It’s winter, I’m a Melbournite, thus I’m all about the footy, or AFL to be exact at the moment. I’ll be upfront too, we are a Hawks family…I used to be a (and secretly still love) North Melbourne gal but hubby has converted me to the brown and gold. Tonight my two teams play each other..and we’ll be there!
What’s your bevvie of choice for footy viewing? If we are at the game, mine is generally coffee and hot chocolate for the warmth and occasionally a glass of red before we go to our seats. At home though, it’s definitely a good robust red…and usually from my latest Vinomofo purchase!
So you’ve clicked buy on the wine (using the link www.vinomofo.com/lifelovesandliz to score $25 off your first order of course!), now to organise the food to scoff while you quaff 😉
Serve your pies with these fab homemade potato wedges…I like to do half regular potato & half sweet potato or sometimes even carrot using the purple heirloom variety as well for extra colour & fun!
This is one of my fave lamb shanks recipes (yes I have a few!) but this one with silverbeet is right up there! I will say though, I’m a bit lazy and tend to piff it all in the slow cooker rather than fluffing about with the oven and then use the oven at the end for the colour & caramelising #Shhhhh
With all the vino and food sorted, all you need to do is prep your possy on the couch, whack on the club song for a bit of a pre-game rev up and you’re done! 😉 Hubs and the babes are going to so love me for this post!! Their team, the food and the wine (for the grown ups anyways!)
Have a fabulous weekend, ready for the last week of the school term (for Victorians at least) and keep your eyes peeled for the awesome kiddy activities I’ve got for you next week! xx
