Bendo Weekend Lasagne

It all started with a very serious manly meeting...

Then we had some fun making friends with the birds.

Even sharing bird friends.

Then the Lasagne Making started.
We grilled all the vegies on the fire and layered them with tomato sauce with mushrooms and white sauce with nutmeg. Haloumi was the key ingredient on the vegetarian agne. For the Bolognese agne Hash cooked up an amazingly rich mince sauce and we layered this with some pumpkin as well and lots of mozzarella.

And unleash the monster

Oh yes. That's nice.
Wine goes well.

Then we played some poker and guess who won?

The next morning we had tea for breakfast. We were STILL FULL.
Hash instructed us in the art of archery.

Manuke was very happy.

 Later the next day we were hungry again and Luke made us pancakes.

Then we said goodbye to the birds, till next time.

Squirrely Acorn Night

Al, with his amazing Acorn creations.
He invited us to a squirrelly munchies night. On the Menu was acorn, quinoa and Kale patties, acorn mayonnaise and a salad with Al's vegies. Plus dessert...

The acorns after they have been treated (soaking and rinsing for a couple of weeks)

It wouldn't be Al's without a nice big massive pot full of chai.

This was one of the best cakes I have ever eaten. Acorn cake!
It was golden and caramel flavoured with a crunchy outer layer and a chewy moreish middle.

There were even some bigger bits of acorn that were nice to chew in the cake.
Jules, Luke and I loved it, thanks Al!

I had to take a photo of his organised kitchen...a joy to bake in :)
