Avocadoswere on offer in Woolies during one of our grocery shopping nights so A turned it into a lovely appetiser with prawns and a dash of lemon. J had his with Victoria Bitter (right) which is a popular Australian beer. I don't like avocados because of the creamy texture and taste but I really liked the way she did the dish. The rest of them loved the avocado which was nicely ripened and I'm sure it made a great combination with the prawns.
For mains, we had creamy carbonara with garlic bread on the side. For a non-carbonara fan, I have to say that it was really good! It wasn't cloyingly creamy like how some places do it and was full of bacon slices that added a lovely smokiness to the dish.
I do miss having nice dinners like that. The rat-race and mad traffic here doesn't quite offer me that luxury anymore so I suspect there are going to be a lot more food review posts than cooking posts to come! But I'll try my best during the weekends to sharpen those dodgy cooking skills to be as good as Boo_licious, BabeKL and all the other great cooks out there! ;)
