About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

The Trust...

Last night I went out with TraderVic and my dear friend, Marie and her DH for an early birthday dinner for me.

Marie had managed to secure a fabulous deal using one of those internet coupons at The Trust restaurant in Melbourne's CBD.

The restaurant is in what had been the old Port Authority building and has all the grandeur of "Marvellous Melbourne" of the 1880s when the colony of Victoria and its capital city, Melbourne was one of the wealthiest places in the world.




The deal was pretty fabulous, too.  For $85 per couple, each person had a choice of an entree, a main, a side (and each side was big enough to share with the other three people at the table), a dessert, a glass of wine and tea or coffee!

I had 12 hour braised ox cheeks (which literally melted in your mouth, they were so tender), atlantic salmon and a to-die-for chocolate cake with salty caramel mousse and honeycomb - yummy!

Marie also gave me the most gorgeous pair of silver and amber earrings which she had bought me in Krakow, Poland on her recent trip to Europe.

I feel very lucky to have such nice friends.

Have a great day, everyone,

hugs,
