A Few Fast Weeks

Been a busy few weeks. I went to Houston last week for a business trip. Was lucky enough to be there for an Office Team night. We all got to go and have an evening doing/undertaking a cooking course. We cooked (with help from three chefs) a three course meal. Was excellent, leak and salmon soup, stir fried prawns and then a beautiful poached fish and potato dish topped off with caramelised pears and sauce. No complaints about Houston...

Wanna meanwhile went off to a couple of staff parties of her own and judging by her photos seems to have had a really great time. Tells the ‘slight’ hangover added to the story to assure her it was worth the effort.

Finally after all that we bottled out first home brew beer last night. Neither of us are drinking much at all but the few times we have a beer it is normally at home. Drinking and driving is not worth the risk in Australia. Added to which it’s expensive and makes getting up in a morning hard work. Both hassles I can do without.

So possibly this is my last post before Christmas. Off to Thailand on Friday. Might add something while I’m over there. We’ll see time goes.
Have a wonderful Christmas and I look forward to you joining me on my journeys next year.
