Pandan coconut crepes, iphone games and a Holiday Greeting

I've recently got an iphone and got very addicted to these three games

- smurfs village
- bakery story
- restaurant story

Haha, i'm sure you guys have all heard of at least the last game, but these games are sooo addictive (much more addictive then papertoss, fruit ninja, and angry birds, IMO).

Restaurant story
mac & cheese, omlettes, french toast, garden salad, bacon & eggs

Bakery Story
choc chip cookies, tea, coffee, brownies, macarons, chocolate cake, carrot cake, cinnamon rolls

i love playing smurfs!

- build mushroom houses (the more you build the more smurfs you get to work for you)
- plant crops of fruit and vegetables
- complete requests from Papa smurf
- play games for money and XP

There's alot more but its such a rewarding game i reckon, so cute as well.

I've been practising making crepes lately, i find it really therapeutic the repetitiveness of it all, and they are delicious with almost anything (spreads and jams) but on this occasion ive made a pandan custard. To save time i bought these from Cabramatta for $2 a pop!

all you need to do is add boiling water & stir.

I've used a recipe from, repalced the milk with coconut milk, and the plain flour with wholewheat flour.

1 cup plain flour (or wholewheat flour)
2 cups milk (or coconut milk)
3 eggs
olive oil cooking spray

Sift flour into a bowl. Whisk milk and eggs together in a jug. Add milk mixture to flour. Whisk until well combined.

Spray a medium, non-stick frying pan with oil. Heat over medium heat.

Pour 2 1/2 tablespoons batter into pan. Swirl to cover base. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until light golden. Turn over and cook for 1 minute.

Transfer to a plate. Cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter.

spoon custard into a long line, sprinkle with dessicated coconut, roll up like you would a spring roll. Serve!

Lastly, i would like to wish every one of my readers a very Merry Christmas, and a fantastic New year! I hope you all get lots of pressies, eat lots of yummy food, and a great holiday break (if you do get one).

I return to work on the 3rd January :( But i have a few things planned for my one and a bit break

-brunching, lunching and dinnering
- yoga
- gym
- coastal walk
- ice skating
- family get togethers

Can't wait! Cya everyone :D

Jonahs Restaurant - A special Lunch treat for Bigbear

Hi Everyone just a photo post today of a lovely lunch i had with BigBear a few months ago to celebrate his birthday! It's not very often that we go out for a fancy meal which means that whenever we do (special occasions) we both feel very spoilt!

Lunch was amazing! Because we came from Ettalong on the ferry, they offered pick up at the wharf and drop off after lunch as well, that was sweet - on the ride up i realised if we had tried to walk i wouldnt of made it up the very steep hill in my high heels :s It felt like we were going up and up and up a never ending steep winding road. But wow the view from our table was breathtaking (we didnt get a window seat but the view was just as nice)

Scallops with a Spanish onion and red wine compote, compressed grilled pineapple
with cardamom and pistachio vinaigrette $30

Half dozen Sydney rock served with lemon and raspberry vinegar mignonette $28

Hand cut sebago chips with rosemary and thyme salt. $12

Black-Angus Beef Scotch fillet, Rangers Valley
Polenta cake, broad beans and red wine jus $48

Kingfish and Crystal Bay prawns, S.A and Queensland
In a ginger and kaffir lime vegetable nage with baby spring vegetables. $48

passionfruit pannacotta

All about chocolate $16

Apple tart "like a Tatin" with Granny Smith and Calvados sorbet $18

Petite fours

My favourites were the scallops, the chocolate dessert, and the hand cut chips! Altogether the bill was high, and close by there was a table of 8 people so we were wondering how much their bill was ... four figured for sure !

After lunch we were invited out to the patio where there were blankets for us to sit and enjoy the view (it was a windy day so i took up the blanket offer) and then we were driven down back to the wharf to catch our ferry back to Ettalong.

Lunch was so nice, and i hope you enjoyed it Hun!
