Back To Reality....

We went away to the sunny coast over the weekend (for a long weekend) for our wedding anniversary. We took my parents caravan and parked it at Dicky Beach caravan park.  The weather was gorgeous and we really enjoyed ourselves... lots of relaxing and reading on the beach, arvo sleeps and walks on the beach, sorbet in the sun, fish and chips on the esplanade and many laughs... oh and a few "Uh oh" moments - but we won't talk about that! It's so hard even after a few days to get back into the swing of things. It sucks really!

Anyway my dear husband bought me the best gift for our anniversary ...... Donna Hay Seasons cookbook! ( Mind you i was the pathetic one and didn't give him anything!)

Donna hay is one of my favourite magazines/chefs. Her photograph's and recipes intrigue and inspire me to cook not just good food but GREAT food! :-) Her approach to food is just simple yet delightful but full of so much flavour and don't get me started on the photography of her recipes... fresh, simply and elegant! I was ecstatic to receive this book and devoured the pages on our weekend away, drooling and delighting over every recipe and picture. Bevan even joined in the fun as we both found recipes we would love to try out. A few that are on my list to try are.....

Dill & Basil  Scallops
Minted Lamb Leg

Mustard Roast Beef

Prawn Chilli Pasta

Maple Roasted Pears
Double Hot Chocolate

Rasberry Chocolate Pull-Apart

Blueberry Tart
Doesn't those photos make your mouth water... mine does! Maybe i am just strange!
