A Kitchen Catch Up

After a hearty Shelton Lea breakfast, we head off into the sunshine. We’re homeward bound but we have one last look at the beautiful mountain views at Evans Lookout over the Megalong Valley.

We make it home in record time, deposit our bags and then hop back into the car, and zoom up the coast to the Northern Beaches. We drop by at Dee Why which is a spectacular spot, and it’s the inaugural visit for Beverley, Joan and David. I can’t believe he’s never been! I have lots of happy memories here, as this is when the Sun Run starts every year!

We grab a bite and then try and kill of the excess calories with a stroll along the beach.

A Day at Dee Why

The sky is looking a bit ominous so after a mini photo shoot, we get back in the car and take a trip to the supermarket. I enjoy the luxury of shopping by car, shopping with friends and shopping at a far bigger branch but am surprisingly restrained nonetheless.

Back at the ranch, everyone enjoys some down time and I go into a kitchen frenzy. I pop tonight’s dessert Flourless Coconut and Almond Cake into the oven. It’s super easy and gluten-free and I can make it in minutes without any mess. I have an uncontrollable urge to make some of Tracey’s Rocky Road and after some melting and mixing, I pop it into the fridge to set now, so we can enjoy later.

After our weekend excesses, dinner is fast, fresh and simple and comes courtesy of Donna Hay. The Baked Fish and Chips  go down a treat. Why go to the chippy when home made tastes this good? The Flourless Coconut and Almond Cake is a hit in this house – Joan declares it the best cake she’s ever eaten! And Tracey’s Rocky Road tastes like a treat too. A successful night in the kitchen! The Feeder Programme is on!
