With the Trip Countdown sitting at just over 100 sleeps, excitement and anticipation are building.
So many adventures looming; so many things to sort before takeoff.
Trust Confucius to restore focus when it all gets too much.
The accompanying refreshments were a nod to an irritating craze sweeping the Homestead at the moment for which family diva Jacq Dee must take some responsibility: homemade savouries and chips.
Huh? Why blame the singer?
Recently we sat in the audience, glowing with pride as she started at the very beginning, climbed every mountain and shaved a good eighteen months off her age. Central to the Sound of Music is a simple tribute to that small, white alpine flower; Edelweiss. Unfortunately, “Edelweiss” and “Pie and Chips” are effortlessly (and annoyingly) interchangeable when the chief chef innocently asks for menu suggestions.
No photographic evidence remains of today’s morning tea because, when it comes to a treat as wonderful as pie and chips, it’s definitely a case of going at it unreservedly – with all your heart!

Would like to have seen the pie and chips!
Unfortunately gluttony overcame us 😊
pie isn’t a thing here…savoury pie that is (fruit pies are definitely a thing), and I miss it, because meat pie was a staple of my childhood – steak and kid, steak and mush, chicken pot pie, cornish pasty, and tourtiere (traditional Quebecois meat pie). One of the many reasons I fell in love with NZ was all the varieties of savoury pies I met down there. Glad you enjoyed it, but picture next time…
Only 100 sleeps – wow!
Hard to beat pie and chips.
Pie and chips – yum!! Something I haven’t had for ages and am trying to resist for a while longer.
Yes, some foods don’t sit around long enough to have their pictures taken. There is only one way to eat chips – freshly cooked and hot!
