Mother's and Father's Days around here normally concentrate on sleep-ins and breakfast in bed made by the kids.
This last year both girls have done a lot more cooking and it really showed how much their skills have improved in the meal they produced yesterday. Makes me wish I'd kept a record of what they made each year. I do remember a few tea and toast years, some french toast, and quite a bit of Dad help but can't remember much more.
Anyway this year there was a cup of tea followed by a delicious banana and oat smoothie in bed.
After leisurely getting up and ready there was a brunch of pumpkin, fakin (vegetarian bacon) and caramelised onion mini quiches and salmon, dill and cream cheese finger sandwiches,
|lemon and cardamon bun and chocolate pastry swirl with a latte to go!|
Finally an early afternoon sweet course of lemon and cardamon buns and chocolate pastry swirls with coffee.
And done with no help - (and all went smoothly except the spilling of milk all over the laptop with the recipe on it which was sitting on kitchen bench!! We need to rethink this habit!! Insurance claim in, fingers crossed!)
I suspect you may see their recipes if you follow Mia's Blog.
In the afternoon friends lent us their season passes to the netball and we saw our first professional level netball match - NSW Swifts vs Melbourne Vixens. What a game! Swifts won - just - and it was very exciting with a great atmosphere. Always good to try something new. Ian even one a lucky door prize at the after match members event.
Thank you Gorgeous Girls and Lovely Husband. It was a great day!
