Then forget to take photos as you add the smoked salmon pieces, mushrooms and asparagus. Cook until tender.

While this is cooking whisk your eggs with pepper and salt and the fetta.

Add the egg mixture to the pan, pulling it away from the sides as it cooks until it begins to solidify all over.

Coat in parmesan as desired then put in the over at 180-200C for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.

Remove from oven and pan, then consume with s side of salad.

First there must be the perfect Vinegar.

Then the perfect Olive Oil.

Combine with an Almond Dukkah.

And fresh baked Turkish bread! This is to begin.

In a jug combine red wine, lemonade, sugar, cointreau, an orange, a lemon, an apple, and an unpictured ruby grapefruit. Voila! Sangria! (Should that be Olé?)

Photobucket

All of this,

Some of these,

and chopping …

and then get so involved in conversation with your guests that you don’t manage to get photos of either the finished paella, nor the chocolate coated strawberries that were for desert!

Blogging fail = Dinner Party WIN!

I’ll do better next time!

Dinner at The Ranch

Sometimes you just want comfort food. Even better is comfort food when you can convince yourself it’s vaguely healthy! In the effort to appear that we were looking after ourselves, we made pizza for dinner, rather than buying take out.

It’ has all the important food groups, vegetables, carbs, dairy and meat.

Well, the way we make it tends to look a little like this …

Photobucket

Yes, that is pepperoni, salami, and cabanossi. Also two kinds of cheese. Why do you ask?

Coming out of the oven …

Photobucket

and heartattack on a plate!

Photobucket

Can’t ask for more than that really!
