Another Lunch At Cat’s

7 Sep

Last Saturday, before James and I headed out for dinner with our friends, we popped by Cat’s place for a barbecue lunch. Cat wanted to show the our cousins her new place, though we were missing Klene and Ray (who are in Sydney) and Haruka (who is holidaying in Japan).

The weather was nice and sunny (though a little windy) and everyone loved the backyard, especially the chickens. Henry said he was glad Haruka wasn’t there because she would have been super jealous.

As always, the food was great. From memory there were a mixture of marinated chicken ribs (tandoori, honey soy, and barbecue), lamb skewers, grilled vegetables, grilled corn (Cat had thoughtfully provided some un-buttered corn for me!), a herb pull-apart bread, two kinds of potato salad, and green salad.

This was my plate – look at all the pretty colours.

Scott was a bit worried at barbecuing because apparently his previous attempts have ended in meat sticking to the grill, but he did a great job with the meat. Apparently they got their (nearly unused) barbecue and a full gas bottle for $60.

Cat was also kind enough to let James sample her Laphroaig scotch whisky (I’m vaguely remembering quarter cask?) and James is keen to add it to his scotch wars lineup.

    Quarter cask is correct – it’s pretty peaty. One of my friends described it as ‘a kick in the teeth’ =)

      I asked James whether he thought the Laphroaig was peaty.

      James: I don’t know what peaty is. =(

      When he picked the Glenrothes as being fruity, we checked the back of the box and were so excited when he was correct.
