I saw this simple and rustic table setting via Sweet Paul Magazine - isn’t this a fabulous idea for Autumn outdoor picnics? I love the simplicity of the linen drapped between trees, hovering over a simple trestle table. And of course the food looks divine too!
Is it Monday already? Gosh, what a weekend! When we were growing up, Sunday lunch was quite a tradition. A roast was usually the meal and we would take turns each week in setting the table or helping out in the kitchen. Its been a while since we’ve had our own Sunday lunch and after this weekend, its something I want to do more of.
I picked up some great produce at the Farmers Markets on Saturday - a bucket of mixed stonefruit from a local grower, some sourdough bread, local eggs and some (dog) treats for Wilbur.
We had some friends over for lunch on Sunday and thought why not use some of those stonefruit to make a crumble. The fruit was so sweet and bursting with flavour and perfect for making a crumble. I really enjoyed pottering around the kitchen and baking – going to make it a 2013 goal to do more baking!
I saw the recipe in Donna Hay’s latest magazine, but its so simple I still remember it this morning: Continue reading
I am loving so many foodie blogs at the moment – the tantilising photography, the clever use of type and the styling – if I could jump into the photo, I would! here are a few I’ve discovered recently:

We’re driving to Sydney tomorrow for the weekend – and cannot wait! I’ve already arranged the weekend completely around where we’re going to eat, where we’ll have drinks with friends, what sales are on etc. Poor Mr B won’t have a look in edgeways until the Waratahs game on Saturday night! I use to live in Sydney and miss food/wine desperately! First stop, dinner tomorrow night at Chiswick, Woollahra – if we can get a seat! Continue reading
Its bitterly cold and overcast outside today, and thinking of making French Onion Soup for dinner. Soup, a nice glass of Belgravia Syrah and some sourdough will be a perfect start to the weekend. Continue reading
The wonders of Pinterest has found me a new, gorgeous lifestyle blog – I feel so relaxed and dreamy looking at the beautifuly styled images. So inspired, I’m making Lemon Curd toinght (my mum’s favourite) and will attempt a hand painted linen tea towel. I’m visiting mum for the weekend and thinking these would be perfect ‘gifts’. I love that everything is quite simple and not overly fussy. I have added this to my Blog love and sure I’ll be popping by regularly. Enjoy!
