My lovely weekend continued on Saturday morning with a visit to the local farmer’s market held on the river bank in Wanganui. I bought venison, eggs, zucchini and coffee. Since I ordered venison at a restaurant recently and found out that my diet programme (Fitday) gives it such a low fat to protein ratio I’ve been very pleased to find this market stall that sells it at such a great price. And the coffee there is locally roasted and freshly ground so I buy 500gm at a time for our espresso machine.
On Saturday afternoon I baked a birthday cake (apple, walnut and cranberries) for Helen, iced it with melted dark chocolate and then lazed around for a bit. We had dinner at a restaurant that evening with Helen’s friends and took the cake back to her place for dessert and coffee. A very pleasant evening!
I woke up on Sunday with a sore throat and chest so did some more lazing around most of the day until late afternoon when I was feeling better. Robert and Jennifer came round about 5.00 pm to install our new stair lights. It was a big production – a very tall ladder and a lot of instructions issued but its all done now and looks fantastic! Jennifer and I cut some carrot and celery sticks and made a batch of garlic mayo. Terry cooked a bbq (venison sausages, lamb steaks, beef rissoles, zucchini and potato slices) and then we had a couple of games of crib. A win each and we decided to leave it at that...
So, yeah, I had a great weekend. How was yours?
