A weekend eating adventure in Brisbane

Some might say every weekend is an eating adventure for me

I spent the weekend in Brisbane to visit my parents and daughters. This week Miss13 becomes Miss14!


Saturday morning we enjoyed breakfast at Groove Train Chermside. I enjoyed the granola.

For lunch Miss19 and I made Mum and Dad a simple salad for lunch.

I taught Miss19 how to extract Pomegranate arils

For dinner we celebrated soon to be Miss14’s birthday at Hog’s breath cafe. I had a lite cut prime rib with avocado and a side of calamari to enjoy a surf and turf or reef and beef meal

After the main meal we came home and enjoyed Mum’s beetroot chocolate cake. Yes this was made with a large tin of beetroot. No taste of vinegar or beetroot at all.

  1. Certainly a day of eating, Gary. So much food, so much good food. Don’t know where you have room to put it all. If I had that prime rib and calamri dish for lunch, I don’t think I would be able to eat dinner at all. Very good photos as usual, always make my water 🙂

    1. Thank you Mabel. I spaced it out over a couple of days which helped. I’m gradually gaining weight against my will. I will need to act soon 😀

    1. Hehe, fruit is such an unusual choice for me especially as my three daughters were enjoying waffles, ice cream, bacon, eggs, maple syrup and all that really good stuff 😀
