...but not as long as last time!
Hi! So I worked thursday and friday which wasn't too exciting. I made a delicious dinner last night. I got chicken from across the way in the market. It was marinaded lemon and pepper and Amazing!! Today I'm accompanying Bec to the zoo with her cousins and aunt. It's not looking like a nice day though, sadly. Hopefully it changes as Melbourne weather often does!
Michelle at work pointed out something to me yesterday that I hadn't noticed before. There are no family style restaurants here! And chain restaurants are few and far between. I guess that food isn't as common or people just don't go out to eat it. There's heaps of family run ethnic places - Italian, Greek, Indian, Thai, Chinese, etc but no Gumas'! It's so true, but I hadn't realized their lacking before, so when I want comfort food I need to make it myself!! I am going to be so cultured, my knowledge of food has increased so much! Well, not the actually cooking part but all of these ingredients that we sell that I've never seen before have entered my vocabulary. Chia seeds, dukkah, bourghal flour, star anise, to name a few.
I hope that you enjoy the appearance of the new blog. I went back to my days as a compsci nerd and played around with the code and found how to tweak it. It took so long because I didn't remember/maybe didn't learn html. Anywhooooo I actually did work this week AGAIN!! Yeah, I had an annotated bibliography and a presentation Monday! I don't have any assignment for next week other than working on this group french project. We have monday off because it's Anzac day. It commemorates when Australia and New Zealand first fought together. I think. That's by VERY basic understanding of it. Hopefully I'll have events to share from this weekend.
