Why I Like Going To The Markets

The fruit and veg are really cheap and fresh compared to the supermarkets, and even the fruit shops.
I bought
- potatoes, washed, at $1 per kg
- peaches at $3 per kg
- nectarines at $3 per kg
- cherries at $10 per kg
- apples at $1.50 per kg
- asparagus at $1 per bunch

There was a lot more cheap stuff there but this was all that I came for (well some of it wasn't on my to buy list but was too cheap to pass up on)

There is variety, more then the shops and everyone is competing with the other person so prices are kept down low.

Plus there is more then just fruit and veg so there can be plenty of browsing happening, which makes it interesting for the kids too (but we steer clear of the take your money to bounce on the sun heated, too hot to touch, bouncy castles)


I hate writing titles as they never seem to fit.
Now times for some updates.

I am still continuing to try new and interesting recipes and making notes on what I am cooking, the changes I make and what it would go well with in preparation for e-courses. E-courses though have been a little slow this year though last year's content still seems to be of interest. I will continue with this as who know s where the future might lead.

Smaug & Sloth (bearded dragons)
They seem to be growing well though Smaug still has his problems. Lately he has been seen to be shaking and with bad eye to mouth co-ordination so I swapped him to a different enclosure with a different light. Since going into this enclosure, he has brightened up in colour, as has sloth, become a happier dragon with a better appetite. Sloth, is still going great though and I have no problems with her except that she doesn't like to eat in front of people.

Central Netted Dragons
Well they are a little fat but that will work well with the coming cool months when they should hibernate or at least become less active. Sleepy is growing well and looks like his dad (small boss). He still has sight difficulties but it doesn't stop him from doing anything either. The only thing that makes me think, is if it is a male or female!



My new favourite cheese is mozzarella. I wouldn't mind trying the stuff made out of buffalo milk. Apparently it is said to be the best. The stuff made out of cows milk was pretty good though. The fresh stuff not the stuff in plastic bags.

Insalata Caprese - tomato and mozzarella salad...yum!
