I've been making quite a bit of spaghetti lately.

I've always loved the seafood pasta with white wine that you could order from the restaurant. I find that its much better than pasta with thick sauce like bolognese. So, with a recipe I plucked off the net, I went and bought some marinara mix and mussels, and came up with this.

There's some white wine in there as well, plus a couple of cloves of garlic and some chopped tomatoes. All in all, I considered this a very successful venture.

This is what it looked like in a bowl. That whole pan amounted to 2 bowls of this, which I finished. 

Also, using very similar ingredients, I also replaced all the seafood (except the prawns) with meatballs, removed the white wine, added some mushrooms, and came up with a surf and turf pasta, which I think was very good as well, but a picture of that was not taken.

And finally, again, using the same ingredients as the previous pasta, but this time using minced meat and not meatballs, I made the same thing, except I also dumped a whole can of Campbell mushroom and chicken soup inside, coming up with this, which was also very good:

I ventured to finish that by myself in a single setting, and I usually succeed, but this time, the creaminess of the whole thing just got the better of me, and for the first time since living outside, I actually set some aside in the fridge and ate it the next morning.

And what exactly was the whole point of this? Well, I haven't been taking pictures of food from restaurants much lately, so I had to come up with my own things to fill this space up.

Bye bye.

Vic Harbour

Docklands has plenty of restaurants to choose from. Vic Harbour is one of them.

Chorizo and grilled bread and what tasted like the chinese dark soy sauce drizzled all over it. Nothing very much to say about this.

I think this lacked a bit of basic seasoning, but upon the sprinkling of some salt, I thought it was awesome. I love the seafood and the tomato base to the extremely (olive) oily pasta ;p

Surf and turf! The prawns went very very well with the medium rare steak, and the potato mash (obscured from view) and the red wine jus.

And finally, sticky date pudding to finish it up.

Crepes in Geelong

And we're back in business!

I suppose I'll start with something relevant, considering I just got back from Geelong, and this could also be a study in comparison of crepes. ^^

So we see a crepe in the middle, drizzled with chocolate sauce and chocolate crunchy bits, a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side, a dollop of cream, and one slice of orange.

Death by Chocolate, that's what it was called.

Was struggling to finish it towards the end, but no, wasn't anywhere near Death.


For those in Geelong, this is on Ryrie Street, next to Baskin Robbins, which is next to McDonald's.
