This and that!

Monday nights is our family dinner night, when the kids come over, so there is the six of us and grandson Owen. Monday night I made a stir fry with loads of veggies, chicken strips which i marinated in a Mongolian sauce and fried rice. I fried the veggies in about six batches for a few minutes each and then did the chicken separately. It was delicious.
Adrian and Chelsea have chooks so I usually have a bag of scraps for them to take home!
Owen is a good little eater....here he is munching on a corn cob
I took a selfie the other week with Owen while we were both munching on an apple...fun!
At foodland this week I noticed a special deal....buy 2 Philadelphia products and receive a springform pan FREE!! Ok,don't mind if I do!! I like to keep Philly cream cheese in the fridge anyway, so I bought 2 packs and received the pan. Very cool.
Once a year we have a weekend away somewhere catching up with our friends from when we used to live in adelaide (which has been over 23 years since we lived there). There are 5 other couples and us, so it's great to get together. This year we chose the barossa and stayed at a motel in tanunda. We wandered around the region Saturday afternoon, visiting a few foodie places and ending up at Maggie Beers which was really nice. Lots of tastings and purchasing was done as well as enjoying a coffee. Here are some pics from there.
Out on the decking at Maggies there is a pond and there were heaps of turtles leisurely swimming around.
I must say thank you to Joolz from www.simplyjoolz.blogspot.com for giving me some tips regarding blogsy. I have been using it to type this post and it's working fine, so hopefully it publishes ok....here goes!
