Gates and Fences

Gates and fences attract my eye as I drive to work through Bayside suburbs
Pristine white, low and verysmart
Below: Again bright white and this time with two beautifully painted pillars

Below: White again with scallops and palings a little more spaced out. ( or maybe this is how I feel somedays ?? you've just got to LOL )

Below: Cream paint and a small pergola over the gate..this style of gate seems very popular of late.

Below: Similar fence and gate this time in green. While it is a very good shade of green it loses some of the impact being in a colour don't you agree.

What's Been on the Menu No 28

Pork tried the new sous vide way of cooking ....think I should have left it in the water bath for longer than 2 hours as it wasn't especially melt in the mouth. The purple cabbage was a hit.

I went to Jamie Olivers' cooking show at the HiSense Arena (looking abit tatty) and while I enjoyed it very much I was glad the tickets were a gift as I wouldn't have paid $100 for a seat.

He was his "sorry Luv" as usual but the most hilarious part was when he cooked a meal while playing the drums.... had me in fits of laughter and his sing along song Lamb Curry has a way of lingering in the mind (unfortunately) lol.

Below is his chicken fillet wrapped in prosciutto and filled with parmesan cheese and sprinkle of thyme very easy to do.

Below: My Bruschetta...
chopped tomatoes, red onions (sliced very fine) olives and fetta served on lettuce and a toasted turkish roll and drizzled with french dressing

What's for Dessert

Delicious cake for a birthday. The cream layer inside was passionfruit.
There's nothing like it, well perhaps the lie down is good too.

Where are we?

Callignee is situated in the foothills of the Strezlecki 's in Gippsland, Victoria.
