Pan-fried deboned chicken thigh and drumstick with Spam, mushrooms, and kale

Have you ever mixed chicken and Spam together? It’s a great combination. To keep it healthy, I added kale (cooked in butter).

Corned beef with mushrooms, corn, peas, and avocado

Yay, it’s Friday. I got home and grabbed tins of corned beef, mushrooms in butter, and corn. I had frozen baby green peas in the freezer and some spinach leave on their last legs in the refrigerator.

Pan-fried salmon with creamy mushrooms and avocado

I’m stepping up my salmon game. Rather than once a week on a Monday, I’m thinking I’ll have it on Sunday more regularly.

Smoky pan-fried salmon and mushrooms

I tell a lie. I didn’t smoke the salmon. My flat is filled with smoke but not from burning the salmon. The sky of Canberra is smoky because of the bushfires.
