    Lunch 2019

    Obligatory Fish (Barra) and Chips at the beach. You can take the girl out of Blighty but.. I'm always going to be a soggy paper, pebbles under your butt, lashings of Malt Vinegar kinda gal.

    Cheese I can’t do without

    Yes I think you are right there. Thanks for the recommendations! I feel they may have to wait until I am next in "proper" civilisation, I have found one online supplier for the Saint Nectaire and they wouldn't deliver this rural and no luck with the Tomme De Savoie, but a trip to the big smoke is not that far off. Until then one can dream of cheeses.

    Lunch 2019

    Honestly I think its a learned behaviour. I don't know why but the feeling of hitting something hard with my teeth when I wasn't expecting it just sets off some weird unnecessary revulsion reaction. It annoys me to no end - I can quite happily peel all the meat off with my fingers and eat it that way I just didn't think it was a good look in a restaurant with nowhere to dip my fingers , one serviette and half an hour before a soccer carnival! 😁 And yes, it's pretty much all meat, whole fish is out for me 😔 If I hit a bit of gristle in a Sausage the meals over - despite the fact I know exactly whats in the lower quality ones and have no issue with it.

    Lunch 2019

    @Kim Shook I'm not sure if the confusion is for my inability to eat chicken on the bone but ordering it at least once a year 'just in case I've changed' or the restaurant... In case its the restaurant. Yeah it was confusing. Describes itself as a Japanese restaurant, but its top selling item is Korean fried Chicken, and it promotes 'Australian Fusion' - which apparently that means everything on the is basically a Schnitzel with occasionally Asian influenced toppings 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️ To be fair they are being fairly brave considering their geographical location.

    I am afraid I have never tasted Muesnster so I cannot compare but will add it to my list! I also have not melted the Port Salut yet.. perhaps, in the interest of science my Dinner plans may have just changed

    Lunch 2019

    We went for Lunch at a newish 'Asian Australian Fusion Japanese Restaurant' - mouthful, specifically because I have wanted to try the Korean Fried Chicken. My husband tried the Snowing Cutlet (pork and cheese) and I took 95% of the chicken home. It was beautifully crunchy - I was just reminded, as always, that I cannot eat Chicken on the bone. My husband helped remind with the rolled eyes of exasperation and the not quite quiet enough muttering of "Twat" 🤣

    It is very likely that I am late to the 'OmgPortSalutIsAnAmazingCheese' party. But I feel it is my public duty to hand out invites to anyone else who may have missed this French Semi Soft Cows Milk event. I am a fickle being and this is the Cheese I cannot do without. For right now.

    No idea. Maybe I worded wrong? Following the serious eats guide to temperature out of oven and final post sear temp 🤷‍♀️

    Reverse Sear Attempt #3 My husband thought we'd need 2 to feed 3. He was wrong. Cauli Broc Mash, Green Beans & Steak to 46 CELCIUS then seared to 52 CELCIUS. Much closer to husbands liking.

    Camembert, Chive & Ham Omelette with a Garlic Spinach side.

    Dinner 2019

    Lamb, Feta & Beetroot with Aioli. The never ending lamb has now retired to the freezer. Why I thought it was a good idea to cook a 2.6kg leg of lamb the night before my husband went back to site I will never know.

    Same But Different to Last Night. Cheaty Shepherds Pie.

    Dinner 2019

    Finally found some 'Effort' to make my Aussie day lamb. Kleftiko, modified for the slow cooker. Greek salad didn't make the picture.

    Dinner 2019

    I made meat sticks. Teriyaki chicken and Lamb Kofta, on the BBQ as it's disgustingly hot. There was coleslaw and potato salad and a deconstructed Beetroot and Feta salad to go with. I didn't photograph the sides as when I entered the store to buy the ingredients I got slapped in the face with ICBF-itus and ended up at the deli. The Beetroot and Feta is so deconstructed its still untouched in the fridge 😁
  15. Aussies / Kiwis, in my opinion, have taken it too far! Potato Top Pie If you have potato in/on a pie you don't need pastry and vice versa - at least in my world 🤷‍♀️
