well, i'm currently in Armidale, NSW, and enjoying the warm winter sun and beautiful landscape surrounding me. it's a pleasure to see a country town, because it is so far different from the coast - smaller, quainter and friendlier. the architecture is stunning, and i never get bored of it. i do however miss the warmth of the coast... for those of you who think that Oz never gets cold, well, think again - it gets very cold here!
now, onto more foodie related things... a few people have requested the celery flax bread recipe i spoke of a few posts ago - and i'm finally getting round to posting it on my blog:
♥ this recipe makes pizza base, crackers, wraps and bread - all depending on how long you dehydrate it for, and in what shape and thickness you create it.
celery flax bread recipe:
1 cup diced celery
½ an onion, diced
½ cup ground flaxseed
1 ½ Tbsp olive oil
½ Tbsp dried oregano
¾ cup water
a little salt and pepper
1. place all the ingredients in a blender, and mix until thoroughly combined.
2. spread the mixture out on greaseproof paper in circles or large rectangles, and dehydrate for 4-6 hours, cut into triangles and dehydrate again for a few hours until crisp for crackers, or leave just once for pizza base or wraps.
notes: i dehydrated mine in the oven with the door ajar, as i don't have a proper dehydrator. you can of course just bake it quickly with the door shut, and it'll probably be done incredibly quickly!
now onto some recent down under sights:
♥ wottle - an australian icon. and very beautiful!
♥ white chocolate and raspberry torte - i was given this for tea at my cousin's house. it was baked by her lodger, a young uni student, and it was perfection!!
♥ dangar falls - a very long thin waterfall out in the bush... we saw kangaroos up close in the wild, and they hopped up to us as we lit our evening bbq!
currently reading: tilly trotter omnibus - my nickname used to be tilly trotter, but i've not read the book until now... i saw it on the shelf in the house i'm currently staying in, and i've not been able to put it down since (save to write this blog post!)
