Back to feeding myself tomorrow. I have had a weekend of food joy. Dylan came up for the weekend and came with my family to the Coromandel where all we did was sleep and eat. It was glorious. It was so bizarrely warm - two days before the first day of June and I am wearing a singlet and getting tan lines whilst on walks?!
Did I say we did a lot of eating? We ate a lot of pimped porridge, cheese scones dipped in soup, date loaf and my new favourite dinner - tuna curry with mango salsa. My oh my. I may have to make it this week except with chicken and not tuna at $40/kg..
Also I decided to make my mini date loaves back into a large loaf but still cover it in all the bells and whistles. It was much applauded and I still can't get over the candied walnuts...sah good!
I'm tucked up in bed writing this waiting for Dylan to text me saying he's landed back in Christchurch. It's our ritual. As is reading the hilarious Mainfreight quotes lit up on the wall of their warehouse that we have to drive past on our way to the airport "Readers are achievers"
"Happy is the man with a hobby"
"Read to your child everyday"
Truly inspirational. My life is definitely the richer thanks to these quotes.
I miss him already.
