saturday: photos + words
Last Saturday was “socially fruitful” because we were able to catch up with different people over meals.
For breakfast, we met up with the couple from our former church whom we had been mentoring since June’ 08. The cafe had an industrial chic look and even though it was tiny, I must say the food and drinks were pretty impressive.
I ordered an eggs florentine – poached eggs served with hollandaise sauce and smoked salmon, baby spinach with toasted turkish bread. And you know you are in a good place when the tea you ordered is organic and served with pure honey. Yummy-licious!
On our way for our lunch appointment, we saw a church garage sale and pulled over for a quick look. I was happy to snap up a handmade fabric Christmas wreath at an unbelievable price of $1! Can’t wait to decorate our home for Christmas now…
For lunch, we went to a new noodle place with aunt and uncle. It’s always good to catch up with them whenever time permits us to. We talked about doing go-karting or paintball one of these days…that’s how cool they are!
In late afternoon, we went over to Nico and Zoe’s for some home-baked goodness – blueberry and chocolate-macademia muffins. Gotta love a man who cooks and Nico apparently is quite the kitchen Nazi at home being French himself!
Another reason why we were at Nico and Zoe’s was because I wanted to see Zoe’s latest toy – a sewing machine. We’ve talked about learning sewing together and she had now beat me to it by having her own machine. She let me have a go at her ‘baby’ and I tried sewing a pair of pants for Lukah…Not too bad for a first attempt huh? I promised the kiddo that it would be in time for Christmas!
We stayed on for dinner and decided to do Chinese takeaway which we introduced the couple to weeks ago and they had been hooked ever since. We had fried rice, salt and pepper spare ribs, vegetables and tofu stir fry and roast duck (the best in Perth in our opinion!).
