I had another big day at work. I wanted something I could cook while continuing to work from home. I still have a teleconference tonight at midnight so I didn’t want to muck around a lot.
I chose a small piece of belly pork, a small sweet potato and an avocado. I turned the sweet potato into a mash with butter and Gorgonzola cheese. I scored the pork with a sharp knife and rubbed in salt, a little sugar and some pepper.
The last few nights I’ve splurged on dinners with lots of things I’ve been trying to avoid to lose some weight. Tonight I returned to my weight loss meal. Chicken thigh meat and a couple of vegetables.
I soaked a chicken thigh fillet in butter milk for 20 minutes. This was then egg washed and then floured. The flour also had salt, pepper, mustard, curry powder, and paprika added. I did this twice and then placed the coated chicken into the refrigerator for a few minutes while I heated some vegetable oil in my wok.
I cooked the chicken for about five minutes per side. In addition I had a couple of sweet potato discs deep fried. Along with the chicken and sweet potato I enjoyed some avocado and cabbage.

On an interesting note, whenever I eat paprika I have very vivid dreams. If I go to sleep in a bad mood I have night mares, if I go to sleep happy I have happy dreams or at least dreams reflecting what I’ve been doing that evening but in positive tones. On Sunday night I had watched The Big Bang Theory and that night dreamt I was debating Sheldon Cooper about my favourite subject, viz., pus associated with soft tissue infections.
