It’s once again an Australia Time Friday! It’s FRIDAY!!!!
We’re having Australian Lamb Loin Chops, roasted in the oven. A bit of salt, pepper, and garlic granules as desired. As many times before.
An “American” Side Salad. Ranch dressing. (Bottle almost done, then a new dressing on offer ;-) This is a lettuce salad with carrot shreds, some red cabbage bits, and some slices of radishes in it. Maybe some other stuff. Just Bag-O-salad, really.
I’m having a bit of left-over Acorn Squash (roasted) reheated and buttered. The spouse is just going for the other main side dish: Red Potatoes, cut into “fingers” about 1 cm square, coated with Olive Oil and roasted along with the Loin Chops.
Yeah, “Meat & Potatoes” with a side salad and me doing the leftovers a bit.
New Zealand Honorable Win! I have a bottle of New Zealand White Cliff Rosé. Vintners Selection 2020. A rather delightful wine that had a bit of sparkle in the glass, a nice peach with rose color, and a delicate delightful fruit flavor. The nose is fruity and a delight. Definitely a Winner! I was having a glass or two as I made dinner ;-)
With dinner, we will be having a ShottesBrooke Farmers’s Friend Cabernet Sauvignon Langhorne Creek 2017. Deep and strong flavors. A bit too tannic after the White Cliff, but the pallet is adjusting and will likely be well in balance with garlic crusted lamb when it is done. Ought to bottle age well, but is drinkable now with strongly flavored foods. Nose is a bit thin (or 3 glasses have dulled mine already ;-) with some oak but not a lot of fruit. I’d expect this wine to go well with a strong red meat or an Italian main dish. After dinner I’ll post an update on that point.
Major point here is that “Omicron” variant has shown itself to be our friend, and Enemy Of GEBs everywhere. HIGHLY contagious and endowing strong Natural Immunity all over the planet. Spreading like wildfire, yet NOT putting folks in the hospital.
I predict a FLOOD of “Fear Porn” from the Pwned Media painting this as worse than Black Death and DEMANDING ~”Everyone be locked down for months and get 2 or 3 booster shots too!!!! PANIC!!! EVERYONE PANIC!!!!”. Because, you know, you can’t have a nice Global Dominating Fear Porn Driven Panic over a head cold that gives you immunity…
Everything else, IMHO, pales in comparison to this Nature Provided Antidote to the Plandemic Fear Porn.
Side bar on me: I’m now into my 2nd year of No Bad Thing despite 2 (soon to be 3) cross nation trips and interacting with a cast of 100 Thousand+ while not wearing a mask and while remaining a Pure Blood. I think that pretty much proves Ivermectin works very very well.
