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
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
A nice light but filling breakfast
Thursday night it was my turn to cook for Bron
Salmon and vegetables
Bron was given a box of Champagne truffles as a gift by a work mate after she did a spectacular job on a project
These were pretty delicious
Friday morning was another egg and spam meal. Omelet 🙂
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.
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
Hilarious | Bum Hummers | 1000 farts in a jar
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
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
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
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
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
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 🙂
