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

There will be no post tomorrow – I have to get lots of writing done. And in other news, I picked up my new motherboard today… but one of the parts (the SLI connector) is missing. So I will have to ring them up tomorrow… Needless to say, this is a hassle and I’m very […]

August Birthday Brunch Extravaganza

The birthday brunch was held today to celebrate the birthdays of my mum, my brother-in-law, my sister-in-law and my younger sister’s boyfriend, all born in August.

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

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 […]

As promised, here are the food photos from Jac’s mum’s birthday dinner. Here’s the chunk of roast pork, before carving. Savannah (6) and Max (2 )’s dinners. Savannah’s plate was a pink Barbie one, Max’s was a Teletubbies one. The cauliflower cheese was deliciously rich and creamy. Jac parboiled the potatoes, and …

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 […]
