To begin this “hump day” meal Diane made us a delicious antipasto plate of the usual suspects: dried olives, pickled mushrooms and artichoke hearts with some toasts spread with Di’s pesto.
Last night Diane made a beautiful pork steak dish smothered in tomatoes with black olives and flavoured with garlic, rosemary and sage.
We had only half of the salad that Diane had made because the pork was so filling.
As a beverage we enjoyed a bottle of Penfold’s Koonunga Hill Siraz Cabernet from South Australia. It is an inexpensive table wine and it was up to that very minimum standard but I am afraid to say that it does not have much personality even by the minimal measure of a table wine.
