Weekend Indulgence!

A storm has just passed by leaving behind rain, lots of beautiful wet, moist, damp, noisy rain! And I'm loving it! It's a cosy evening to enjoy one of my favourite! Followed by eating the tasty fare, while sipping on a glass of red...yes...a very nice Cabernet Sauvignon has just miraculously popped its cork! Just as well it didn't have a screw top or I'd be really concerned! Tonight I'm preparing a juicy steak as per the picture on the right, to be topped with garlic prawns and bernaise sauce. I've gotten as far as preparing a potato bake...thinly sliced potatoes layered with a little olive oil, crushed garlic, fresh rosemary leaves, a sprinkling or three of chicken stock powder, freshly ground black pepper and a splash of water. The 'bake' is presently doing it's 'thing' in the oven. I prefer making my potato bakes this way than using cream.

The steak I will cook medium-rare. I've green prawns at the ready to be cooked in olive oil, loads of garlic, a small pinch of chilli, a squeeze of lemon juice, salt and pepper. When the steak is cooked to my liking, I will top it with the garlic prawns and then a dollop or two of bernaise sauce will decorate the meal. For greens, I'm blanching some snow peas and that, I believe, should be enough!

Hmmmm...this wine is very 'moresome'...I think I will have to pour myself another glass as it may evaporate!

    Gidday Lee, Thanks for visiting my blog. I have friends who live on Mt. Tamborine and on the 30th last month I was up there attending their eldest son's wedding.
    We had the storm here too and it was great to get some rain if only for a short time.
    Your latest post was very yummy. Let me know when you're doing a roast dinner and I'll have to give Nicole (no not Tom) a raincheck!!!

  2. lol A couple of months ago I had just put a leg of lamb into the oven and a friend rang me from Beenleigh. When I mentioned to him what was going on in the oven, he made it post haste up here armed with a couple of bottles of wine! I didn't even get a chance to eat the lamb hock...he stole it from under my nose. I made sure the next time I had a leg of lamb I didn't spread the word around! ;)

    And stuff Tom...I'd rather have a roast leg of lamb than him any day of the week! ;)

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog, too, by the way. :)
