JaM-Garden and Food

JaM-Taking Just a Moment to gather & share the things you have noticed, consumed, created&/or bought during your week.

Typical Spring weather is happening here, with beautiful sunny days where you can finally go out and mow the lawn.  Just as you finish you look over there and the sky is suddenly getting dark.

The heavy shower is over before you know it and everything is wet again. I have been swapping plants with a friend this week and have four Buddleias to plant when I can find a spot to put them. 

The weekend was all about food.. My daughter came home and cooked me an amazing Birthday feast. First there was a pre dinner plate of cheeses, sun dried tomatoes, strawberries and dip along with an excellent bottle of wine.

Dinner was amazing with lots of new flavours to be consumed.  A green curry, stir fried vegies and noodles and so much more.

Beau contributed the caramel/chocolate mudcake which was very, very nice!
Come and share your moments with us at Jody's.

Having a birthday dinner cooked & presented so beautifully by one of my children would be all the birthday I'd have needed...very special.

Thanks for joining in JaM this week.

PS so so happy to be able to leave a comment without the cryptic word thing that a lot of the blogs have, I'm either blind or just plain dumb because no matter what letters I put in they are always wrong even when they are correct, grrrr so frustrating, just saying :o) ha ha
