Ooo, I was just given one of those little Ferraro Rocher choccies, the ones with Nutella in the middle.....mmmm
I don't have a big sweet tooth, but sometimes I get the taste for it, go hard and then can't stand the thought of sweets for ages.
I'm really more of a savoury girl.
I like nuts.
Hazelnuts, walnuts, pinenuts, peanuts, cashews....you name the nut, I probably like it.
Just thought you might like to know!
Macadamias, brazil nuts.....yeah!
I'm thinking of hazlenuts probably because I'm planning to make my hazelnut/orzo/feta salad on Friday, when our Brisbane friends rock round for a bout of frivolity.
I am putting together a grocery shopping list; one of my favourite things to do!
I like to write my ideal list, get excited, and then realise I need to write my necessary list.
I'm a shocker when it comes to food shopping, I love to hoard, and to have oodles of delicious things just idling in the cupboard and fridge waiting for their moment in the spotlight and my belly...
I'm quite happy doing groceries, and especially love going to my favourite specialty shops, like the Meditteranean Warehouse, or an Asian supermarket, as well as the local butchers and green grocers.
Our local fishmonger came down in the February quake, so we are currently going to one not too far from our work.
I always buy above and beyond what is on my list; food is my only real extravagence......
A girl has to have some luxury in her life!
O, look at G's handiwork!
It's coming along!
The builder comes in early February, when we are away at Sarah's (29 sleeps!), to tidy it up and put in a supporting beam and whatever else is necassary!
Not sure when we'll get the carpet down, hopefully March.
It's looking so good!
I'm going to be stripping the slirting back to bare wood and painting all window frames the same indigo as the french doors.
