I am officially in my thirties! Two days in and I am loving it!! Marc organised dinner Saturday night with friends and family, it was absolutely amazing. We had such a fun night, and the food. Oh my the food, was sensational. There was sweet potato falafels, kataifi pastry filled with middle eastern cheese and spicy lamb boureks for entree, all of them were bursting with flavour. Then the mains came out… I didn’t think it could get better, then it did. with garlic chicken kebabs, Moroccan spiced calamari, lamb pizza with rocket, haloumi and eggplant pizza and beetroot salad. So much food and we ate it all, everyone loved it!
I am all about the food, and Marc could not have chosen a better restaurant. I had not tried much middle eastern food but now I can’t wait to cook some. The flavours and the interesting spices they use made this meal a delight. I will definitely be attempting to recreate some of those dishes at home.
How was your weekend? Do you take part in paying your respects on Anzac Day? I always watch the dawn service, it reminds me of how much those young men and women gave up for this country and how privileged I am to live in Australia. For me Anzac Day is very humbling and fills me with pride and huge respect for our servicemen and women and their families. Have you ever played two-up? Or do you have other Anzac traditions?
