Vodka Cocktail what a great nite out!

Bloody Mary Cocktail with Bacon! Bloody Mary Cocktail with Bacon

At a recent celebration (yes alright I will admit it was my Birthday and I am not getting any younger.) we visited the cocktail lounge The Fix bar at the Surfers Paradise Hilton.

I know I am quite partial to Bloody Mary’s as I enjoy the spiciness of them and the burning aftertaste they leave in your mouth. So when I spotted something that included bacon essence AND Bacon I couldn’t resist!

I didn’t watch the Bartender make it but I have some photos for you (apologies about the darkness…it is a lounge bar after all)


Fast Breakfast vs Healthy Breakfast

Healthy Breakfast cooked by your loved one on a Sunday morning! I am not sure it gets any better than that. But the jury is out on whether that Breakfast was considered Healthy or Fast food. I will leave this call up to you. Feel free to leave a comment.

Being a Bachelor living on my own I only occasionally get a cooked breakfast that isn’t the usual male style of bacon and eggs so an occasion when my lady offers to cook is truly worthy of a post.

Healthy Eating – Almond Fennel Salad

Healthy Eating: Fresh picked FennelRecently visited my uncle (a passionate healthy food creator) and had the pleasure of tasting his Almond Fennel salad. Cooked with fresh fennel from his own little herb garden.

He whipped through the making pretty quick and I was struggling to take notes but here was his verbal recipe directions.

Lemon Juice, Oil and Salt into a bowl. Add Pepper.

Trim and chop up a couple of the fennel bulbs.

Chop up 2 tablespoons of the fennel fronds.

Add almonds and the lemon mixture together and combine it all up.

Final result…Delicious!.

Pulled Pork Burger

Pulled Pork BurgerI recently had the good luck to find an American style BBQ place locally that obviously specialized in that great American tradition of charcoal slow cooked meats.

I don’t know about you but the description alone sounds tempting doesn’t it!!

I managed to pry the plate out of my lady’s hand long enough to get a quick photo before we both sampled the food and I will tell you now it was heaven.

An American style coleslaw on the side, Battered fries and vinegar based North Carolina style pulled pork on a crusty bread roll.
