  • One pork knuckle gave me six meals

    One pork knuckle gave me six meals

    One pork knuckle gave me six meals. On Saturday night, I cooked a pork knuckle for dinner and had enough leftover for four more meals. Here is what I did with that one pork knuckle for readers on a budget and cooking for one. Saturday night Pork knuckle with crackling on potato mash with green […]

  • One pizza, four meals

    One pizza, four meals

    One pizza made on Friday night has become four meals. This use of leftover pizza is how I’m approaching portion control.

  • Pork sausage sandwich

    Pork sausage sandwich

    I love working from home on Fridays. I can cook lunch. Ciabatta fried in a nudge of Lurpak butter, melted provolone, sliced tomato and avocado and the last pork sausage, halved and fried in butter served with mushrooms and onions. I also had a great morning tea too. Tonight was pizza.

  • Sweet corn and caramelised onions

    Sweet corn and caramelised onions

    I felt like a relatively light lunch but I wanted something which would require some effort. Caramelising onions seemed like the right thing to do. It’s fairly simple to make caramelised onions. I slice a couple of onions with a sharp knife and put them into a cold skillet with some olive oil and a […]

  • Democracy sausage time

    Provolone piccante, salami and pepperoni grilled cheese toastie

    #covidlife #workfromhome My Italian friend, GC, has again hit a six. She uses provolone cheese on her toasties (also known as grilled cheese sandwich for North American readers). GC recommended I combine the cheese with some spicy cured meats. I’ve never tried provolone as far as I know. I went to the Belco markets and […]

    #covidlife #workfromhome Doing teleconferences from home today. This sandwich is the bomb. I mentioned this as an option last night when I cooked a piece of Coles southern fried chicken thigh.

  • Bondage sandwich

    Bondage sandwich

    I’m still working from home on Fridays and participating in teleconferences during my lunch period. I present to you the bondage sandwich. No this is not some fetish or BDSM thing. Have you ever had the embarrassing situation of cooking a grilled cheese sandwich or what we prefer to call in Australia, a toasted sandwich […]
