Homecoming Picnic

So I’ve been massively ill since Tuesday. Everything was prepped and organised for a little shoot that day however, and most unfortunately, I only managed a few minutes of snapping before collapsing in bed. I’ve been drowning in blankets since and last night was the first time I was able to leave the house without crying like a total manbaby. The number of cool and important thing I’ve had to cancel this this week is super disappointing and even as I type this I should actually be attending a friend’s BBQ (pray for Mojo).

Upon reviewing my very few recipe photos from Tuesday I began thinking… my intention of starting this blog 11 months was not just to publish original recipes but also to celebrate the occasionan of food, since it’s such an huge element that brings us all together. The last (and might I add FIRST) time I posted about such an occasion was Julie’s baby shower in July of last year. So, Until my body drags itself out of its present, feverish daze I thought I’d share some photos from a few weeks ago, a little picnic at Sydney’s Hyde Park with the greatest of friends… and some new ones too. Amazing eats should go without saying because these guys are the greatest in the kitchen. Oh and see if you can spot my Jasmine + Pandan Macarons!

      No way! Who do you recognise? You’re definitely no stalker, Sydney is becoming an increasingly smaller place these days.

          Awesomeeeeee… What a great day of fun fun fun in the sun. And I agree, it’s nice to celebrate life and its people just as much as the food that we love. What a colourful day full of joy and laughs. Can’t be beat ;)

          What a beautiful sunny day out! Can I ask a question? Where did you get those fantastic red mary janes? I have been looking all over for a pair! Hope you feel better soon. I really love your blog – your recipes are as fantastic (if not more) than those red mary janes! :)

            Thanks for the kind words Anna! I wish I could answer your question but those feet aren’t mine, they belong to my very pretty friend in red. I’ll have to ask her where she got them from!
