Today was the calm after the storm. A tropical rainstorm blew through last night. Down at Whangateau, a lake was born (or rather there was a seriously flooded rugby field). We took the kids out for some field boarding. Take a look..
Yesterday before the storm arrived, we headed out to the Warkworth A and P show, a sort of agriculture/farming/craft/carnival type thing. The kids loved it and we thought the sheep racing was pretty hard case....
The soup was delicious; just some roma tomatoes roasted with garlic and thyme and blended up with some homemade chicken stock and loads of fresh basil. The following day I used the leftover soup as a pasta sauce and it we gobbled it up on fettucine with grated parmesan, super yum.
To Peter's horror I rented a few dvd's while I was in town to keep us entertained this week. The horror part is that they were all foreign films with subtitles. The first one we watched was a brilliant film "Seraphine". If you haven't heard of it I would highly recommend watching it. I am now obsessed with this woman's art but have yet to find somewhere to purchase a print of one of her beautiful paintings.
Cheerio for now
