Bits Of My Weekend - Volume Six

(N.B. This post could also be titled 'What I ate this weekend....')

Friday night I visited our bricks. We have quite a lot now. Next stop, roof!

Friday night I had this for dinner. It was Chicken Mignon. Inside the chicked were semi-dried tomatoes and boccincini. It was to-die-for.

Saturday morning I cooked some breakfast. I couldn't find the metal egg rings, but I could find some capsicum. Yum!

In my fantasy world I am an amazing photographer, and since we spent quite a lot of money on a fancy-dancy digital SLR, I think perhaps I should learn how to use it. Now, I am possibly the laziest person in Australia, so I was only prepared to venture as far as the front yard in my quest. This is one of my Dad's roses.

All the leaves are brown... (All the leaves are bro-wn)
And the sky is grey... (And the sky is gr-ey)...
About five minutes after I took this photo the wind picked up and blew them all away.

I made up a recipe for pie. I've never made it before, and even though I used icing sugar when I should have used cornflour, it turned out quite well.

Bits Of My Weekend is a concept stolen from Michelle. When you're finished here, you should go to her blog and see what the rest of the world did on the weekend. Leave a link to bits of YOUR weekend while you're there...


  1. Please tell me how you made your crust. I am having a heck of time getting the crust just right for my Red Wagon Pies that I am trying to perfect.

    I used pastry flour and butter, but the crust still wasn't flaky. Yours looks very flaky.

  2. It's easy to get a crust like that, you just need to get yourself some frozen puff pastry and put lots of egg wash on it. ;-)

  3. Oh. My. Word. Why aren't you my neighbor?? Big, big kudos for your culinary creations.

    And I can totally relate to the photography dilemma.

  4. Well, darn. I had tried the frozen puff pastry for my little pies and it was a disaster of great magnitude. It didn't work well in tiny, hand size, pies. But thanks for the info. I'm still trying.
