Family Feasting

This weekend we had the rare opportunity to have both daughters (and grandson) in the same place at the same time – wonderful!  We thank The Little Cheese Shop in Bayswater WA for a sumptuous array of cheeses and accompaniments that we shared with the Dinner Ladies Wimmera Grain Salad , pink humus, spicy meatballs (and yellow  – pumpkin hummus – not pictured) and  Madfish Sparkling wine for  a most enjoyable and delicious evening!

Today IS My Birthday

Yesterday afternoon more guest arrive d- my mum, my sister and my brother in law and Rachel went home. We had a few drinks and then a lovely roast meal followed by mini plum puddings and custard – a Christmas in July theme. We followed with this more wine and some locally sourced fortified wine.

It was not surprising  that we all slept very well and late. After breakfast we did another mini wine tour this time stopping at Madfish/Burch Family wines ( which is 5 minutes from our house) and makes one of our favorite shirazs –  the Leston and  the delicious Muscat dessert wine. On our way to the Margaret River Chocolate Factory ( where we bought dark chocolate soft nougat)  we stopped at Vasse Felix Winery and sampled and then bought a bottle of their amazing dessert style wine – Cane Cut. I think we will be enjoying my birthday treats for a while.  🙂
