Since moving in, we have hosted a couple of simple dinners with friends.  Instead of housewarmings…where we invite everyone over at one go, we have chosen to go the intimate route, where we cook a meal and invite a couple of friends over for dinner.  This is what we have cooked at home…well the shots I remembered to take. 🙂

IMG_9147Asian Inspired Braised Lamb Shank with Sweet Potatotes.  This was a nice twist to the usual lamb shank braised in red wine sauce.  This version has fresh mint leaves, lemongrass, star anise, ginger, chilli to name a few ingredients…fuss free and delicious! (meal cost for 6 servings was just under $25)


Skirt Steak with a mushroom sauce.  This was a simple “date night” dinner the man and I had together over the weekend.  🙂 (Meal cost was under $10 for two of us)

Last night we had tom yum seafood soup with rice.  Again very ecnonomical…cost us under $10 to feed four adults.  🙂
