so that was breakfast?
So everyone congregated in my small place and my little Weber worked overtime cooking both chicken and lamb souvlaki, marinated chicken, sausages etc. It was a lovely meal, despite being spread over a long time. I packed up and sent heaps of leftovers home with each of them.
The wrappers in the photos were from lovely Florentines one DIL made. She left me two which was what I asked for. She used chocolate and dried fruit from Alfafa House in Newtown which is a food co-operative which also sells to the public. Organic and usually fair traded stuff. Bring your own containers etc. Typical Newtown shop, but the products are always good quality.
I eat untoasted, unsweetened muesli with stewed or frozen fruit for breakfast. I think I can count the Florentines as healthy? They had lots of dried fruit in them and very fresh nuts of several varieties. Very dark chocolate which packed a punch of caffeine. The florentines weren't the ones in cake shops which seem no thicker than a sheet of commercial pastry. These were chunky. And very delicious.
I don't buy flowers usually and had really wanted some when I was shopping on Friday. However everything was very expensive and I refused to buy any. I couldn't work out why till I remembered Mothers' Day.
