The last weekend in Sydney was amazing My Easter | #ManFlu | #bestblogs13 We ate so well. This week albeit a short one I was back to the run of the mill. On Monday evening I considered a Meatless Monday but reconsidered and cooked a chicken schnitzel.
A nice green salad
I love chicken thigh schnitzel
Of course after dinner I needed to try a couple of Zumbarons®
I have no idea of the flavours. They were delicious.
Back to the routine. Iced coffee banana smoothie with spinach.
Morning office coffee and Zumbarons®
It’s so nice to enjoy a morning coffee with macarons
On Tuesday evening I was going to make chicken schnitzel and salad again. For some reason I wanted to try something different. I thought about chicken and potato gems but after a weekend of really rich food I wanted salad but I also didn’t want salad. I think I’ve been watching too many cooking competitions on television, I thought about a salad in a different form. I love my blender so why not liquefy my salad. It contained the usual elements, viz., salad leaves, spring onions, red onion, tomato, coriander, plus some lemon juice and zest and olive oil. I added some chilli flakes and coarsely ground black pepper. I then liquefied it in my blender.
Honestly it looks like I vomited my salad. It tasted good though.
My last Zumbarons®
My morning office coffee felt empty just like the box without Zumbarons®

There were still Easter eggs at work. I was told I needed to help out and eat chocolate.
Who am I to object
Wednesday night Bron came over to help put together my Ikea bookcase from the weekend.
Laying out the fasteners
We took a break for dinner
Bron made homemade non-church ice cream. There was violet crumble and Queensland nut ice cream.
The finished product
Thursday morning office coffee
Bertie Beetle is having its fiftieth anniversary this year. Check out the wikipedia entry.
Lunch was a veal stroganoff pie

After lunch I had a passionfruit whoopie http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whoopie_pie
Thursday was a pretty long day, we’re ramping up at work to monitor the situation with Influenzavirus A H7N9 so when I left work I felt like takeaway
Fish and chips
Nothing better than freshly cooked battered fish, potato scallops and chips. I love potato scallops. I have friends from Victoria who call them potato cakes which cracks me up. A good potato scallop is hand cut, not too thick and not to thin. The best I’ve ever had came from a cafe in Brookside Shopping Centre in Brisbane.
After the fish and chips I ate the rest of Bron’s ice cream straight from the plastic container
This was Queensland nut caramel. It was delicious.
Breakfast on Friday was a Mavi Breakfast Wrap
These are so good. Sadly I ate this without Bron. I had an early start and needed to work through.
On Friday evening after work I went to the local club with Bron to have dinner
Reef and beef
This is a scotch fillet and prawn cutlets with chips.
So how is my ManFlu? It’s okay. I’m still coughing and spluttering. I should be fine by the end of this weekend.
I’m still hoping friends will vote for me 🙂
