Minnie Mouse at MoMa

Wanted to share some pics of the rather cool minnie mouse/serpent tent at the mona market by artist Daphne Park, I love its pinkness!

 Also rather exciting day today, managed to score tickets to radiohead in november, I am sooooo excited, now just have to wait 8 months....!

This Weekend...

This weekend has been hot, hot, really too hot for me, but despite the heat it has been a great weekend. A good mail day on friday (the new 3191Q), mona market on saturday, Qbert and Reeps One (awesome scratch DJ and beat boxer) on saturday night, Island Menu work today and dinner at the beach to check out the slightly off-putting bushfire sunset. I'm not ready to go back to work tomorrow!

I went to Salamanca market for the first time in absolutely ages yesterday, mostly I was after some tulips but they didn't have any so I got snap dragons instead. I would have loved the poppies but they just make me a bit hayfeverish.

The exciting find was zucchini flowers! I had some in Melbourne many years ago and they were fantastic and I have wanted to re-create that ever since. I did get some flowers from a friend last weekend but was lazy and left them out and they went all limp. So tonight I cooked them properly, stuffed with goats cheese, ricotta, basil and fresh grated nutmeg and a light tempura batter, and I was pleased with the way they turned out, nearly the same as my memory.

I did not mean to take a break, in fact this year I had plans to be a much better blogger! I haven't taken many photographs at all lately and that always holds me back from writing posts, plus I think I hit a bit of a wall earlier this week..... I might need a holiday! But I have one in a few weeks that I am so looking forward too, involves seeing Bon Iver live...woo!

Photographs are from a few weeks ago around my house.

Right now I am on a rather boringly tight budget, which has curbed my spending well and truly (not a bad thing at all to be completely honest), but there are a few things in today’s pins that I do rather like from Anthropologie….not that I will be spending a penny!

flowers, measuring cups, plate, bedroom.

hmmm somehow it is the 6th of February already! This year is going rather fast so far….
*my copy of the second Kinfolk magazine arrived and it is seriously so wonderful, amazing photographs!
*it was a weekend of home grown goods – I was lucky enough to be given all these things – fresh basil, newly ripened tomatoes, pom pom dahlia’s, nashi pears and zucchini. Summer is good like that.
*I made truck drivers pasta with the basil and tomatoes for Island Menu…it should be up in a day or so.
