Leftover refrigerated pizza dough with ham, bocconcini, ham, and Kalamata olives

A blogger friend reckons if I leave pizza dough in my refrigerator for a week or more it will sour and the pizza base will have a sourdough-like taste. So this is an experiment. I am enjoying this pizza dough venture 😃🤤 I’m grateful to my friend GC for getting me on to it.

What I didn’t expect was how much gas was formed by the yeast as it fermented carbohydrates. If I remember my chemistry it should be carbon dioxide so I’m sorry for contributing to a little more CO2 in the atmosphere.

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.

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.
