hot...hot..hot...


another scorcher today ... in the high 30's again and storms brewing so the humidity is climbing and makes everything pretty uncomfortable and as we dont have air conditioning [which i don't want anyway] life is a bit sticky..
still we are in australia and here in wa we still have seasons and feb is the hottest month ...
in south australia they are having it hard with temps over 44 and bush fires are raging at the moment...
here in oz we have a total fire ban at the moment as everything is tinderbox dry but can you believe it that the majority of fires are started on purpose!
we purchased the big green egg at xmas and have only just started to cook on it.
it is a ceramic type grill or barbeque and you can control the temp- which is why i love it.
you use charcoal and it is ready to use in 6 mins .i have never really been comfortable in using the gas barbeque ,i know that it is easy but to me thats not the point..
cooking [ for me anyway] is a way to relax and appreciate really good ingredients and cooking outdoors is wonderful to me as for the first 40 yrs i was stuck in a kitchen in the uk and all i did was cook inside ...so when we came here i had the chance to cook outside which i love as the climate so permits it..
last night we had pork t bones[free range of course] and roasted summer vegetables [ all organic] yumm...
well of to buy alpaca muesli and some chewy chews for elsa have a great weekend...

I've been reading on the internet about your awesome heat. The outdoor cooker sounds like a wonderful idea for the weather. Your dinner menu made me hungry!
