blur of a week
What a challenge we had last week, but even after Airline blunders, missing lamb and savoy shortages, we made it!
So no trophy this year, but we had a great trip to Christchurch, and caught up with family, and enjoyed the awards.
Came back, and nearly was bumped off our flight......the one I needed to be on to cook the dinner for the NZ food writers guild. But after a bit of protesting, threatening to sue and the threat of me litterally exploding in the middle of the airport, I flew back on time.
Katie and wee Brodie had to wait for another flight.
The dinner went very well. Big thanks to Bill and the team at the Rutherford for their help,
and Wangapeka Prime Lamb for finding the missing lamb(Through no fault of their own, or mine), and Lamb and Beef New Zealand for sponsoring the dinner( and asking me to cook it!).
And now we get to enjoy the first normal week in some time.
So back into book writing mode.
