Good Food

My good friend Simone gave me a subscription to Good Food magazine for my birthday last year. What a great idea for a gift! I had (and will have) the excitement of waiting for the next issue in the mail! Then when I finally open it, I always paw over the pages for quite some time, and finally I get to cook things......then eat them! These are from the Jan Feb issue 2010. The top is the Yogurt Pistachio cake (without the turkish delight cream) made for big M's birthday, the bottom photo is Creamy pesto chicken with roasted tomatoes. Yes, Reb, I'm still veggo, but the two men in my life aren't. Am thinking of doing a kiddy version of the yog. cake for little M's birthday cake too (yes we like it that much!)

Thanks Simone, and keep warm!

The best kind of Friday

Michel's stretching partner.
A little bit of yoga.

And this is the view from our breakfast table this morning! A great way to start Friday. We live in a very small apartment, so our dining table (and yoga studio) is on the balcony. Fortunately the Brisbane climate allows for dining al fresco nearly all year round! I think there are maybe two months in winter that it's too cold (we could probably still eat out then, but are cold weather wusses). Have a great weekend everyone.

Gato Tomas

Aren't these lovely prints by Gato Tomas? They were being sold at a tiny kiosk in Buenos Aires. I didn't get to purchase any, I really wanted the mozzie/bug one for M (BA was full of mozzies).

Well, that's it, all the climaxes are over! Christmas has had it's merry day, New Years too. We are back from our holidays. Michel is back to work today! I thought I'd write this quickly, as am too tempted to look at other peoples blogs than write my own. Here are a couple of photos of the millions taken. Will put some more up later. As you can see, Bariloche was breathtakingly beautiful! I did the appropriate Sound of Music songs and dance...... don't you worry sistas!

No, we didn't stay at the top photo! But the photo below was taken from our cabin! The time with Michel's parents went well too (no tension.....a first!). My only regret was not eating more was there, at my finger tips.....why didn't I eat more?!
but I did have some nice white wine..... and the tomatoes were out of this world!!
