Lovely long weekend...

Well, we've had a great weekend.  Kirby and her boyfriend came down from Adelaide (unfortunately, Bri had to work shifts) so we did nothing but eat good food and drink good wine!
~
First up, Friday night I made Chicken Biryani...

Saturday, as soon ad Gus finished work, we headed for McIntyre's Beach, our favourite local spot.
~
It was meant to be 30C but I doubt it got above 24C, the wind was quite gusty...but it was pleasant.
~
Simple salads - tangy tomato noodles and a tossed salad...
~
We had marinated chicken steaks, thin scotch fillet steaks and sausages...

Poor little puffer fish!

Home through the dunes...
~
Dinner Saturday night was lamb chops on the barbecue with the left over salads.  
~
Earlier in the day, I made mini baked lemon cheesecakes which we had with raspberries and cream...

Sunday, it was foggy when I got up but it soon burned away...
~
We headed to Coonawarra to Fodder (another favourite haunt) where we had a delicious lunch...
~
Lovely light, wood fired pizzas...
~
Middle Eastern orange and almond cake...my kind of dessert!
~
Kirby and Nate at Rymill wines...
~
We bought some lollies for Brianna at The Lolly Shop...
~
Home again, we had a chill out while Gus prepared the spit roaster to do a chicken for dinner.  Goodness, we love our food!
~
~
I was smart and made Winter Fruit salad with lemon poppyseed dressing - so yummy...
~
...and creamy pasta salad in the morning so I didn't have to do anything when we got home but have a wine! :)
~
The roast chicken!
~
We had leftover cheesecakes, this time with fresh mango and cream...scrummy!
After dinner, we watched Raiders of the Lost Ark, until my snoring sent me to bed!
~
Best breakfast - egg and bacon sanga (sandwich) with gooey egg!
~
Kirby and Nate are safely home in Adelaide and this how I feel right now....tired out!
