my weekend in images . . .

Greetings all,
Poof, after yesterday's post (thanks for your well wishes & sibling stories) . . . i thought i might enlighten you with all the lovelier things from my weekend . . .
a spot of screen printing . . .
mmmm, macarons in Spinderella . . .
thanks Donna Hay!!  Did you know she's doing a flourless truffle cake mix soon, oh you will, i'll have them in a giveaway a.s.a.p. . . .
Farmer's Market orangey goodness . . .
i got carried away juicing & overflowed the food processor (again) so out with the trusty straw . . .
4 children took turns sucking it up . . .
& wrapping up the weekend with a Sunday night Penang curry chicken . . .
with herbs from my barrel of blooming ingredients.  I was informed by the critics - i added too much dill, i just can't love children who don't embrace dill.  I know there are dill haters who read my blog, bite me, i mean, bite dill.
I picked the herbs after an hour of reading in the garden before making dinner & suddenly lost the ability to tell the difference between coriander & parsley.  I sniffed, i tasted, i compared . . . i picked both & tossed them all in the curry!!  I had herb amnesia.  If i inspire you to do anything, it's to grow your own herbs, chillies & salad fixings . . . a little effort with the watering can, will save you a fortune & fresh herbs are the hero of the dish.  Thank you, thank you very much, love Posie

Hi Miss Posie

gorgeous reality shots - I love them so

You had me at hello with your herbs - I am a lover of them all.
Even the putrid herbal tonics too - I am a "herb lady lover".

have a great day ahead

You've got my taste buds atwitching and my fingers itching to get into my scrappy vege patch today.

It was blooming marvelously until Saturday when Captain V discovered all the plants asunder the soil.
We suspect that Luke may have gone foraging for the blood and bone but it may also have been the pesky chooks from next door too.

Either way I managed to salvage some Basil and chives and will start again with a better barrier this time.

Happy day Lovely!

Oh Jennie, how you manage to cram so much into one weekend always astounds me. And the sight of your KitchenAid has me sighing. *One day*. But in cornflower blue! J x

Hi Posie,

How did the macaroons turn out? I have a Donna Hay macaroon box that stares at me everytime I open the pantry door. I must give it a whirl. That curry is making my mouth water. Yum!

Gosh, can I come to your house for dinner. That penang chicken curry looks delicious.

Kerry said...

There's nothing like going out and picking your own stuff to eat is there. I'm loving my little Bunnings vegie patch thingy. Even in a courtyard there's no reason not to grow :)

I woke up at 2:30 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep so what did I do? I read the last 22 of you posts! So much has been going on with you guys. Well done for coping with it all so well. Not sure if I could do it! xx
