Steak and seafood

I wanted to do steak and chimichurri sauce i made. I didn’t really like the sauce but when i team it with the rest of the plate it was ok. This plate was 2 serves for me. I could only eat half and kept rest for another meal. (The chips fish cocktail and sea shanty with aioli for me is 1 meal in itself). Hubby ate the lot in one go. The Chimichurri sauce was a recipe from a free magazine I picked up at the supermarket.

Barb’s gluten free bread

Through 2 failed attempts to get this right i managed a 3rd loaf using gluten-free flours, lactose-free milk and yogurt and organic free range egg for this bread. Nice crusty bread. I found the gluten free flour in Coles supermarket. It was really nice. Tip:  if you need to toast or reheat it just sprinkle a light sprinkle of water and it comes out like its just been baked.
