These red curry prawns are pretty tasty. This dish was so quick and easy to make and so filling.

I’ve enjoyed a pretty filling food day.

For breakfast I went to SPACE Kitchen in Woden.

I had the Space Benedict which consisted of two poached eggs with a beetroot reduction Hollandaise sauce and a pulled pork croquette.

I also enjoyed an Oreo peppermint milkshake. The crumbed Oreo was fine enough to come up the straw. It was really good.


After breakfast I went for a walk around Lake Ginninderra.
