The South Australian Heritage Icon - the Balfours frog cake.
I just drooled on my keyboard!
Personally, I think the green ones are the best and would never say no to the pink ones, but I'm not such a fan of the chocolate ones.

At uni, I would be struck down with the biggest cravings and we would have to do frog cake runs - which is not the easiest thing to do as I'm pretty sure they are only made once a week and not all delis stock them, so it was sometimes a hit and miss affair.
These gorgeous paintings by Dianne Gall would solve my craving problem forever, in fact I think I would be on a permanent sugar high. If they were still available for sale, I would so be breaking into my piggy bank right now.
that's my kind of breakfast

I was at my folks' house the other day and came across this picture of a cake I made for my mum for mother's day when I was about 13.
I was so darn proud of it at the time, but now a look at it and think it would be perfect for the blog my brother recommended I peruse...
Speaks for itself really
An extremely Curious George

I don't shrink stuff and colours rarely run, but I often forget to check pockets. I now have numerous tops that have holes in them from when there have been screws and nails hidden in a pair of work trousers.
So, I keep my eye out for cute badges and brooches to cover them. At the moment, I like rosettes.
I feel like the love child of a three way between Lisa Rinna, Meg Ryan and Nikki Cox.
Meanwhile this photo does not do justice to the weirdness that is Meg Ryan's new lips - I went to see The Women with Kimberlee and our friend Bec and I couldn't concentrate when she was on screen. I just kept staring at that mouth.

It was about a group of teenage girls in Sydney who were sunbaking with their mobile phone numbers in zinc across their back.
Line of the week…
“At least they were responsible enough to wear sunscreen; they’re Slip Slop Slappers.”
Speaking of slappers and those who deserve gold, pick up line of the week goes to my friend Jemima*
Jemima: You're very cute
Random Boy at the pub: Why thank you. Can I buy you a drink?
J: Certainly, I'll have the most expensive cocktail on the list thanks
RB: Sure....So, what are you doing after here?
J: I'm not sure, but I can tell you that you may have a chance of coming back to my place
RB: Sounds good!
J: But first, I think we need to pash so I see if you're a good kisser, and only THEN will I decide if you can come home with me or not. Ok?
Later - (J and RB - pashing in the corner of a pub behind a curtain).
PS. He wasn’t good enough

We actually got 10 of these in a dive over Christmas. They look awful, but are delicious when tenderised and done on the barbie in butter and garlic. Its was real treat as they are getting fished out in the waters at Yorkes because there is such high demand for them in asian markets.
FYI, no purse was actually borne of this underwater adventure. I think the shells got turned into ashtrays.

Here are some that I am just loving at the moment
Mmmm, I am soothed.
