Easter feasting...



 
Saturday night we ate at the Cinnamon Club on The Parade.  The place has had three name changes over the years (Cilantro, Hazara and now CC) with different management but the food remains the same authentic, delicious Indian cuisine.  The decor is modern and the place is squeaky clean.  No smeary glasses and sticky menus here!

Samosas...
~
~
Chicken tikka dosa...
The dosa is a fermented crepe made with rice batter and black lentils.  Ours was stuffed with chicken tikka, vegetables and spices and came with the accompanying sauces.
~
Lamb Rogan Josh and naan bread....
~
Prawn curry with pulao rice....
~
Another yummy experience!
~
On Easter Sunday we ventured up into the Adelaide Hills to Pike and Joyce restaurant and winery...
~
Beautiful views of the valley, covered in vines and apple trees....
~
~
Tasmanian scallops...for the other three...
~
I had roasted autumn figs, goats cheese, honey and sorrel salad - oh, my!
~
Bri and I had roasted duck breast, heirloom beets, chick pea and red onion and jus gras...
~
Gus had the grilled John Dory fillet, pearl cous cous, lemon, zucchini and herb salad...
~
Kirby enjoyed her herb marinated lamb backstrap, roasted carrot and garlic yoghurt.  Sides were duck fat roasted new potatoes and salad of mixed leaves, green beans and Dijon mustard creme...
~
We only ordered one dessert - rich Belgian Chocolate mousse cake with white choc and raspberry icecream, autumn berries and almond crunch - with 4 spoons!
~
After lunch, we ventured to Anderson Hill where we sat and had another glass of wine...
~
~
~
~
~
Our designated driver had a soft drink and was given an Easter egg as her reward!
~
Then we hopped in the car and choofed off down some country roads to another winery...
~
~
This is Golding Wines - stunning grounds....
~
Wood fired pizzas and platters are on offer...
~
~
One more for the road and a macchiato for the driver...
~
It was chill out time when we got home, Bri making use of her hammock...
~
I made flat breads to have with some beef skewers Gus was barbecuing for dinner...
~
Beef skewers with red chimichurri sauce...
~
We finished off the evening by watching Shrek and then I left Bri and Gus to it as they then started watching a Batman movie - I do not like Batman movies! 
~
This is my haul of Easter chocolates - gotta love Red Tulip and Haigh's!
~
Kirby's boyfriend spoiled us with these truffles.
Oh, yum!
 ~
We'll wobble back home today, I hope the traffic won't be too insane.  There'll be lots of city folk heading back from down south so I hope everyone is patient and not crazy on the roads.
I hope you had a nice Easter, we certainly did!
~
Cheers - Joolz xx
