You know what I suck at? Roast chicken. Yesterday I was feeling brave and decided I wanted a little bit of Maggie Beer in my life but by the time I had gone back to the supermarket to find “verjuice” I was literally running out of my own juice. Add two hungry children under four [...]
Given that my children appear prone to infections involving high temperatures, you would think that I’ve become somewhat accustomed and perhaps even a little jaded when it happens. Not so and I can often be found googling meningitis late at night, calling the nurse’s hotline and panicking about the lack of an appetite “but she [...]
Whenever my husband and I decide to dine out with our children I find myself pondering why. Why do we put ourselves through it? The question generally arises somewhere between shutting the car door and before the first glass of wine. Sometimes the wine helps. Sometimes it doesn’t. Sunday night we were invited to a [...]
I’m about the chunkiest I’ve been in some time. I’m not entirely surprised by this since I recently took to eating cream and jam buns again for the first time since Year 8 but it still displeases me greatly. Exercise has fallen somewhere behind children, uni assignments and blogging and I miss the effect it [...]
We are in party recovery mode here after a combined first birthday/mother’s day effort yesterday so I am hoping Monday is good to me. I’ve already scared one courier with the state of my eyes “had a big weekend?” he inquired. Obviously he doesn’t value his life and that is why I am now delivering [...]
It starts with a dress…… Linking up with My Little Drummer Boys for Wordless Wednesday
Marrying an Italian Australian has some wonderful benefits. Sure, there was the time I ate boiled pig fat just to keep a Nonna happy but you only live once and imagine my delight at being given instructions for killing a chicken – “just put your foot on the flappy thing and twist”. Excellent! My husband [...]
Mexican food is having quite the revival at the moment. Personally I love anything involving guacamole and melted cheese but I’m even more enamoured with coriander. It’s a contentious herb. A friend once coined it the “devil’s weed” so this salsa is probably not for him. For anyone else not particularly impressed with the store [...]
This 1857 red brick pub has managed to keep its country charms despite a talented chef using regional produce to produce some beyond bistro fare. We enjoyed a delicious slow roasted pork belly with potato mash, broccolini & smoky chilli relish. The pork crackling was made for cold, Autumn evenings. Eye Fillet was simple [...]
Coinciding with the latest premiere of The Biggest Loser, I can sometimes be caught declaring that “diet’s don’t work, you just need to eat healthy” and “I don’t think I’ve ever been on a diet”. I’m not proud but this might even be expressed through mouthfuls of blue ribbon ice-cream. Yesterday, whilst tidying up the [...]
