WeEkEnd HapPenings

Ive had a great weekend.  Not so crafty.  But lots of catching up with friends with dancing, drinking and heaps of laughs thrown in.  What more can a girl ask for. 
A lovely friend celebrated his 30th birthday this weekend.  What a great party, everyone had their dancing shoes on, sensational band playing and I do believe everyone had a great night.  Well I certainly did anyway ;).  So thank you for your hospitality, I enjoyed seeing you in your world, with your loved ones. x x x

I'd like to say that I fully support the legalisation of same sex marriage.  I'm looking forward to a time when I can attend friends weddings regardless of their choice in partner and celebrate their love for one another and their commitment.  Real Simple.  If only our leaders could stop debating and recognise the shift in our society and embrace this civil liberty for all.  Bring it on.

I did mention that I would be cooking this weekend.  Well another friend set me up with a menu plan for a week.  (thanks Wendy)  So dinner tonight was stuffed eggplant.  Yum.  This was delish.

And I've got enough left for tomorrow night.  I have a late night at uni so this will be great.  And it isn't heavy either.  It is supposed to have rice in it.  But I forgot to get some.  So this one is just Tuna & Veg.  Very tasty and quick to pull it all together and pop it in the oven.

And this is my flummery.  It is so lovely and fluffy.  Not too sweet at all.

4 - 5 ingredients Easy peasy no stress dessert.
1 can carnation milk
jelly - green obviously
1 cup water for the jelly
1 peppermint crisp broken up

Make sure the carnation milk has been chilling overnight if possibly.  Make your jelly up.  Chill it but don't let it start to set.  Mine had started to set so I was whisking it.

Beat the carnation milk.  It will basically double, add the jelly then spoon through the peppermint crisp.  I added in a couple of drops of vanilla essence.  But not necessary.

Did I mention it is lovely.  Light, fluffy and chocolate through it.

So there we have it.
No crafting.  Heaps of fun, good friends and good food. 

Lets see where this week takes me.  :)
