Hi everyone and welcome to this week’s Top Three Tuesday
Last week I was heading to a quiz night and I wanted to make sure I took something other than the usual chips and chocolate to nibble on during the evening. I wanted something slightly healthier and more filling, so I whipped up a batch of mini quiches. Oh my goodness they were so good, I couldn’t be bothered making my own pastry so I used a few sheets of frozen shortcrust pastry, meaning not only were they super yum they’re also super easy to make. I did end up making a lot so I froze about a dozen of them to keep on hand for another quiz night or morning tea. I’ll post some proper pics and the recipe soon. This is just a quick pic I snapped before putting them all away.
- Wine Barrels
I have been wanting to get some half wine barrels to have in my garden for ages. Every time I go to Margaret River or out to the Swan Valley a lot of the wineries and restaurants are using old wine barrels as plant pots. I love this look so much. I have seen a few for sale at nurseries and also at hardware centres, they looked nice but they have been made specifically to sell as plant pots, they had never seen grapes or a drop wine in their life. Not what I was looking for. A friend from work told about some she had found on Gumtree, they were authentic Margaret River wine barrels, that were still stained with red wine – just what I was looking for!! I picked mine up the other day and I love them. Plus they smell amazing 🙂 We had a lot of rain here the other and I hadn’t got around to drilling drainage holes in the bottom yet – I turned water into wine 😛
- Finding Dory!!
I have been waiting forever for this movie to come out. I absolutely loved Finding Nemo and along with the rest of the world I am amazed it took them so long to release a sequel. There have been sequels to Cars, Monsters Inc., Planes and Toy Story but never Nemo, until now. There have been so many funny meme’s online regarding Finding Dory and these are just a few of my favourites and they pretty much all relate to me 😛 I hoping to go see it over the weekend, preferably late in the evening when all the kids have gone to be or Gold Class which isn’t designed for a lot of kids – see below.
P.S In the quiz night I went to last week, they had a Pixar round – Guess who got 10/10?? 😛 As I post this I am just about to head out the door to another quiz night. This one is at a pub though with $15 Steak and chips. Woo Hoo 🙂 Fingers crossed they have a Pixar round at this one too 😛
