Sunshine Day

Sunshine, and what may not have been but certainly felt like the hottest day of the year.
Actually it was intermittently cloudy in the morning, but we'd planned a trip to the Botanic Gardens and went despite the cloudy start.

Too hot to eat much - we just had Thai  chicken soup with coconut milk for our dinner. It was much quicker to make than a similar Malaysian soup I tried recently, but perhaps just not quite as nice. I'd make both again - so long as the butcher goes on offering me free chicken carcasses which make superb stock. Today I put the stock on before we went out, and let it simmer until we got back from the Botanic Gardens.


  1. The Botanic Gardens are one of my favourite outings, we often go there in the weekends.

    Lovely poppy! The season for poppies seem to last for months.

    I saved your recipe in pinterest. It seems to have lots of ingredients for a lazy cook like me, but it doesn't seem hard to make.

  2. My goodness Sabrina! what a wonderful pic of this vibrant poppy!
