This week has been all about food, from burgers to scones (see last two posts here (about scones) and here). It has also been a week of planning, booking tickets for things and looking ahead. Here are a few of this week’s small pleasures.
Yes! Spring is here! The kowhai is blooming, daffodils are out and there are signs of warmer days ahead.
The small things that count
A haircut, Pilates, taking a moment to stop and look at things in the Botanic Gardens, Charlie the cat’s cute little face, a new pair of socks….
An Exhibition of Tiny Portions
We managed to catch An Exhibition of Tiny Portions, part of Wellington on a Plate, but an exhibition rather than an eating event. It featured iconic Wellington dishes from well-known places, but in miniature. Rose Young, the artist behind this, did a wonderful job. I loved the fact that some of the real food was there too, such as Leeds Street Bakery’s salted caramel cookies.
