Barth - those mussels look awesome.  Wish you'd let me know and I could've joined you!

Rarely get the chance to flex my muscles in the kitchen. Got the chance to go to the stores today. So tonight I made a kangaroo steak seasoned with lemon myrtle, mountain pepperberries and wattleseed on top of a parsnip puree with rosemary, all topped with a red wine sauce (Barossa shiraz). Served with a garden salad.

Would post a pic, but its ugly AF. Tasted brilliant though, should of boiled the parsnips in a stock though for a bit more flavor.
