Lovely weekend...

This is a pretty food heavy post...
~
We arrived late into Adelaide.  The kids had this yummy chicken dish ready for the oven ...
~
Saturday morning I made these White choc and raspberry cookies for Bri to take to work and share with her nurse friends...
~
I watched Kirby play netball in the afternoon.  The rain held off but it was very cold for the last quarter.
~
Out for dinner at Antica Pizzeria & Cucina ...
~
This was a metre long pizza, served to the guest at the table beside ours - it's huge!
~
We had arancini balls and squid...
~
~
~
Me, playing the fool!
~
Delish!
~
Beautiful tender gnocchi and a lovely, light sauced pork and tomato pasta...
~
Tiramisu for Kirby...
~
Bri had Affogato...
~
Boring old me had my favourite Creme Brulee.  We had a lovely evening.
~
 
On Sunday, I got baking and made a loaf of Chadd's bread - this recipe is so good.  I've made it with my stand mixer and just by hand (like this) and it gives a nice soft loaf and lovely bread rolls.  Do use the bread improver as per the recipe.

Always turns out perfect...
~
I made
 Clinkers Slice
~
I also made a Date and walnut loaf for Kirby to take in to her work...
~
Phew!  And finally, for dinner I made a chicken and corn mornay which we had in vol au vents...
~
Bri came home with me on Monday so she's here for the week...
~

I walked into our bathroom (I don't use this one much as we have an ensuite) and found my winter cactus in full bloom!  So pretty!
~
So that is me up to date.  It's cold and wet here today so I can't wait to get home from work, cook dinner (parmesan crusted lamb steaks, mashed potato and broccoli/cauliflower cheese bake) and settle in for MasterChef. That'll nearly do me!
Cheers - Joolz xx
