The Four Major Food Groups

Aiy??? What's up dave? We were expecting the final journey home post! Grrrrrr... we're mad now.

Ok, maybe you're not. I still do have a couple of cool things to show you as we go from Meningie back to Sturt --like a tile mosiac on an outhouse-- but I don't have time to get that up today.

And since I'm waaaaay behind in my posting I thought I'd put something up for you.

We eat rather well. We also eat fresh stuff. It's easy down here as even the chicken shop up the street gets free-range, no growth hormone, antibiotic-free chooks. And they're good too.

I also make all four of the four major food groups: Cheese, Bread, Beer, and Chocolate. I'm getting very good at it. So good that MIL refuses to drink a Cascade or even a James Boag's anymore cus my brews are very good.

So's my bread. In fact she hasn't touched a slice of store brought bread in over a year.

My first try at making Wensleydale Cheese came out perfect and she says it's even better than the stuff she used to get back home.

Chocolates? Well, how can you go wrong? It's CHOCOLATE!!!!

Here's proof (get it? like proofing the yeast?) of my awesomely good standard bread:
homemade bread

I haven't even used the bread machine to make the dough for months now.

Oh, and pasta should be on that list too.

Ahhhhhhhhh, food... mmmmmmmmmm.

Wow. I leave for almost 3 weeks and you are still going. Quite the epic trip you are on!

You'd be amazed at what you can get out of a 3 day trip. Especially when you have over 2500 photos to go through --that's why the posts are kinda spread out.
