I'm guessing by now you have all seen the red sky and dust galore. I'm pretty upset for two reasons...
1) The dust storm hit just as lunch approached so I had to brave the elements to hunt and gather
2) I am (supposed to be) flying to Gunnedah for Porchetta Day preparations this afternoon. The plane is very small - I think 12 seater- so I am quite apprehensive about getting into this little beauty with dust causing visibility to be about 3m... (Ok slight exaggeration- but seriously!)
One thing that did make me happy today - my lunch.
Sometimes I just want something simple and comforting. All the worrying about porchetta day made me crave some comfort food and guess what I came accross on my hunting mission in treacherous conditions? A SAUSAGE SIZZLE!! I couldn't resist and I know it is so un-gourmet and even a bit gross but sometimes there is nothing better than eating a sausage (gasp) on white bread (gasp again- splutter from the dust) with loads of onion and tomato sauce. To tell the truth... I had two!
I just wanted to remind everyone how great sausage sandwiches really can be. My message:next time you walk past a sausage sizzle- don't shun the sausage.
After all the sausage talk- back to pork. Hopefully, I make it to porchetta day prep in time! Looking at the sky does not look promising.
Do you have a comfort food? Does loving this sausage sandwich affect my credibility?! Do you sometimes like eating something you know is actually quite wrong, but is somehow, oh so right!!
