Sausage King 2007

Yesterday, Jac, my sister Juji and I went along to the 2007 National Sausage King Competition at the Northbridge Piazza, on the corner of James and Lake Streets in Northbridge. This all-day event was part of City Food and Wine Month. The programme promised “live entertainment, cooking demonstrations, tastings and free family fun”, but s…

Friday night SPAM dinner

My quick and easy Friday night dinner. I roughly up half a big brown onion and a couple of plump garlic cloves, which I fried in the wok until fragrant but not too browned. I then added cubed SPAM and stir-fried until the SPAM’s edges were nicely browned and crisp. I then added two bunches […]

Food hall dinner

I had to go and pick up my shortened trousers yesterday afternoon, and since it was late night shopping, Jac met me at the shopping centre for dinner. She had a Summer Salad Combo from Sumo Salad – a marinated mushroom and grilled chicken salad with a Nudie juice for $9.95. The marinated mushrooms were […]

French toast craving

I woke up on Wednesday morning with a craving for French toast. I broke a couple of eggs into a dish, poured in a little soy milk and a teaspoon or so of honey, mixed everything well together and then dipped my pieces of bread into the mixture, making sure the bread was well covered […]

Turkey thigh roast

After my sushi lunch and completing a few little errands, I dropped by Woolies to pick up some bread. I also had a look to see if they had any turkey bacon. Alas, they didn’t – however, I bought this interesting looking turkey thigh roast with – according to the label – “fruity stuffing”. Jac […]

KFC Three Piece Feed

I’ve had a rather bingey week. No lectures, please. I know it’s bad bla bla bla. It happens from time to time. I’ve been walking past KFC for weeks now, and that delicious, salty, uniquely and recognisably KFC smell finally lured me in. I had a three piece feed – all original recipe. I was […]

A curry

On Sunday evening, Jac made a curry – beef rogan josh. As well as beef, the curry had potatoes, peas, green beans, carrots and tomatoes in it. It was yummy. Jac cooked it for ages so the beef was really tender. I’m so bad at eating curry though – my nose was running like crazy, […]

Another Sunday breakfast

On Sunday, we both woke up feeling like Hungry Jack’s for breakfast. The beauty of eating breakfast (until 11am) at Hungry Jack’s these days is that you can choose from the entire menu, not just the the breakfast items. And so I had an Aussie Brekky while Jac had a Bacon Double Cheeseburger Deluxe, with […]

Food hall lunch

Last weekend, we had lunch at our favourite food hall. Jac had a serve of Vietnamese rice paper rolls, filled with chicken, prawns, lettuce and noodles. They came with a bowl of dipping sauce topped with fried shallots and crushed peanuts. For some reason, the stripy, segmenty prawns showing through the rice paper grossed me […]
