A Day at Home

Today I enjoyed a relaxing day at home by myself.  Miss B and Mr J were lucky enough to be taken by their aunt to Rainbow's End, a theme park in Auckland. They had a fabulous time, though Mr J has since learned that generally twice on any ride is ample. I spent the morning doing lots of cooking for dinner that night and for our picnic lunch the next day at Mt Maunganui. (photos next post)
  • preparation for Carrot Hummus and the end result.  I have had this recipe pinned for a year or so now, and finally made it.  It turned out really well, the only thing I would change would be to reduce the paprika to 1/8 teaspoon.
  • happy mail to me - I do enjoy getting mail like this, and eating it too..
  • flowers from a huge succulent plant I had to cut back, brightening up my kitchen.
Hoping the new month goes well for you all.
