Hello everyone. So yes I did drop off the radar for a little while. Call it getting over whelmed with the events of 2012 so far...each year does become more and more busy. However even though I've been lacking in the blog post department it doesn't mean that I haven't been enjoying amazing food!!
So here is an update of parts of my busy year so far and the food that went with t!
As you may or may not know my oven died earlier this year. However it was replaced by a gorgeous new one that has made me realise how dodgy my old one was. This one cooks so quickly and evenly I don't know how I ever lived without it.
I had lunch a while ago at the Fig Tree Deli at White's Hill where I enjoyed a delicious toasted brie, turkey and cranberry sandwich. It was so amazing that I made one at home. So indulgent and satisfying...It's a highly recommended filling combination. We will just look past the fact that it isn't entirely healthy and that I may or may not have used the whole cheese wheel in this sandwich.
I particularly enjoyed this photo of the sandwich in the toaster. It reminded me of Scanwiches.
This year was the year that Josh and I got to celebrate being in each others company for the past 5 years! Yay! So we spent a weekend down the Gold Coast eating way to much. I particularly enjoyed the nibbles plate that we assembled using Australian produce from the Ferry Road Markets, I wish I could live at that place!!
The Sevilo Gourmet Delicatessan stocks a wide range of local, national and international produce.
I'll just give you a moment to drool over the gorgeous savoury treats.
Josh also made me the best Vegemite on toast that I enjoyed with a view of the beach despite the fact that it poured rain the whole weekend!
You may remember the Strawberry Upside down cake of Joy the Bakers that I baked last year. Well I tried a variation.
I recommend substituting the strawberries with some peaches for a gorgeous summer variation.
My favourite breakfast at the moment. Fresh strawberries with yogurt and muesli. Although you can barely see the muesli past all of that ruby red goodness.
Mum and Dad have also moved down to Brisbane this year so I am enjoying having them around to share my food with. This is a healthy banana bread that Mum and I enjoyed the other day for morning tea. The addition of pepitas and sun flour seeds made it seem so much more fancy!
What tasty treats have you been enjoying lately??
