A foodie weekend.


It has been a food weekend.

A chicken and corn soup with crusty bread for Saturday lunch.

A three course candle lit dinner on Saturday - mushroom soup, Portuguese Chicken with herb rice, pear & cumquat tart (can you believe that one of the finalists in Masterchef didn't know what a cumquat was?), a stir-fry with veg from our garden tonight, a big plastic container of muesli and a Moroccan casserole for sometime during the week. Oh, and a few coffees.

And I kicked off a homebrew kit - Dark Ale. Making buloop-buloop-buloop sounds in the garden shed.

In between times I was working on the veggie garden. The Tamarillo is wishing that I had never visited the site and read up on how to prune the thing. I told it that it was all for the best.

That's it.


  1. We had a cumqaut tree in the back yard as kids, ate them by the hundreds. Esp the skin, we sucked the inside out :-* and ate the skin.

  2. You have been busy, I like the menu for your candle lit dinner, it all sounds delicious, especially the Portuguese Chicken with herb rice and now that I thnk of it, the pear and cumquat tart.
    I hope your Tamarillo isn't shivering in the cold?

  4. It's warm enough to brew in a shed?

  5. all sounds good. how bout some recipes - particulary the moroccan casserole and the protuguese chicken, oh and the cumquat tart. thanks!!
