Much merriment in our house when we pulled these two outta the ground ( and yes, am well aware of the puns there!!). Well, what can you say?
Seen too much of this lately, another plane another place....had a great time doing the training.
Alliance Group Ltd's meat plant at Mataura. Interesting wee place and original home of one of New Zealand's Golden Sons - Justin Marshall. Mind you, it is the kind of sleepy hollow that is easy to blink and miss. It was a gloriously sunny day this day however, even tho' it started off very foggy and chilly. Really reminded me of that Barbra Streisand movie "On a clear day you can see forever"....as you can see by the photo below.... This photo is what the end of our country looks like, next stop Antarctica! Rather bleak look out but the seafood from these parts is fan-bloody-tastic. So fresh and succlent, everything is so clear as well. Standing there is almost like being on the bow of a big ship - say the Titanic?? but without the same disastrous result! You know the feeling, like you could step over the edge.
When I finally got home, the first thing that greeted me as I drove up was this wonderful rose bush in full glory - it is named El Dorado and I'm amazed it is still blooming so well as we are getting closer to autumn with each popping wine cork. Yes, I know, most wine bottles these days have screw caps (now now OC, don't start...) but to be honest I reckon you can't beat that glorious pop that goes with a cork being extracated!
I'll be putting up the Fruity Pork Curry recipe shortly, be warned to be stunnned more than you would by this....
