Delicious Long Weekend...

A classic standard one with onion, capsicum, mushroom, anchovies, bacon, salami and tomato and cheese...

...and a barbecue meat lovers. All very good!

Queen Elizabeth gave us a holiday Monday for her birthday! Thanks, Liz!

We had a busy weekend planned, staying in Penola and hosting friends from Adelaide and Mount Gambier...

I took food supplies for our dinner on Sunday night - bread flour to make a hot loaf...

~

...and ingredients to make Babymac's Caramel Apple Crumble.

~

Our friends from Adelaide arrived late Saturday afternoon so we had some nice wine and nibbles while waiting to go to dinner. They own and run The Lane Vineyard at Hahndorf - cracking wines!

~

Dinner was a special night at Pipers of Penola celebrating 40 vintages by the Bowen family. A delicious 5 course degustation menu....

Sunday lunch at The Vintage Cafe - a scrumptious Chicken, mushroom and champagne pie...

Penola has been yarn bombed!

Sunday morning our friends departed back to Adelaide then in the afternoon our friends arrived from Mount Gambier - more nibbles and wine!

We dined in at our Bed and Breakfast accomodation which had a full kitchen...

The bread turned out really well!

I made creamy pasta salad...

...and a simple tossed salad. We also had jacket potatoes to go with our barbecue steaks!

Tired and weary, we got home at midday on Monday. Gus kindly made dinner - these delicious meatballs, served with a runny but scrummy tomato sauce, more like a soup. Yum!

I've had this book since 1990 (I'd written in the front as I always do)!

What did you get up to on the weekend?

Cheers - Joolz xx

  1. Looks like a delicious weekend! I used to live in Penola, but only went to Pipers once. Definitely a special treat place!
    We are gearing up to our Woolly West Fest here so I am knitting parking meter cosies for our yarn bombing. I will have to make a trip to Penola to have a look.

  3. What a fun weekend! I loved the yarn bombing. I wonder if I could yarn bomb all the mailboxes on our street without getting caught? LOL
