Phew, it’s a been a while. Thankfully my absence hasn’t been because I’ve been working 80 hours a week. There has been plenty of work and study but there’s also been Sunday afternoon beers and gelato (not at the same time – yuck), Monday night burgers, a couple of concerts and lots of time with family. I have a couple of days off work this week and I already have great plans for my kitchen, but until then, here’s a snapshot of life lately (which is probably of no interest to anyone but myself but this blog is my diary so that’s how it is for now).
Some roasted strawberries to go into muffins with almond meal and polenta.
Speaking of blogs, Cat of Take Courage has posted a couple of really interesting posts about blogging lately. Check them out here and here.
These make for exceptional shortbread, especially if you happen to have a cookie cutter in the shape of a tea pot. (I made a half batch and we were still going strong 4 days later).
Luisa wasn’t kidding. These roasted vegetables are insanely good. I’ve devoured them just as they are, tossed them through pasta or brown rice or eaten them with cheesy polenta.
Deb’s spin on the one pot pasta I posted recently looks intriguing. I can’t wait to try it.
This is pretty much my dream lunch (hold the egg, extra chips on the side).
I made it to this burger place tonight. It definitely lived up to the hype. So good. I’m not sure I’m ready to declare it the best burger in Sydney though – Mary’s make a phenomenal one too.
I'm a recent university graduate living in Sydney, Australia. I own too many t-shirts and not enough cookbooks. I love big bunches of fresh flowers (sweet peas!), baking fruit cakes and drinking tea. Thanks for stopping by. Xo
