and a spring in our step -ahhh holidays!
We've been visiting Mr. Kitchen Hand's parents who live on the South Coast of NSW and we were spoilt silly. They afforded us the greatest luxury any parent could wish for - sleep-ins and babysitting. We managed to catch a real-live movie (District 9) before it went to DVD.
The weather was a bit miserable, so we did what any sensible person would do - have long lunches and warm cosy meals .
In between bouts of rain, we walked off the lunches and warm, cosy meals.
The mini-critics enjoyed exploring their grandparent's lush garden and vegetable patch. (Yes, the Nana and Pop have very green fingers indeed).
Look at those potato plants! The largest mint I've ever seen. I think the radish is ready, and I'll quit while I'm ahead.
Of course, no trip would be complete without some presents. The mini-critics were thrilled when they got to pick some oranges and lemons to bring home.
Expect to see citrus inspired dishes for a little while :) Any suggestions very welcome.
