Dec 29: Fish and Chips; Bruschetta, Shrimp, Lamb, Sausages, Baked Potato, Tomato, Avocado and Mango Salad

Lunch

We traveled for lunch with friends in Sydney, who took us to¬†The Boatshed¬†at Balmoral Beach. No food pictures but the view forms today’s headline photo!

Because it was the seaside, we at Fish and Chips. The fish was perfectly cooked inside with a perfect batter. The chips could have used another minute or two in a hot frier to crispen a little more.

Our friends paid for lunch.

Dinner

Back to Newcastle for another dinner party: this time with the friend (and relatively new wife) who introduced Greg and Philip in December 1990! He and Foodie Greg’s friendship started before primary (a.k.a. grade school).

Dinner started with Bruschetta and jumbo shrimp. Followed by a leisurely soak in their lake-side pool, before heading back up for dinner.

After the swim, we were ready to eat again, so we dined on lamb, sausages, roast potato cubes and a delicious arugula, tomato, avocado and mango salad. The meats were done on a barbecue or grill outside.

Our hosts paid for dinner.
