loving persimmons atm...prefer them when their flesh is firm, we wash, cut into quarters & eat
now with more time on my hands and several months to consider what i want to blog about (cause that is why i blog - for myself first & foremost)...i have emerged refreshed, energised, inspired, happy and ready to BLOG!
i had a lunch recently with a blogger friend, danielle from digella... we sat for 3 hours chatting, laughing, almost crying, understanding, analysing our blogs and i guess as corny as it sounds nurturing each other. i asked her what she likes from my blog and she said the cooking, the props, the story told and this instantly hit a cord with me. that is what i love. i love inviting the friends or family...the menu planning...the sourcing...the preparing...the welcoming of people to our home...the music we play...the children licking their fingers and asking for more...the sometimes copious amounts of delicious wine, cheese and other.
so my main focus for 'greenbeen' will now be on doing my gigs at home...with the odd foodie outing that i think is worth mentioning.
with this post i wanted to throw in some images that have been my life for the months i have been missing... and when i next post i will be blogging about a long lunch that we had with friends that was moroccan inspired...
this delicious breakfast is from 'wee jeanie' at yarraville...since having it i have been loving to bits baked eggs with various combinations...esp beans in sugo w eggs & fetta!
my dad made me 2 of the above wooden paddle boards. i love them & they have inspired me to serve weekend lunches & dinners on them
miss 8yr old has several favourite dinners and one of them is bruschetta...she now makes it herself.
the days are shorter now and the cottage front door gets closed early to keep out the cold...this is a classic shot of our 2 animals living happily together (sometimes)...
we live close to footscray and if i am not there buying from the market we are there eating vietnamese almost weekly...feeding a family of 4 for $30 is pretty awesome esp when it is so fresh & delicious!
