He Cooks: Homegrown Butternut Pumpkins

Remember the pumpkins from

The soup was amazing even though I wouldn’t let him put much in it (“NO POTATOES! NO SOUR CREAM! NO TOUCHING!). He was going to throw away the seeds at first, too, but ended up making a healthful and delicious snack out of them in the oven with a bit of olive oil, salt and cayenne pepper.

10/10; would eat again (if he prepares all the pumpkins like today!) bigsmile

He Cooks: Fresh-Caught Tailor

Dating an angler means occasionally I have to put up with his totally zonked out state from having been out fishing all previous night and/or early morning and then crashing super early, but sometimes it also means fresh fish for dinner, like tonight!

All prepared and cooked by him. Win! heart

Caught My First Fish!

Another gorgeous day spent with Richard and his 3 other friends for some picnic and light swimming at Jibbon Beach, and then fishing from the boat at Gannons Bay and Hacking River!

I caught my first fish ever! And second! And third!

Fish I Caught: Tailor, Baby Snapper, Trevally
Fish I caught: Tailor fish (left), Baby snapper (centre), Trevally (right)

Two we could keep and one devoured on the same night!

Trevally Dinner
Dinner is fresh self-caught trevally!

I really can’t thank Richard enough for everything. Next time: more fish, and even more sunscreen!
