Bondi Farmer’s Market and Getting My Cooking on in the Kitchen

The response from yesterday’s post has been great and it has inspired me to get back on the blog wagon for another ride around the yard. Today’s post will be a reprieve from the deep thoughts of yesterday. A little light piece focussing on one of my loves and my stress release, cooking.

After another holiday season of over indulgence, I have been searching for a positive to come out of ย the few pounds I’ve added to the stomach. Below is a collection of food photos that I snapped over the last month. Looking back over these photos, the reason behind these extra pounds has become clear.

As time passes, my preference of food swings between one cuisine to the next. The latest favourite has been Mexican. Inspired by the time I spent in the beautiful country and my Mexican friends, I usually reserve Friday nights for whipping up a Mexican feast. Friday seems a good day for cooking Mexican. There is something extremely satisfying about cooking pulled pork tacos with homemade salsa and grilled pineapple while winding down from the working week with a few beers.

Happy Friday. Prawn Tacos.

Pizza is another one that seems to pop up more often than others. I visited the Farmer’s Markets at Bondi last weekend with some friends and bought some greens, fresh rocket and heirloom tomatoes. The finished products not only tasted great, it was even better knowing that what I am eating has only travelled a small distance from the field to my plate.
