Phew, I just made it! These past couple of weeks have been crazy amazing! Our Grand Prix party went off without a hitch, the food was amazing, the drinks were a plenty and friends & family made the days a lot more fun. Last week was the first week of school holidays in Melbourne, our two nephews came to stay for the week while my sister & bro-in-law worked. I praise all working parents as maintaining a house, looking after the kids, preparing meals is a full time job in itself! I love our nephews – they’re nine and five – to bits and I’m happy they went home as they missed mum & dad but gee do I miss them! Time has just flown by. It’s time to give some TLC to Miss Food Fairy.

Remember my visit to the new Kitchen Warehouse store in Preston, Victoria in February, well I bought a new Scanpan sauté pan. I’m usually a non-stick kinda girl but decided to try a full stainless steel pan to see what they’re like. I enjoying cooking in it and it’s great it can go in the oven up to 200° Celsius, but I’m not sure if I’ll swap all my saucepans at this point in time.
A big congratulations to Aishath from Nattulicious, who shared her fried rice with fried fish dish and won the Kitchen Warehouse $50 voucher with the most votes. Thank you to everyone who entered & I’m sorry there could only be one winner as all the rice dishes look absolutely delicious!
Kojiro needed a new water bowl. I found this Jamie Oliver recycled glass bowl on special at Woolworths last month. Kojiro loves it!
This is my favourite apple juice. It’s made in Tasmania. No added anything, except Vitamin C. Perfect start to the day – after my coffee of course 😉 I buy this from the fridge section in Woolworths.
These are all the sauces that were needed for our GP party. They’re always a must in my pantry to suit everyone’s tastebuds. The sweet chilli sauce is the best I’ve ever had from a bottle! It’s as good as the fish cake dipping sauce in Thailand.
The sauces I used for my slow cooked Bulgogi spicy pulled pork. I served this on the Sunday for our GP party and it was a big hit with everyone, they just loved it! There was just the right amount of spice in the pork that when put in small dinner rolls with a Kewpie mayonnaise coleslaw, there was still a kick of spice. The great thing about this Korean Bulgogi sauce was it had no MSG in it. Do you know how hard it is to find sauces without MSG?!
I also made a slow cooked BBQ pulled pork for the GP party on Saturday. The BBQ marinade was made from scratch.
Here are a few of my favourite cars from the GP. (from top to bottom) Photos 1, 2 & 3 are some of my favourite classic cars. The black car reminds me of Penelope Pitstop’s car, except hers was pink. Photo 4 is of some of the Australian GT’s – some of the world’s most exotic car brands including Ferrari, Bentley, BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Porsche, Lamborghini and McLaren. This is the largest field of Level 1 race cars, apart from the F1’s. Photos 5 & 6 are a couple of my favourite Ferraris – the red Ferrari is like the one Magnum PI drove and the silver Ferrari is a 308 GTB. I love old school cars, they sound and look fantastic! What’s you’re favourite car? The photo at the start of this post is of one of the F1’s broken down right out front of our place. It was so exciting! I felt sorry for him though as he couldn’t race any further. Check out my Instagram account for a few more GP photos.
