A Beautiful Hills Garden...

This week I took some photos at the private garden "Hillcrest"
it's quite sloping so you get a bit of a work out.
However the planting and the views are beautiful.

Chick Pea Aioli...

With Garlic, Parsley, Lemon and Olive Oil.

Over Broad Beans and Sautéed Cauliflower. And a bit of leftover Steak on the side.

Simple and delicious, although the Broad Bean shelling is a labour of love...
don't get me wrong, it was worth it.

Steak Sandwich...

Pan fried Steak with Lemon Mushrooms and Blue Cheese.

You have to get in and pile it up on the slices of toast,
the cheese is creamy, the mushrooms are tangy
 and you find yourself going mmmm...
with your elbows resting on the table.

Successful Saturday meal for one...

Broad Beans...

Broad Beans fresh from from the church garden.

Simmered, skinned and combined with,
Garlic, Capers, Anchovy, Black Olive, Tomato, Sour cream, Salt and Pepper.
 Served on top of toasted Sour Dough.
Garnished with Parmigiano....
Some things taste better than they look, and this is one...
they were absolutely delicious.

A tray of Strawberry and Mango Sorbet for my neighbours,
 who've been out in the hot sun, burning off this afternoon.

And some for me...

Yum, this is when it's worth having a Thermomix.

More Flowers...

Some close ups of the ones on my bench from yesterday,
 the grey background is actually from the fly screen over the window.
