It’s once again an Australia Time Friday! It’s FRIDAY!!!!
Tonight I made a lamb and spuds dish. Into a large cast iron skillet, put one medium red onion, diced. Saute it in a bit of 1/2 and 1/2 butter and olive oil. When starting to become translucent, add about the same amount of cremini mushroom dice. Saute some more until it’s all almost finished.
Then I added one pound of lamb mince / burger, in olive sized bits. Let that all simmer for a bit, turning to cook evenly from time to time. Sprinkle on salt and pepper to suit your taste, and I added a sprinkle of garlic granules (not too much! Light sprinkle!)
As that finishes, turn on the oven to 425 F to preheat. I added a box of Betty Crocker 3 Cheese potato mix. These are slices of dried potatoes and a cheese powder packet. You boil 2 cups of water, add 2/3 cup of milk, mix in the powder packet and put it, plus an optional tbs of butter in the pan. Then add the dry potato slices. Mix it all together and set it in the oven for 25 minutes.
This is a bit heavy on the lamb, and you could make it with two boxes of spuds for a more potato in cream sauce effect. Or just use 1/2 pound of lamb.
Once again I had the Little Penguin wine, but this time the Shiraz Cabernet blend. It is just a really nice wine. I get it for $5 a bottle at the Bargain Market. IMHO, you can’t beat it.
What can I say? It’s all just so YUM!

Is China trying to start a war?
I noticed that paper goods were back to “only one to a customer” at one grocery store, and chicken prices are staying a bit high. I’m wondering just what is happening in crop production. China is still flooded and buying what it can from all over the planet.
Then there’s that 28,000 folks laid off by Disney in the theme parks. Between their disaster of Mulan and a tendency to WOKEify Marvel, are they trying for a “Get Woke, Go Broke” moment? Then ESPN – who will want to spend money for ESPN to be plagued with Loony Lefty BLM Propaganda promoting a Marxist revolutionary movement? Oh Well. Maybe they will learn, in time, to do business and avoid political advocacy.
