How was your weekend. Probably not quite as exciting as mine I am thinking. Things are getting ridiculous now people, it has officially been 2 months since I have been to town. I mean, that is just not cricket is it…. ???
And now that I am chained to the station kitchen, things may not improve. Send help. Fast.
We said goodbye to our cook on Saturday, it was a short but happy friendship and unfortunately cooking just wasn’t for her. I get it. So I have decided (yes, you read correctly – decided) that I will be the cook. Ok, all of my outback friends, stop rolling your eyes in disbelief, it will be ok, I am at peace with this decision. I just don’t have it in me to go on the hunt for a new cook. Our cook of 6 years – Aileen (who left last year) – has ruined me. No one is going to stack up! That lady taught me everything I know (oh and Mrs Rumbo….she definitely taught me how to make gravy for a crowd), so I figure I can do this, I will just channel my inner Aileen and get on with things. I started my new career on Saturday, so far so good. So, if you will, follow along and discover life in an outback kitchen. The stories, the lives, the triumphs, the people, the food, the recipes… good lord, it sounds like a soapie doesn’t it. Would you like to come along for the ride? I already have a 4 week meal plan, printed out on a spreadsheet…I have this people. Just don’t muck with my plan, it won’t be pretty.
Check out our new set of wheels….our little “run around”…. I am loving myself sick in this little buggy, or as I like to call it “the resort wagon”….. every time I get in it I feel like I am being taken to my room at a 5 star resort….reminds me of the Hyatt Regency Coolum before Clive Palmer ruined it. Here, look, isn’t she a beauty:
And a few more photos from the weekend…sorry I am really scraping the bottom of the barrel here….
Here is Tom’s horse – Mojo…. he has just come in from the paddock. Needs some new Jimmy Choo’s before Tom can go for a ride.
Wish me luck in my new role…. Kitchen Manager. Today is sorted: Pizza for morning smoko and then roast beef and vegetables & chocolate pudding for dinner.
How was your weekend? Hopefully a little more exciting than mine. Been to town lately? I can’t even remember what town is. Have a great week guys.
