Where to begin...

...at the beginning I expect!
~
We are having new carpet laid in our 'good room'.
~
I have to pack up all my tiny treasures...
~
I collect small rhings when we travel then they find a home in my china cabinet.
~

~
As you can see, I have my work cut out! Then I have to fit it all back in afterwards!
Wiish me luck!

Quick post...

Finally, I gave time to put these pics up of Gus's birthday weekend...
We had a lovely lunch on the Sunday, over at Coonawarra...

Winter solstice on Sunday, June 21st...


We gave Gus a Carlton fire box...

For dinner that night, we all pitched...I made slider rolls...

Kirby made an apple slaw...

Gus cooked roast pork...

The sliders were so good!

Brianna made a beautiful pavlova stack for her Dad's birthday cake...

Well, fingers crossed this post will finally be published, Lord knows I have only tried 4 times!

Beef Vindaloo...

Oh, I am over BlogGo now - I attempted 2 posts over the weekend but both disappeared into the ethers! Here's a quickie...
~

This gravy beef or shin of beef...great for slow cooking an Indian curry...
 
I marinated the beef in spices for nearly 24 hours...
~
~

Cookbooks on my bench...
~


The vindaloo os nearly ready...
~
I made naan breas and a Kashmiri Pulao rice dish with spices, sultanas, cranberries and cashews...and a green chilli, mint yoghurt sauce...
~


It hit the spot nicely!

Thai Beef Salad...


Assemble a salad of fresh lettuce leaves, tomato, snow peas, bean sprouts, red onion, fried shallot...
 

...chopped mint and coriander...
 

A dressing of soy sauce, sweet chilli sauce, lime juice, a little sugar and sesame oil...add a piece of your favourite grilled steak - Friday night dinner!

Cheers - Joolz xx

Not happy!

I sat and reconstructed the blog I did on Blogsy, on BlogGo this morning.  Had it nearly ready to publish, swapped to Safari to get a link for one of the recipes and ... Bazinga! It disappeared! 
~
I am determined to post our goings on from last weekend but it might be this coming weekend before I do! Ugh!
~

A bucket (you get the plastic bucket for free) brimming with lovely Riverland oranges (I'd already used some) for $4 - bargain!
~
Ready for juicing...
~
Frothy fresh OJ...
~
Yesterday, I made Rhonda Jean's scones to take to work for smoko.  This was for Gus's birthday cake - if its your birthday, you bring a cake or something for smoko!
~
~
Not bad, but I think I have issues with my fan forced oven heating evenly. I need to investigate heat settings more...
~
~
Oh, yeah!
~

Today, I have lamb shanks in the slow cooker for dinner ...
Cheers - Joolz xx

Be back soon...




 
Blogsy is not letting me post pictures due to a space issue with Picasa. As soon as I figure it out, I'll be back (or I might try posting using BloGo if I have time).  We had a lovely weekend home with our girls for Gus' birthday.   Its a busy week at work as its End Of Financial Year time...ugh!  Trying to keep warm it was 10C here yesterday - even I felt the cold!

Photos on my phone...

We've had a busy weekend, these are a few pics from last week before I launch into the weekend...

I enjoy curried eggs on toast. Just hard boil two eggs, mask with a fork then add your favourite mayo, curry powder and salt and pepps...

Stir to combine...

...then smash it onto your toast.

I've been gaving a few Cup a Soups at work when I feel hungry...

Can you tell I am very protective of my stationery supplies? I label everything so no one steals them!

Bri made me a little owl (she has a long list of orders) - I have called her Olivia.

I dropped off a banana bread to my niece who little boy Jaga, has been a bit sick. Nothing worse than being homebound with a sick baby in cold weather...

My girlies arrived home Friday. While I was making a curry, they sat colouing in...

I love making this little pickle salad to go with the curry...

I cheated and bought the naan and roti bread from our local Indian restaurant.

I'll be back with more from the weekend - we celebrated Gus' birthday...
Cheers - Joolz xx
