Munchies at Misuzu’s…

Delicious dinner with the lovely ladies at Misuzu’s! A restaurant with 3 doorways… One end is meant to be lighter and less expensive. Izakaya style – a drinking place first with food to accompany. The other end is a more formal japanese restaurant. And in the middle it’s take-away for the lucky Albert Park locals.

An old favourite! A very special old favourite for some… we witnessed a proposal on this particular evening… really only given away by the excited squeal of the lucky lady!

We shared a bunch of starters, a little sashimi and a sneaky, and super tasty bottle of Riesling…

Crispy free range chicken tossed in black bean sauce
Pork gyoza
Crispy tofu in dashi broth with enoki tempura

Misuzu’s is always delicious and always pretty ext… Save it up for the special people!

Clean and Lean cooking at home… by me… Frank… YUM!

So, I have recently been trialling the Clean and Lean phenomena… It’s kind of obvious but sometimes you just need someone to write it in a book and thanks to James Duigan I have been cooking some amazing meals at home. This is not bride diet by the way… It’s way too early to start that. I have definitely been interspersing Clean and Lean with the odd cheesecake or two… hhmmmm…

A couple of awesome brekkies:

Oat and ricotta pancake served with greek yogurt and strawberries
Poached eggs on asparagus

And a couple of dinners:

Turkey burger on cape seed roll (not exactly Clean and Lean… bread = bad but at least it’s super grainy)
Cajun chicken served on quinoa and avocado with a capsicum, asparagus & corn salsa

Lucky groom don’t you think?!

Delicious and healthy but also expensive and fiddlely…. I wonder how long I will last…
