family

It is the week before christmas, my parents have arrived! The children are having a ball! They have only been here for a day, but it certainly is nice to have family all together, isn't that a big part of christmas?

Sunday roast

Isn't it great when you cook a roast pork, and the crackling comes out really nicely? I have always found it to be hit and miss, although I have been told rubbing salt in works and letting it sit while you preheat the oven, I tried that today, maybe thats why it worked! I put the potatoes in the microwave for 10 minutes then let them sit on a clean tea towel for 10 before rubbing with olive oil and baking they will come out beautifully golden and crunchy! lot's of vegie's and bread and butter pudding with cream for desert{ I like to put jam on the bread as well, delicious!} this really is quite an economical desert. If you save some left over crusts in the freezer from over the week, it only uses a few eggs and a little milk and sugar, and of course butter and jam!

Good Evening!

Hello out there!
           I am new to this so it may take me a while to get used to everything and set it up properly. Especially as I would like to make it look beautiful!
Today My husband Shane and I took the children to Commonwealth Park for a picnic and also to Floriade. We all had a really nice time, despite it having rained on us! Shane took the children on the ferris wheel and the floral displays were beautiful. I made some cupcakes for the picnic, a new creation of mine that I'm calling coconut ice, they were delicious! I may post the recipe in a day or so. We also had egg and lettuce sandwiches and rasberry cordial, with orange wedges and watermelon. Alltogether a lovely day!
