One of the highlights was our visit to Maggie Beers kitchen. Pictured here.
Maggie has a fantastic produce store where we bought a simple picnic lunch. Later, we attended a cooking demonstration in the kitchen (the same kitchen as tv show).
Our class was on verjuice.
I was fascinated. We now use verjuice regularly and buy large bottles. Verjuice is unfermented grape juice. The Romans were using it to enhance their dishes! A good example is to remove your roast veggies 15 mins early, splash with verjuice and finish cooking. Amazing!!

I thought I would show you the old garage which will convert to a studio.
This weekend a new roof
Larger windows next. Then a complete internal make over
I made sure food was ready for the team!
|The team enjoying roast duck by the fire after a busy day. My husband Chris. Vince and Margie, our shack shareholders!!|
We love these shareholders meetings.

We keep in touch and have shared great joys and deep sadness over the years. Knowing someone who knew your family, your teachers, your neighbors is truly special.
I love the fact that we choose to keep the letters and cards going over modern technology. My friend said this week how much she enjoys making cards and how much she loves receiving mine.
Send a card!

I had to laugh when I saw her checking us out Sunday morning.

|We have headed to the beach for a much needed rest! Whilst there are still a few things to finish before we can rent our cottage to holiday makers, it's just perfect for us. This is a place to relax and unwind. The beds are so comfy and the kitchen works like a charm. We have a heat pump plus an open fire( of course) and the best part is being only a short stroll to magnificent beaches.|
Thought I'd share some pics with you.

We have a large heat pump so would only use this on weekends or some evenings. We are thinking of putting a gas cook top in so perhaps a fire could go in at the same time.
I'd be interested in others thoughts on these fires.
You know I'm mad on our fire but it is messy!
