Hawaiian pizza Yummy Lummy-style
I’ve now been making a pizza on Friday nights for a few months. I’m grateful to my Italian pizza mentor, GC, who has been helping with flavour combinations for toppings and different ideas.
It’s been a most enjoyable exploration into an area I never thought I’d venture.
While I remain very much the student, my “big kid” attitude started thinking on Thursday about venturing somewhere beyond the traditional (and possibly acceptable).
Out of respect for GC, I did ask if we’d still be friends if I went out on a limb. Fortunately, GC is a very accommodating soul and agreed we can remain friends. 😊
I’ve noticed on some on-line food forums the thought of pineapple on a pizza stirs up high emotions. I’ve certainly eaten pineapple on pizza before, and I don’t mind it. Given a choice though, like if I’m paying for a pizza or making one, generally, I avoid pineapple. Tonight will be the exception which proves the rule. 😉

Most people think ham and pineapple when they think of Hawaiian pizza, but for me, Hawaii means Spam. I mean check out my T-shirt. 🍕
I was very happy with how this turned out. It tasted delicious and best part was the gorgonzola contrasting with the sweetness of pineapple. 🍍
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
