My final installment of food snippets whilst in Adelaide:
Soooo this Sunday we leave for a 5 month trip of a lifetime!
Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Nepal, Europe (in general!) NYC, then moving to Canada for a year (or two or more or who knows, so don’t ask me!) 😀
So this blog will do one of two things..
a) slow down a little while I enjoy my actual LIFE and can’t be bothered with this cyber world
b) feel bad and put some posts up for my family and friends
c) continue on it’s merry way because I will miss it
a&b&c) a slittle of all
Once moved to Canada this blog will change from “in the sunshine” to “in the snow” and will feature more scarves, boots, beanies, poutine and burgers than ever before! I tried to refrain last time I was over there but it was just too too hard for my weary chipsngravy loving soul!

So. Thus. Finally. To conclude. In conclusion.

Bon voyage! Wish me good times, new food experiences and I’ll see ya soon! Don’t you go anywhere now, ya hear?!
Much love,

Winter is here. The heater is on. I have the flu and I love pie. I am yet to master an amazing pie and so I settle (and by settle, i don’t mean settle at all) for a home-made pie from Swedish Tarts. This place is such a little gem. So cute and the cakes all look delicious. Their pancakes are pretty effing amazing too.You can even buy a bowl of latte or hot chocolate. REALLY. It arrives in a big bowl and you sit all cosy and slurp it up. The pies go for $5 each but are a hearty meal, and definitely worth it. The bonus is that you can buy them cold or get them to heat it up for you. So i buy them cold and throw them in a 180C oven for half an hour and they are crisp, moist and amaaaaazzziiinnngggg.

So far I have eaten the mushroom and leek, lentil and sweet potato and pumpkin and feta.

My sister favours the mushroom and leek one, I think thats because it tastes like the mushroom and leek thing mum has always cooked. But I am a lover of the lentil and sweet potato. It has a slight curry taste and is so yummy and rich and hearty and just plain good. I imagine the pastry is extremely unhealthy for you because the smell of butter wofts through the house when I am heating them up.

Anywho. Amazing. Best pies i’ve ever eaten.
