Crayfish dinner...

Gus purchased two crayfish at Robe to have for dinner with our friends from WA.

Joy by name and joy by nature!

A beautiful sunset to end the day and take some of the heat away...

A loaf of chadd's bread...never fails.

Charles and Joy...

Dessert - mulberries in black raspberry liqueur, double cream, homemade vanilla bean icecream and jam syrup. Wow!

Mulberry jam ...

I had an offer to raid someone's mulberry tree yesterday, so I took up that offer!

It was laden with fruit ready for picking and lots more to come!

It is a messy business!

I made 1.5 kgs into jam and saved some of the best berries to have for dessert tonight.

I was given this Chambord Black Raspberry liqueur for Christmas...so I've sloshed a bit onto the mulberries. We'll have them with some homemade ice cream I also made.

We have visitors for dinner so I need to get cracking on a couple of salads...

We are very lucky as Gus is bringing home 2 crayfish for us to have with these salads!

I'd better get a wriggle on as I need to make a loaf of bread too!

Eating yummy food...

Rhonda at Down To Earth shared a recipe for Salmon Rissole so I gave them a go...

http://down---to---earth.blogspot.com.au/2017/01/salmon-rissoles.html

You can add in whatever you like and I added fresh corn kernels. These were very tasty and a good way to get some fish into our diet.

On Thursday night, we had visitors so we took them to The Tasting Room at Mayura to try some Wagyu beef...

Carpaccio beef, melt in your mouth....

You get to sit and watch the meal be constructed...

Steak kebabs...

Roast rump steak, peach, compressed watermelon, mushroms...

Wobbly vanilla bean panna cotta to finish...

I picked more rosebuds to dry...

The lovely Clare at The Life of Clare made a great frittata using her fresh garden veggies and some leftover veg. I made this last night and we had it with loin lamb chops. Very bloody good!

This could be eaten hot or cold (at a picnic). It was delicious!

What are you up to for the weekend? I'm home all weekend so I hope to get into the garden and do some weeding. We have visitors coming tomorrow night for dinner then we have our friends (two couples) coming for Australia Day and the weekend so I need to do out the two bedrooms, dust and make up beds etc.

Sally rallies...


So, Sally rallied and the dough rose well overnight.

I made a loaf and 12 rolls with the batch.

The rolls browned up okay but afew remained pale.

I was very pleased with the loaf.

I'm going to try a batch of soap soon. Not sure when, but soon...so I'm drying some little rose buds to decorate the bars of soap with.

My Soul Sister rose is producing some blooms but the bushes are a bit spindly. I think their next season will be better. Still in love with these flowers!

Rhonda shared a recipe for Salmon rissoles today so I gave them a go tonight...

http://down---to---earth.blogspot.com.au/2017/01/salmon-rissoles.html

I gently sautéed fresh corn, spring onions, capsicum and chives in a bit of butter...

They were very good. We just had a simple salad with them. Definitely printin this recipe off!

Cheers - Joolz xx
