FABULOUS FRIENDS

We are so lucky to be blessed with lots of lovely friends. We enjoy having lunches, dinners, trips to the movies and holidays together. On Sunday we visited friends on the coast for lunch (last post) and........

.......on Wednesday we went by train to the Brisbane city to have lunch with......
..... Richard, Josephine and Colin at the Whistle Stop Bar.

On Good Friday we invited Norma and Joe for lunch and to discuss holiday plans.

I balanced the camera on the back of a chair.

BB barbequed New Zealand Snapper, I stuffed it with asian style vegies and herbs. Joe and Norma are from NZ, so I thought they would like it.

This looks a mess but it tasted good. Greek salad, bean salad, pumpkin salad, Russian salad and a stuffed baked potato. The fish is hiding underneath.

I was too lazy to decorate eggs this year so we made do with a commercial variety, including NZ marshmellow chocolate eggs from Joe and Norma.

  2. Beautiful fish dish - made my Good Friday attempt look darn right horrible. My invitation to the Bohlen fish feast must have got lost in the mail! Please in future phone me for your epicurean feasts. The post is NOT dependable!

  3. Your beautiful fish dish on Good Friday made my attempts look darn horrible .
    Obviously my invitation got lost in the mail. Please next time phone!
    I think maybe the two of you could make plenty of money out of cook books! I will nominate myself as the official taster! My fee will be negotiable!
    My fish was out of a packet - supposedly "John Dory" fillets - more like cardboard shark!

  12. Lauren and I went to the Lindt cafe while in Sydney...yuuummmmeeeee

    And those dark lindt bunnies are just divine - and not too sweet....

    As for the mobile blogspot - I have a relatively new phone and I can type in the URL and log in but only create a title - the cursor wont go to the text box....think its time to give up and get a laptop for travelling!
