Thank goodness today is Wednesday, in fact thank goodness it’s just a day closer to Monday. Now I’m not one to wish time away, especially when it includes weekend time – but Monday marks the day which, hopefully after a successful visit from the engineer, I will have wifi at home!
I cannot wait! As much as I like the library, I am dependant on a touch and go wifi connection that unfortunately kicks me out a lot. I know they do the best they can so I’m not annoyed with the library, more that it takes forever to get set up here! In the UK they definitely put the connection of broadband as a high priority! Ha!
Everything I want to do going forward depends on a solid connection, so keep all your fingers and toes crossed for me that all will go to plan and from Monday I will be one happy camper!
But for now, lets check out some food! Bringing you my ‘What I ate Wednesday’ from the delight that was Saturdays eats! Thanks @PeasandCrayons for the link up!
Breakfast – eggs, kale and tahini
A lot of our routines have changed since moving to Australia, but this one I wasn’t letting go of! It’s my favourite breakfast and I love it on a Saturday with a massive mug of coffee!
Lunch – Grilling – lemon and herb chicken with grilled eggplant and salad
Our first meal on our new barbecue! And it did not disappoint! The chicken was so moist and juicy, the eggplant/ aubergine I could eat for days and we paired it with goodies from the farmers market for a perfect lunch – stuffed vine leaves, cherry tomatoes, olives, feta… a Mediterranean feast!
I always forget how good Green and Blacks chocolate is – I don’t feel like I truly utilised it’s wonder when I was back in Scotland and had access to all the flavours. But I was pleased to find the simple but good 70% in our local supermarket. We had a few squares with an, unpictured, glass of white wine.
Dinner – Grill’d
Our first time visiting Grill’d – we had the perfect seat, with a bar nearby playing live music, it was warm but not too hot – the perfect setting for a date night!
The food was a tale of two halves – first up the burger – WOW! On a Paleo bun (well they call it a ‘low carb’ bun but I hate that term… basically a bun made with coconut and almond flour that was full of good stuff and wouldn’t hurt my tummy!) I had a mustard and dill pickle burger that every bite was a grass fed meaty delight! David had the lamb burger with goats cheese and he was very happy too!
The second part wasn’t so good – the sides. The zucchini chips were not good – quite greasy and you just basically tasted the batter. Grateful for another GF side but it just doesn’t work with a veg like zucchini. And the sweet potato fries were limp and quite greasy too. Boo! You need good sides with your burger!
Whether we go back or not we will see. The burger was so amazingly good that we were by no means disappointed with our meal.
And then we were off to see Robbie Williams in concert who was everything I imagined he would be and more – such an entertainer! And Perth arena is wonderful for gigs!
