Kinross Woolshed

Whoohooo, another road trip, this time we bid Brett "Adios" and gathered in Kinross Woolshed for a farewell lunch. My first thought on getting the invite was, "what? We're going to a woolshed? Why why why?"

When we got there, I took one look at the surroundings and I was immediately in love with Kinross Woolshed. It is so Australian and in the country outback and any minute now, I am sure Hugh Jackman is going to wander in, lay down his whip, plonked himself down for a beer.

Hmmm, where is that man? Gahhhh! Oh well, one can only dream. Since there was no Hugh Jackman that arvo, I will settle for a big-assed plate of ribs. Oh, are you allowed to say big ass on a food blog? LOL, I just did.

Let's start with the food porn. I can't tell you what the other dishes taste like but my ribs was superb. It was outstanding. My plate was massive, the meat just fell off the bone, it was so tender. I loved the smokey barbeque sauce and it was served with seasoned wedges and side salad. Salad was impressive, not your usual limpy lettuce and basic tomatoes like some places. I love the mixed greens with different varieties of lettuce, julienne of carrots and cucumber and sprouts with a light tangy dressing.

As you can see, I love road trips ;)

How cute are these guys? They do remind me of New Zealand and Footrot Flats. Check out the lightings, just gorgeous!

See what I mean, I would love a house in the woop woop like this...

This place is a must to visit, it has a huge atrium out in the back patio with gorgeous scenery and served  a reasonably priced lunchtime menus and Specials. My ribs were $28.00 from Ala Carte Menu and worth every cents. It was lip smacking good! Desserts were $7.90 I think.

Finally desserts, as if I could eat any more, it's a do or die.....LOL and a foodie never surrenders!!!

There was a selection of Banana Caramel Meringue cake, Lemon Tart, Choc Mars Bar cake and finally Cherry Ripe Cake and more... #faints! I went for the choc mars bar cake, as usual, my eyes were bigger than my tummy! It was a superb lunch. I couldn't recommend it enough. Thoroughly enjoyable. Perfect place! Luv luv luv The Kinross Woolshed!

Finally it was time to bid farewell to Brett and Murphy the sheep ;) and head back to Wagga.

I leave you with this photo ;)

Okay he is no Hugh Jackman but isn't he cute?

Breakfast at the Coffee Club

All this talk on Twitter last nite with some gal friends has made me wanting to buy a bread maker. I need to be making my own cinnamon scrolls for breaky. They look so good on Selina's instagram. I am super jealous. What can you do when you haven't got one yet? You go out to breakfast, of course ;)

I dropped the boy off at his hobby club, he goes to play role playing war games every Sunday with a bunch of kids at the local Community Centre. I headed out to the Coffee Club in Glenfield, it is not too far from my place. I normally shop at South City Mall.

It was very busy, the place was packed. Looks like everyone in that suburb had the same idea. I was warned that there would be a 25 minutes wait for food to arrive. I didn't mind. I was not in a rush to get anywhere. Just some groceries later and home. So I ordered my food and sat down to play with my iPhone.

These are the photos that I took with the smartphone whilst waiting.

Breakfast was excellent, the bacon could have been a bit crispier, I did asked for crispy bacon. As I am paying for it as a side order, maybe I should have sent it back. The French toast was soft and fluffy, sprinkled with icing powder and topped with strawberries. I had to ask for my maple syrup. Maybe it was forgotten. Who serves French Toast without maple syrup? I had a cappuccino with my breaky. After a few mouthfuls, all was forgiven. It was delicious. Maybe someone got a bit flustered and forgetful when busy.

Would I go back and spend another $20 for breaky on another weekend? Yes! Definitely! The wait wasn't that long and I am sure the service delivery can improve. Plus I want my bacon crispy! So yeah, I will be back.
