Homemade Smoked Garlic Mayonnaise

Homemade Smoked Garlic Mayonnaise

In the middle of the week you might be probably too tired to even think of cooking. But what about just something simple what would uplift your dinner to the next level? Something that would fancy-up even meals as simple as sausage and veggies? Yeah, of course it’s mayonnaise. Because mayonnaise goes with almost everything. The other option is hot sauce. Now I’m not sure which one I like better. But since I started this article as a recipe for Homemade Smoked Garlic Mayonnaise I might as well finish it.

Did you ever try to make homemade mayonnaise?

Kangaroo-Beef Burgers

Kangaroo-Beef Burgers

Weekend is almost knocking on the door and for those lucky of you it means a well deserved time off. I will save myself this privilege for Monday and Tuesday. Which is actually a really great time to be off as there is less people everywhere. Which really suits my introverted self. However, back to the weekenders. I’ve got a great recipe for you to try this weekend for Kangaroo-Beef Burgers. Because it looks like I’m adapting to the Aussie lifestyle slowly. Well, certainly when it’s about food and BBQ. But what is better than a BBQ with friends and family when the weather is so good? And what is better than a decent juicy burger?  Continue reading

Whole30 Day 30 – This Is The End

Whole30 Day 30 - Lunch

Holy crackers, I made it! I didn’t die as I suspected. I survived all the 30 days without grains, dairy, legumes, alcohol and sugar! Instead of that I focused on whole nutrient foods, like meat and veggies, with occasional little treat in form of nuts and fruits. And it wasn’t so bad after all. What seemed really hard at the beginning turned out to be pretty easy over the time. The hunger faded away. The cravings got smaller. And even though I had 3 (sometimes 4) meals a day, I don’t have the urge to eat every 2 hours anymore.

Whole30 Day 29 – Almost There!

Whole30 Day 29 - Breakfast

OMG, only one more day and I am done with this thing. Oh, and I am ready. I am so ready. Well, not that I’m gonna stuff my face with donuts and fries the first day after this program. But I’m definitely excited about the fact that I won’t have to worry about the little things. And finally – I would be able to eat out! In a restaurant, people! While not making the staff uncomfortable and confused, just ordering from the menu (hopefully) like all the other customers. This is super exciting.

Whole30 Day 28 – Lazy Sunday

Whole30 Day 28 - Breakfast

Day 28 was probably the laziest from the entire Whole30. I was still bit sick and tired so I just spent all day at home, doing nothing. Well, I actually wrote about the two previous days. Which is a quite an achievement for me due to the condition I was in this whole weekend. And also considering the fact that typing still takes a bit of time for me. I should finally find some course for that. Although I keep talking about it for few years, I’m still using maximum 4 fingers to type, while desperately searching for the letters on the keyboard all the time. I am bit old school in some things, I know.

Whole30 Day 27 – Apartment Hunt Continues

Whole30 Day 27 - River View

I felt a bit better this Saturday morning, as the flu seemed slowly giving in. And I think it was because I drunk lots of the bone broth, ate balanced meals and relaxed the whole day on Friday. Well ok, maybe it was because I was super excited about going to few inspections of the available apartments I found on Day 25. My body was just brimming with adrenaline. I couldn’t even fell asleep the night before because I was imagining on of these apartments will be our new place. Our home.

Whole30 Day 26 – Bone Broth Is My Best Friend

Whole30 Day 26 - Lunch

Okay, I know that I’m kinda slacking the daily updates about how the Whole30 changes (or not) my life, as the end of it is coming closer. But just you know I actually had a pretty nice schedule for myself this weekend, including the daily journal, few recipes and a self study. Because I also decided that there is time to learn new things and signed up for an online course. However, you probably know how things work when you have a perfect plan, scheduled to every minute. I was able to post one recipe on the Friday morning (for the delicious Ajvar relish, if you did not notice yet) before I dropped off with a flu.

Whole30 Day 25 – Concentration

Whole30 Day 25 - Lunch

So today I devoted almost all my time and energy to the new apartment search. Because there just has to be a nice place for us! And that’s about it, not much else really happened today. So I’m sorry if you were looking for some crazy story from Day 25, but everyone has boring days sometimes. Right?

Whole30 Day 24 – Getting Social

Whole30 Day 24

Only one week before I can have a glass of wine. Yaaay. Ok, now I probably look like an alcoholic. But I am really excited, I’m not gonna hide that. Otherwise I don’t even know what else I want to try to introduce at first. Well, I am looking forward to have yoghurt and cheese. And also some rice and sourdough bread. But I’m not so crazy about it anymore. The cravings are incomparable with the ones from the beginning of the Whole30. I’m actually almost scared to taste these things again. Worried that they will be either that good that I won’t be able to control myself or that they would in fact lose their appeal. No, that’s foolish. Cheese will be always good.

Whole30 Day 23 – Chasing The Turkeys

Whole30 Day 23 - Sunrise

One more day with a delay, as I was just deadly tired last night, unable to type anymore. Which sounds funny considering the fact that I bundled up myself in the sleeping bag at 8 pm on Monday. But it’s nice to listen to your body clock sometimes. And maybe think ahead a little bit. Because I realised early enough there was no way we could sleep in on the hard ground under the tent. But I had the best time camping in Binna Burra this Monday and Tuesday. It was extremely relaxing. Well, at least if I’ll omit the turkeys.
