day 16 - playing catchup ;-)

Whoops! The last few days have really got away from me, so I need to post a few pics to catch up!

During the week, my copies of the Homemade: Handmade Help Recipe Book arrived in the post. What a treasure trove of great recipes. This morning I made the Beetroot Dip (page 21) ready for drinkies with friends this afternoon - it is so delicious and the colour is FABULOUS!! I'd never cooked beetroot before, but I bought some at the farmers markets yesterday and then just roasted it in foil for about an hour. This recipe book is a real gem and would make a lovely gift (maybe get in early for Christmas?). they are just $15 and all profits go to the Salvo's who are helping survivors of the Victorian Bushfires. Go to this website to buy online.

Just incase you were wondering, I am still taking photo's of flowers coming up in my garden. the colours and shapes are wonderful ...

FYI - it is soooooo wild and windy here in Melbourne right now .... I hope the roof stays on!

Have a great Sunday!

Oh yum - that dip looks absolutely delish... now I'm craving turkish bread and dip for dinner.
