Everything here is more expensive than Taiwan. The rent, the fee of internet surfing, the fare of food and transportation and the salaries of Australians are much more than ours. How to save money to afford such situation? Here let’s talk about food first. Like Europeans, the people in Australia always prepare their light food for lunch and cook dinner by themselves if possible. While in Rome, do as the Romans do. Now the chief cook, me, will introduce you that what we had cooked for the first week here.
Varieties of Toasts
Usually we adopted toasts as the leading roles accompanied by some eggs, lettuce, slices of tomatoes and onions with beef burgers, tuna fishes and mayonnaise for our breakfast and lunch. It’s quite easy to be made, not oily and healthy.
- My jumbo sandwich.
- Toast with cheese and bacon.
- Toast with beef and a half-boiled egg
- French toast
As for dinner, we also tried many kinds of food we hadn’t tried in Taiwan – Pasta, steak and curry for example.
- Pasta with red sorce
Mince beef, lettuce, broccoli, vermicelli, tomatos, onoins and some sauce materials are prereqisites.
Mix mince beef, dices of tomatas and onions with Pasta souce.
Put scraps of broccoli.
Put vermicelli into boiling water.
Done!! Pasta with red souce and caeser salad.
There is a butcher shop nearby our house. First time when we entered that shop, one thought appeared: “How many kinds of beef it was!“ Actually we ate beef but didn't know which part we ate! Which part was tasty? Which part is tough to chew. Let’s just give it a try.
Oyster Blade! Look at the price! Here beef is cheaper than chips...
Prepare dices of onions, garlic, tomatos, broccoli, and mushrooms.
My prentice. She will become a good cook under my instruction.
Stew the sauce for vermicelli‧
Add some soft flour.
Spaghetti is done!!
Start to fry oyster blade.
Yu & Ling!!
In face, steak is a little hard to chew. Maybe next time we should try another. ^^
- Pasta with white sorce
This time we will try pasta with chicken thigh fillets.
Prepare scrapes of chicken, mushrooms, onions and garlic.
Mix all materials.
Use milk instead of cream.
Finally pasta with write souce is finished. After tasting, chicken is incrediabely delicious but the souce of taste is a little light. I think that's because we put too much vermicelli.
It's time to eat rice now. This kind of rice is like Taiwan's but costs 21.99 AUD/10kg.
Prepare potatos, an onion, a carrot, garlic, some beef and curry blocks.
Let's see the chief cook perform his cooking skill.
Materials are ready.
Fry beef with garlic first.

Mix scrapes of carrot.
Start to cook curry sauce.

Pour curry sauce into materials.

Stir, stir and sitr...
Wait for curry sauce to be thick.
Finally pour curry sauce into rice and decorate with some broccoli. Our curry rice is done.
I don't lie to you. It's realy dielicious. ^^
