Christmas Holidays

I am so full! I love the Christmas holidays - too much food, way too hot, going for a swim and then listening to the Boxing Day Test on my radio while finding homes for all my new presents.

I did some vintage presents for Christmas and will photograph them later today - including some that I bought for myself!

Here are some photos of food - what else - that I have been making and a photo of our new favourite little person - Ella Rose - but being in Australia we have all been calling her Rosella. She is 8 weeks old here and her and I were getting acquainted for the first time.

Boxing Day Breakfast - I made this for my husband. Toast with Christmas ham, smoked salmon, avocado, poached eggs and Bearnaise sauce.

Christmas Day Dinner - a Delia recipe for a onion and cheese tart - very good and so easy to make.

Christmas Day Lunch - a roast veggie tart with a gluten-free crust made from polenta, rice flour and cream cheese. My brother and Father always requests this.

Rosella - 8 weeks

Summer breakfast du jour

Borscht - my favourite soup and a but decadent with some Camembert and delicious bread to dip in.

The carnivores version Borscht with a some belly pork.

Bruschetta with tomatoes and basil that I grew. These are about the only 5 tomatoes not eaten by caterpillars.

101st Post

Just a few pictures to slowly ease myself back into blogging now I have 6 weeks off from teaching!

My husband and I on his 32nd birthday at the delicious Garfish, Manly.

The wood-roasted seafood platter - amazing! The Bellini's at Garfish are the perfect summer drink while you are waiting.

My Marmee and her Beau, who took all the amazing photos at our wedding and who is never seen without the camera strap over his left shoulder.

A dinner I made at home - fondue.

Myself, my Grandmother and Aunt on the afternoon of the High Tea for my Hen's. I am wearing my favourite dress that I got from the 50s Fair in 2009.
