Later in the evening our friend and a fantastic fashion blogger Rena paid us a visit. We hadn't seen each other in more than a year!! I decided to make some juicy steaks and so I did. I had a bit of a dilemma with the side dish though. I once tasted Dauphinoise Potatoes at Wild Goose Grill in Ranelagh (Dublin) and I nearly died. It was so damn good. I thought about it for a second and then decided to try to make it with our steak. I sliced the potatoes with potato peeler (really thin) and layered them with garlic & butter, parmesan cheese, cream and salt & pepper. It was a perfect side dish to the steak, even though the preparation took ages so we had to eat really late. I made some baked mushrooms with garlic, steamed asparagus and pink pepper sause.
This is me preparing the mushrooms!
Rib eye steak!
We had a few drinks too. Well, maybe too many drinks in fact. There was some dancing, singing, photo taking and also hair styling. After a while we went to town and partied for the rest of the night. I had an awful hangover the next day and I did not envy Rena that she had to go to work in the morning.
After spending most of the day in bed and eating Thai takeaway, I had to get up and went out with the lovely girls from work. We went to this cool Rainforest Adventrue Golf centre in Dundrum (Dublin) and played mini golf surrounded by sounds of thunderstorm, monkeys and other creatures. It was really funny! We had some ice cream later on and went for some pints. Again!! I can only say that I had a brilliant weekend, but I am still recovering!
I just love this sign!!!
