The best pasta I've eaten in Perth.
Jac cooked a beef and mushroom casserole for dinner. She served it with garlic mashed potatoes. The kitchen smelled wonderful as the pot of casserole simmered away on the stove. I’m not sure exactly how long she cooked the casserole for, but it was ages. The carrots and celery were soft and sweet, the beef […]
Dinner: corned beef with mustard sauce and vegetables Jac cooked a chunk of corned beef (sometimes called silverside) for dinner recently. I think my US readers will know this as boiled beef brisket. We get our corned beef from the supermarket. It’s a great dinner, with meat and vegetables all cooked in the same pot. […]
A few weeks ago, Jac and I looked after her niece and nephew on a Friday night – their parents (Jac’s brother B and his wife K – remember our Hamilton Island holiday? :)) were off to Melbourne for the weekend to attend a friend’s 40th birthday celebration. The plan was like this: Jac and […]
A steak and salad bento! Jac panfried a steak medium-rare for her and a steak medium-well for me. I made my easy potato salad, and threw together a simple salad of mixed greens, grape tomatoes and red seedless grapes. I packed us each a container of smokey barbecue sauce to eat with our steak. Jac […]
I recently had lunch with Cellobella at Mai’s Vietnamese restaurant (51 Bennett St, East Perth). To start, we shared a serve of vegetable spring rolls. They arrived piping hot and crisp. It was a good thing the waiter brought along side plates for us to eat them with – they were much to hot to […]
For dinner two Friday nights ago, we had a couple of dishes made by Jac’s mum’s friend E, to eat with rice. She’d made us prawn sambal and lemongrass chicken. Jac said she’d pick up a couple of extra takeaway dishes – another meat dish and a vegetable dish, to go with the home cooked […]
I got three small teriyaki and rice dishes from Taka’s Kitchen (corner Barrack and Wellington Streets) for Jac and me to share for dinner last Thursday night. They were $5.00 to $6.00-something each – a cheap and tasty feed. First: teriyaki beef. The beef looked very roughly chopped and I thought it would be tough […]
