No added salt roast pork belly and vegetables

No added salt you read. Yes, well while Yummy Lummy is not the place to share my personal health status, it’s not a secret that I have mild hypertension which is managed with medication.

Read the long version and the reason for the no added salt at Yummy Lummy.

Curry pork sausages with coconut cream mushroom peas corn cherry tomatoes and an avocado

TGIF. ManFlu continues and I feel like I’m living in a snot pit.

I stayed home again and worked from home.

Oven-baked pork sausages, cauliflower, peas, and cherry tomatoes

ManFlu has hit me hard. I stayed home and worked from home while I produced and expelled copious amounts of mucus from my nose and mouth as I sneezed, coughed and cleared my nasal passages of virus-laden mucus.

I’ve consumed analgesics, oral decongestants, intranasal decongestants, and sugar in the form of chocolate.

I couldn’t be bothered sharing how I cooked my meals today. Suffice to say when I have a fever I believe in feeding a fever.

Chicken and vegetables

I came home early today. I’ve got ManFlu. I went to bed last night feeling a little under the weather. I’d had a poor sleep the night before and I wasn’t sure if I had an infection or if I was just over tired.

I woke up this morning with a headache and while at work developed a sore throat, rhinorrhoea, and a cough. Now I feel febrile.

I reckon I’ll be working from home tomorrow.

Deboned chicken thigh and drumstick with cauliflower, tomatoes, and avocado

Came home and didn’t feel much like cooking so I removed the bones from a chicken thigh and drumstick and put them into a baking tray. To that I added a piece of cauliflower plus some cherry tomatoes. I seasoned everything with iodised salt and black peppercorns which I’d ground in a mortar with a pestle.

I served it with an avocado cheek.

Pan-fried salmon and vegetables

You know it’s Monday night and that means salmon.

I was watching a YouTube video over the weekend featuring a couple attending the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) and one of the teachers was focussing on cutting vegetables.

I really like the feel of a knife in my dominant hand and while I am a bit sloppy with a blade I thought I should spend more time on trying to be neater when cutting vegetables.

I had some onion, carrot and celery in the refrigerator so I thought I’d use them with my salmon tonight.
