Birthday Dinner

27 Jun

Wow! You guys had even busier days than me! Especially since I had an epiphany shortly after I posted yesterday, and emailed T.S., suggesting that I could hold dinner for 24 hours, allowing me to purchase the good Trunkey Creek pork from the Farmer’s Markets this morning. Now, my husband, being a true connoisseur of the noble pig, was all over that idea, so the plan was changed and accordingly, we got ourselves up bright and early this a.m., forsook our traditional Saturday morning observances (sitting around watching the cartoons in our pj’s while eating dry breakfast cereal like pop-corn), and headed over to Bathurst.

I really have to remember to take the camera with me next time, so that I can share with you the unspeakable cuteness of my Sasquatch eating a soft pretzel the size of his head, as well as all the beautiful fresh produce. Of course, a decent chunk of same came home with us, and some of that became this:


It was very, very good. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a penitential date with my exercycle.

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa…

    Yes, I’ve visited the Farmers’ Markets in Bathurst [they were on one Ester weekend while we were there] – they are enormous!

    We are going to try out our newly opened Farmers’ Markets in Penrith next Saturday. They won’t be very big because the space they are using is between the main shopping centre and the Joan Sutherland Entertainment Centre, a pocket handkerchief sized square of grass.

    Ooooh, yum – I want some too! (Maybe next weekend…)
    Glad it turned into a stress-free experience!
