Have you ever mixed chicken and Spam together? It’s a great combination. To keep it healthy, I added kale (cooked in butter).Continue reading “Pan-fried deboned chicken thigh and drumstick with Spam, mushrooms, and kale”

Happy Canberra Day
It may surprise some people but I am not the only fan of Spam in Canberra. I have a friend who is a photographer and blogger who loves Spam. She posted on Facebook a photograph of a tin of Spam with a comment that while other commodities are flying off the shelves Spam hasn’t. I made a similar observation on the weekend too.Continue reading “Canberra Day Australian Spam “Musubi””
Happy Sunday to you. I had a huge morning tea and didn’t have lunch today. Mind you I had been feeling a little nauseated. The Dobinson’s Bakery coffee card allowed me a free coffee and cake today and I went with a really rich chocolate eclair.
Deboned roast chicken thigh
Tonight I deboned a chicken thigh and rolled it around a baton of Spam plus some thyme and sage. I served it with a salad and some gravy.

Well, today I had a big lunch. I went out with a fellow consultant and our trainees to a local Chinese restaurant, viz., Garran Kitchen. We had duck, bean curd with chicken, pork, and beef.
Tonight I wanted something light but rather than just stick a chicken thigh in the oven I thought I’d play with my meat first.Continue reading “Deboned roast chicken thigh”
I had a piece of dry brined chicken thigh in the refrigerator and some frozen vegetables I needed to finish off.Continue reading “Roast chicken and frozen vegetables”
I ate well today.
My standard breakfast of a steamed egg and wilted spinach.
Lunch was an extravaganza of roast turkey with cranberry jelly and gravy, ham and hot English mustard, a spanner crab, mango and avocado salad, plus roast vegetables.
It was superb.
There were also smoked salmon blinis for an entrée and chocolate pudding for dessert.
For tea I enjoyed a light meal. It was spam, speck, peas, and cherry tomatoes.
Look what I received from a friend.
Spam, spam, spam, spam, wonderful spam

Tonight I went with spam, egg, and spinach
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.
