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?)
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!
As is I guess standard for this time of year, things are hectic.
The little doors on the Advent calendar are being opened one by one.
Friday night was the end of a long week, and we ended up first in Cockle Bay,
then over in Darling Harbour where we had tapas for dinner
Over the weekend I put up our tree. With a little help from Himself,
it was decorated.
I thought this the perfect accompaniment.
There’s a gold ghoti somewhere … oh yes. Near the Electric Bass.
After all that excitement, and in an effort to escape the unseasonable weather, it was time for a bit of a snuggle for some warmth!
