Today I saw the film Julie and Julia at St Andrews’ Hall. What a fun film it was. It made me think about going through our Pick Share Eat recipe book, recently launched at the Wattle Festival! Last night I cooked the Broccoli and snow pea stir fry recipe, using quite a few ingredients from our garden. It was very tasty!

Those of you with an elderberry tree might find enough flowers to make elderberry wine or champagne. If you make it now it will be ready for Christmas.

We have a barbeque booked that is covered by a shade sail that will protect us from minor climatic issues. Antipasto and cheese plates are available to purchase or bring a picnic.
