Weekend Excursion

We went on a little drive to the BP at Stapylton. Strange destination? Well they sell Krispy Kreme's there, so we decided to go and try them.

We e-tolled our way down the motorway and had a delicious lunch at the servo (they sell great vegie burgers at the Flames shop there!!) and then dessert of Krispy Kremes. I had a cinnamon, Janet had a chocolate glazed. The verdict? Whilst they were indeed tasty (we haven't met a donut yet that we didn't like.....), Dreamy Donuts are way better.

Cute Mini Cupcakes!

I made these last weekend - my birthday cakes if you like (no candles though!!) I used the mini muffin tin that Janet gave me for my birthday. These were such cute little bite-sized cupcakes! (I used Nigella's fairy cake recipe from "How to be a Domestic Goddess" - so easy as you just bung everything into the food processor)

its Magic!

Last Friday, we went out for dinner for my Birthday. I chose to go to The Magic Wok in Sunnybank, as its a vegetarian restaurant and I have been wanting to go there for ages! I was really looking foward to trying lots of different things, instead of the usual thing of having 1 vegie dish. SO Mum, Dad, Scott, Gina, Janet & I all had the Magic Wok experience! It was kind of strange, because they have things on the menu that do not sound like they are vegie - Lemon Chicken for example! But they are all vegetarian. Lemon ChickenSweet & Sour Fish

So the verdict on the food? My favorite dish was the crispy fried egg plant. If I went again, I wouldn't be ordering the fake "meat" dishes. But as a novelty, it was fun. That chicken was very chicken-like. And Janet, who is no vegetarian enjoyed the food, so perhaps the fake meat dishes are best for meat eaters who don't want to feel like they are missing out on anything.
