His passion was contagious. “Look! There’s a cow!” I point out to the mini-critics who have started fidgeting in the back seat. No in-car DVD’s for this family – I want them to look out the window and watch clouds, and dream. We play “I spy” and made-up alphabet games. We count horses and cows and trees and cars. We talk (and occasionally whinge) and we sleep. We complain about hunger. We happily find interesting places to eat…
Here are some photos from our recent road trip and a café or two. Have a great weekend and happy trails ☺
Afternoon tea goodies from the Greengrocer on Clifford. A greengrocer/cafe in Goulburn that has a great selection of baked goodies, sandwiches, salads, juices and woodfired pizza (dinner only). The interior's not that flash (think cafeteria dining), but the vibe is relaxed.

The charming Berry Woodfired Sourdough Bakery is definitely worth a stop. It can get pretty crowded but if the weather's fine, you can always get the tarts/pies/tasty treats to take away and have a picnic. We've stopped here about three times now and haven't been disappointed (except for the times when we found it shut - open only on Wednesday to Sunday)
My lunch : duck confit (if there's duck on the menu, I can't go past it). potatoes, and frisee salad with lentils. Really, really good. I had to battle the family to hold on to my potatoes.
Mr. Kitchen Hand's lunch - he was very pleased with it too. Pastie (can't remember what was in it) and a Pumpkin and fetta tart (mini-critic junior couldn't help pinching a bit). No pics of the kids lunch because spaghetti is just not that photogenic and besides, they would't let me take a photo because they wanted to dig in straightaway.
My dessert: Prune and custard tart. It was pretty tasty but I had dessert envy once I realised what the others had scored. My tastebds kept saying - "come on, we want the other thing".
Looks unassuming but on the first mouthful, Mr. Kitchen Hand remarks:"Phwoar, that's weapons grade chocolate that is". Then rich, golden, salty caramel oozes out from below the chocolate layer. Luckily, there are two of this and I get some of the kid's leftovers.
