I love going home! For anybody that lives abroad (I hope you agree with me) there is nothing better than the feeling of arriving home. I was eagerly peering out the window the whole flight, counting down the hours till touch down! My brother was waiting at the other end, and oh how good is family (one of the only things I like better than food, oh and Ryan <3). We went straight to Kirribilli from the airport (beautiful spot, if I won the lottery, that would be my investment), got beers from the bottle-O, sandwiches from the deli and parked our bums under the Harbor Bridge. What a view and what a city, so lucky to call it home.
My favorite places to see in Sydney!!!
>Kirribilli and or Blues point
>Woolloomooloo Wharf (restaurants include; China doll, Ottos)
>Manly beach (take the ferry from circular quay)
>Cermorne point (do the walk around the point 30-40 minutes, it's beautiful)
>Chatswood Chase shops (a cultural food pit in Sydney, plus great shops there-boutiques and brands)
>Oxford street (vintage shops and boutiques shops & restaurants)
>Parramatta Lake walk (Grab a coffee there, and sit out watching the birds fly over the lake)
>Newtown- Kings street (the pubs there are brilliant)
>Redfern-Everly Markets (Kylie Kwong an Aussie legend is often there)
Just a few snapshots of my long weekend at home! My home, family and city- I hope you enjoy a visit as much as I do. <3
Simple dinners are a necessity when working full time ahhh. This meal can be put together in a 30min including oven time! Yes, please!!!
1 red onion thinly sliced
1 red chilli thinly sliced
Mixed roasted red peppers sliced (I used pre-made ones kept in a jar with olive oil, if you don't have, you can just use fresh ones)
2 chirozo sausages chopped
Handful baby spinach
60 grams or 3 tbs crumbed goats cheese
Basil leaves torn for flavour (6 small leaves)
Parsley leaves to garnish for flavour
Pre-heat oven to 180degrees. Slice onion, chilli, sausages and peppers. Add the onion and chilli straight to the pan once sliced, so it starts to caramelize. Add the chopped sausage and cook with the onion and chilli for 5 min. Whilst sausage is cooking whisk the eggs together in a large bowl and add a splash of milk, salt and pepper. Stir through baby spinach and herbs in the onion and sausage mixture, place peppers over the mixture then pour the egg mixture into the pan. Crumb the cheese over the top and leave for a couple of minutes before placing in the oven to bake for 10-15minutes. Voila, 30 minute meal, which makes for a great lunch the next day!
My life really does revolve around food! I love learning about produce, reading new recipes, trying to create my own. Here are some of my food, travel and creative journeys, I hope you find them interesting or just delicious!
