Above is my haul from a visit to the Flemington Farmers Market. You might spy some spaghetti squash that I stuffed recently. The plums and apples went into a crumble but the quince are still waiting to be used. I made more golden beetroot nut roast, a rice and vegie bake, and lots of soup. The Red Beard sourdough bread was soft and delicious. We also loved the apple juice and bagels for lunches.
mentioned recently. I was not overly impressed at first but it has grown on me (not literally). I had so many good ideas for using the cheese in cooking but found myself unable to resist it grilled on toast. It was just so creamy and cheesy and delicious.
I tasted the Guinness crisps and liked them. We agree that if blind tasted we wouldn't have guessed Guinness. It was more a deep savoury flavour that made the crisps look a little dirty. The label had lots of chatter about how you eat these with your mates at the pub or watching the weekend match. Not for the nerd by himself in the corner then!

The brown basmati rice was great with the Down Home Curry with Tofu & Broccoli from Isa Does It. Yes I was cooking from a cookbook but I didn't really follow the recipe closely or take photos. Mine had chickpeas and silverbeet! It was delicious and even better the second day.
