Hmmm… I started with the title Pretty and Pink…, then thought maybe Radiant Red…!
But really I think Majestic Magenta describes the colour at the end…
A while ago we were in Melbourne for a few days to spend time with our son and his family. This meant that I was able to visit my sister, Sonnie. Sonnie is an amazing cook, and had just finished making a batch of her late husband’s grandmother’s pickled red cabbage, a jar of which, she had kindly set aside for us, I was so excited and very grateful.

Life is busy, hectic, crazy, but life is wonderful!
This last week or so has been just as crazy as ever and I thought I would share a little of the goings on… Continue reading

She wanted to learn how to make my gluten free Weed Pies – I continue to be fascinated how popular these pies are. I did a blog on them last year and whenever I serve them up they are a hit – they have been served at lunches, morning teas, even the opening of the local Stratford Shakespeare Festival a couple of months ago!
