Sorry everyone for the unannounced hiatus/disappearance off the blogosphere. I've been a little busy bee! I hope to at least punch out a post every week from now on - even though i haven't been blogging i have certainly been eating out still :p
A few thing's that i've been up to are..
Oztag - our team 'TAG TEAM" made it to the grand finals but lost by just TWO points!
& also training for the Oztag Nationals comp in Shell harbour next mth
Mountain biking - training for Capital punishment which is a 50KM mountain bike race in Canberra this weekend where i'll be conquering bike tracks around Mount Stromlo, Kowen forest, Madjura Pines & Black mountain (exciting!)
Guitar hero-ing - i love it!
Exploring local eats
I ate my way through Cabramtta tours (more info here)
Here is something I baked a while ago but never got around to blogging it.. & i've only used my madeleine pan once since then!
