Fresh strawberries and lemon lamingtons. What a yummy morning tea. I didn't make the lamingtons, in fact I had never even heard of lemon lamingtons. I found them on the supermarket shelf and couldn't resist the pretty yellowyness. They tasted pretty good too.
Not that I should be indulging in any treats today. Yesterday we went to Euro-fest and stuffed ourselves silly on all kinds of delicious Euro delights. Mr Big went overboard at the Peruvian food stall buying a taster dish of almost everything they had on offer. I am a sucker for a good sausage. My mother is Austrian and I grew up on her wonderful tasty home cooking. So I couldn't resist getting both a bratwurst and a weisswurst yersterday, they came on plates piled high with extras like potato salad and sauerkraut. Yum yum. Of course they were to share with the kiddies. And then Lottie spotted the calamari stand and had to have some 'rings' as she calls them. So that meant yet another plate, this time a combo plate of marinated and grilled octopus salad and salt and pepper calamari.
Follow all that with some of the yummy tiny dutch pancakes, which I cannot for the life of me remember how to say let alone spell, and there were some very full tummies yesterday afternoon. It didn't stop the kids from bouncing away on the jumping castle or wanting an icecream as we were leaving. Honestly some days I cannot get my children to eat a thing and others I could swear they were hollow.
We will definitely go again next year, and try and be more prepared with sunscreen and hats, and also take the camera, which I realised had run out of batteries as we were about to leave the house yesterday.
