Beautiful WA Travel

I have been to Perth several times for work but it doesn’t really count… from store to hotel and back again, I really didn’t see much to be able to say “I’ve been to Perth”. Friends of ours were getting married and Stuart’s sister and her husband live in Perth too so it was the perfect excuse to take some time off work and see a bit of WA. With a flight around 5 hours from Sydney, you need to stay a few days to make the trip worthwhile anyway! We flew in after work on Friday (business class upgrade!...

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...

Slow cooked massaman curry with lamb shanks Dine in

This is the ultimate slow cook dish for winter – lamb again, I know… but it’s a lovely twist on a more traditional beef massaman curry. Massaman curries are not as spicy as traditional Thai curries can be, but it’s still full of flavour and delicious. There are plenty of recipes for home made spice pastes around and when I have the time I love to make my own. However, sometimes I just want to rely on a good curry to save time, but not compromise on flavour! Maesri make heaps of different varieties of curry paste and they are...

Greek lamb and lemon potatoes Dine in

Butter soft lamb served with lemony garlic potatoes. If your mouth isn’t watering yet, it should be! I have made these recipes a couple of times now and I recommend you find an occasion to serve it yourself. Soon! I make both the lamb and potatoes the night before so on the day of the dinner I just need to remove them from the fridge and then put them in the oven. So easy! So good! Served with a greek salad or greens and you have a super delicious dinner… so good there probably won’t be leftovers. Greek lamb Ingredients 1...

A weekend in Melbourne Travel

We serendipitously both needed to be in Melbourne for work at the same time so we planned a weekend away to make the most of our time in the city.  We were “adults” in Brisbane for quite a few years before we ventured south to Melbourne and since then we have been many times. The city itself is easy to navigate by foot or by tram and the architecture, laneways and boutique shops make it easy to whittle hours away. Melbourne is synonymous with food and wine and we obviously did both while we were there! Friday night we dined...
