New Title Box - Where?

The first time I had to tick the 'Mrs' box, how can this not be worthy of a post ??



On Saturday we went for a walk out onto the breakwater wall to look at the view towards the Strand and Castle Hill. This is where the boats to Magnetic Island leave from. Then back for a coffee....


Spetta Pie

MC requested my spinach and fetta pie recipe and given the fact that I haven't posted food photos for a while ...here we are. Oh and this was stolen from my sister. I have adapted it to suit the lazy cook.

I use:
8 eggs
300g reduced fat fetta
2 sheets puff pasty
finely chopped spinach (too lazy to use fresh)

Thaw out the spinach and remove excess water
Finely chop the fetta
Whisk the eggs

Combine whisked eggs, fetta and spinach.

When I first started making this I would roll out the pastry...that became way too messy and the flour was a bugger to clean up. So I now hold up the pastry in one hand and sort of 'stretch ' it out so that it covers the dish.

Once this is done pour in the combined ingredients.


I usually put it in the over for around 40 minutes on 180-200 or until I think it looks good.

And dont forget to put my initials in pastry on top if you make this...and they are KM :)


Saunders Beach

Saunders Beach is about 10 minutes north of us by car. A very small beach shack suburb.

I'm a little more sun smart these days. The sun stings and I tend to burn so quickly!

Just your typical Sunday afternoon watering the lawn and boozing.


City in a garden

We spent the weekend in Cairns, also known as City in a garden. Whatever.

We had a great view from the hotel room:

J being weird in the hotel gardens:

We spent Saturday afternoon walking along the esplanade, and deciding on which boat to purchase - this one is the winner:

The rest of the afternoon we walked around the markets (doesn't really seem to matter where you go these days the markets all have the same crap errr products). It was also the Cairns festival so they had a stage set up with live music which was nice, until the heavy metal band hit the stage!

Sunday we we enjoyed a buffet breakfast (YUM!) and then to my delight one of my all time favorite shows was on:

Cairns trends are very different to anywhere else - in the first few hours of being there we saw lots of moe hawks , girls wearing cowboy boots and scarfs (hello people its the tropics!!). Interesting.

Happy Birthday to ME! (for August)

I went to Brisbane and then got sick. Public transport....ICTAI. Too many people and too many cars on the road for this country girl!

I am now addicted to Nintendo DS, specifically games that will improve my brain age , currently I have the brain of a museum curator ??.

Meni hanging out at the beach...
