If you lived with me...




This is what you'd be eating for dinner tonight!!! Dinner Number 83. I'm clutching at recipes that feature pumpkin obviously....organic pumpkin fertilized by Robert and Cas as only boys know how - ewwwww!!! First time I've cooked risoni. Didn't have any coriander which probably made a huge difference. Had every other b.... herb/spice that was required...tumeric, cumin, oregano - just can't keep up. Am now realizing what those photographers are paid big bucks for on the WW site and cookery books. It's quite hard to take photos of food isn't it?

More indexing of the 1941 Electoral Roll today - who has heard of the christian name Quarmby ? Where on earth does that come from?

Trying to read Ed O'Loughlin's "Not untrue and Not unkind" at the moment - waiting to get into it. Loved "The White Tiger".

Have booked the hire car for the road trip -two weeks to go tomorrow. Lining up rendezvous with all and sundry.

Agonizing over Uni options for Caspar - film and tv, architecture, building design, mass communications.....

Bel and I saw Rachel Ward's Beautiful Kate on the weekend which was quite confronting but fantastic performances from the gorgeous Ben Mendelsohn, Maeve Dermody, Sophie Lowe and the perennial Rachel Griffiths. Bryan Brown is very Bryan Brown. But I reckon this must be Ben Mendelshohn's toughest role ever and he soars above the challenge - smouldering/smoking. I'm looking forward to seeing Sophie Lowe again in Ana Kokinos' Blessed very soon.

What have you been up to? What did you have for dinner?

Luvvie - looks delicious despite the lack of varnish and boot polish used by the profesh photographers....
Perhaps steering Caspar away from film and tv and into a sensible career like law or accounting might be worth a try? ! % :o)

Minted Lamb and Pea Pie with steamed snow peas. andrea's gig not mine.
I don't know caspar but with a name like that it has to be architecture or film. couldn't possibly be an accountant or a petty bureaucrat.
