Darling Harbour is a busy place, ringed with dozens of bars, restaurants and cafes. There are shops, hotels, exhibition halls, modern architecture, the National Maritime Museum. There were street performers and a great atmosphere.
The ubiquitous Sydney Harbour ferries. They were great - went everywhere!
Huge liners littered the Harbour. I counted 6 or 7 there on New Year's Eve. Not my cup of tea.
We watched the faded New Year's Eve flags lining the entire Harbour be replaced by fresh Australia Day flags a few days later.
I loved the hustle and bustle of the place.
So, back to to gloomy, foggy old Bradwell. I had a good day in the office yesterday. A strawberry smoothie for breakfast, sushi and a pear for lunch and a banana on my way to the gym. Yes, you heard right, a good solid workout before I got home so I would not be distracted away from exercise by my pesky chimp.
It worked and I was looking forward to supper which was a quick and simple soy scallop and prawn stir fry. Yum.
Today I've been at home which I find easier. My golf was cancelled again due to rain and flooding so I worked for a bit until I felt hungry then had scrambled eggs with a rasher of bacon (should be avocado but - yuck) and mushrooms and tomatoes. It was almost too filling. I was a tad stuffed afterwards.
It certainly kept me going through an hour's hilly walk round the village.
Not quite as sunny as Darling Harbour eh?
I swear there is a large farmhouse up there!
It was great. Rich had no idea it was cauli rice and I couldn't tell either. I don't know whether 100% cauli rice would be any good but I'm certainly willing to give it a try. I suspect the mix'n'match approach is the way to go.
I will definitely cook that recipe again too although I would add more spice. It was much more filling than I expected too and I followed the recipe to the letter.
