Cooking




I haven't been around much lately I know. Been sick, and birthday partying, and sick and tired and stuff like that.
But here are some recent photos. This is a lovely truck and trailer load of firewood my darling biggest little brother and his wife brought me for my birthday present. The BEST present!!!






And these are my pickled lemons in a great big jar. So easy to do. Cut lemons into 4 lengthwise, and layer in a jar with coarse salt. Put the lid on and leave them for a few weeks until they go gooey and get that lovely oily syrup at the bottom.










And then you can use them for all sorts of things.









One of them is this yummy leg of lamb my Best Sister brought from Tasmania last week - another birthday present (from their own farm, there will be a sheep hopping around over there now).
It is in the oven now, with branches of mint from the garden and two bulbs of garlic.
