    Where do you buy your wine?

    We're surrounded by wine farms so every now and again we'll do a "wine trip" and stock up - unfortunately it never lasts long:rolleyes:. If I quickly need to buy a bottle I'll buy at the supermarket - they tend to have more specials than the liquor stores.

    What's for Dinner, Friday, Jan. 2nd, 2009!

    Happy New Year all ! DH brought home some sushi for a starter and we'll probably have some of last nights barbequed venison with pasta for dinner. Although it's once again a beautiful summer evening outside so we might just barbeque - AGAIN !

    Going to a grocery store while on vacation

    That was one of the highlights of our trips to Thailand and Bali. They had vacuum packed products in their frozen seafood section that we could not figure out what it was (all writing on the packaging was in Thai/Indonesian) And of course the exotic fruits were out of this world ! Only downside...

    Where to go on vacation?

    I loved Thailand and Bali and it was so affordable (even for us South Africans with our less than great rand dollar exchange rate)

    Your Christmas menu

    We're going to my sister's for Christmas lunch. It's summer here so we're doing cold food. I'll be making seafood appetizers - thinking of mini fish kebabs with a ginger avo relish, tiny calamari tubes stuffed with prawns&mushrooms and mini seafood quiches. She's doing the meat(probably gammon...

    I'll never buy tortillas again

    Never been to Mazunte but if they stock things like tortilla presses I'll definitely have to pop in next time I'm in the area !

    Instant coffee?

    I usually drink instant coffee - we never seem to have the time to make "real" coffee - but I don't really mind - we usually buy the Douw Egbert(Dutch) or Jacobs(German) brands which I really like. Most people I know just drink instant during the week - was quiet surprised when I read this...

    ISO German recipes

    Thanks all - realized I'm not going to have as much time as I thought so I cheated and went to the German deli - bought rye bread and smoked teewurst pate to start with, spatzle - which even if I had the time I don't think I would ever attempt to make - looks way to complicated, potato kartoffel...

    Should cooking be considered a chore, if you enjoy it ??

    I don't consider cooking a chore as I never do it if I don't feel like it. If I don't feel like cooking or don't have the time DH will cook or most likely barbeque and if not we'll end up having Marmite on toast or something (of course it helps not having kids :-)

    ISO German recipes

    I'm doing a German menu for DH for date night tomorrow evening. Thinking of doing a German sausage casserole, potato salad and maybe German style green beans. Anyone got any great German ideas/recipes for me ?

    What would you be if you had your druthers...

    I was in the IT industry(in sales) for 13 years and I'm SO glad I'm out of it:smile: Quite a few of my friends and DH is still in the industry and whenever they start talking shop I'm even more glad - even though I'm MUCH poorer now:lol:
