Goodbye 2012 Hello 2013

Posted on Jan 8, 2013 in Foodie Buzz

Midway through January 2013 already! I trust you all had a magnificent festive season with your family and friends; no doubt New Years was much the same, full of smiles and bubbles aplenty.

I treated myself to a holiday with absolutely no social media and no computers, and you know what? I loved every minute of it! I think it’s important for people to turn away from technology once in a while. It reminds us that we’re human and it allows us to slow down, relax and ‘smell the roses’ so to speak.

My first week of holidays consisted of 4 separate Christmas Days (the joy of the modern day separated family). I had great fun mind you, I adore my family! I also adored all the food and drinks I consumed too. In the second week of holidays B and I relaxed, watched movies, went to the beach, got a massage, caught up with friends and did a bit more relaxing – ahh the life!

So 2013 hey…. what’s on offer for us this year I wonder. Do you have any exciting plans? A big holiday perhaps? Me, I’m going to stick with my quest on discovering who the growers and farmers are in my region and who’s supporting them. I’m going to support local suppliers wherever possible and my recipes and stories this year will reflect that. I want to grow as a person; I want to be more mindful of where my food comes from and in-doing-so helping others wherever possible along the way.

So on that note a big cheers to you all and may 2013 be a fun year filled with memories, good times and lots of fun foodie adventures!

Here’s a few happy snaps and food shots of my Christmas holidays 2012.


  1. YUM! I loved that you had a little bit (or perhaps not….) of everything. I had holiday free from technology too. Loved every minute of it, but itching to get back into the kitchen. Good luck on your quest for local produce. Will look forward to reading all about it. Here’s to a fab year:)

    • Hi Jay! Thanks for stopping by 🙂 I hope 2013 is a magical year for you too. I’ve got a very informative story coming out today about ‘paddock to plate’

  2. Wow, that’s certainly an impressive Christmas feast! Traditional meets Aussie summer 🙂

    • Sure was! As you can imagine I pretty much couldn’t move afterwards – but hey isn’t that what Christmas is all about!
