Father's Day 2012

We celebrated Father's Day today, the 1st Sunday of September in Oz. A little different from the rest of the world where Father's Day is celebrated in June. It was a beautiful spring day, a little cool but the sun shone brightly. Chris was happy to spend a lazy day at home, being the homely creature that he is. Ash and Cait kept quiet in the morning so Dad could have a sleep-in. I woke up at 7:30am and headed to the local farmers market. 

The three of us made him a big Aussie breakfast - bacon, eggs, mushrooms and haloumi cheese. Ash also made him a mixed berry smoothie.
Later that day, Ash and I were busy baking and cooking in preparation for afternoon tea with my in-laws. Together, we made:
  • Buttermilk scones served with strawberry jam and double cream (Ash's specialty)

  • Red velvet cupcakes with vanilla icing (recipe from Magnolia Bakery book)

  • Roast pumpkin and feta tarts (this is the easier and tastiest finger food to make)

  • Fried mee hoon

My SIL bought:
  • Apple crumble cake

  • Variety of danish pastries
It was a simple afternoon tea, enjoyed by everyone.
