Last week I learnt that if I put some baby green peas in a baking tray and put a piece of deboned chicken thigh on top I end up with some peas which remain green and soft and some peas which go brown and crunchy.
I really enjoyed both textures.Continue reading “Chicken, cheese, peas, and corn”
Another light lunch in an effort to stop myself from gaining weight.
- Cheese (Coon®)
- After my morning walk and consuming a glass of fibre grab a block of cheese, some celery, and a carrot from the refrigerator.
- Slice and dice everything including a few dates from a container in the pantry.
- Pack in a Tupperware™ container with an ice brick and take to work.
- Enjoy lunch while sitting behind a desktop PC reading and replying to e-mails.
Coon® cheese gets its name from an American, Edward William Coon.
Sunday lunch. Pan-fried Vegemite Spam, cherry tomatoes, melted cheese, and wilted spinach.
In a chat with a friend on Facebook earlier this morning there was mention of Spam and different varieties of Spam. I mentioned that I’d like to see Vegemite Spam.
I cut a slice of Spam and gently and with great love fried it in a frypan until the outside surface had changed colour a little. I set it aside to cool and rest. When the surface of the Spam was cool, I smeared on a little Vegemite. I put some spinach leaves and halved cherry tomatoes into the frypan plus a small handful of grated cheddar cheese. Atop the cheese I added the slice of fried Vegemite smeared Spam. I cooked this for three minutes with a lid on the frypan. The spinach leaves wilted, the cherry tomatoes softened, and the cheese melted.
I’m sure people in England could do this with marmite or promite. I wonder if people in Hawaii, the Republic of Korea, and Japan (big Spam lovers) would like this dish.
