Above Entree: Gazpacho with persian feta.
Because we didn't start ordering till 9:00pm we decided that 2 courses would be enough. Most people went for a main and dessert as opposed to entree and main.
Mains: I got the special of the day: Alantic crispy skin (something - not salmon) with a fennel and dill salad, rosted potatoes and grapefruit. Despite me not being a big fan of dill, I still give this dish 10 thumbs up!
1. Spiced lamb loin with crushed chickpeas, spinach and sheep’s yoghurt
2. Grilled spatchcock with pea and pancetta puree, chicken jus
1. Buttermilk pudding with summer berries
2. Chocolate marquise, macerated strawberries and clotted cream.
Betty enojyed her Buttermilk dessert but I wasn't a big fan because the buttermilk had a funny sour flavour? the chocolate marquise is a VERY rich dessert so it would be great for the chocolate lovers. If I were to go again, I would go with entree and main instead of main and dessert.
Opening the presents!
Lisa got a dress and earrings that were very Lisa! Belinda got a new bikini, earrings and a fondue set.
Betty's present was made up of more than 5 things (I can't remember what they all were now) and Roula who has renovated her room got some really nice things from Country Road.
Part of Lisa's present for Kat was a Seduce top, to her dismay Katina had bought the top herself and was wearing it at KK dinner! (Note the top that Kat is wearing and the top that Betty is holding in her hand. I think Betty's laughter said it all!) Christina on the other hand was very pleased with her new Morrissey dress.
I had Dee and I bought her some Chanel earrings and an underwear set which caused the guys from the next table to cheer out loud!
Nat received a beautiful George necklace and a voucher for 2 people to go para sailing at Manly. I didn't get any pictures of myself but I received a beautiful Oroton Red soft leather clutch from Roula (Thank you so much!)
Here is to another successful KK dinner! Thanks for all the effort in putting together your gifts!
Merry Christmas Y'all
