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.

Oven cooked speck with steamed egg and wilted spinach served with Nespresso™ coffee

This morning I woke up and looked in the fridge and spied a block of speck. For breakfast, I’m eating a block of pig fat and I couldn’t be happier 😃🐖

Steamed egg, wilted spinach, and coffee

I’ll be heading into work later this morning. I woke up early to check out what e-mail had come in overnight at work.

I thought I would share how my routine starts and how I centre myself digestively each morning, especially on a Sunday when I want a little peace, quiet, and relaxation rather than a weekday morning which can be a little rushed with making lunch and doing everything to get to work by 6.15.

Steamed egg, melted cheese, and wilted spinach leaves

While it is nice being away on holidays, it is just as enjoyable being in a familiar kitchen, cooking food I want to eat myself, and eating that food.

I need to return to my routine and for breakfast that means an egg and spinach and on alternating days it may include some melted cheddar cheese.

Back “home” with steamed egg, melted cheese, and wilted spinach

Back from Norfolk Island

I’ve been working in Norfolk Island this week.

It’s good to be back in Canberra.

I said hello to Mr Belconnen Owl this morning.

Craving simple egg and spinach

I’ve been craving a steamed egg, wilted spinach and some melted cheese all week.

While in Norfolk Island breakfast consisted of toast and some tinned fruit.

Happy Saturday eggs, cheese, and spinach

Happy Saturday

I went for my usual walk earlier.

Owl Statue

I came across my friend, the Belconnen Owl Statue.

Abandoned trolley

I then came across this abandoned shopping trolley at Margaret Timpson Park. It had an empty box in it for a vintage ‘ladies’ bicycle. It makes me wonder at the sort of person who would just littler like that.

With a little Tabasco™ sauce for some added kick.

Steamed egg, melted cheese, and wilted spinach

So like I showed you yesterday, the whole steamed egg and wilted spinach is a thing with me.

This morning, I made a little mound of cheese on the spinach on which to nest my egg.

I broke the yolk deliberately before shooting the photograph so you can appreciate the oozy goodness of the yolk porn.
