Chicken Coop Construction

My Chopper is a bit of a legend! He has sorted a plan, acquired the materials and is working hard on our new chicken coop. There is nothing like home grown eggs for cooking!
Endless uses for them
Hollandaise Sauce
Creme Brûlée
Pastry Creme
I am so excited!
We are going to name our Chicken Coop, FEATHERS NIGHTCLUB!
Ha Ha!

Holiday Food & The Farm!

With a vegetarian daughter and two vegetarian nieces lets just say my repatouir of vegetarian options has increased ten fold. Boxing Day was a day of food, relaxation with cuddles on the grass and John Williamson playing in the background.
The Menu
Roasted Vegetable Israel Cous Cous
salad with a cherry vinegrete and Joseph first pressed olive oil.
Pumpkin tart with caramelized onions, fetta and pinenuts.
Spinach and fetta filo pie with pinenuts.
Roasted sweet potato, capsicum frittatas with fresh goats cheese.
All went down extremely well with full bellies and a niece who had to undo her belt!

Our Anniversary!

So Chopper and I have been together for 8 years today! And what do you know we both forgot! Gosh we are lost causes! So how did we end up celebrating! Three tubs of icecream and a night of TV watching, Turtle Man, Gator Boys and Swamp People!
Go Figure! LOL

Room Service!

Usually room service sucks! But I must say that I always enjoy this Margherita Pizza when I stay at a certain hotel!

“I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)I am never without it (anywhere
I go you go,my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing,my darling)
I fear no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet)I want no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)”
― E.E. Cummings

How is it with a GPS I can still get lost in regional Queensland! Easy when your GPS takes you down a dirt track to the middle if nowhere and cane paddocks! Someone really needs to asses when roads have a blank part in middle and actually don't go through to other side. A short trip that ended up taking an hour.

Finally! Time to go home!

After all that and an extra night in Brisbane! Upgraded to Business! Thank you Virgin! I feel special and Chopper does to, first time in Business for him!
