Our turn now…

Well, it’s our turn now – today, the 3rd Sunday in June is Father’s Day. The mums already had their turn on the 2nd Sunday in May and we had a simple steamboat lunch at home to celebrate the auspicious occasion. My girl insists on some kind of celebration today but no, we are not ready to go out for lunch or dinner yet so we will have to come out with something ourselves at home.

Now that they have relaxed the lockdown somewhat, I guess we can have it in the evening – as always, we are inviting my sister to join us and she will be able to go home after that. Before this, everyone would have to be home and must stay home by 7.00 p.m.

We loved the Aussie wagyu steaks that we had not too long ago…

…and even though we have finished the three packs that I bought, my missus did manage to grab a few more from another place and we still have some in the freezer. I am not all that keen on having individual steaks again so I am suggesting grilling two slabs onlyΒ  and cutting the meat into small bite-size pieces for us to share and we can have something else at the same time.

I went to that place that sells all the frozen stuff and bought these…

New Zealand lamb

– one rack of lamb (RM57.04), lamb foreshanks, two in a pack (RM20.71) and a pack of lamb shoulder chops (RM24.47), all New Zealand grass-fed and I told the ladies to pick one and cook for our dinner.

We had the lamb rack in September last year and it was very good…

…so I think we shall have it again. We did have the lamb shanks not too long ago, for our Christmas dinner.

I also bought a dozen of these scallops (RM12.99 for half a dozen)…

…and we can serve those as well.

I’m thinking of having a pasta dish too and of course, we shall be having a salad or two. At this point in time, we have not decided yet what we shall have for dessert. We’ll see! I guess there will be enough to go round and we shall not be going to bed hungry.

A VERY HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to all you dads out there! Hopefully, we shall all have a delightful day – after all, it only comes once in a year. Cheers!!!

  1. Happy Father’s Day to you! Wow! Good planning. All the frozen lamb and scallops. It would be a wonderful delicious meal this evening. How much was the wagyu steak your wife bought? Is it exactly the same with the ones you bought at the special discounted price – same brand, same price, same everything?

    Thank you. Yes, same packaging, same prices. I picked one with the biggest slabs, two of them, over RM24. The other packs with smaller slabs are between RM19-20. So very affordable.

  2. From the description of what you bought and what you had in mind to cook, I can bet it will be a very scrumptious dinner.. Hope you have a wonderful time enjoying the meal with your loved ones.

    Happy Father’s Day to you, Arthur….πŸŽ‚πŸŽŠπŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸŽˆ

    Thanks. Happy Father’s Day to your hubby too!

  3. I have never had any idea what Aussie wagyu taste like. I wish I could have a bite.

    Happy Father’s day to you.

    There’s a youtube video where the two guys ate and compared Japanese and Aussie wagyu – their verdict, Japanese wagyu has a more tender texture and a nicer flavour but one can only eat two bites, too fat – all those streaks of white while the Aussie one is nice too, may not be as nice but one can go on eating a lot of it. You can click the link here and watch!

  4. Wow. Sir, where did you get the half shell scallops? Never seen it in sibu before πŸ˜€

    CCK, the outlet beside PANSAR. Dunno if they have it elsewhere or not. I thought they looked real nice and it wasn’t expensive so I grabbed a dozen. Not bad, worth buying!
