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.

Hunting and Gathering...

... at the Fairfield Farmer's Market.   (Sorry, the pic is a bit murky but it was a bit of a murky day, despite the blue sky you can see there).


We came home with this full basket of freshly grown and/or made produce.

Here it all is laid out:  fresh grain bread, authentic mediterranean dips, a lemon ricotta tart, Otway Prime beef patties (organic) and pine mushrooms.

We just added some fresh silverbeet from the garden and voila!

After the market we wandered around to DD's flat, which was just around the corner.  She is in a sharehouse with a Bevy of Boys, as I like to say.  They prove pretty handy as they have turned this 1960s kitchen cupboard from TraderVic's childhood into a pretty trendy little bar - he was so impressed!

Also, I spied in DD's room this, yes, you guessed it - Cinderella's glass slipper - it was a gift through work but DD is going to generously donate it to the Royal Children's Hospital for a raffle prize.  I am rather proud of her for thinking of doing that.

 Lastly, I will leave you with a rose from my garden - yes, they are still blooming even in the middle of winter!

Well, off to do lots of Sunday errands, 
Take care everyone and have a great day,

What fun! I enjoyed seeing what you did for the day. Love that poster on DD's wall -- Just get on with it. lolol! We saw the real glass slipper from the Cinderella movie as part of the Shoe Exhibit at the V&A. Very cool to see, especially since I'd just watched the movie on the plane over to London!

Great yummy finds at the farmer's market! I forgot you're in the middle of winter; here, it's blazing hot summer.

This all looks so yummy. We don't have a farmer's market here in town but sometimes I drive to the next town and visit the one there. There is all kind of vegetables and even cheese that you can buy there but I have never seen a cake or a pie. This lemon ricotta tart must have been delicious ...
