Friday Lunch, Workout and Good Company

What a lovely day off! My mom and I decided to try somewhere new for lunch.

My sister and her friends recommended this place in Alexandria, an old warehouse converted into a cool ‘canteen’. The decor was beautiful! Lovely fresh produce, plants and homemade spreads and condiments.

Each table had different centre pieces. Pictured here is a tray with chilli, garlic, onions, jars with twigs and pot plants. This was my favourite! Gorgeous colours.

We sat here, with a big butternut between us.  We spent a good couple of hours soaking up the sun light and chatting away.

I had the cauliflower, celeriac potato & leek infused soup with parmesan and sour dough bread on the side. It was delicious! I want to try replicate it at home sometime this week. Full of flavour, thick and creamy.

My mom had the toasted sourdough with organic avocado and fresh tomato with olive oil and coriander. This bread was amazzzzing, and the tomatoes were juicy and well flavoured. We ended up ordering another one to share :).

After lunch we went to visit my grandparents and then it was time for Body Attack, which a good sweat as usual. I then popped by to visit Liv and had a quick cuppa tea.

Time now to head for my cousins for dinner. It is always a fun dinner filled with lots of kids running around, good food and very special company.

Happy Friday!

What do you like to do when you have a day off?


Rainy Day

Good morning, friends!

Don’t you agree that it is just THAT much harder getting out of bed on a rainy day?

Well that was certainly the case this morning. My day is starting nice and early, I am off to teach a Kindergarten class at a school around the corner. I am a ‘casual’ teacher which means I fill in when one of the permanent staff are away. It is great – I love it! But waiting for those calls can sometimes be a pain.

This morning I had my usual oats and tea for breaky

Oats and Tea mmm

and packed my school lunch

Vegetable minestrone soup, apple, banana, picnic and tea!

The plan was to go for a run after school, but this weather is not looking promising.

What exercise do you like to do on a rainy day? (or is it an automatic excuse for a ‘rest’ day?)

Anyway, lets stay optimistic and hope it clears up 🙂

Have a great day!
