Nature at work. Intricate, enduring, useful, beautiful. St Kilda, Melbourne, Australia.
Arrive at Bunnings Warehouse, Port Melbourne, to find it’s not open until 1pm (because of Anzac Day public holiday).
Angst and sorrow tho assuaged with a free sausage.
Amazing how a little mustard, tomato sauce and onions can lift one’s spirits …
Something different: corned beef not boiled but roasted in the air fryer oven.
Rinsed under the tap then cooked 20 mins on high, 30 mins on low.
Crusty surface, tender, moist, salty and very, very tasty. Hot or cold.
Also, it doesn’t shrink like a normal roast.
Bon appetit …
Easter Monday Morning. A grey, sullen sky and a chill in the wind as if Winter’s icy fingertips are creeping around the corner.
Shake off the gloom, grab the hat and saunter down to Fitzroy Street, St Kilda, in search of a sign life … and here it is, The Grocery Bar where breakfast is big and the warm smile is free.
Two hash browns, baby spinach hiding under scrambled eggs, smashed avo, and owner Georgia’s home-made tomato relish. $16.90.
This is the way to greet the day.
The Sun is even poking through the clouds …
