Joolz & Kirby cook dinner...

Of course, we had to do a Maggie dish...
~
We chose her chicken with figs, honey and vinegar...

Accompanied by braised kipfler potatoes...
~
I portioned a free range chicken then added it to the baking dish with all the other goodies - red onion, figs, lemon thyme, rosemary, cinnamon, verjuice, vinegar, honey and chicken stock...
~
It looked great before it was cooked!
~
Just before serving, I drained off the pan juices and reduced them, to pour over the sticky chicken...
~
Yum!
~
Kirby made a salad...
~
~
Family dinner - the best kind!
~
Dessert was also a triumph!  Very easy mini baked cheesecakes...
~
The biscuit base is pressed into patty pans then the filling goes in (cream cheese, 1 egg, caster sugar, lemon juice and cream)...
~
Bake then cool then refrigerate until needed ...
~
And et voila! Very decadent and deceiving! I thought I could knock two of them off but one was plenty...
~
A wine for the cook!
~
Food coma for Brianna!
~
Today we will explore the region, checking out Maggie's Farm shop and some wineries. Then tonight it is Gus and Breeza's turn to cook dinner. Entree and main plus our cheesecakes again for dessert. Bring it!
~
Cheers - Joolz xx

  1. What a wonderful way to spend the weekend, at Maggie Beers! Food looks fantastic. I hope Maggie reads all about your visit. To be let loose in her shop could be very dangerous, look forward to seeing the puchases.

  2. Everything looks so YUM, and I have to admit that the 'food coma' photo of Brianna made me snort!
