    Lunch 2019

    A taste of my teenhood. There used to be a Baguette stall at Waterloo station that I frequented when I went to Gigs in London. Always got the Egg Mayo & Pork Sausage. Not quite the same at my music free desk but 🤷‍♀️

    It dosen't picture too well, but I am on a mission to defeat the freezy. I've had some cauli pizza bases in there for a while. Made a quick sauce, Chorizo from freezy and all health benefits erased by my need to use up a heap of bocconcini. To be fair kid didn't twig! (Testament to my shite dough making right there 😂).

    I don't believe the marmite did much for the dish I guess. We're talking like 1/4 teaspoon melted into butter, it barely darkened it. The smell of warm marmite is delicious and strong but taste wise it wasn't really identifiable. The pasta was yum... but no different to the usual yumminess of a simple butter & parmesan pasta. IMO.

    Lunch 2019

    I got a copy of Nigellas' 'Kitchen' for $7 in a shopping centre book sale. I perused it with the kid who asked me to make the 'Marmite Spaghetti'. So I did. He loved it. But I didn't really ... get it. Smelt like warm marmite, tasted like buttery Parmesan pasta 🤷‍♀️
  5. Thank you for all the advice! I have carefully prepared the fruit (stored 4 in my fruit bowl) annnnnd... 1 bag was sent with the MIL and the rest to the mine with my hub... I wish I had half the patience and dedication you all do!

    Chili for us tonight in anticipation of precipitation. It went wide 😔.

    Roast chicken. Pan Gravy, Veg & Yorkies for us. Chicken was in for 10 minutes too long I think.
  8. Okay. Who hung the invisible 'This Girl can't say no to huge amounts of things she can't use' sign around my neck? Pulled up at the drive through car wash in the big smoke today, a man approached my window as I went to tap and go. I lowered it a gap, expecting to be told it was out of order, and he said 'Do you like Mandarins?' Now what?!?

    Sorry to put an end to the beautiful pictures. Bangers N Mash do not photo all that well. Especially when ones husband drops a bombshell as you go to make the Gravy. Apparently the sinner prefers Tomato Ketchup!?!? After all these years 🤯. Yeah so after the photo, I scooped the peas to the side and puddled him some Ketchup. Off to ponder how bad my Gravy is!
  10. I don't have the heart to tell him kitchenware is the one place I adore colour. My wardrobe & coffee may be as black as my soul but... 😁 When I called him to thank he said " The one in the link you sent me last year was orange but that didn't seem like you.." 🤦‍♀️ Ps: Scared to use. Still in box.

    Hmmm.. perhaps I'll try this next time. Seeing as it's a Bona Fide Aussie recipe 😁

    Mine wouldn't either. It's basically just a thick Bechamel with wholegrain Mustard. But I sub out maybe 1/4 of the milk with the cornmeat cooking liquid (which I use a fair bit of Malt Vinegar in). It's not something I grew up with so I'm feeling my way! Constantly battling with the husbands childhood memories of how it should be!

    Corned Meat & Mustard Sauce tonight. Excuse the rough carving I hate doing it but the Mr is absent. My Corned Beef is... inconsistent, this leaned toward the bad side. I've come to the conclusion that the reason is that I'm not in control of the 'Corning'. Large containers and a bigger fridge may be in my future. Sides were boring old steamed veg.

    Dinner 2019

    Oven Baked Chicken Thigh Burgers. Aioli, slaw, pickles and 'American Style' Bacon & Cheese slice from Costco. Slaw is Vegetables. It counts.
  15. I'm not a flower person. Today I am thankful for that. My husband had this delivered to my work 🙂😁. 26cm Satin Black. Now to work out what he has done....
