We are on a bit of a burger-consuming spree at the moment. Probably bad for the waist and general health, but great for my wellbeing. Good Burger=Happy Bordeaux. Last week we went out for them twice. Once at Royale and then again at some place the name of which I have completely forgotten. It starts with a B. This coming Saturday we are going back to Royale with some friends and when we decided to invite a friend over for dinner last night I decided on burgers for dinner. Told you we were on a spree.
We started the evening by enjoying the refreshing popular cup, a retro drink Alexander mixed earlier in the day for our picnic lunch.
For dinner I decided to have everyone assemble their own meals, instead of struggling with this part in the kitchen. I enjoy the idea of an interactive meal. I set out the cooked burgers, Italian rolls, caramelized onions, rocket, yogurt and dill dip, chutney and a mayo and sri-ratcha dip on the table alongside the roasted root vegetables (sweet potatoes, potatoes, kohlrabi and whole garlic). Simple!
I decided to serve Eaton mess for desert; it seemed a fun way to end the evening. No pictures of those unfortunately as they turned out to be a hot mess, I managed to burnt the meringues. Still tasted okay though.
It was a fun evening with good food and great company, accompanied by bottles of Beyerskloof Pinotage our generous host brought along. Needless to say I woke up this morning feeling a little brittle and am still suffering a little from over indulgence at the moment. I do so not enjoy aging…
