Weekend

Monday, January 23, 2012

Dear Olive,
We had a great weekend. Although, thinking back on it, I can't really remember what we did! There was a lot of food. And there was a lot of tennis. Usually together. I cooked a really yummy chicken and sweet potato curry* with cucumber relish for a friend** who came over to watch the tennis on Friday night (recipe here). Saturday, a friend dropped off two fish he'd just caught. Caught! We made two more delicious meals out of them and gobbled them down. Although, that was Shane and I. You ate a lot of eggs, served every which way, and you listened to your Holly Throsby record. A lot. (To say you're obsessed is an understatement.) Also, where's your mullet gone? It's morphed into a rats tail. I think you've been twisting it up and pulling it out, which is a bit of a worry.








*I've made it before and this time I tweaked it with more curry, less liquid. It's really fragrant and totally yum.
**This talented lady. I visited her studio on Sunday - it's all very exciting, she's having an exhibition soon. Info to come!

Ooh that Holly Throsby CD looks great. Kids CDs get so boring don't they?!
I love the way you write this blog, Olive will have a magical time reading it all one day.

Love the mullet/rats tail! Seems to totally suit Olives personality xxx

Please please please can I have the curry recipe? That fish looks amazing and oh so fresh. If you can't have a mullet then a rat's tail is the next best thing! Who needs a hairdresser, right? I'm going to check out that CD as well. Kimya Dawson's Alphabutt is also unreal. xx

Mullets/rat tails + baby = cute
