so here are 7 very random things


1) reading: 'Brideshead revisted'
love the penguin paperbacks and at $10 a pop, such an affordable treat

2) lunch today was a byzantine snack (i was still full from dinner last night!)
homemade babaganoush, olives and crusty torn bread - delicious!


3) my darling Grandmother Evridiki, became a grandmother (yiayia in Greek) for the first time at age 39!
which is the age I am now...Eeek!

4) on Friday night my sister and I took our mum to see Julio Iglesias, in concert - it bought back many childhood memories as my mum would play his records all the time!
we all had a fantastic night...

5) Ive got some fun new cards on offer over at Leeloo and Angela has posted an interview with me on the Leeloo blog! have a look if you like!

6) i love Pomegranates - my parents have a tree in their garden so im a lucky girl!

7) here is my babaganoush recipe:-
2 eggplants (roasted and skinned)
Juice of 2 small lemons
3 tablespoons Tahini paste
1 -2 large garlic cloves

Blitz it all up in the blender - add salt to taste

  2. Oooh, is that a pomegranate tree growing in Sydney? I was reading Stefano Manfredi's pomegranate recipes in the SMH and wondering whether a tree would grow here and how long it would take to fruit. Do you know?

  8. Gorgeous pics! I'll have to try that recipe, it sounds pretty manageable for someone who finds it hard to follow directions. Not to mention delicious!
