At our place, at this time of the year, birthdays come in quick succession, and last week it was my husband, B’s, turn to celebrate.
Our daughter jumped at the chance to bake another of her special cakes – the more year 12 study she needs to do, the more cakes we’re eating! B and I also took the opportunity to have a night on the town.
It’s an exciting night for me!
ABC2 are showing all the episodes of the first season of Please Like Me back to back tonight, before the new season starts on Tuesday.
But that’s not all…I also managed to get hold of the second last packet of Daiya mozzarella at Mad Cowgirls this morning.
And H has made a cake. Banana and chocolate with cream cheese icing.
I got all inspired by the food we ate in the Blue Mountains, and not just because of the kilogram I (unexpectedly) lost!
What kind of fool visits the Blue Mountains in the middle of winter and doesn’t take gloves or a hat? A fool like me! We whisked our daughter away for a mid-VCE break and found ourselves shivering in icy winds. Luckily there were roaring open fires and lots of delicious food to keep us warm.
It’s been an unusual week, with lots of ups and downs. We’ve had a death, a birthday, a painful cyst and tomorrow, we have a big exam (or our son does) – and all of these occasions called for vegan foods that I don’t usually make. I did quite a bit of Googling and flicking through cookbooks, and here’s what I came up with.
I’ve been a bit quiet online lately, because a hideous dose of gastro stopped me from even wanting to think about food for a while! I’ll spare you the details, but my days curled up in bed started me thinking about staying warm and comfortable without animal products.
When I signed up for a vegan cooking class at my local community centre, I ended up getting more than I bargained for – not just delicious food, but also an encounter with one of my favourite bloggers and a trip down memory lane.
