Two way conversations coming right up

For the longest time I considered moving this blog to Wordpress because I wanted to be able to reply to people's comments.

I never got around to it because I'm still more partial to Blogger, and then they finally brought in a reply option and I still didn't use it.

Well now I have, if you left a comment on yesterday's post then I've replied. So many times people have asked a question in the comments section and I've wanted to respond, well now I can. So there's an incentive to leave a comment (even if you don't normally) just so I can at least say hi.

Most nights as I write my posts, I have the television on in the lounge room and I sit on the lounge with my laptop on my lap. I'm not a big TV viewer but it's background noise and sometime I catch parts of shows which I wouldn't specifically sit down to watch. Reading and writing are much higher up on my list of priorities.

We have a television show called My Kitchen Rules which is on most week nights - tonight they have two young bachelor guys cooking. Amazing food cooked tonight and by amateur cooks, young lads even - absolutely spectacular.

For my non - Aussie readers, each pair on the show have to cook a three course meal of their choice and are then critiqued by 10 fellow contestants who come to a 'dinner party' - these guys scored 95 out of a possible 100. This is the highest score ever on this show.

I don't get too excited by food or recipes, but check this out - this is what they cooked

Entree - Trio of seafood
Main - Signature roast (3 roast meats in one)
Dessert - Gateau Opera

Tonight I stuffed up mashed potatoes, not sure where it went wrong. Gees I never mess up mashed potatoes, but I did tonight. These guys make me want to bury my head in a pillow.

Well youngest son had a great first day at his new school, the permanent grin on his face is a small indication.

Hope you've got plenty of reasons to smile

Cheers, Fi

  1. Sounds kinda like Chopped here in the US. Love cooking shows. Fi, I mess up mashed pots sometimes too, dont feel bad. LOL. I can never get them the right consistency...They are either way too think or too wet. So glad your son had a great first day at his new school. How exciting for him!

    1. Jenn - mashed potatoes should be the easiest thing in the world though - right? My hubby is a BIG fan of cooking shows, me not so much usually

  2. I have the same habit as you, I'm also on the lounge with my laptop right now ;)
    I like the new reply option on Blogger, but must admit that in practice I often forget about it lol. Guess I still have to get used to it!

    1. Cessie, here's me making sure I reply to all comments :-) Thanks for dropping by and I checked out your snow pics as well, very nice

  3. LOL -- I always mess up mashed potatoes! Mostly so that no one asks me to make them!

    Congrats on son and school. yeah!

    1. I think hubby will be making mashed potatoes in future, boys can be such babies sometimes - LOL


Everyone has something valuable to say and I would love for you to share your thoughts
