Geezer birthday reprise

Well they're such attention seekers there was no way the birthday was going to last one night.
The original plan was to go to the Hamilton balloon festival and then come back to our place for dinner. Unfortunately the weather was utter shit so staying home and watching the Chiefs (my home town rugby team) draw 26-26 with the Bulls (saffy bastards) was the order of the day. Of course the referee was blind etc and played a big part in the home side not winning. In between times I put up a kitchen wall cabinet, built a kit set wardrobe and installed new light fittings so was feeling very manly.
This is a lovely piece of meat and pricey. It is sirloin steak from our friendly local organic butcher.

After oiling the meat and rolling in ground salt and pepper the steak was seared and then roasted in the oven with the vegetables (potatoes, carrots etc). On the plate you can see Brussel sprouts again and cauliflower cheese and peas. Instead of gravy we used the same butchers meat glaze that was used for the eye fillet. Well anyway it was just delicious. Sorry for not supplying you with a step by step recipe but its basically just a flash roast dinner.

Well you can't have a birthday without a birthday cake so here we go

and a slice

All in all a cool night. We watched Mr & Mrs Smith on satellite which had the expected amounts of bullets flying and bodies counting. We got pretty wasted on various amounts of beer and sauvignon blanc and then it was time for sleep.
