How, you might ask, does this cynic form the belief that one day she was just simply MEANT to have prawn Caesar salad for dinner?
One. A PR Company send you Cardini’s Caesar Dressing.
You get let out from your job search appointment early because they think you’re awesome for getting and interview, and Steel Street Seafoods have an actual GLUT of prawns (seriously, they ordered 300kg when they really only meant to order 150) and so have them tempting you as you wander to the supermarket.
And so you complete the picture with croutons, anchovies bacon and lettuce.
This week we have the margarita… We used tequila, triple sec and lime juice in a ratio of 2 – 0.5 – 1 (4-1-2 for 2) as I’m not too much of a fan of the sweet stuff. We also mixed it up with limes and lemons because limes are freakin’ expensive at the moment, and friends and family keep giving us free lemons!
This, along with a chicken caesar salad using the yummy gluten free Orgran herbed quinoa croutons fueled a night of Guitar/Band Hero shenanigans.
Just back from a very filling lunch at the (surprisingly hipster) Cafe Macquarie in Belmont. Why surprisingly? Well, I just didn’t picture mason jar iced coffees in the highway suburb of Belmont. Nor the haloumi salad with quinoa that I nommed down!
Haloumi Salad with quinoa and greens, $17.50
The greens were a lovely mix – snow peas, broccoli, asparagus, fresh mint leaves, baby spinach and sprouts, with the crunch of pistachio nuts and the zesty lemon juice.
Club sandwich with chips, $15.50
These chips were awesomely crunchy! Would be lovely on their own or with their house made aioli.
The cafe was also involved in the “Block by Block” street art project that’s brightened up the ageing building in the area
