It’s once again an Australia Time Friday! It’s FRIDAY!!!!
Things have been a bit hecktic in the cleaning and packing department so this is a bit short and late…
Last night I made a Lamb Stew, but didn’t get to do more than taste it so far. Lamb “bone in” chunks, browned, into a pot. Added diced celery, carrots, and onions (also browned). Fill with water, start to simmer. Added about 1/2 cup each of barley and lentils (instead of the usual potatoes). An hour or so later, stew. (Salt, Pepper and seasonings to taste).
While I was waiting for it to finish, I had a big plate of Loin Lamb chops… lack of patience and all that ;-) Desert was apple pie. Home made bread and butter on the side. Wine & Meat? Dinner of champions! ;-)
The “Logistics Issue” is biting now and there were very few choices at the local Bargain Market. I got a 2019 Merlot from Barramundi. A bit stronger flavored than I like in a Merlot (where I go for more of the very old smooth) but quite drinkable. Plenty of color too.
Could likely stand some bottle age, though.
This I will need to add later, or y’all can fill in in comments. I’m scheduled to go look at a truck ;-)
