The week in brief

This week: there’s not that much to see here. Apologies! Hey, have you entered my Better Homes and Gardens competition?

At the beginning of the week I cooked another whole chicken in the pressure cooker for dinner. I know I’ve said this before, but I need to say it again: I LOVE MY PRESSURE COOKER. The chicken cooks in thirty minutes and comes out very juicy and tender, though the downside is a lack of crispy skin. I shove a lemon, onion and garlic cloves into the chook to give it some flavour and rub a fair amount of salt on and inside it. It’s really good, so I don’t miss crisp skin. My new favourite way to cook a whole chicken.

On another evening we went to dinner at Chinese Spicy and Barbie Kitchen with Thanh and Kat. We ate so much food, this was only half of it.

And we finished off with deep fried ice cream, which was INCREDIBLE. My post on Chinese Spicy and Barbie Kitchen is coming up next week.

For lunch at work this week, I mostly had salads (like most weeks, really). This one was particularly massive – tons of baby spinach and finely shredded cabbage, along with a baby avocado, tomatoes from my garden (yay!), pepitas and tuna. I eat my salads out of a bowl that’s as big as my head because I like to eat a lot of greens – you can never have too much in my opinion.

On Friday night we went out for dinner and karaoke for Bro’s gf’s birthday. Dinner was fine and karaoke was awesome, but I managed to catch a cold. 🙁

So the rest of my weekend has pretty much been spent on the couch, napping, reading, and drinking tea out of my silly cat cup.

Since I had a fairly uneventful week, please share yours. I’m sure it was more exciting than mine!
