Catching up!

Well, it's been a fun few weeks. Lots of eating, laughing and just enjoying life. So I've been a little slack and havn't posted for over a week. So I'm going to start with Mother's Day. That was a couple of weeks ago. I was spoiled along with Doris, (Stephen's Mum) by breakfast at the Camberwell Market. And you know I love my markets! So for me it was a perfect way to celebrate Mothers Day. Thanks Sara, Stephen and Jess.

Speaking of markets (again!), we're lucky enough to have a new farmers market start up at the local school around the corner from our house. Once a month on a Sunday morning, a bunch of passionate farmers and foodies spread out their goodies for us to buy. It's not cheap, but then you know you're getting really good stuff. Seeing that it was so close to home, we walked down to the school at around 9am. It was a beautiful Autumn morning. Misty and cold. Winter is defintely on the way. I love Autumn and Winter!

Walking down our street.

Our haul included:
Natural yoghurt (Turkish style)
Goats cheese marinated in olive oil (made by the same dude that made the yoghurt)
2kgs of organic Nicola potatoes (these make wonderful mash. A little yellow and slightly sweet)
Eggplant (for another batch of melanzane)
2 doz free range eggs
Quince paste

And this little treasure was spotted on the walk home. Beautiful gum blossoms. They just begged to have their picture taken!
