A topsy-turvy week means no routine and no salmon
So, last week I posted about how I had finished February in my usual eating routine. This week has been a little unusual. A day in Sydney, a dinner out I didn’t end up getting to, and senate estimates put my week out of whack.
Rather than the usual Salmon Monday, I went with Maccas Monday after flying back from Sydney.
Please do me a favour
I think I’ve managed to work out how to use e-mail lists for sending post notifications and newsletters. I’d love it if you would sign up using the ‘form’ in the side bar (if you’re using a laptop or desktop) or at the bottom of the post (if you’re using a mobile device).
By subscribing you’ll receive a personalised e-mail from me and from time to time, apart from the blog post I’ll share something new, like my ideas for a cook book sometime this year.
Tuesday dinner out turned into dinner in
I was meant to go out to dinner on Tuesday night with friends from work (hospital) but I ended up having to do something work related.
I ended up buying a roast chicken from Coles and making a roast chicken sandwich.
Wednesday Senate estimates
Three times a year public servants appear before senators to answer questions about their program areas. In days gone by I’d eat a steak at the Hellenic Club, however, lately, my boss has been taking a few of us out to dinner which has been a very pleasant change.
I have no photographs of dinner, just the large coffee I had in the morning.
I also have a shot of an abandoned building near where I work.
Thursday saw some normality
Lunch was crispy squid from Urban Bean Espresso Bar.
Dinner was leftover chicken on a piece of bread that was smothered in oil and heated in the oven to give it a fried bread effect. I laid the skin over the top to help stop the stringy breast meat from drying out too much. I’m not a fan of breasts, I much prefer thighs.
The best thing about Thursday was that even though it wasn’t pay day, it was the start of the NRL season and the Brisbane Broncos defeated the Cronulla Sharks.
Friday means a day at the hospital, and…
Lunch in the staff tuck shop. I went with roast vegetables. They were very salty.
Dinner was a concoction that included a Chicken Maryland, two mushrooms, lots of Coon cheese, peas, corn and a piece of bread.
How did I cope?
I really prefer routine.
I hope you had a good week. Did you eat well?
Can you do me another favour please
