Soft, rubbery, crispy, spongey…delicious

I’ve written about this before – how I love the contrasting textures and tastes of a McDonald’s Big Breakfast… the soft, bland scrambled eggs; the spicy, rubbery sausage (perfect accompaniment to bland eggs!); the ultra-crispy, salty hash brown; the spongey (with crispy edges) english muffin, with sticky strawberry jam. And …

Review – Yoko’s Gourmet Cafe

On Wednesday, L and I went to Yoko’s Gourmet Cafe for lunch (sorry, M! All three of us can go when you are back in the office again!). This was my second time at Yoko’s. You order at the cashier. There’s lots of pictures and info to look at while you’re standing there – it’s […]

The post-interview feeling

Last week, I applied to be a casual examination supervisor at the university. Actually, I have applied to join the casual examination supervisor pool. I’ve just come back from my interview. Initially when I saw the ad I wasn’t too sure just how serious this whole application thing was. I didn’t think they would give […]

Dinner, 29/08/2005

Here is the encore of the baked asian-style chicken on green beans (recipe from from “Real Fast Food”, a feature in delicious magazine August 2005, p.147), except this time instead of plain old green beans I stir-fried some mixed vegetables (bok choy, stringless beans, baby corn, mushrooms, onion and loads of garlic, with oyster sauce [……

Lunch, 29/08/2005

Combination rice, AU$6.50: char siu (barbecue pork), hainan chicken and steamed choy sam on hainan chicken rice. I drizzled extra soy sauce over the chicken. This came with a bowl of hot clear chicken broth too. The chicken was boneless breast; I would’ve preferred dark meat on the bone, which has more flavour and is […]

Review – The Shamrock

We went to the Midland Military Markets this afternoon, after visiting a mate who lives out that way. I had only eaten a small sausage roll for lunch (which was really lovely, but just not big enough), so I was starving and hoped to grab a bite to eat at the Markets. We needed to […]

Dinner, 26/08/2005

Tonight’s dinner was pad thai, with chicken mince and little prawns, which are hidden in this photo. I’m very tired, so all I shall say is it was delicious. You can decide what you think from the picture.

Computer and chooks

Good news – all my computer bits arrived yesterday. One little box (the cpu) and one big box of goodies (power supply, graphics card, dvd burner, windows xp pro, hard disc drive, memory and tv tuner card, all neatly and securely packed). Very exciting. I carefully went through everything to make sure I’d received exactly […]

Dinner, 24/08/2005

Tonight’s dinner: panfried hoki fillets, just dipped in flour seasoned with salt, pepper and herbs; orange mash (boiled pumpkin and carrots, mashed together); green beans (frozen ones tonight); and special potatoes – sliced and boiled until cooked but still firm, and then finished off in the pan with fried onion, garlic and egg. The ora…

More SPAM, and the liver cleansing diet

Remember that recent home-cooked lunch of fried SPAM and stir-fried lettuce? Well, here is a photo of my dinner from last night, made from that same tin of SPAM (there is still another snack’s worth in the fridge – good for a homemade SPAM and egg McMuffin perhaps). Jac is on the liver-cleansing diet now*, […]
