As a woman and I stood in the queue at Hausfrau in Yarraville on Saturday, lamenting whether to choose a sweet or savoury treat, or both, I said to her, ‘Go on, you deserve it’. And she laughed, saying she did deserve a sweet treat alongside her savoury and salad. And I deserved it too. Two plates of deliciousness. And then some.
I admit, my diet this weekend has not been balanced. It’s been heavy on the comfort, light on the healthy.
some belly dancing being in the same room as belly dancers because it was too hot and humid for me to take part gave me solace that I was sort of exercising the comfort food off. Through osmosis?
Outfit 22 of the 30 for 30 remix: harem pants, Bob Evans tee, Mimco headband and hip scarf and Jiffies.
On the way to Hausfrau, I saw this awesome street art.
I sat down for a late lunch and the Saturday Age. Elderflower is my favourite boutique softdrink.
First course was Croque Monsieur. Toasted ham white bread sandwich topped with bechamel sauce and cheese. Yum.
Then a blueberry Madeleine cake, eaten as I read how to make a chocolate cognac cake. The cake I ate was like a bread and butter pudding.
Two plates of deliciousness indeed.
I went to Hausfrau on my way to see Rabbit Hole at the cinema (to cool down).
Today I met Kristy and her very nice boyfriend for brunch at Fraus.
It was Kristy’s birthday yesterday and she had a lovely weekend in Melbourne being spoilt.
Today was Kristy’s first Fraus experience. She went into a chocolate coma with a thick hot chocolate…
…and a crepe filled with ricotta, and topped with figs and hot chocolate.
I was recognised by a blog reader. Sassy, left of me in the below picture, was excited to meet me in real life!
I had my usual order: thick hot chocolate and a Florentine crepe. Quite healthy really!
This is outfit 23 of the 30 for 30 remix. Seven to go! Mimco headband, Target blazer, Valleygirl tee, Sussan jeans, Diana Ferrari shoes, Tiffany necklace and Lavallier bangle.
It was lovely seeing Kristy again, and finally meeting her boyfriend. I will see her in a month when I go to Sydney to speak on a panel at the Aussie Blogger’s Conference.
I cooked a healthy dinner of pork and vegetables tonight. No pictures. But I did bake a fruit pie, and took pictures, because you deserve it.
Apricots, passionfruit, pears, blueberries, rhubarb, a plum and a fig.
