A Little Bit Of...

reading happening here... a dehydrating book arrived on friday from the book depository


only a little bit of stiching on a Tilda project

some cooking for tonights tea which is everyones favourite 'chocoalte self saucing pudding'  

 and  steak on rosti with curry prawn sauce has been the best one I've made...maybe it was the sprinkling of corriander. Can you see my drizzled (slopped) sauce around the plate? Just like they do in the restaurants!lol!

I have however been doing HEAPS of gardening...everything has started to come to life, especially after the rain we have had the last couple of days!

I hope you get a chance to do something you enjoy too!
PS Has anyone been watching Gourmet Farmer? About a Sydney food critic Matthew Evans, that has moved here to Tassie and trying to make a living off the land on his farm here in Cygnet. Pretty much like  River Cottage. But I am loving it! I have only just watched one eposide on TV, but have been watching older episodes online.

I love Gourmet Farmer too. I think he may come to your house to try your cooking soon!

Your meal does look like something from a restaurant! I don't have the patience to make things looks so pretty:)
I don't know why, but it seems so strange that you are getting ready for spring while we are putting our gardens to bed for the winter. I'll get my garden fix through you guys in the southern hemi!

your dinner looks just like a restaurant plated up dish. Your family is lucky to get such swish dinners. We have been watching gourmet farmer here too. Great series.

Hello Lisa,

Happy to see you were able to get a book. You will have lots of fun with this. I love both those shows you talked about. Very inspirational aren't they.

Happy days.
