    Lunch 2020

    First day back at School tomorrow. Our today lunch was the 'Oopsie Sushi..' Aka The ones that looked like $h!t. I doubt much will get eaten. There is much playing to be done.
  2. The end is nigh... or high. Maybe both 😁🤦‍♀️ Did not buy.

    Silly Beer

    I had a mouthful but in my husbands words 'If you get the chance to try this... Don't'.

    Dinner 2020

    Actually my onion rings were breaded and oven baked 😊 Still not healthy by any means. But I am not brave enough to deep fry anything at home.

    Dinner 2020

    Ok. So my Hub Keeps unusual hours, and while it's Wednesday (at varying times) for us normal folk, it's Saturday for him & his Buddies. His turn to host and I am assembling burgers. It being Wednesday for me I make 'em at a normal time... they eat 'em when they get round to it 😂. Look away lovers of Gourmet & Health. This is not it. Half were beef burgers with Jalapeno, Onion rings, Burger sauce with Bacon and Cheese and half were 'Quater Pounder' style.
  6. Popping in to say I had to google 'Eggslut' thinking I was reading the pronunciation wrong and it was some fancy gourmet thing I hadn't heard of. Nope. It is what it is. And I love it. 😂

    Lunch 2020

    We are a trio and my Son is 6. Sushi is his favourite food after chips and nuggets 😂. Despite being rural, Australia truly is a melting pot of cultures and what the kids take is so varied. I wouldn't have even considered giving it a go if he hadn't said 'So & so had Sushi today'... I am aware this might all change as age and judgemental behaviour increases 😔

    Lunch 2020

    I am trying to improve the variety in the lunch boxes I make for my big and little boys. First ever attempt. See how they fare overnight. I don't love them enough to make it at 3am before work 😂 He's clearly not a Moe yet!
  9. Saw Mini eggs & Creme eggs for sale in IGA today. Easter is coming...
  10. I will never again forget my lunchbox and leave it (and its remaining cauliflower rice) in my car for 24 hours when the outside temp is 38 degrees. Pee-Yew! 🤢

    Dinner 2020

    Hearty Steaming Sausage Casserole! Just what you feel like after being outside all day in 38 degrees! Not. Heres hoping ones husband gets the hint that if his answer to 'what time are you getting home?' is 'I dunno' I'm likely to resort to my timing friendly reheatable favourite stews & soups & casseroles 😂 If his comments of 'oh a hearty summer stew' and 'Thank G we have aircon' are anything to go by he might get it 😂

    Lunch 2020

    Yes break time. Colloquialism with its roots in stopping for a cigerette and the Australian insistence that everything is better ending in 'o' or 'a'. And Bernie 'Smoko' is still very much used by the rough and ready and rural and resistant to change 😂. Especially those that start at 0430 finish at 1800.

    Lunch 2020

    The baked egg thing from dinner gets repurposed for husbands lunch/smoko. I put it in a wrap with some veg and he will reheat in the crib sandwich press with an unpictured side salad. Badly lit parcel.

    Dinner 2020

    "Crustless Quiche" & Salad. The ham fatigue is getting real now. But in times like these its very important not to be wasteful IMO.

    Dinner 2020

    You all know I'm a simple gal by now. Tried to mess around with presentation tonight 🤦‍♀️. Him: Whats this called? Me: Lamb Peas & Spuds Him: Oh. Over done lamb. Boiled then pan browned taytos, mashed minty peas & Feta.

    Lunch 2020

    Ham & Cheese Toasties ( I have come over all American and like the cast iron pan method - probably should throw away my Toastie Press space filler ). I make a cheese 'paste' with strong cheddar, leftover cheese ends (goats this time) mustard, woster, salt & pep. Ham salad wrap for husbands Smoko / First lunch.

    Dinner 2020

    Dinner looks like sh**e because I forgot to take a picture until after I had packed the leftovers for hubs lunch. Rogan Josh (Pataks paste school night cheat) and baked cauli rice. Unpictured were poppadoms & mango chutney.

    Dinner 2020

    Last night of the Jollies. Many a leftover shoved in a Doggy Box. Chicken Parmy (Aussie tradition is to judge an establishment by its Parmy - or so my hubster tells me when he orders one 75% of the time and I accuse him of being boring). Kid had a Cheeseburger I tried a 'Rueben' - again not sure if truly a Rueben as had brisket and pastrami but was yummy and huge. Jalepeno Poppers to Sample This was a diff restaurant to the other night but a few in the area seem to be trying to do things 'American'. We even saw a Carls Jr in nearby Rocky.

    Lunch 2020

    Still working on the Xmas ham now I'm home - we bought one and were gifted two 🤦‍♀️.
  21. European Breakie. Tasmanian Cheddar. Semi Hard Goat from Spain & Fennel & Chilli Jamon. Drive Through Long Black 😂

    Dinner 2020

    A BBQ dinner tonight at a place called Pie Alley in Yeppoon. Supposed to be New Orleans style food in a Whiskey & Blues Bar. Set in a literal Alley. There was a brilliant live singer but it wasn't Blues. There was not that great a Whiskey selection and I have never been to New Orleans but I didn't see any Gumbo or Jambalaya on the menu ... so not sure if very authentic. BUT the food we did have was Very Very Very good. Pretty sure my hub would have prefered to take more loaded "fries" home over me 😂. Obligatory kids nugs & chips Pulled pork loaded fries with salsa, Aioli and Jalepeno Jelly. Bbq platter of Pork ribs, Popcorn Prawns, Onion rings & SF chicken with slaw and chips.
  23. Well I have been really looking forward to all the eating out and not cooking. Didn't get off on the best foot 🤷‍♀️. Eyeing the pans in the apartment 😂.
  24. @Kim Shook Yes they are my sausage rolls. I'm used to Srolls being rectangular or little squares. I use sausage meat without casing (or 'undress' pre existing sausages) add my flavours and shape a flatish portion of the meat mix on the pastry then fold and seal 🙂. I prefer the pastry to have an edge on the meat tbh

    Dinner 2019

    Last night we had another get together. I neglected to get any photos of the BBQ but got a shot of the nibbles. There was Rump & Snags, Potato & Pasta salads, Green Salad, Stuffed potatos, Coleslaw & Garlic Bread. I am done with cooking/making for a bit! Goats, Cheddar, Camembert, Jambon Serano, Kransky etc.. We go away for 5 days now so its been a mission to hand over / use up leftovers. Tonight I made my husband an 'Abominable Sandwich' for dinner. (He loves weird ass sandwiches, they make me sick in my mouth a little 🤷‍♀️🤢). Cheap white bread, thin sliced leftover rump, pasta salad, mustard, spring onion and jalepeno with Massdaam & Cheddar. Dustbin Sammich 😂.
