Ok so forgive me for having a whinge here but my eye is killing me!!!! Went to the hospital yesterday morning and it is some Mibomianitis or something. I have to take antibiotics for 2 months can you believe it. I am a little ticked off as next Friday the girls and I have big plans for a girls weekend in Brisbane. It's Ashleigh and Danielle's 20th birthday on Sunday and we and Alicia are going to Brissy for a couple of nights. We are booked into Bretts Wharf for dinner on Saturday night. I truly cannot wait for that. Bretts is one of the best seafood restaurants in Queensland and I love seafood, well just food actually, so this thing better not be so red and sore by then. Anyway on to happier things......
Liss the sweetheart sent me these gorgeous magnets in the mail. She couldn't be a part of my Pay it Forward game (you can though) go to the link and check it out....but she wanted to send me a little something anyway and it arrived on Friday. Soooooo exciting to get things in the mail!!! So once again anyone who wants to play just post a comment here telling me you would like to play and we'll go from there. Liss is a girl after my own heart, I love her photographic style and as I float around blogland I keep seeing her name pop up on sites that I want to follow too, so we must have a bit in common. Don't you just love blogging for that reason? So Liss thank you, thank you, thank you, I love your magnets and they are on my refrigerator doing a great job already. I think of you every time I see them. Thanks so much.
So now to Friday night cocktails. Every couple of weeks the girls and myself and Adrian have decided we are going to do cocktail night. We choose a cocktail and we have to add food that we feel might go with the cocktail. Friday night was our first official cocktail/food night. Adrian was the starter and he chose Strawberry Daquiris, yum.
The Daquiris were pretty good, a bit sweet for me, well sweet and sour but nice. His food was really good. He got some little lamb steaks and wrapped bacon round them like a tiny Fillet Mignon and they were delicious. We had prunes wrapped in bacon as well, there is a pattern here isn't there he does love his bacon. Then we had the best pizzas. Butternut Pumpkin & Chicken with Cashew and Basil pesto. Oh my it was good. O and I almost forgot we had sweet little Prawn Cocktails the old fashioned way. Shredded lettuce topped with fresh king prawns and Thousand Island dressing.
