Hard to believe that my trip to Australia is half over. Time just seems to fly when you’re having fun (and eating lots).
I’m staying with my friends, V and K, in Wollongong. So while K works, V and I are off looking for yummy eats. We did have a couple of meals at home because I played the role of the demanding house guest and asked that K make his famous lasagna. Afterall, part of the reason I flew all the way over the Pacific was for that lasagna. 😉
Having arrived the previous morning after a lengthy and turbulent landing, I was well-rested for my first full day in Australia.
Easing into our day, we decided on pancakes for breakfast. I played the easy role of V’s assistant in the kitchen.
K made smoothies with orange juice, mango and banana… Perfect for our sunny brunch.
When everything was ready, we set the table and enjoyed our brunch… with a view of Mt Keira. What a great way to start our day!
Later in the afternoon, V and I went for a short trip to visit the Nan Tien Temple.
OK, I admit… we actually made a trip to the temple for the food. The last time I visited, V and K took me to the temple and we did the main sightseeing … and then stopped for tea and dumplings. I really enjoyed the food so I requested to visit the temple’s Dew Drop Inn Tea House for their munchies.
Technically it was our lunch so V and I ordered a lot more than last time. Here’s what we ordered:
After our vegetarian lunch munchies at the temple, we had to plan for (what else?)… our next meal. Watching K and V shop for lasagna ingredients was our next activity followed immediately by watching K prepare dinner. Yes, he was making lasagna.
Yay!! Very content….!
