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.

Cheesy herb-infused béchamel sauce with leftover crunchy pecan roast pumpkin and pork sausage

Check out last night’s blog post for the recipe for the roast pumpkin.

I’ve been watching the French Cooking Academy YouTube channel, and I was keen to try a béchamel sauce with a cold roux and hot flavoured milk.

I flavoured the milk with onion, clove, bay leaf, thyme, rosemary and nutmeg.

Assuming you’ve not made a white sauce or béchamel before, it involves making a roux or a paste with equal amounts (by weight) of butter and flour.

You need to cook it on low heat and whisk it for at least 3 minutes to reduce the taste of the flour.

In this version, you allow the roux to cool. To the roux, you add hot flavoured milk and then whisk it until it thickens.

I made a thick bechamel because I wanted it to be the foundation for the pork sausage and leftover pumpkin. Using some cheese makes thickening the béchamel much easier.

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.

Curry pork sausage and duck breast

I’ve got a few pork sausages left in a packet I bought on the weekend as well as a couple of duck breasts which I cooked on Saturday evening.

I like a curry with coconut cream and this meal was pretty simple to make with a can of coconut cream. I always keep a can in the shelf of shame.
