This post is a paid partnership with True Aussie Beef & Lamb. Believe me, I don’t partner with any brand unless I truly believe in and support their product(s) and the kind of company it is. One that shares similar values as I. Most importantly, I only work for food companies whose products I would feed my family and friends! All these opinions and the creation of this recipe are credited to me. Check out more of my Aussie #grassfed beef recipes and Aussie pasture-raised lamb recipes!
Let’s Throw a Party!
I’m always up for throwing a party! My parties don’t have to be big, like in the sense of lots of people. Actually, I truly prefer smaller parties where everyone can have genuine warm conversation, where most everyone knows each other or they’re meeting new friends, and where we all can sit down at one table and break bread. Now, that’s my kinda party. And, that’s precisely what this Girls’ Glitz Party is! A time for beautiful souls to come together, and an added bonus is that it is the ‘holiday’ season (but, it certainly doesn’t have to be!)! We girls love an occasion to get all gussied up, put on our sparkly frocks and know that for a few hours our souls will be immeasurably nourished with great food, conversation and libations.
Speaking of Food
Food is the central part of any gathering in my home. Whether it’s a party, friends stopping in, Sunday dinner, a weeknight get together of family, whatever, it all rotates around healthy easy-to-prepare food. My goal is not to be chained to the kitchen while everyone else is having fun. Plus, I want to immerse everyone there IN the kitchen with me as easy dishes are being prepared! So, for this party, here’s what was on our menu:
- Grilled Lamb Chops with a Mandarin Orange Glaze
- Grilled New York Strip with a Kicker Horseradish Sauce
- Heirloom Tomato Caprese Salad
- Cabbage Chard Apple Salad
- Ruby Red Glazed Brussels Sprouts
Now, a girls’ party can’t be a real party without a trendy and sparkly shiny ‘bar’ set up! And, for this gathering we featured our ‘signature’ bubbly cocktail. It was super simple to make. Fill a tall glass, make it the crystal kind, half way with cranberry juice, add a splash of orange juice, some zested ginger and top off the glass with prosecco! Throw in some frozen fresh cranberries as ‘ice cubes’. Or make fun ice cubes with orange juice, some fresh berries, freeze then pop out and use.
Only the Best for My Girls
When you know that your girls are health conscious and really care about what they eat, then you know that only the best will do for them. And, that means True Aussie #grassfed beef and pasture-raised lamb.
That’s because one-hundred percent grassfed beef, like the kind from True Aussie Beef, is naturally leaner. Because of that, it cooks about 30% faster using most methods. Grassfed beef is also healthier for you. And, that’s well-established. Your tastebuds can tell a difference and your body and health will, too. Just how is it better?
- Less total fat.
- More heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
- More conjugated linoleic acid, a type of fat that’s thought to reduce heart disease and cancer risks.
- More antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamin E.
