This one was a special celebration Sunday dinner, so The Grandpa splurged and brought some really really nice steaks from Costco over for bbq-ing.
The Mister did a magnificent job grilling them. They were wonderful. We had the usual steak suspects: baked potatos with sour cream, cheese and chives on the side, grilled asparagus, mushrooms, and salad. A feast.
For dessert I made Nigella Lawson's Victoria Sponge.
The shot below also includes The Boy's thumb as he took the photo. What a guy. :)
The recipe was very easy to make and even with my scraggly cake sides due to a last
minute decision to line the tins with parchment which made them wonky looking,
I thought it was quite impressive.
I tried the food processor method which I didn't love; there was a lot of batter
and I felt it didn't mix well. But it turned out fine in the end - the cake itself
was flavorful and tender. I filled ours with peaches and nectarines and that
was ok; but this would be amazing with summer ripe berries.
