#marchfoodphotos: March 2013 Foodie Photo-A-Day Challenge!

things we’re loving right now

  •  Amisfield Pinot Noir  … it goes down a real treat.  The other night I had it with stuffed quail, prosciutto and green beans.     •  Yoga.  It really does make you feel like everything will be okay. • Smash on Fox 8 … there is a reason to stay in on a Saturday night!! • Brisbane in winter.  We may not have ski slopes, but there is definitely something to be said for beautiful sunshine in the cooler months! • Chilli infused pistachio biscuits     pasta al pistacchio infused with chilli   Namaste.
