presents!

August 11, 2009

One of the pitfalls of having your birthday fall on a holiday (albeit a self imposed, oh-so-glorious holiday) is that there is no time for birthday parties apps um filme zuen. Luckily for me, I was greeted with a couple of almost-birthday freebies that stuck a smile on my dial upon my return to the wonderfully brisk cold that is Sydney in winter download bs app.

how to be a better foodie

This stocky little number was supposed to be the prize for “best signature dish” at Chef Lex’s blog launch Download video from youtube mac. Luckily for me, he couldn’t be bothered organising a voting system, and so this chunky tome found its way back to my home in amongst the leftover cake office student kostenlos download.

I’ll be honest. There are oh-so-many parts of this book that make me want to smack the author over her lovely (well fed) head – the chapter on “culinary fashionability” is one that really gets my goat, but the snippets of information that are contained within are almost worth the funny looks you get at the bus stop when caught grimacing violently at a little pink book nederlandse ebooks downloaden.

food safari season three

A ring at the doorbell is always gladly received when the package receivable contains the Food Safari 3 DVD play for free solitaire. I won this in a competition run by Gourmet Traveller back in May, and, after a little bit of to-and-fro-ing in emails, have finally gotten my treasure eklige videos zumen!

Somewhat sadly, Food Safari’s Wednesday night timeslot clashes with my touch footy games, so I’m looking forward to catching up on many a missed episode with dad (who is also a massive Food Safari fan) elster tax return 2018.

I also won a voucher to go on a Gourmet Safari (wheee!) so will hopefully be able to bring that to you soon too 🙂

carmens muesli bites

Last, but certainly not least, this little package, which was kindly brought over by our mail-collecting neighbour (God Bless those neighbours who do not open interesting looking packages and snaffle the goods inside) download netflix op android. It’s a muesli bar, but smaller and just as tasty as the big versions.

The Bean (who is always in search of a snack to take to her 9am-8pm days at uni) may have gobbled a fair few down before I was able to snap this picture… and, to be fair, so may I smule aufnahmen herunterladen. Well, I was baking that impossibly big cake, and I skipped breakfast (for shame!) and it wasn’t lunchtime yet, and… yeah. It was tasty though, and just the right size for my not-quite-as-big-as-my-eyes stomach that can never quite get a whole muesli bar down and still eat my next meal.

And seeing as I never did get to celebrate my birthday (well, I did, but not really) I’m wondering what the etiquette is on holding a party a couple of months late. Ok? Or should I just sit tight and wait for next year?

    Have the party. The presents don’t double in value or sentiment just because you happen to skip one. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy too 🙂

    @Anh: Me too! It’s amazing how much you can learn from watching home cooks do their thing 🙂

    @Simon: Thank you 🙂 My general frustration with the book is waning the more of it I read. It’s got some really great ideas (and I’m now craving some horribly expensive equipment!)

    @Karen: Thanks! My thoughts exactly. Better celebrating in the semi-warmth of Spring than the desolate cold of Winter anyway.

    @Ja: Oh, thank you! I’m learning more and more (like oh-my-goodness artichokes as an edible table decoration… genius!)

    @Simon: Fancy isn’t my thing anyway. Far too stressful 🙂

    @Fiona: Thanks Fiona! The apricot ones (which just happened to be in my bag) have 346kJ in them (about 82 calories). So probably not best for the diet (ohdear!)

    @Jen: I did, thank you 🙂 And ohh yes… birthday love is the best kind of love!
