I can't believe it's February already. Where has the time gone?
How's everyone going with their new year's resolutions/goals? I don't even remember mine, but one thing I am doing is making a dent on getting lots of practice with the salsa dancing - I've been going out dancing at least 3-4 times a week, hence the severe lack of sleep (and blog posts!)
This is a bit of a mish/mash post of tidbits of the past few months that haven't been enough for a post of it's own:
Mid-week pick me up with the fried ice-cream at Holy Basil - best cure for mid-week itis. I've heard that Holy Basil has opened up at Shark Hotel - is it as packed as the Canley Heights branch?
A couple of visits to Jamie's Italian, with the first being their opening night with 50% (!!) the whole menu:
Squid ink risotto - the chilli in this dish packed quite a punch
Crab meat bruschetta - so fresh and lovely flavours, really enjoyed this dish
And of course, who can go past the the yummy desserts?:
Delicious summer cocktails - speaking of summer.... when are we going to get some good beach weather?
I've also been to Hurricanes a few times in the last couple of months:
Scallops @ Hurricanes
Ribs @ Hurricanes
Mars bars cheesecake @ Hurricanes
Gorgeous flowers brighten my days
French white nectarine cake
New dresses for Christmas:
Picnic by the beach:
Blueberry cupcakes with cream cheese icing + chocolate brownies
Garlic and rosemary foccacia - from the Alio recipe we received from their cooking class
Robert Robert heels
My new favourite thing: Glasshouse candles, heavenly!
Accumulating new and pretty dance shoes! It's slowly becoming an unhealthy addiction...
Still addicted to Dream Cuisine macarons - fave is the honey and lavender!
I also did a resin jewellery workshop over the weekend, which was SUPER fun - highly recommended.
