dinner..........

Not long after I put up the last post I found myself madly helping to shed the sheep we need to shear...........I was a "drowned rat" by the time we finished but most of the sheep were pretty dry and will be right for shearing...........wet sheep can take a while to dry out and the shears are already quite behind with all the rain this year...........all this before breakfast.............
Also as it was raining again when we should have headed into town for the ANZAC day march - we didn't head in......I got the kids to watch some of the Sydney march and Anzac Cove ceremony...
...the weather has cooled down quite a bit tonight so I pulled the crock pot out and put on a casserole........
you can see why I am sitting on the lounge at home "WATCHING" MasterChef..............lol........I would not win any prizes for my presentation.........'slops on plate'....'lacks colour'.....'I would not serve that up in my restaurant'..........lol......but hey this is my kitchen and I know I am on a winner on a cool day for my family.............they LOVE this one.......good beef casserole with whatever I have thrown into the pot..........
and to top it off a fresh loaf of bread .............bookworm had been requesting a 'fancy loaf' 
I wished we had smelly internet.............
Catch you later...........

  1. I was just watching Masterchief too and I can see what you mean but I can vouch for any of your meals tasting beautiful. I say start a restaurant using camp ovens and I would eat there all the time. Now I might go and find something for crockpot dinner tomorrow night.:)

  12. We need sheep breeders , and of course the shearers have to be fed and I bet your shearers get a good whoesome meal as well. Your family meal looks just like mine , Scrumptious, better than lacks colour.
