Back to work tomorrow...

... so we took a drive to Coonawarra and had lunch at Upstairs at Hollick, a fantastic restaurant nestled among the vines. I had roasted lamb backstrap on a white bean puree with a shiraz jus, plus a confit of lamb with rocket salad. Kirby had duck breast with spiced cherries and mushrooms. Angus had Beachport Snapper on a bed of polenta and vegies and Brianna had a pasta dish with prawns, chorizo and a napoli sauce. Dessert was a steamed lemon pudding with passionfruit semi freddo and cream and a dark chocolate tart with cream and peanut brittle. Seriously good food. Burp! (Pardon me?)

After enjoying lunch, we visited Penley Estate and bought 6 bottles of wine to put down for a few years. Angus had better hide them well! He has a wine fridge which keeps the red wine at a constant temperature and I am not even allowed to open the door let alone consume the contents!

Back to work tomorrow - with month end to tackle I have to reconcile the wages etc and send out the debtor statements. That should keep me busy for a while.

  1. Yum, the lamb backstrap sounds nice, as does the dark chocolate tart. You have just reminded me that I need to make a start on my BAS although it is not due for a while yet. The word verification is excess :)
