Well this is an old recipe given to me, its basic and turns out beautiful and delicious. I varied it only by adding some lovely fresh cooked beetroot from the garden, which adds a lovely almost Turkish Delight flavour to it, and its handy for getting
Callington Mill in Tasmania is a must-see if you are near Hobart and travelling around. Its in Oatlands, right in the midlands of Tasmania, which is a Georgian town, that hails back to the convict and early settlement era of Australian colonialism. The mill was built in 1837 and is the only working (Lincolnshire tower) mill of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
This gorgeous Paddle Steamer is the "P.S Industry". Firstly, all paddle steamer names start with "P.S". This cute steam engine that floats rests most of the time on the Murray River at Renmark. Its a little bit famous for a couple of reasons and was a treat to explore.

Every few months i have (probably) annoyed the husband, asking "Can you put another one over in that corner?" or "You know what would go well over there?". Since its pretty apparent that I love growing food, when I came home from Ireland last year, there, it was, brand spanking new greenhouse...
I don't have any big kitchen appliances, except for a Thermomix, as I like one having one contraption that does nearly everything in the kitchen. Saves time in the long run. I want more time now more than ever to spend not doing mindless standing over the stove in the kitchen. I'd rather spend the evenings with the kids and enjoying time with them.
After looking at countless recipe books I decided to make up a recipe with the 2 main meaty ingredients i had left out. Black Pudding (a staple i
The one and only Main Street is dotted with trinket shops, bazaars and used good shops. and food cafes, bakery and the new Bullant Brewery, which is becoming well known for its delicious food and craft beers. Civic gardens with gazebo, roses and trees sits in the middle, like a village green.
