• From Mud to Mouth – Silverbeet and Goats Cheese Frittata

    Here we go with the inaugural From Mud to Mouth Post. I feel very comfortable talking about food and engaging with other peoples taste buds.

  • The Stupid Market

    I seem to spend a disproportionate amount of my dad days trudging around supermarkets. Not content with an excruciating morning trudge around the aisles I will manage to forget something vital and guarantee myself an afternoon trudge too.
