It’s been a while since I blogged about the mundane. You know, every day stuff. And so here you go. My week (ish) in pictures. Not in chronological order.
Turning into a vain princess
I had filming for No Limits yesterday. The final shoot of the season. And last shoot I had my hair curled and a bit of lipstick applied. And in three weeks I have purchased three lip glosses and a hair curler.
My face was a bit sore yesterday, and I have a mild cold, so being pampered was just what I needed. And it was so nice to have someone pay attention to making me look good – I find that really hard to come by with hairdressers.
Even though I was a lot redder than usual, the lovely make-up artist made sure my lippie stood out. Wow. I never thought the day would come when I’d get a little excited over make-up and hair.
No Limits fun
It is always fun on set! Yesterday it seemed pretty quiet around the traps though. We all arrived at different times. We managed to snap this photo between episodes. Pictured: Elvira, Phin and Louis.
I grated the carrots and chopped the other vegies.
Cook the prawns – I cooked them in a little organic salted butter from Tasmania.
Mix up a dressing of mayonnaise and sour cream (and horseradish, but I couldn’t find any) and lime juice. Mum bought me the cool lime squeezer. I also have a lemon squeezer similar.
Assemble tacos on a tortilla. I added some jalapeno salsa. Because I am addicted to the stuff and eat it by the spoonful.
Fold in half and eat. Yummmmm.
Tweeting the the stars
I put a tweet out about Neighbours. And then to my surprise, one of my favourite singers, Bob Evans, tweeted me back!
Tweet of the Month
Two margaritas on a school night. This one was citrus with vanilla salt.
Corn on the cob – the most amazing corn we’d ever had. And that salsa in the background – wow!! The corn had spices and cheese on it.
Ceviche – market fish in coconut milk and lime. It was tart and refreshing and delicious.
Tortilla. This was the lamb one, with cheese and lemon. We stacked it with that salsa, which made it even better.
Goat and corn. It was great. Quite a big serving. My friend had two pieces of goat. I had one.
And this was fantastic – corn icecream with caramelised popcorn!
Here is Mitch with our second serving of corn. We got hungry.
By this time it was already 9.00pm and we’d been there for over three hours. People were still queuing. We felt quite special to be there eating and drinking at the bar.
The service was attentive and really quick. The noise level was good. It was very trendy in there. The food was amazing – definitely not your Taco Bill type Mexican. I highly recommend eating at Mamasita.
Mitch and I met in about 1993 when his brother was my wardmate in hospital. His family and I have been friends ever since.
Carlyfindlay.com was launched in a 30 minute lunch break on Thursday.
My friend, work and uni colleague Jess created the site and social media strategy, and I provided most of the content. Here I am pressing publish.
