Sausage rolls, sake, passionfruit soufflé and chocolate raspberry macarons

Jaso is back in town and we caught up with him for dinner. One of his comments to me was ‘you don’t blog enough’ which is true. In my defence, I’ve been keeping up my new year resolution of keeping a journal (like a real paper based one haha) so there’s already too much daily writing.

I know my subject title suggests a very odd meal but actually this is a mish mash blog post of past activities. Last Friday my sisters and I went out to watch Les Misérables and had our pre show lunch at Bistro Guillaume. It was a birthday treat from my sisters, hehe, I love musicals so it was great fun. We had cocktails to start off the fun afternoon.

Our pre show lunch was nice, I enjoyed the passionfruit soufflé, I’m not sure why I like soufflés so much, maybe because they’re notorious for being difficult to bake. I must try making some one day.

My own baking, sausage rolls which are a true and tried recipe. Mine feature lots of fennel and also apple and are a favourite in the office.

Crumbed soft shell crab salad at Darlings Supper Club in Northbridge. This was a Friday evening after work when R and I headed into town. It was actually really tasty, the crumb was great (I think they used quinoa) and the salad which was Asian inspired tasted like som tum salad and was very appetizing.

Pork belly and prawn vietnamese rolls which were very tasty too. Darlings Supper Club has great little share plates  which are perfect washed down with sake or beer.

I babysat (even though she’s no longer a baby) Kaka today, my first attempt so I was a bit nervous but it was a breeze and she was such a delight. She spied my Christmas present of a Adriano Zumbo macaron kit back in December and kept asking whether she could bake macarons with me. So we finally baked them today. Isn’t she cute in her chef outfit?

The macarons didn’t end up looking like macarons (more like pink cookies haha) but they tasted pretty yummy according to Kaka. She was very generous and allocated individual macarons for her mummy, daddy, mah-mah (that’s my mum), gun-gun, Tristan.. then she said ‘and one for my Daitaoha yee yee because I love you’ *heart melt into puddle* I could have easily bought her all the icecream in the world then. But she was very good and only ate one macaron as promised.

It promises to be a hot Australia Day long weekend, yeah, I love long weekends :).
