Usually when we have visitors here at ‘Carlton’ we try and take them down the coast to Robe, or to the world heritage caves at Naracoorte, explore some local wineries, do the tourist thing. But this past weekend the visitors were of a different calibre – with these guys there’s no need for entertainment, other than the obligatory farm tour, picking some jonquils on the way, a fire by the wetlands, a cider with cheese, checking out the shearing shed. With these guys it’s easy and slow, comfortable and familiar.
Home again we put the lamb roast on and played some trivial pursuit in front of the fire while the husbands fell asleep on the couch. Happens every time.
That sounds like a fabulous weekend! There is nothing better than sitting around the fire on a winters day…there was a bit of the same here this weekend with camp oven roast to boot.
Oh man, when can I visit? Looks like the awesome-est relaxing weekend ever!
perfect sort of visitors, including the snoozing in symphony 🙂 And how lucky are you to get those gorgeous flowering gums growing there!! I want to come visit and be entertained JUST like that myself! 🙂
That kind of weekend sounds good to me and the fire and cheese….ummmm. We (my 9 year old son) and I made your sticky date muffins and sauce yesterday AND we took it on a BBQ. I just took the saucepan with the sauce in it and put it on the BBQ to heat it up and we poured it over the cold muffins. It was delicious however as we sat down to eat it, it started raining so you have never seen 7 people scoff this down in under 2 mins so we could pack up. I also took some paper plates that were in the cupboard and they happened to be christmas ones from the $2 shop so we called our dessert “Christmas in July”. Will post pictures in the next day or so. It was light and fluffy so everyone gave it the “thumbs up”. James would like the sauce cold not hot but apart from that a real “go to” dessert. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane , Australia
Sounds great Kathy! Glad you liked it.
