September flew by so fast that I can’t remember too much of it! I must be getting old! Maybe it was writer’s block or possibly having computer issues which made me think about nothing else for a while. I feel better this week and have plenty of recipes to share so I should be back on track this month! The first week of school holidays I took the boys (nephews) to Healesville Sanctuary (you can see some great videos and photos on Instagram) but here’s one of many favourite shots (above) from the day – a red-tailed black cockatoo.
Loving these gorgeous orange flowers I found at a block of units that is going to be redeveloped down the street from my place. I have no idea what they are, do you know? I think before they start demolishing I will go back to get a plant or two.
Thai Massaman curry paste that I found at a local Asian grocer. I thought about making it from scratch but found this tastes exactly like the Massaman curries we had in Thailand on our holiday. This Mae Ploy Massaman curry paste was a great find at a very good price. And there’s no MSG!! For the win! 🙂
This delicate, soft fleshed 700 gram slab of venison. My sister’s co-worker gave her & myself some to try, saying “I can’t wait to see what your sister makes with this!” Challenge accepted! I have never eaten venison before let alone cook with it so research I did. All I knew about venison was it takes on the flavour of whatever you cook it with so make sure you cook venison with something you love. A recipe will be up soon for the most amazing, melt in your mouth, flavourful, delicious venison there ever was 😉
La Española olive oil is a Spanish olive oil but has been in Australia for over 30 years. I buy a 4 litre tin to always have it on hand. After researching a few olive oils that are sold on our supermarket shelves, I found that there are olive oils that aren’t olive oils – these are no good for our bodies. I found this is the perfect olive oil as it’s light in flavour so is great for all uses – frying, salad dressings, baking and condiments.
And last but always never least, my new potato masher. My metal one broke so this was a great replacement. It’s holes are smaller than my other plastic masher which is making my mashed potato ever so smooth 🙂
