Good morning. As I write this, thousands of people will be up already attending dawn services for Anzac Day. This is such a significant day for us Australians and we are looking forward to watching the march in town later this morning – Alice is walking with her school and so proud. It does strike me as being a bit flippant to be posting about recipes and places I’d like to go on such a day but perhaps we can all just bookmark these links for the weekend.
Above are just a few stills from our week here on the farm, kicking off with 1. Just a gratuitous ‘Autumn on the farm’ picture! 2. We welcomed a group of agriculture students from Charles Sturt University to the farm yesterday. Tim spoke about running an agri-business, we showed them around the farm and had a very casual BBQ lunch. They were all so keen and bright – it’s good to see. 3. Still using up leftover poached quinces from Forage, we tried some with venison prosciutto on pizza the other day and they were just delicious. Always good to find new flavour combinations for pizza night. 4 & 5. And lastly, we introduced our poddy fawn to the herd this week. While I’d love to get her out of the garden (which is is systematically eating her way through), she isn’t quite ready yet to be repatriated!
The Friday List
This fruity afternoon iced bun from Pip is just the kind of thing I love to bake. And now we’ve started lighting the fire, I have a nice warm ‘prooving’ place ready to go.
