Happy ‘What I ate Wednesday’!
These are my eats and deets from Saturday, which certainly was a day off two halves!
The day started off early. I wanted to get to the farmers market before we headed over to the other side of town to look at cars. It’s a nice walk to the market, we get to go through the park, but it does take about 35 minutes (in David and I’s fast, both over 6 foot, long legs, pace!). So breakfast had to be a grab and go. So I dug out the grab and go stash, aka quest bars, from the cupboard and paired them with a banana. But you all know what that looks like right? So instead I will post up a picture of the second part of our grab and go from the market – fresh, raw, organic, chilled almond milk.
Oh boy was this good. Imagine the best milkshake of your life – with such a mild soothing taste of almonds. Makes you want to try making your own… maybe!
So we got the bus back from the market with our massive hall of fruit and veg and headed straight on out to buy a car…
And that we did, don’t have a picture just yet but you can check out my opinion on purchasing a car on my ‘currently’ post from Monday… this girl dont like spending money!
So after all that was over David and I felt we deserved a good lunch! We were both starving, otherwise I think I would have gone to a bar for a stiff drink!
We stumbled upon this Malaysian restaurant called Pappa Rich in Northbridge, close to Chinatown and decided to give it a go. David has family ties to Malaysia and he has always wanted to find an awesome local restaurant, I think this might be it!
The staff were friendly and gave us a list of all their meals that did and did not contain gluten – which made choosing from the menu so much easier and relaxing! We decided to get a few dishes to share…
Red chicken with eggplant sambal and biriyani (also in picture our side order of dhal)
Mixed satay (chicken and beef)
Oh my word these dishes were amazing! The red chicken in particular had my heart – so tender, juicy and everything had a fantastic heat to them. Will be back!
My blood pressure had definitely calmed after that relaxing lunch so we decided to take a wonder around the Western Australian Museum and Art Gallery. Not too massive but enough fun for a couple of hours!
After that we had a hankering for some froyo! I think this may become a weekly tradition…
Vanilla and green tea froyo with dark choc chips and chopped nuts.
We ate, the sun set and we headed home after almost 10 hours on our feet!
Dinner was an easy fix – we defrosted a gluten free pizza base, topped it with a tomato and herb sauce and layered on mushroom, bacon and edam cheese and served it with salad. Yum!
Big thanks to Jenn @PeasandCrayons for the awesome link up!
