Wet weekend with a taste of the Mediterranean

Yet another wet weekend here in Brisbane. Luckily, there was a break in the weather early Saturday that lasted long enough for a walk along the local creek with Onslow and Miss B.

By the time we got home, it had really started to settle in.

I thought I'd get some cooking done and whipped up a quick batch of pumpkin soup, but got a little side-tracked and spent the afternoon curled up on the couch reading some favorite cooking magazines. Both Delicious and Gourmet Traveller have Italian editions out for May, so I found lots of inspiration for future projects.

Today I continued the Mediterranean food theme by heading along to Paniyeri, Brisbane's Greek Festival. This year marked its 35th anniversary. We were lucky again with the weather and despite being a bit soggy underfoot, there was a good crowd.  It is a fabulous day out with entertainment, lectures and over 30 stalls showcasing the best of Greek cuisine. I sampled the souvlaki, haloumi, spanakopita, baby octopus and stuffed capsicum. All were wonderful and there were enough honey puffs in one large serve to share with all my new found friends at our table.
