I've got half a steak in the fridge (I made two steaks last night: partner ate one and I ate half of the other), which is kind of a weird thing to be stuck with, so dinner will be either beef and vegetable soup (with cut up steak) and fresh bread, or beef (steak sliced into strips) and prawn stir-fry. Partner gets to choose. Either way, there's plenty of fresh veg still in the garden (kale, silverbeet, carrots, capsicum, spring onion, pumpkin) and in the freezer (beans, corn, tomato) to pad out the bit of beef.

We visited friends today for lunch. Friend is a professional baker and gifted us a loaf of rye bread she'd just made, plus one of her bakery's balsamic onion focaccia (sp?), and also two dozen eggs, which I received with desperate gratitude. It's kind of infuriating that they have three chickens who are churning out an egg a day like machines even this late in autumn, and we've got like FORTY BLOODY CHOOKS and EVERY BLIMMIN' ONE OF THEM is moulting and off the lay. Useless birds.

I took them a kilo of beef mince, a kilo of sausages, a two-kilo topside roast, and a kilo of chuck steak, which they seemed happy to receive. Our circle of friends really is a circle: we just pass things on, one to another, and round it goes.

Frozen cheese tortellini & beef raviolis, jarred spaghetti sauce, steamed broccoli.

(In no mood for fancy kitchen-work today.)

The choice for dinner last night was soup.

Tonight will be beef stew.

Pesto chicken from Trader Joe's (I broiled it). Farro, steamed asparagus, and corn bread from yesterday baking session. DH just asked me to make chicken mole soon. I haven't made mole in 30 years; should be interesting!

Last night: Salmon with beurre blanc sauce and roasted asparagus, and for dessert roasted rhubarb with custard sauce. Tonight: steak with shallots and more roasted asparagus. And blueberries, maybe with leftover custard sauce.
