Europe... is just around the corner!

Today we booked the remaing part of the trip: Car Hire in France! I am soooo glad thats all over and done with - who would've thought that booking a holiday was such hard work! Now we just have to pay the remainder on arrival at each destination *sigh* That 90 million sure would come in handy right now!

Lily Allen Concert - A couple of photos

Because my internets is pretty lame, I have just uploaded some photos. I might get Ray to upload some of the videos I took of her concert - which was pretty awesome by the way - up onto youtube. It was FREEZING though, and if Ray and I knew it was only going to start at like 9pm, we would have turned up 10mins before she came on. The opening band weren't that crash hot.

Lily performed all the songs of both her albums, plus Oh my god (Kaiser Chiefs cover) and Womanizer (Britney cover).
I think she should have played at the entertainment centre or somewhere a lilttle less shit. The horden pavilion isn't the 'place to be' - but in saying that, it was still a great concert. I really enjoyed the songs live. 10/10! hehe

In the good ol' days

More bills arrived in the mail this week. Car rego, greenslip and insurance. A whopping $2000 in bills - Sometimes I hate being 'responsible'.

Some days, don't you just wish you could throw it all in and just do a handstand against the wall like you used to.

I forgot to mention that Tina and I are definitely going to do a sewing course this year! When I get back from Europe we should start looking so if anyone knows a good place (OTHER than spotlight as they are always full and you can not pre-book your spot - grr!) please please let me know!

First project:

Ha! Okay... I wish. It will prob be a circle skirt or something really basic - I heard they are quite simple.

I am also now using IE 7 as my Firefox has given me the willies and it had gotten so SLOW to do anything I finally gave it the boot. Just for awhile anyway - I actually hope it gets its act back together soon...

Cream of Cauliflower Soup

Yesterday was officially the 1st day of Winter, which means there is technically only 37 days until I am in Europe where it is SUMMER. Oh. Love. How exciting!

So in attempting to do something productive, I found a recipe for some soups (yes, this is productive!) one of those being Cream of Cauliflower Soup. I know it doesn't sound very appetizing but we had it once at our once fav lil restaurant 'Restaurant Pepper' in Balmain... and it was Delicious!

Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4)

2 tsp olive oil
1 brown onion, halved, finely chopped
650g cauliflower, cut into florets
2 small (about 250g) sebago (brushed) potatoes, peeled, coarsely chopped
625ml (1 1/2 cups) salt-reduced vegetable stock
330ml (1 1/3 cups) water
80ml (1/3 cup) extra light thickened cream
Extra light thickened cream, extra, to serve
Chilli & corn muffins, (see related recipes) to serve

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 5-6 minutes or until soft.
  2. Add the cauliflower, potato, stock and water. Cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, for 15 minutes or until the cauliflower and potato are tender. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
  3. Place half the cauliflower mixture in the jug of a blender and blend until smooth. Transfer to a clean saucepan. Repeat with remaining mixture. Add the cream. Place over low heat and cook for 1-2 minutes or until heated through.
  4. Ladle soup among serving bowls and drizzle with extra cream. Season with pepper and serve with muffins.
