I tried a new bread recipe last Friday night. I used Tina's recipe for bread (she has a lovely homey blog) - and the bread rolls were a success. Recipe and video tutorial here...
Also on Friday, I tried a recipe for Thai Chicken cakes - these were really delicious and we just had them with a salad. Recipe here...
Last night we had a Beef & Peanut stirfry (meant to be chicken but we had chicken 2 nights before so...). It's a recipe from the AIS Survival for the Active Family book.... I couldn't find a link but it is very similar to this recipe here ...
|Last Saturay night we held our staff dinner in our new showroom...|
|It was like setting up for a wedding ... but we only had 3 tables!|
|I wanted it to look nice so I ordered bowls of flowers (so each lady could take one home), had candles as the centre piece...|
|It was a bit hard to jazz up the room as it is so clinical and new... Balloons helped a bit...|
|I stuck to a blue, green and white/cream theme as that is the company colours...|
|Certainly looks weddingy!|
|We had caterers come in and cook a lovely 3 course meal ....|
|Dessert was a selection of bite size yummy goodies. We had quite a late night and didn't get home until 2.45am!|
|On Sunday, after cleaning up the showroom, we had a visit from 2 British girls, friends of a friend of ours. We treated them to dinner, bed and breakfast on their way through.|
|We took them for a quick trip through the dunes to our coast to show them the sights. It was raining so we didn't get out of Ruby. Then I did a Chicken curry, homemade naan bread and golden syrup dumplings for dessert. Phew!|
|Dianne and Laura - I made them some Anzac biscuits to take with them...|
Yesterday morning I made some Cherry Shortbreads to give to my mother...
After all that, I was happy to sit in my recliner and watch MKR then Who Do You Think You Are...
