I’m back! It was an extraordinarily long flight home with a nice little 3 hour detour via Noumea thanks to the fog in Brisbane but we’re home. We had a fantastically wonderful time but I have to say, it’s good to be back. It’s always nice to come home. I miss my creature comforts. Let me sum it up for you… I already have a batch of Kevin dough rising on the bench.
I’ll tell you all about the trip soon, like the best cupcake I ate and the Mexican restaurant that served such tasty food we went back a second time. Don’t let me forget to mention the copious slices of pizza I consumed or the kilometers we walked (which was good to cancel out the eating). I would love to say it’s back to regular programming here from now on but I’m not sure I can get right back into it just yet.
This Thursday is moving day so it’s a bit hectic plus my 4.30am wake up thanks to good old jet lag has be a bit fuzzy in the head.
I do have a couple of treats that I made before we left to share with you and today’s has me wishing I had all the ingredients to whip up a batch right now. I don’t think I’d ever combined hazelnut and orange together before but let me tell you, these guys get on well. The light and fluffy icing sandwiches the melt-in-your-mouth shortbread in just the right ratio.
I served mine as a little after lunch treat the day I made roast chicken in the slow cooker. My polite friend only had one. I had two and may have had another couple after she left so I didn’t look like a piggy. Enjoy!
