Baking Bread with Rowan

Last week my good friend Rowan came around to teach me how to make bread.  I'll soon be 30 and I decided it was about time that I gave it a shot.  Rowan is so much fun to hang out with, and he's also a great cook...friend with benefits!  He also made a brilliant bread making soundtrack CD...I have a lot of love for this guy just now!  All in all it was a really fun day.
There isn't much to it...flour, yeast and water.

This bit was quite tough and a full upper body work out!  I mostly watched this bit and Rowan worked his magic.


Post oven and looking good!  YUM!

I made soup to go along with the delicious bread.  Tasty, tasty, tasty!!!

Hello new life in Australia!

I recently moved to Melbourne with my husband, FOR GOOD! We met 5 years ago on a drunken and magical night out in the city, and since then Melbourne has always felt like home.  I love Melbourne!  I really, really, love Melbourne!  We've travelled and lived in lots of different places but Melbourne has always felt like the happiest place for both of us.  We've talked so often of our favourite people, places and memories, so it feels just fantastic to finally be here.

So here we are - a new life, a new start, new beginnings.  On the lead up to our move here I've been thinking of all the things I want to do in my new life, and thinking of how I can be the 'ultimate me'; like being more creative, making my own work more, baking, cooking, exercising more (cough, cough, actually doing exercise) saying yes to new experiences, not being afraid of new people, being nicer, reading more, doing new hobbies, volunteering and making more time for people I care about - to name just a few!

Writing a blog is on my list of things I wanted to do in my new Australian life, so here it first post and a new beginning!

Cheers to Melbourne, to the better me and to new beginnings! Oh and also cheers to Cheesymite Scrolls...they are so good!!!!
