So tonight I thought I’d share with you guys the photos of some of the food I’ve eaten recently (and did not look too gross to be put up on the interweb).
Persimmon love <3
Grilled haloumi and tomato sandwich on sourdough bread! I’ve been loving haloumi so much lately. I think I could even call it, dare I say, my favourite type of cheese. There, I said it. At least for now.
Afternoon tea with my beloved Mum Okaasan <3 I think she got the spinach and feta quiche or something, and a mug o’ hot chocolate.
And I got a white chocolate strawberry muffin
Sauteed some Singaporean noodle with spinach in EVOO one night. Dinner for two, served in less than 10 minutes. (Although I’m so skilful in the kitchen that it took me and extra 10 minutes just to get the stuff out, cut packages open, burn myself on the stove, etc. I just love how attentive I am.)
Homemade zucchini and red capsicum pizza!! Okay fine, I used a store-bought thin pizza base, but hey those veggies did not saute themselves and my magic fingers had to sprinkle that beautiful mozza on top. The addition of herbs was great. It was so good, I inhaled in moments. Definitely need to make this again. When I’m not as lazy as usual (I hope that happens someday).
Unagi (teriyaki eel) bowl. I think I’ve written about how disappointing it was over here. But you win some, ya lose some. The eel itself wasn’t all that terrible, but it was the way the whole thing was assembled and the cold and hard rice that just made this outrageous. Yeah, I am capable of developing those feelings to food.
Babe spinach, rocket, tomato and crumbed chicken, with the trusty honey mustard dressing.
Sort of an open toast/grill/sandwich? Toasted multigrain bread, spinach, gouda cheese, ham.
Roasted beetroot for the first time in my life! Kind of time consuming, but the end product made it totally worth it Consumed with spinach, rocket and the honey mustard dressing.
Sushi Hotaru with Mum for lunch <3 Love those grilled nigiri.
Kangaroo burger from Moo Burger! It was made on warm and fluffy sourdough bun, with a kangaroo patty with fresh sage and garlic, beetroot relish (gotta make this thing as Aussie as possible), tomato and rocket, with homemade mayo. So ginormous. So fanfreakintastic. Party in the mouth. Need to conquer the entire recipe. Hypercholesterolaemia? Psssshhhh, kind of not worth thinking about when you have this guy staring you in the face.
Went to Maxbrenner with the girls after burgers <3 Their white chocolate chai was overly sweet but still very delish! And their magic mug is fun too; so basically you place that teapot thing on top of your glass mug and it pours automatically! It’s nice because you can pour out any amount you want, and then keep the rest relatively warm until you want to drink some more again I kind of like the novelty value of this thing
Kale, purple carrot, broccoli and mashed avo salad with honey mustard dressing. I am Asuma, and I have a serious dressing addiction.
Made some frenchie toastie for Mum and myself one lazy morning.
Mum made some udon noodle with chinese cabbage, shimeji mushrooms, konnyaku and tofu in a soy sauce and dashi based broth.
Kale and crumbed chicken salad.
Classic felafel wrap in pita bread with hummus from Yummba in Bondi Westfield! I wish I could eat this guy every week.
Baked some banana oats vegan muffins. Was quite moist and chewy and nice Recipe here.
The best grilled cheese I ever made <3 Used wholemeal bread and gouda cheese. Mmmmm….
Chickpea, celery, zucchini, red capsicum, tomato and capers – with the dressing with garlic powder and dried herbs.
Vegan zucchini bread (with goji berries and sunflower seeds) <3 My post about it with the recipe here.
Ebi chilli set from Ton Ton. It was very filling but loved it! I think it was a great deal for just $10.
Afternoon tea with Mum again The almond croissant that we shared, from Becasse in Westfield Centrepoint was delicious <3
Rice noodle with veg
I don’t know what this is called in other Asian countries, but it’s called “chimaki” in Japan, and it’s made with sticky rice, wrapped in bamboo leaves. The ones I had in Japan were plain, but this one that I got over here in Sydney at an Asian store had sweet red bean paste inside. It’s nice to try new things once in a while I feel like I’ve been experimenting more with food since Mum came over!
Tomato and pesto pizza from Bourke St bakery <3 Mum loved it a lot as well.
It’s so nice to go out to eat with Mum; that way we can order more and share to try different things
Mum made us some oshi-sushi with smoked salmon and cucumber! With a side of seaweed miso soup.
Homemade pastry with fresh pear. Courtesy of Mum <3
Bean sprouts, mushroom, red cabbage, capsicum and corn, with french onion dip.
Vermicelli salad with cucumber and ham, with soy sauce and sesame oil dressing.
Cecilia’s birthday celebration
Brown rice, tofu, kimchi, sauteed bean sprouts and spinach dinner.
Please do not report me to RSPCA. I did not eat this kitty. She was just so obedient and cute basking in the sun, and she didn’t even run away even when I approached (so I was kind of trespassing into this property…oops), I had to show you this photo.
So that ends my food recap, consumed over the course of about a month, I guess.
What was your most recent favourite thing that you cooked at home?
