Lol Oldschool...yeah my digital camera does the same thing. My stapler only runs out of staples shen I'm using it....how does that happen????:look:
We had some vegetarian/pescetarian friends for dinner last night. They were tasty...low fat content though :crazy:
Dips - cream cheese & chilli sauce with cream cheese and onion crackers
Hummous dip with pita crisps sprinkled with paprika (pita bread cut into wedges, sprayed with oil, sprinkled with paprika, baked till crisp)
Mini quiches with creamy mushroom, egg, onion and cheesy filling
Vegetarian Spring Rolls
Main - BBQ'd kebabs - both types with quartered mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, red onion, spring onion stalks, green capsicum squares, both marinated in lemon and olive oil.
Veg. option had marinated tofu.
Pescetarian had chunks of barramundi.
Took only few minutes (could spend lots of time with guests) - so nice
Also did pizzas, one with mozarella, sprinkle of parmesan grated and oregano. Topped with some torn basil after cooking.
Other with cheddar, parmesan, roasted red capsicum slices, red onion diced, sliced mushrooms portabello, pickled halapeno chilli discs, smoked paprika and oregano. Spicy but yum
Salad of mixed lettuce leaves and herbs, cherry tomatoes, couple of chopped avacado, mayo and sour cream dressing (half/half)
Rice papers softened then filled with mung bean sprouts, very finely sliced mangetout, carrots, spring onion stalks, glass (vermicelli) rice noodles, swipe of sweet chilli sauce, wrapped like a spring roll, chilled then sliced in half on the diagonal and served on long lettuce leaves for wrapping and crunching
Soda bread and salted butter
Made chocolates fudge - can of sweetened condensed milk (250 ml) with 300 g dark belgium chocolate, some pulverised pistachios, touch of vanilla essence.
As it was Easter, got my rabbit moulds out and melted some dark chocolate mixed with some plain chocolate. They both went down well, some percolated blue mountain stlye coffee.
Visitors brought a yummy dark iced chocolate cake (about to have left overs with coffee...drool :) )
It was a great night - had some varied beers and some local Tasmanian white wines...
that night goes down as a favourite. Plus they just dropped around some of their homegrown apples as a thankyou (they smell so much better than supermarket types).....feeling very warm and fuzzy now
