Farm Fresh Central: Box 3



It's our 3rd Farm Fresh Central small mixed box!

  • Asparagus x1 bunch
  • Beans x1 bag
  • Broccoli x1
  • Carrot x3
  • Corn x2
  • Potato x1 bag (baby and washed)
  • Mushrooms x10
  • Onion (red) x3
  • Rocket leaves x1 box
  • Tomato x 6
  • Zucchini x1
  • Iceberg lettuce x1
  • Apple x6
  • Avocado x1
  • Bananas x4
  • Kiwi x2
  • Pineapple xhalf
  • Orange x4


I'm starting to think the $30 box could last us a week and a half. I've had to throw out a banana as it got overripe by the time we got round to eating it.

However a great way to use as many vegetables as you can is to throw a birthday party and make a whole bunch of salads. We invited a couple of friends over to celebrate the SO's birthday and I made:
  • bruschetta styled salsa (tomatoes, onion, cucumber and lemon juice)
  • guacamole (2 avacadoes, onion, olive oil, lemon juice, salt & pepper)
  • potato salad (potato, mayonnaise)
  • boiled corn
  • carrot and celery sticks with hummus
  • romaine lettuce with other salad leaves to go with the best sesame salad dressing known to man. (^_~)-☆


That still hasn't put a dent in our growing collection of oranges though.

Oktoberfest 2010



The first year I moved to Brisbane, I missed out on Oktoberfest due to girly hormones. The SO went and saw the birth of a beautiful relationship with his best bud and one of the sweetest girls I've ever met.

Last year, we got to go together and had a blast at the VIP tables our friends organised. But this year, as luck would have it, the SO had to miss out due to work travel. That wasn't stopping me from going though.

And the SO was super nice to jump straight into the car after arriving home from the airport to pick me up, cuz I had copious amounts of alcohol (2 steins, a champers and a schnapps. Basically piss-all by Oz standards) and he didn't want me walking through the Valley in the rain.

I'm going to burn in hell. XD
