Since my last post about the crust-free meat mince pizza I’ve been pretty occupied at work and then this weekend has been a combination of going out and eating and today being at work again.

On Wednesday morning I made green eggs and ham

The green came from some parsley I added to the egg before whisking it.

On Wednesday night Bron came over and shared some of your super yummy salted caramel macarons with me

Bron brought over one of her delicious salted caramel macarons #yummy

This was about the best salted caramel macaroni I’ve ever tasted

Bron also brought over some beef pie she’d made

This was a fantastic meal

On Thursday morning I had spam and egg

#breakfast I feel better today. Fried egg and spam #yummy

A nice light but filling breakfast

Thursday night it was my turn to cook for Bron

#dinner with Bron. Simple and light. Salmon and vegetables. #yummy

Bron was given a box of Champagne truffles as a gift by a work mate after she did a spectacular job on a project

Friday was spent at The Canberra Hospital, so I bought lunch

Bacon and onion quiche with a caramel thick shake. The quiche was way too salty. I don’t think I’ll do that again.

———-

On Friday night Bron and I went to see Iron Man 3 in 3D. We enjoyed it.

———-

On Saturday morning we went to the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets to check out some groceries and other things.

#paleo #breakfast not too bad

A post shared by Gary Lum (@garydlum) on

I had a pale breakfast at Beppe’s Tuscan Kitchen. It was pretty good and filling too. The bacon was a little too salty for my liking and the egg was slightly over cooked. 

———-

While in Tom’s Superfruits I spied this jar of pickled onions

On Saturday night Bron and I went out with some friends to Chairman and Yip for dinner. This is one of the finest restaurants in Canberra and never fails to please. I’ve reviewed it here a few times. Search Chairman and Yip in Yummy Lummy

I started with stuffed mushrooms

#dinner mushrooms with pesto #yummy

A post shared by Gary Lum (@garydlum) on

These were stuffed with pesto. Always good.

———-

For a main I asked for pork chops honey gin seng red dates goji berries and then we shared

The lighting was pretty low in the restaurant. Sorry about the poor quality of the images.

Bron asked for sea perch and our friends asked for the beef and scallop hot pot plus the caramelised pumpkin and cucumber

#dinner sea perch pork chops and beef hot pot #yummy

A post shared by Gary Lum (@garydlum) on

It was a lovely plate of flavour

———-

Chairman and Yip is a must do for anyone serious about eating in Canberra. A very worthwhile restaurant to visit.

Dunny rating is 2½ out of 5. If it wasn’t for the Aēsop hand products it would rate 2 out of 5. The urinal plumbing had obvious corrosion. The hand basin was old. The hand dryer was weak and there were no paper towels.

The napkin rating was a pass. They were cloth. Cloth=classy.

———-

For dessert I had a takeaway Tiramisu from Gelato Joe’s

A post shared by Gary Lum (@garydlum) on

It was okay. They ran out of churros so I was disappointed.

———-

To make up for the poor egg experience at Beppe’s Tuscan Kitchen Bron made her fabulous poached eggs

#breakfast perfection with Bron #poached #egg on a #muffin #yummy

A post shared by Gary Lum (@garydlum) on

Nothing beats Bron’s eggs

———-

I spent today at work. After a weekend away with my kids last weekend and a day off this week because of illness I had a lot of catching up to do.

———-

Tonight I made some pumpkin soup

#dinner Preparing pumpkin soup #yummy

A post shared by Gary Lum (@garydlum) on

I used onion, ginger, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, Kent pumpkin, white wine, curry powder and coconut cream

———-

The finished product

I topped the soup with a little parsley, Gruyere cheese and coarsely ground black pepper

———-

I hope you have a great week ahead. I’m planning to. If you haven’t worked it out, I like spam 🙂
