It’s once again an Australia Time Friday! It’s FRIDAY!!!!
I guess you can tell I’ve got a job now, only one posting in between the two Australia Friday postings… I’ll need to watch that. OTOH, I put what was effectively a posting about Scythians in comments in the Grab Bag ;-)
Tonight I’ll be doing a Lamburger Steak, pan fried in olive oil, with a dusting of salt, garlic granules, and a grind of pepper. Topper will be leeks sauteed in 50/50 Olive Oil / Butter.
Sides are Trader Joe’s Cole Slaw (a kit with dressing that’s cut a bit coarse, but is very tasty), Chard (the red stemmed kind. Tonight will be the leaves, steamed. Tomorrow the stems. We do both the French approach of leaves and the German approach of stems. ;-) And yes, it will be slathered in real butter as it hits the plate.
Desert will be strawberries in Kefir, with a bit of added sugar. We tried Kefir for the first time a week ago. I find that I like it. Calling it “A liquid like yogurt” doesn’t capture it. The stuff is more thick than “liquid”. It is rather like yogurt you can pour, sort of. But with an interesting quality to the flavor. Almost like a hint of effervescence. Mixed with a bit of jam it is very nice… But tonight will be real ripe strawberries, diced, and sugar to taste.
Wine – Yellow Tail Pinot Grigio
A very pale yellow, that looks almost water clear in the glass. A bit of effervescence here, too. Not enough to fizz, but enough to make the edges of your tongue dance. Nose is of light spring fruit. The flavor is gentle, subtle, and with enough acid to make it interesting, but it would be overwhelmed by strong foods or cheddar cheese. A very nice light easy drinking wine. I suspect it will be a bit whimpy up against garlic flavored lamb covered in leeks, so I’ll have to try and finish all I can before dinner ;-)
In Other News
Looks like Sky Australia has clue about Baffled Biden:
Yes, that’s about how 1/2 the USA sees him too.
Blithering Biden Bumbling and Bungling.
The only “good” I can see in this is that we know The Big Lie happened (that being the notion Biden was properly elected). The Dims are trying to tag the phrase “The big lie” to the notion that the election was “stolen”. I’m happy to embrace the phrase “The Big Lie” as the notion Biden actually got elected.
So there you go, Democrats. YOUR Big Lie has the world laughing at you. I’m beginning to enjoy watching you twist in the wind as YOUR policies make you look as stupid as Biden (who we know is barely able to read que cards and doesn’t know he’s in the White House when he wakes up – he told us so…)
