Buttery soft roast lamb shoulder Dine in

My absolute favourite way to roast meat at the moment is slow roasted lamb shoulder. It’s so easy to do and absolutely yum served with a variety of different sides. We enjoyed this particular lamb with coleslaw and flat bread, and then left overs with tabbouleh and tzatziki later in the week. If you are coming to our house for a meal, chances are I’ll serve you lamb because it can just cook away in the oven while I socialise and enjoy your company! Make sure you enjoy the caramelised roasted garlic from the pan as well… delicious! Ingredients 1/4 cup...

Visiting the Tramsheds @ Harold Park Dine out

I was wandering along King St, Newtown while Stu had his haircut and I bought a scrap of  Japanese cotton in a super cute floral pattern. I was planning to turn into a shirt but it’s a smidge not wide enough… so yet another paper bag elastic waist skirt it is. (I really need to teach myself how to sew a zip so I can expand my repetoire). Anyway, this is a post about food not sewing! Even though we had a snack before departure I was pretty hungry by the time we drove all the narrow back streets (thanks no thanks...

BBQ cajun chicken Dine in

The weather is finally warming in Sydney (most days anyway..!) so it’s finally time to get back into BBQ dinners. We live in a townhouse beside a heritage listed house which has been turned into 4 flats. I often feel sorry for my neighbours when I’m outside cooking on the BBQ because I’m quite sure all the smells are headed straight for their living rooms. I don’t think everyone would appreciate roasted eggplant (for baba ghanoush) or sealing BBQ pork ribs for a long slow cook in the oven at 8am in the morning  as I do (yes, that’s right)...

Sambal roasted salmon parcels Dine in

The perils of shopping online. Most of the time I don’t mind giving control to my “personal shopper” and I’m happy to get what I’m given instead of wrestling wonky shopping trolleys in the supermarket with a scowl on my face. Today though, bit annoyed. I purchased two pieces of salmon. Clearly my “personal shopper” had a bit of a dilemma in the deli. “Does Sally want mid section or tail? Not sure. I’ll hedge my bets and give her one of each.” Dinner tonight is going to be two flavoursome pieces of salmon, one over and one under cooked. Oh...

Creamy pasta with yoghurt, peas and chilli Dine in

I returned home after being away for a week and Stu confidently informed me there wasn’t any food in the house. It was Sunday night and I didn’t feel like cooking anyway so we got takeaway. Monday night I arrived home from work to check out this “no food situation” and was astounded at the bounty in the fridge – a handful of mushrooms, half a bag of almost-past-it spinach, cream, bacon, eggs, parmesan… more than enough to make a delicious carbonara-ish dinner. I hate supermarkets, so after dinner I did my grocery shop online for delivery on Tuesday. However,...
