This weekend I completed my income taxation return and caught up on some work. I also spent some time with Bron and managed to enjoy some delicious meals. If you follow me on instagram you can see how I ate this weekend as well as some of my other activities.
Fishing is popular in Canberra waterways. The lakes are full of carp. They are a pest and regarded as feral. If a carp is caught it is not allowed to be thrown back into the water. From what I’ve seen people go fishing, catch carp and then leave them anywhere they choose.
Green eggs and ham
Bron chose green eggs and ham. The scrambled eggs have avocado in them.
Tonight I breaded (crumbed here in Australia) a nice pork cutlet. Instead of combining the potato and sweet potato I kept them separate and separated them physically in the tower with wilted spinach, mushrooms and spring onions. I also topped the dish with a little asparagus and broccolini. I deglased the pan with a little white wine and reduced some honey and soy sauce to drizzle on the potato tower.
Sorry I didn’t quite have the cutlet completely covered. The image looks a bit untidy. It was incredibly delicious though. I loved it.
This morning we met friends at Pizzazz Café for brunch. I had sausages, an egg, spinach and mushrooms.
For dinner we had roast lamb, Aubergine, pumpkin, parsnip and broccoli.
Dessert was a wonderful creme brûlée and mango.
The most important meal of the day is breakfast. It’s the meal that breaks the fast that occurs while you’re asleep.
This morning I wanted something a bit fancy. I had bacon, egg, toasted English muffin, Philadelphia cream cheese, smoked salmon, spinach and strawberries.
While I was home sick on Friday I was watching Ready Steady Cook and one of the chefs was making a sauce with strawberries. It looked simple so I tried it this morning. I simply boiled a punnet of strawberries in water with a dessert spoon of caster sugar. When the strawberries were soft I pureed them in a food processor.
The strawberry sauce was like having runny strawberry jam with my muffin.
