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*, […]

Review – Prima Taste Express

Today, I had to make a return trip to the shop to sort out the missing motherboard accessory. Thankfully, it was easy. My suspicions were right – when they took the mobo out of the box to help me flash the BIOS, they forgot to put all the accessories back in the box. Not a […]

No post tomorrow

Here are the sausages glistening in the oven. That leg reflected on the right side of the oven is my leg. The other legs belong to my younger sister’s […]

Baked asian-style chicken on beans

For dinner tonight, Jac cooked “baked asian-style chicken on beans” from “Real Fast Food”, a feature in the latest issue of Delicious magazine (August 2005, p.147). The chicken was cooked in the oven wrapped in alfoil, and the beans were steamed. It was really tasty, and we’ll definitely cook it again. The recipe calle…

Patience

Most of my computer parts will (hopefully) arrive next week sometime. The CPU has been a pain in the arse to get – most places selling them are out of stock because these X2 3800+ dual cores are in such great demand. Although it’s annoying to have to wait, it makes me feel even more […]

A quick lunch

On the days I work at home, I’m usually too lazy to cook lunch. The prepping of ingredients and the thought of the pile of dirty dishes afterwards just puts me right off. The most I’ll do is microwave leftovers or a tinned meal*. I think though, when my body is feeling deficient in vitamins […]
