Spring has Sprung!
The cherry blossoms are out, the magnolias are blooming and even the pear trees are coming out in style.
Despite Niki's winterial preference, I was about to announce that here in Melbourne, Spring has definitely sprung! But Melbourne has weather as capricious as a starlet's hairstyle, and despite the fact that yesterday we had the warmest August night since they began recording such things, today I sit here, listening to hail fall on the roof. I can see the small icy pebbles hitting the ground - smack! smack! smack!
So yesterday I was thinking of little lamb cutlets and delicate salmon steaks. Now I think I'll go cook up a batch of lamb shanks - french cut, $2.00 each at the butcher's on special.
