I received some lovely mail this morning. This type of mail always makes me happy.
Thank you to Marina who sent me this parcel of "Betty Boop" material I won recently from her blog. I plan to make something for Bonnie out of this material. The best ever display of "Betty Boop" I have ever seen is at Reliquaire. This is definately a great place to shop.
I am so happy that this rose is flowering. It is called "Camp David" Ian and Lucy purchased this for me last year. I couldn't believe that they bought a dead stick home for me. I had to give it extra love and care and planted it into a pot for sometime to make sure it would survive. It is flowering beautifully now.
Here in Australia there must be a cooking show on each television channel at the moment. Last year while watching Masterchef I was enticed to buy some "White Quinoa" This morning I decided to make some up for breakie. I added some apple and cinnamon. I followed the instructions on the side of the packet. It tasted delicious. I think though that I have found the cure for world hunger. It made such a huge amount,the chooks had a treat to. I will certainly reduce the quantities next time. I have noticed that some of the bread I have bought lately has Quinoa in it as well. Has anyone else tried this grain? I would love to hear about your cooking process with this.
I am happy that Bonnie has shown me a few more functions that are on my camera. Happy to be out in the garden taking close ups of the roses.
I decided to double up and include Tuesday's Treasures in this post.
I love my two latest purchases. The teapot on the left has a metal strainer that can be removed. I only use tea leaves so this is why I bought this one. The teapot on the right is made of enamel and is made in Romania. The lid is attached to the pot which is great.
To see what other Treasure's are being showcased this week check out Melody's blog.
Hope you all have a great week.
