May tour of The Waffle garden

Hi guys. While I’m waiting for my garden photos to download, let’s talk about food, for a change! A couple of nights ago I made this chicken laksa. Highly recommended.

Mistletoe Thursday

Hello everyone. It’s been a good day. Do you like my mistletoe? I found loads of it on a tree at eye level. Usually it is in bundles right up at the top. I’m in a good and Christmassy mood. All shopping done online has turned up, no hassle. I just have a bit ofContinue reading “Mistletoe Thursday”

I like this sort and it’s really easy to do in the microwave. I have no idea what Acai is, but I’mContinue reading “Food glorious food”
