Dinner From The Garden

I got all excited last night and cooked up a feast. Boccolini with Kecap Manis, Stir fried mixed vege’s with chilli and hoisin, lemon chicken and chicken teriyaki, with rice and prawn crackers. I was full as hell at the end of all this. All the vege was grown in the garden. About as close to self sufficient as we can get.


Eastern Osprey

During the middle of the day, its usually quiet here. Most critters are taking it easy and having a rest. NEK MINIT, there was a huge commotion. Every bird in existence started going off its tits and losing its shit, taking off and flying about, or away if they are fast enough. Why? An eagle was doing loops on the thermals above our place. Its funny, these tiny birds call Pee Wee’s all fly straight towards the eagle and start to harass it. An eagle can have a wing span of 2m and a pee wee about 30cm for a size context, but the gutsy little birds take on Goliath HAHAHA. The eagle in the picture above is only a juvenile, maybe half grown. Hard to get a good photo of it with only a 200mm lens, but its the best I could do.


Chicken Pot Pie

Geepers creepers batman, its been nearly a month since I have posted anything here. Its not that I have not had plenty to post about, its just I have been so busy with stuff around here that I have not even thought about posting anything.

So, here was dinner, chicken pot pie with greens in garlic and butter. I pretty much grew all the vege in the garden and made the puff pastry from scratch. Cooked the pie in the fireplace oven for that firey goodness LOL.

Well hope to get back to posting about better things than this, when all I have been doing is painting walls and renovating the bathroom after discovering the shower was leaking. So regrouted the shower floor and sealed it, ripped up all the floor tiles and now am waiting on new flooring to arrive to lay. The joys of home ownership LOL.

Piece out.
