Things I’ve loved about August

I really can’t believe that in just a couple of days it will be Spring! We moved into our house on the first day of Winter and I have to say, if this is as cold as it gets up here, we’ve got nothing to worry about! Winter has been wonderful. August has been particularly wonderful. Here’s a few things I’ve loved this month.

– Family ski trip! I wrote about it here.

– Birthdays!
August is a birthday heavy month for me. In the last 31 days, I’ve been to Sprout Dining for Leigh’s birthday, Kouzina Greco for Kylie’s birthday, made caramel corn cupcakes for Sheela’s birthday & spent last Sunday at a combined 30th, 60th & 65th lunch. Fun times, people, fun times!

– I went to an amazing lunch with Michelle Bridges. You can read all about that on Melly’s blog, here.

-We had a fab dinner at Toko in Surry Hills with Leigh and David. That place is good! Although far too dark to take any decent photos.

But here’s some pics of other foodie things from the past month.

From left to right: 
Top row – (1) Gorgeous display of food stuffs at Sprout Dining in Newcastle, (2) Seafood risoni pasta with home made tomato sauce, also at Sprout, (3) Almond Pithivier’s from Baked Uprising at Newcastle Farmers Markets.

Middle row – (1) Cake display at Silo Bakery in Canberra, which also has a (2) cheese room, (3) mushrooms, polenta & avocado for breakfast at The Red Door Cafe, Leura.

Bottom row – (1) Bubble & Squeak for dinner, made for no other reason than because it has a funny name. Husband said the patties were too perfectly round. Sheesh, hard to please that one ;p (2) Soft shell crab rolls from Umi sushi train in Darling Quarter (the newer part of Darling Harbour). (3) My favourite new snack – dried seaweed that’s a total hit in the office.

And that was my August. So tell me, readers of my blog – what were the best bits of your month?
