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 […]

Dinner 17/08/2005

We had dinner at another food hall last night. We chose our dishes with sharing in mind. I chose char kway teow (with chicken), which was really tasty. I was surprised and pleased at the generous amount of chicken included, and the whole dish had been fried in pork fat just as it should be. […]

Dinner, 16/08/2005

Boneless and skinless chicken thighs, encrusted in lemon pepper and panfried, served with fluffy garlic mashed potato and steamed carrots and green beans. I always want to have garlic mashed potato now, whenever we make it at home – it’s much more delicious than plain. And it’s so easy to make too – we boil […]

Computer nerd alert! And, on guilt

I took lots of photos last night and will post them as soon as I can. That roast pork was amazing – Jac’s brother said the meat fell off the bone so “it carved itself”! This morning, I packed Jac up a lunchbox of leftovers – pork, apple sauce, potatoes, cauliflower cheese and bread. I […]

An extremely non-halal/kosher post

I just had a nice hot shower enjoying the aroma of roast pork. The smell is all through the house – yum. I wish I could bottle that smell. I would hold onto it and take a sniff the next time I was feeling down – I’m sure that would cheer me up (unless I […]

Sunday morning

The kitchen smells delicious because there is a leg of pork roasting in the oven. We are going to celebrate Jac’s mum’s birthday today, and our contribution to the meal is roast pork, cauliflower cheese and bread. Oh, and home-made apple sauce to go with the pork, which Jac made yesterday. According to Nigella’s meat […]

Friday night takeaway dinner

Jac went to our favourite asian food hall on her way home from work tonight and picked up our tea. She rang me beforehand to discuss what she should get. We decided to try a stall we don’t normally eat at. First for our starter, she got 10 wantan for AU $6.00. They were delicious. […]
