Looking a bit more structured. I also thinned out the seedlings and used the shoots in a lovely bowl of soup for lunch....
It's great to have a garden Monday!
|A little while back I went to the Park Hyatt|
for a work function with Mark.
I was able to take a few pix while we were there.
|It's all very shiny and grand...lots of architectural features and art pieces.|
|This one is rather beautiful.|
|The entree was a Lamb roulade with salad.|
|The mains was either Chicken...|
|A grand staircase.|
|Lots of mirrors and panelling.|
|A couple of weeks ago a friend gave us some beautiful Figs.|
I cut almost to the base, through the middle(into quarters).
Then wrapped the base and sides with Prosciutto and stuffed the middle with soft Blue Cheese.
They were baked in a moderate oven for around 15-20 minutes ...
till the Prosciutto is crunchy.
Then we enjoyed them with a glass of Rose
|Ready for the oven.|
|They were really delicious...|
|The old homestead at the Seppelts property.|
|We went on a tour of the underground drives....|
|There are over 2 km of tunnels burried under the winery|
and its pretty much full of aging wine and old french mould.
|The crest of honour.|
|Certain dignitaries have private vaults to hold their collections,|
this one belonged to Malcom Fraser.
|So many different tunnels and features all butied in an underground warren.|
|Apparently Dame Nellie Melba had a bath in Shiraz...|
somewhere in this private lair, back in the day.
|The old French method of making sparkling wine.|
|The off limits museum with limited editions of all the vintages.|
Practically no one gets to enter in here.
|We tasted lots of wines at the end and finished on a big note with the $100.00 bottle shiraz.|
