature before cooking
Heat the oven to 200 °C (400 °F)
In a small nonstick frying pan arrange the rashers rind up and put pineapple pieces in between
Add some pineapple syrup or juice to the frying pan but not too much. Keep the rind free of touching the liquid.
Put the frying pan into the oven and cook for 1 hour
When the pork is cooked remove it from the oven and allow to rest on absorbent paper towel for 10 minutes
While the pork is resting, cook the microwave rice according to the product instructions
Cut the pork into strips across the grain
Prepare a bowl by placing the rice in first, then the pineapple pieces followed by any remaining juice from the frying pan. Finally add the pork and garnish with some spring onion.

Sunshine blogger award
Okay, so I’m going to do this in two parts. Part one is answering questions from Purdey Makes 6. Part two will be the nomination of other bloggers and I will share the rules. I’ll do that in another post in the near future.
11 questions from Purdey Makes 6 for the Sunshine blogger award
Other than blogging, what do you spend your day doing?
I work full time. On Monday to Thursday, I put in 40 hours at the Australian Government Department of Health as a Principal Medical Advisor. On Fridays, I practice medicine as an Honorary Visiting Medical Officer in ACT Pathology. I’m a specialist microbiologist. On weekends, I like to walk around Lake Ginninderra, watch YouTube videos, listen to podcasts, record my Medical Fun Facts podcast and write posts in my other two blogs, viz., Yummy Lummy and My Thoughts and Stuff. I also like watching Star Trek and other TV shows on Netflix and Stan.
What is your favourite blogger?
That’s a really difficult question. I like so many bloggers. There are Canberra based food bloggers, Australian food bloggers (like Lorraine Elliott), artists and creative cartoonists like Jennifer Paetsch and fabulously creative writers like Just Me. Some of these are my favourites for different reasons. I also like finding new bloggers to read.
Who inspires you in life?
I’m inspired by a few people. A former boss in the Northern Territory of Australia is, in my opinion, the best leader I’ve had the privilege to work with. I have a few close friends who also inspire me. One is a writer of amazing poetry. Another is an artist. Most of all, I’m inspired by people who love life and live it while remaining grounded. If they are good humoured and good natured, that is even better. Apart from that, the service women and men of the Australian Defence Force inspire me.
3 desert Island foods?
Coconut, fish and limes. The coconut is good for chewing and the coconut water for hydration and something different to water. The fish will give me protein and I can eat it with the coconut milk I make from the coconuts. The limes will prevent scurvy while I try to figure out an escape or wait for rescue.
What is your best trait?
Calm under pressure.
What is your worst?
Not thinking about the feelings of others when I say things, especially when I think I’m trying to be humorous. My insensitivity is my greatest failing and will ultimately be my downfall I think.
What perks you up on a bad day?
A friendly word from a friend who may be near (local) or far away (overseas). I love that technology means all my friends can be in my smartphone whether it be a text message or a call.
What item could you not live without in life?
My iPhone and a battery charger!
Who puts the biggest smile on your face?
Close friends and family. Usually for different reasons.
What’s your signature dish if you are cooking for friends and family?
Salmon and some sort of salad. I like to pan fry the salmon.
What’s your biggest dream for the future?
That my daughters are happy adults and that I can travel the world when I retire.
Sorry, Mommy Blogger if I didn’t answer those questions exactly as you might have expected.
