Mum’s birthday dinner, The Manila Restaurant

Last Sunday night we all went out for dinner at The Manila Restaurant to celebrate Mum’s birthday. Ever since hearing about how much we enjoyed the buffet there (see posts – savoury here, sweet here) , Mum was keen to try it. She and Dad had never eaten Filipino food before and thought it sounded […]

More of this week’s work lunches

I’m finding some posts harder to write than others, and rather than hold up the posts, I’ve decided to post them out of chronological order. Here’s this week’s work food. As it just so happened, Chad needed to go to the post office on Tuesday at lunch time, and I went along eagerly, knowing full […]

A new noodle place!

EDIT: Chad and I found a new noodle place! It’s Perth Noodle Wok, just off Rokeby Road, on the same side of the street as the post office, sort of diagonally opposite Simon Johnson. It’s a little far up Rokeby Road for our liking – but we’ll definitely grab our takeaway box of noodles for […]

Late night shopping junky dinner

I had a shitty day at work on Thursday and felt really depressed at the end of the day. All I wanted for dinner was a Filet O Fish, Fries and Chicken McNuggets. Jac took me to the shops just so I could get my McDonald’s. I did take a photo of the Filet O […]

Feed your cold a curry!

On Tuesday afternoon I rang Jac from the office. “Would you like me to pick something up for dinner on my way home from work?” I asked. “Yes,” Jac replied at once. “Curry.” “What sort of curry?” I asked. “Any sort, as long as it’s hot and burny.” OK then! I finished work around 4pm […

Work lunches

The potato bake is in the oven and I can hear the sausages sizzling in the pan – yum! I can’t wait for dinner, even though I absolutely stuffed my face with the last of the bolognaise on a big bowl of rice at lunch time! Monday: a cold and rainy day, and on rainy […]

Last week

If you’ve been reading this site since last year you’ll remember Jac’s SVT. Well, last Sunday it happened again. Don’t worry, she’s fine – just like the last time, the doctors at the hospital were able to get her heart rate down to normal – but also like the last time, they couldn’t tell us […]

Friday night dinner

Last night’s dinner: spaghetti bolognaise with wholemeal linguini. Jac made the bolognaise according to how I used to make it for myself: mince, garlic, onions, sliced tinned champignons, chopped fresh tomatoes, tomato paste and tomato ketchup (not a lot of ketchup, just a little – yes, I’m sure some of you are horrified!). No her…
