My BBQ Glendale takeaway

We’ve gotten food from My BBQ at Glendale a few times now – Chinese takeaways with rice or noodles beds, steamed dumplings, and delicious roast duck!

Last night we had a Guitar Hero night with my sister and her boyfriend, and got two $10 takeaway tubs with rice and noodles, along with Mongolian beef, chicken satay, honey chicken, oyster sauce stirfry, mixed veges, beef n blackbean, plus a tub of 10 seafood dumplings for $9.50.

So much yums to fuel our crappy performances ;)

I have eaten so much cheese and dranken so many wines,

And I pledge to bring them all.

but for now. The Hottest 100 from 1996 is my life soundtrack.

Because that’s when I discovered that there was music.

We’ll be decked in all black!


Mmm Hunter Belle Cheese Brie. Shortdated so only $3 instead of 11!

Birthday sponge cake with Makka Pakka, Hello Kitty, Orange Frog

It was my birthday on Wednesday, the ripe old age of 33. Celebrated with a trip to the Pokolbin Vineyards and Tacos with the family. The Winery visits will be shared with you soon, but here’s my awesome birthday cake, with Makka Pakka, Hello Kitty and Random Orange Frog figurines /slash/ cake toppers added by the delightful little people in my life.

So, this Friday we have two lovely wines from the Angel Funded Naked Wines, which never fails to delight!

Andevine Cab Sav

The Andevine Hilltops Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 was a “bonus” for me this month in my case. Not the usual style we drink, but as soon as it was poured, it was a winner. I can’t always smell the spice or chocolate, but this had chocolate notes for sure! And went down just as well as chocolate ;)

Brian Fletcher Shiraz

Our other newbie this week was the Brian Fletcher Estate Western Australian Shiraz 2013, which was a suggestion based on my usual purchases from Naked, and I’m glad I slipped two into this order because it was well received with the Hunter Belle blue we were finishing off :)

Tried any new wine lately?

Smelly Cheese Shop Pokolbin

We went on a spontaneous trip to the Hunter Valley Smelly Cheese Shop in Pokolbin, partly to eat yummy cheeses, but also to give B’s car a good run on the expressway.

Smelly Cheese Shop Pokolbin

Overwhelmed with options, we bought a takeaway platter with a creamy blue, a cheddar, brie, washed ring cheese, labneh and feta for $30. Oh and a wedge of Hunter Belle Cheese’s Blue Moon because the local IGA doesn’t seem to stock it any more! :(

Smelly Cheese Shop Pokolbin

We then do a smidgeon of wine tasting in the next shop, Pokolbin Winemakers Outlet, a little boutique selling only wines made in the Hunter from Hunter grown grapes. I ask to try the Audrey Wilkinson 2011 Shiraz and the Pinot, and the lovely woman in the shop suggests we try the, equally priced, but on her recommendation better, Ferraris Estate 2011 Shiraz.

Smelly Cheese Shop Pokolbin

Having not heard of Ferraris Estate before, I needed to know more! They are a very small business, growing only 2 grape varieties – Shiraz and Chardonnay, and producing only three wines – Shiraz, Chardonnay, and a Shiraz Rose, all very dry. They had a great crop in 2011, which they picked at the right time, while Audrey Wilkinson apparently slightly missed the right harvest time that year. So, we took home the delicious Ferraris Shiraz for $22.

Little Spoon Frozen Greek Yoghurt from Aldi

July 20, 2015

I love the tang of Greek yoghurt, and while I’m a fan of frozen treats, I don’t like how sweet many frozen yoghurts are :( Yes, I’ll cover tangy yoghurt in chocolate flakes and lychee balls at Yogoberry, but sweet yoghurt itself? Ew! Which is why I swooped on the four pack of these tiny […]

July 19, 2015

I read too much online. Too many stories about the gov being arseholes. Them being dickheads to asylum seekers, or being bitches to those on Newstart or the DSP. Them wanting to tell us we are and make us feel like second class citizens…. because we don’t have a job, because we “claim” to have […]
