scenes from the weekend

September 28, 2014









1 – 2 // getting out into the garden to plant more of the summer crop before the rain begins

3 // i’m trying a new recipe {black tea spring rolls} to take to a friends for lunch tomorrow. i make them today & we have some for lunch, just incase they don’t work out and i need to come up with something else to take for lunch tomorrow! (i don’t, they’re delicious)

4 // the limoncello i bottled a couple of weeks ago is now ready for tasting. it’s delicious too – super lemony and not too sweet. i soaked the lemons for twice what any internet recipe i found said to do and used about half the quantity of sugar that any recipe said to use. like many other times before, i neglected to write the quantities down, so i’ll have to guess at what i did next time i make this!

5 // lunch with friends on the mainland. the spring rolls are a hit and we have chinese steamboat as our main course. i love these little baskets we use to scoop the goodies out of the broth and into our rice bowl

6 // i hope i’m always delighted by the fact that our house is surrounded by trees

7 // i was given this huge oil lantern years ago and i love it, but it’s really difficult to find wick that fits. i found some thick woven cotton a couple of weeks ago and tried it out last night. not sure if it’s going to work, so i’m back on the hunt for some proper wick for it

8 // the grocery stores close early here and the fridge was empty, so it was burgers outside on the deck for dinner. the perfect end to our weekend
