Last weekend Hook had to get a few bits of footage to compare his Blackmagic Cinema Camera and Blackmagic Pocket Camera so we headed out to Devonport to get some cool views of the city for them. The evening sun was gorgeous so I took a few snaps while he was setting up. The views were amazing. We don’t often venture over there, as we actually live right in the city – kinda behind those big crane-y giraffe looking things (I have no idea what these things are called haha) at the port to the left in that last photo. So it was nice to see the city from this angle. I love this place.
I’m such a HUGE lemon fan. It’s ridiculous. When at a restaurant ordering dessert, it’s always something lemony that I look for. Lemon meringue pie on the menu? SOLD. And when it comes to baking, same goes. The easier the recipe, the better. I’m not a big fan of having to do things on the stove with baking, so anything that just involves mixing ingredients and away you go is what I like. Which is exactly why I loved baking this slice.
You can find the recipe over on Kirsten’s blog High Tea With Dragons. The only thing I changed with this recipe is I added another tablespoon of lemon rind (because I’m lemon obsessed) and I also added a little bit of golden yellow colouring gel to give it more of a yellow look. I like my lemon baking to be lemon coloured hehe.
I kept mine in the fridge and it tastes so good straight out of there. I ate my last slice of it today. So I may need to go get more lemons and make some more because this slice is SO good. Bonus for me: Hook isn’t a fan of lemon stuff at all which means when I bake it I get to eat it all myself! :P
Miss that little face. Such a roller-coaster of emotions from her. Within seconds she can go from all smiles and giggles, to tears and confusion. Miss little wobbly pants. We probably all bombard her with cameras too much haha. She will have to get used to it! ;)
These were a few shots I got of Cam having a bit of cuddle time with Rosie before he left to move overseas. She is going to be so much bigger when he sees her again in person! She’s already standing up a lot now, and being very vocal. Just need to get her to say ‘da-nelle’ now. Shouldn’t be that hard right? She’s already got ‘da’ down from saying ‘dada’ I would assume, so hopefully it’s easy for her. :P
Anyway, just wanted you all to see a bit more of sweet Rosie (for any new followers, Rosie is my little sister). As I noticed this blog seemed to have a lot of baking on it haha. Must mix it up a little. Dogs, babies, baking, and repeat!
It feels like it’s been a long time since I’ve had a weekend that wasn’t insanely busy with work things, wasn’t sick or wasn’t so boring I just watched TV shows the whole weekend. This one has been a great mix. I took my camera out with me yesterday all day – lugged that Canon 5D MKiii and 85mm 1.2 lens around the whole time which are crazy heavy – and I didn’t take a single photo. Hahaha. Doh!
It was a great day though. Caught up with a high school friend who has been living in the same city as me for ages now and I barely see her! So definitely will be making a huge effort to see her more often. We enjoyed a yummy lunch at Tyler Street Garage, followed by some gift shopping and a coffee and lemon tart slice at Mezze before heading home to look through old photos and notes we gave each other in high school. So much reminiscing!
And today has been spent having lunch out at Mink Cafe with Hook and a little shopping/organising, whilst doing some vague business brainstorming. So much to do before summer hits. So many plans and ideas! Gotta knuckle down and get them all sorted and planned out!
The weekend isn’t over yet, and maybe I’ll still get some photos before the day is out. Fingers crossed!
