This week in food and photos

Thanks for visiting. Please check out the rest of Yummy Lummy. I’d love it if you shared this site with your friends.

It feels like it has been a long week. Last week  and the week before were relatively short in the sense I was travelling for work.

It was also a big week in other respects. I attended a dinner to farewell a very senior colleague and the same night the mighty Queensland XXXX Maroons defeated the New South Wales cockroaches in the second game of this years State of Origin series. Given Queensland won the first game this means another series victory for the Maroons and this time on home soil at Lang Park. It was hard not to wear a smile on my face for days. I’m still smiling.

I’m very grateful to my friends and family who kept me updated via text messages throughout the evening.

I also voted yesterday. The election is next week but I thought I’d get it over a week early to avoid the crowds and queues. The only thing I missed out on was a sausage sizzle and cake stall. I enjoy voting. I take my time and ensure I mark every box, I don’t just mark the easy options along party lines.
