It’s once again an Australia Time Friday! It’s FRIDAY!!!!
Tonight was a very simple “minimalist” meal, and, of course, the wine. “Risk & Reward”…
Did “the usual” Loin Lamb Chops from Australia. Stood on the T-Bone fat end in a cast iron skillet in the oven at 400 F for about 25 minutes (for no-red inside, so less if you like rare).
A simple salad of iceberg lettuce, green Napa Cabbage bits, Avocado, cheese sprinkles, all with Ranch dressing.
There’s something about a minimalist meal… Simple yet cleanly pleasurable. Especially alternated with more complex and heavily seasoned dishes. Yin. Yang. Variety and contrasts.
I an having a Samuel Wynn “Risk & Reward” Cabernet. It is a bit strong for drinking alone. With cubes of Australian Goat Cheddar it was right at home. I suspect even neutral crackers would light it up. The lamb certainly did.
I reviewed it earlier here:
A 2017, it has 4 years age on it. I suspect it would stand up to a half dozen more nicely.
I like this wine as a pairing with strong foods. For drinking from the glass solo, it needs enough bottle age to start throwing tannins. OTOH, cheddar is cheap and then, “Drink up me hearties Yo Ho!”, with a nosh of cheese ;-)
In Other News
I’ve been trip prepping, and, frankly, the world has gone to shit, so why watch the news?
I mean really, what’s the point? Watch PotuSino Biden pronounce yet more stupidity he does not understand but will enrich his corrupt kid? What do I gain from that?
Soak up the latest Mad Ramblings from CNN (Communist News Network) or pMSNBC that can’t put two words together without an emotional melt down? No, I don’t need to watch the propaganda feeds anymore to do “Opposition Research”. They are doing so much shit so fast I can’t keep track of it anyway.
They successfully pulled off a Fraudulent Election and have control of the levers of power of The Federal Government. Only thing you can do is let them have their lead and watch them run off the cliff.
We are doing “Duck & Cover” and preparing to pack up and move to somewhere that will survive their stupidity.
In that context, why do I care that Kamala is being a pill (i.e. herself) and pissing off even the Democrats? Or that Biden can’t read cue cards without getting lost? Either the Audits and Congress “Fix This” or the best thing to do is figure out how to survive the collapses. (Yes, there will be many in succession)
I would be happy to report on “The News”; if only there were some. Propaganda spun factoids require so much “de spinning” as to be an excercise in futility most days.
Unfortunately, Australia is on the Front Lines with China. Both from proximity and from having the resources China wants. You will either throw their asses out and clean up your sold-out Political Class, or not. I’ll keep eating your lamb and drinking your wine & beer, but unless you fix the China Thing, you are toast. You will be flooded with “refugees” and pretty soon will be a minority in your own house. Then you will be in re-education camps learning your new “Mother Tongue” of Mandarin…
Pick your destiny and pick your pain. It is what it is, and “Reality just is”… Unfortunately, all roads of corruption and ruin seem to run toward Peking / Beijing and their 50 corrupt ruling families…
