Sunday Lunch Toast with Asparagus and Poached Eggs

Since I started working in Sydney, I know how much Ozzies love their Avo on toast with some poached eggs or vegemite. Walk into any cafe and there will be avo toast on the menu, plus, it will probably be the most popular dish in the venue. So after working in the cafe, where I poached 16 eggs, I went to my other job, where they kindly asked me to poach some more eggs. Happy to have a nice free Sunday, my brain missed the poaching so much, that I even did some in my spare time, for me myself and I!

Peanut butter chicken burgers with cucumber

The combination of chicken, peanut butter, cucumber, aioli and bbq sauce ended up being a great combination and a heavenly meal after a long day hike.

Carrot cake with white chocolate and cookies

Yummmm carrot cake! I don’t know how it is un your country, but in Holland every time someone brings a carrot cake, the famous joke about the rabbit at the bakery comes along. I just hadn’t had carrot cake for such a long time, so I decided to make one for my collegues (and for me 🙂 ) because it was my last day of work before my big travls. And a nice thing about carrot cake is that it contains a lot of carrot, so you can always use that as an excuse to eat another piece (of course don’t mention the amount of sugar and the amout of butter and the frosting).
