Random Update Stardate: 10.06.13 or What to do on a wet long weekend...

Here is my to do list of things to make on a wet weekend:

  1. jerky
  2. feta cheese
  3. bread (think I will go french)
  4. to go with the bread I'll whip out some homemade peanut paste
  5. harvest some silverbeet and make a leek, silverbeet and feta pie
  6. for after the pie dinner, better make some booze. 

Don't believe me?  Here's some pictorial proof.  First shot shows my rum, award winning Purple Onion Feta, jars of peanut butter and a bag of the jerky.

Here is the gathered silverbeet and the already half eaten french bread (damn that thing was light!).  Oh, and Craig - it was made entirely in the bread maker.  I let it do my rectangle loaves (and yeah, it has a french bread setting to cope with the higher sugar and butter content).

Finally, we get to the results of the Silverbeet, Leek and Feta pie.  If it tastes as good as it looks, I'll be a very happy man.

She does indeed Lissa.  Oh, and the pie was fantastic!

Good grief Rozie is one lucky girl. I hope she appreciates you!

LOL. I like his "Vintner recommends caution."

My Dad's labels were 'Chateau de Saxe. Vintner recommends caution'. The 'chateau' was a wooden out-house leaning on props.

LOL - I have a matching series of those labels.  They make me laugh.

Love the label too! I've got one too I'll have to post one time.

Awesome! I just didn't have the energy today. The couch was my friend as I nursed a hangover and watched movies and football! I actually was thinking about making bread but nothing happened...
