I've just had a wonderful week, full of friends and fun. Three
different lots of visitors graced my spare room in that time - I should
have put a revolving door on it and charged admittance!
Firstly, last Saturday 4th, took Ez & Sum to dinner at Hogs Breath
Cafe. At the time of booking I didn't realise that the Hyperdome Food
and Wine festival was on at the same time - consequently it was
extremely noisy. Food, however, was wonderful as usual.
Monday my friends from Coffs, Sue and Ross, arrived on their way back
from Roma, where Sue's son now lives. We had chicken rissoles and
veggies for dinner; unremarkable, you say? Considering I ordinarily
live on Cup-A-Soup it was certainly worthy of comment.
Ross and Sue got away around lunchtime Tuesday. On Tuesday night I had
dinner with subby69
who was feeling quite lonely - his partner was attending a conference
in Sydney (I think) and he'd been left to his own devices. We had steak
and pasta. (Mmmm, more red meat)
Wednesday saw the arrival of my friends from Casino. We had butter
chicken for dinner that night. On Thursday we went shopping, and
stopped for sushi at lunchtime. I really love that stuff! I was totally
reluctant to try it at first but now I enjoy it immensely. Thursday
night was a Malay Satay stir fry. Yum.
On Friday we had a selection of deli meats for lunch, on top of fresh
sourdough rolls. Friday night was pizza! Which pleased the Pizza Box
Cat as he then had something to sit on.
Saturday saw the departure of L&M, and the arrival of Sue, Ann and
Sharon from Coffs. They came up for the ACF national cat show. We had
Red Rooster for dinner on Saturday, and Hungry Jack's for dinner last
Hmm, it was almost a relief to get back to my cup-a-soup and crackers
I still have a cupboard full of junk food, though, that I bought for
the visits. Two bags of chips, donuts, Tim Tams, two chocolate bars,
chocolate ice-cream (which I normally never eat), and salmon dip.
Back to work tomorrow. Back to vegemite sandwiches and yoghurt for
lunch - time to work on losing the couple of pounds I put on through
the last week's indulgences.
