To order...

Shanks Greek style: decent white, olive oil, garlic, oregano, plenty of salt and cracked pepper, marjoram and - in this case - done in a Sunbeam electric skillet (on 2.5) for some four hours (potatoes halved and chucked in at the start)

A little Father Park reading in the background (a magisterial monograph on its third time through it must be said). The good Father gets to do some whilst the Lady Rectoress and the postulants holiday at Port Macquarie with the in-laws. I can only take so many... Christmas and April have seen that "many" reached.

So I cook shanks, drink black beer and read ancient history. How very strange....

Great food.(those shanks look yummy)
Your favourite tipple.
A good book.

Sounds bloody marvellous to me, Mike!

Anne- Marie and the kids get to see (her) family..

Sounds like a win for all, eh?

Yes indeed. Alan has flown over from Perth and is up at "Port" with the mother and sister-in-law and my lot. They'll be back this weekend for Al's 60th and Mum's 83rd (I think).

Oh goody: more black and shiraz.

And Warren Zevon belts from my stereo (there is no other way to describe him) singing Lawyers, Guns and Money.

A song, if I recall, Caz has an attachment of sorts to....
