Market Day

I was feeling much better today, so i took the kids and mum and dad out for a quick breakfast, before going to the wonderful gourmet food market that is the Boatshed in Cottesloe. This is my one stop shop for any gourmet or organic food item i need - everything is beautifully presented and reasonably priced. Today i needed to get a few staple things that i like to have in the pantry to really kick up my food a notch. Today i got some beautiful spanish sherry vinegar, some great local australian red wine vinegar, and some south australian verjuice. For those of you wondering what verjuice is, it is made by pressing unripe grapes, and can be used in the same way that you would use vinegar or lemon juice, but with a much more subtle acidity. I also picked up some italian arborio rice for making risotto, some chorizo sausage and some green lentils (also known as french lentils or puy lentils). i love green lentils because they don't need soaking before cooking, and they cook in 20-30 minutes. together with my other store cupboard essentials such as some good liquid chicken stock, tomato puree and tinned tomatoes, dried pasta, polenta, pancetta and some fetta and parmesan, i always have on hand what i need to pull together a quick and easy dinner.

Anyway, my outfit for today:

Country Road heather grey short puff sleeve, scoop neck wool knit
Ann taylor grey glen plaid wool cuffed pants

Lambertson Truex tan leather handbag
