Mixed Berry White Wine Spritzer

We are in the midst of ex tropical cyclone debbie as I write this. For those of us here in Brisbane we are mostly get rain, lots of rain. We have had flash flooding and constant rain since around 1:30 wednesday morning.

But for those in Far North Queensland who bore the brunt of the cyclone they have sustained much worse. They have had rooves ripped from house, garden sheds blown into neighbours yards, boats washed ashore I even saw a photo of a bull shark now stranded once the flood waters receeded.

Weekly Wish List

Weekly Wish List 28.03.17

How was your weekend? Ours was a combination of chilled and crazy. Saturday was Marc’s birthday and I had a cake to finish so Saturday morning Marc played For Honour (yes I brought it for him:) ), then we went out to do a little shopping and headed to the movies and out for dinner with friends. We saw Beauty & the Beast, I really enjoyed it. It was better than I was expecting it followed the original story line but had some extra additions. For dinner we went to Lonestar and had all you can eat ribs and wings there was so much food!

Roasted Cauliflower & Smoky Bacon Mac & Cheese

Are you a Mac & Cheese lover? I am, it was my favourite way to eat pasta as a kid. But now I like my Mac & Cheese with extra mix ins.

Bacon is always a go to, but chorizo can work, cherry tomatoes add a pop of freshness and tuna is delicious.

Roasted Cauliflower & Smokey Bacon Mac & Cheese

For this version I added roasted cauliflower & smoked bacon. The cauliflower add a slight nutty flavour & the bacon is cripsy, smoky & well bacon just makes everything better right?

Breakfast Hotdogs

Going to the butcher is one of my favourite parts of grocery shopping. Our local butcher i9s amazing,  they always have a tonne of variety and while their basics stay the same they change things up a little as well. Sometimes they have these amazing smoked pork chops, they make in house smoked kabana and bacon and they always have a huge variety of ever changing sausages. Last week I saw these mini pork and macadamia sausages and I immediately knew I wanted to use them for breakfast hotdogs.
