I met the love of my life on date night

On G:
Shirt-made by my loving hands
Belt-(barely seen) opshopped
On Moi:
Frock-early 60's, opshopped
Shoes-Trade Me
Handbag-60's, opshopped
Headpiece-from the sweetness Vanessa
Vintage panties-ready for action

Tonight G and I are going on a date!
We are off to The Brewery to try their apparently amazing pizza and see/hear a Mexican guitarist play.
Yep, even after nearly 20 years together we like to go out on dates.
All together now:

One of you gorgeous things asked for the Feta and Olive Muffin recipe I made the other day.
I think it was Margaret!
(If you haven't seen her new website, do have a look, it's awfully flash and fabulous!)


Wet mix:
1 cup black olives, pitted and sliced
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese (I probably use more like 1/2 cup)
1 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup oil
3 eggs
1 teaspoon chilli sauce
1 1/2 cups milk

Dry mix:
3 cups self raising flour
1 teaspoon dried thyme or 1 tablespoon fresh chopped thyme

1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese, 2-3 tablespoons grated parmesan & some chopped olives
(personally I just chuck lots of parmesan on top!)

Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celcius
Grease muffin pan
Thoroughly combine the wet mix ingredients in a bowl, stir in the dry mix ingredients until combined.
Pop mixture into muffin pan, bake 25-30 minutes.
Makes about 12 big muffins.

You can add some chopped sun dried tomatoes or chopped rosemary, if you likey.

*from an old muffin book called More Muffin Magic. (!)


PS:Allergic chicks unite!

I love that first pic - G looks so pleased with himself. Rich and I have date nights too:D We haven't quite made the 20 year mark - but its 10 years next year which isn't too bad. Also I am in awe you made G's shirt - I hope I can make Rich shirts when my sewing gets better - but I think I might start off with boxer shorts :P
