A Big Long Slow Day at Home

It's one of those days that somehow manage to slip by without you getting much done. A bit of laundry, a few emails, website front page nearly finised.

Lots of Dancing - we have the new R&B CD on random shuffle with Tschaikovsky, White Stripe, Manic Street Preachers and a Triple J Hottest 100 CD, so we are getting an eclectic mix today! Amy like the R&B and the classical - they are the best for dancing. I really should get up and dance with them, but Sunday is my day off.

I finally hauled our bums out the door at 3, to do some shopping. I forgot that Kanji works at the Kakize Stand on Sundays now; if I had remembered, I'd have grabbed some books, the laptop, and spent the whole day thereso the kids could have some time with their Daddy.

We were only there for about an hour though, and I had a double tantrum on my hands when it came time to leave. But Dad go home in time to put them to bed, then we cooked some interesting new recipes we saw in a magazine: A no-carb pizza (arrange a circle of thinly sliced pork (or bacon) on tin foil, top with pizza sauce, cheese, anchovies and broccoli (or whatever) and bake) and even better, pork rolls - thinly sliced pork wrapped around 'nira' (a kind of grass) mung beans and carrot sticks. The best part was the sauce - 1&1/2 Tablespoons of soy sauce, about 1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic (to taste) and about 1/4 teaspoon of 'toubanjan' a hot Chinese chilli sauce. You dip the pork rolls and barbecued vegetables (lotus root, eggplant and capsicum) into the sauce before eating. YUM
