Today I am...

...picking up 20kg of lovingly handmade sausages from here
...buying 20 kilos of assorted pizza cheeses like mozzarella, feta and bocconcini
...collecting kilos of rocket, pumpkin, garlic and mushrooms
...tasting a potential menu for here 
...drafting two blogposts in my head for this lady 
...baking 20 gluten free star biscuits using this recipe
...setting up the outdoor pizza kitchen, painting blackboards and writing menus for this event 
...cleaning the house and cottage in preparation of tonight's arrival of these two gorgeous folk
...crossing my fingers I can get all this done today!

What about you?  What are you up to today?

  1. Sounds like you have a busy, but yummy day ahead!
    Today I'm enjoying my two babies while my 4 year old has a day at school. I'm leaving the house work and chores for another day. My bliss.

  2. What a list Michelle, I'm feeling tired just looking at it.
    Today I'm having lunch with Rob's parents and sister, oh and Rob.
    Hmm planning the weekend's menu... slow roasted lamb shoulder may be included.
    Is it looking crazy busy for you in the next little while? Still need to organise a visit to the hut, we haven't seen you in so long!

    1. Hmm, slow roasted shoulder of lamb sounds pretty good! Would love to come and visit! After the sustainable living expo is good until MoMa starts 15 December.

  3. Wow, what a list! And I thought that my day was busy.

    I've just got back from time in the classroom with my son, very soon I will be going back to school to collect my daughter. We will be meeting Grandma for lunch and a girly shoe shopping trip (a belated birthday present) While in town we need to get embroidery thread, return library books and perhaps squeeze a look in an op shop or two. After school, we are meeting my son's friends in the park and then at 5pm going to my daughters friends house for a playdate (read - wine night). I've made pastitsio last night to take along.

    Just like you, it is one of those busy but 'oh so fun' kind of busy days.

    I'm wondering, if you might just need a couple of more hours in your day:) Good luck with the list.

  5. What a day you had. Sounds lovely. Like the idea of the outdoor pizza kitchen.
    My day was spent at work. But there's melting moments in the oven now so it hasn't been all bad.

  7. What a busy, but fun, sounding list you have!

    Today I am enjoying some quiet on my own while the boys play floorball. I am counting down the days until my hubby returns home after 4 looooooong weeks away working. I am trying to decide on whether I should sew up some cushions ( a la Meet Me at Mikes style) or continue with my crochet that has been severly neglected. I am contemplating making soup as the weather has turned cold ( again), while also thinking that I should bake some cookies. I probably wont get much of anything done but that is Ok too- that's what some weekends are for right?!

  10. Once you've picked up all that cheese and meat, how do you store it? I'm redstovering your blog and I love it!

    1. Hi Clare - thank you for reading! The cheese and sausages were for our school fair - and the school kitchen has a commercial fridge where I stored it. I transported it in big borrowed eskies with ice blocks to keep it cool in transit. It sure wouldn't fit in our fridge!
