food food food

i went into the city on friday and had lunch with graham.  the meditation group we go to has a vegetarian cafe and we've been meaning to visit.  we were not disappointed as the cafe is lovely and the food delicious.  graham had the curry with dahl and i had the frittata with salads.  we splurged on mango lassies.  we haven't had one since bali in august.  hmmmm.  i also splurged on avocados the other day when the girls came over for lunch.  i made chicken salad and they said it's the best salad they've ever had.  high praise indeed.  it was delish and the girls made a fruit salad for dessert.  my son and dil came over and joined us.  ann, who is into music, and michael, who is a musician, get on like best friends. they jammed and had a wonderful time.  we are trying to plan a trip to cairns to visit liz.  we are waiting for the wet season to subside.  check out the website for the cafe here.  it's well worth a visit if you are in adelaide.  all this talk of food has left me hungry.  i'm having sardines on toast for lunch the way my mother used to make them.  drain, mash, add a bit of finely diced onion and some lemon juice or vinegar and mix.  i haven't had sardines for years so i hope it's nice.  i bought them yesterday and instead of being in oil they are in spring water.

  1. The sardine mixture sounds good, will have to make and try.
    Nice to get praise from people when you make something.

    1. hi M, yes it was one of my better salads. :) the sardines tasted nice but i made a huge mess when i spilled them all over the floor. not the sardines the oily water. they smell terrible. i washed the floor, washed the mat, washed the tea towels and the bench. i reckon i can still smell something fishy. :) sardines smell and taste much stronger than tuna. oh dear.
