Timely superior drying conditions here today. Warm and windy. Just as well because with all the visitors we have had – the sheets and towels are out of control.
I’m still walking this week. 10,000 steps every day has been a challenge I can tell you. Especially when you are stuck inside a conference room for 2 days. I have been using an app to track my movements because my pedometer was a bit dodgy. It’s called MOVE – it’s free to download and is great. You can get your movements in mins or km’s – and changes to running or transport too. Worth a look if you are that way inclined. You can sponsor the team here if you’re that way inclined too!
Roberto whipped up a wonton noodle soup last night that was something else. I had a few requests for the recipe so I thought I’d fill you in. It’s kind of like my chicken noodle soup, but not really. More like my minced asian chicken. But not really. Let’s just call it:
Bert’s wonton soup
: Frozen wontons (we get them from Harris Farm freezer section just near the ice cream)
: 1 litre chicken stock
: Garlic, ginger, dried chilli flakes
: Oyster sauce, sesame oil, palm sugar, fish sauce & soy sauce
: Mint & coriander & shallots
: Whack the stock all the sauces, garlic, ginger & chilli into a large saucepan and bring to the boil
: Throw in the wonton’s and simmer for 5 mins or so until cooked
: Chop the herbs & shallots and throw in at the last minute just before serving
It’s very good indeed. Delicious in fact.
Life seems very busy at the moment, very busy indeed. I’m not sure it will slow down either. Thank goodness for a long weekend next weekend right? Except that it means Easter. And visitors. Not much planned for the weekend though – THAT makes me happy.

Are you a good sleeper?
