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
