Fiji in Food

I shared my sunsets of Fiji before and looking through my photos I thought a journey of food was worth sharing.

I, like most people I know, love great food. The taste, the smell and the look. I am all for trying something new and testing my tastebuds. Especially so on holiday when you are already out of your comfort zone and you don't have to cook!

Here are some of the food highlights from my trip. (Apologies in advance for some of the lighting in the shots. All my own, sometimes poor, photography.)

Seafood Laksa - Fiji Style

Apple Tart with Vanilla Icecream

Indian Buffet

Vegetarian Pizza

Tapas (from left) - Lamb and Mint rolls, Spinach and Fetta pastries & Fishacakes with homemade chilli sauce

Tapas - Sweet Chilli Prawns

Basil & Fetta Risotto - Tapas Style

Chicken Burger

Salmon Fillet with Balsamic Glaze and Noodles

And I had plenty of fresh fruit for breakfast.

While I never left the resort the whole time I was there, I did not suffer at all in the food stakes with 5 options for restaurants/menus for dinner each night and an amazing breakfast buffet. I certainly didn't go hungry or ending up eating the same meal more than once. Didn't help me lose any weight but did keep me happy.

Thoughts and Feelings

Hi all,

It's such a great feeling to know that I have a place to to put my thoughts. Whether anyone reads them, or takes them on board, isn't really the point. It's about a safe place to download and share. The good, the bad, the exciting and the ugly.

While those close to me will know that the last 12 months have been tough and the last 6 more so, others will probably not have noticed a change in the business as usual version of me.  (aside from a lack of posting anything). Up until recently, I prided myself on that. On projecting that veneer to the world that everything is ok. But honestly inside I am sad. And it made me realise that we put on this veneer, this mask as if being the real version of ourselves would not be liked and accepted. That people would shun us and think less of us for showing our really feelings and our real lives.

In this day of social media and the desire to share the best bits of our lives with everyone (those we know and those we don't), have w…

Crushing on....

Do you ever get so obsessed with something that it's all you can think about? For an example a song, a dress, a culture or a food. I do. A lot. So I thought to help my obsession or to maybe even get me over my current obsessions I thought I would share them.

Food - Avocado and Feta Mash. Simple and oh so tasty. Just mash an avocado together with crumbled feta  Serve on toast, with tortilla chips, as a dish with poached eggs. Almost anywhere. Try adding extras like lemon juice, chopped tomatoes or fresh herbs. If you are in Melbourne head to Moulin Noir in Port Melbourne who do a mean version.Movie - So I am going to cheat here and go with a franchise of AMAZING movies. Fast & The Furious. Absolutely obsessed with these. and there is a new one out, Fast & Furious 6. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker,  fast cars and non stop action. Do I need to say more? Looking forward to seeing it this weekSong - Oh so hard to pick one but going with my movie theme it would have to be We Own It by 2…
