Last week Matilda got home from Italy so we decided to catch up for lunch so we could talk about her trip and look at some photo's. We went to a place called Tuckeria Fresh Mexican in The Valley. Very different to the Mexican I am used to having only really been to Montezuma's. I had the chicken nachos (pictured below). What I loved about these is that they were not your regular store bought corn chips. I have a total weakness for corn chips. My absolute favourite. I can devour a packet in minutes. The chicken had a beautiful char grilled flavour and I chose to have the black beans with the hot salsa. The hot salsa was not that hot. It could have been a lot spicier. But overall a great experience. If you live in Brisbane I highly recommend you give it a go.

What exciting things have you been up to this weekend? Well I have been out to breakfast, went to a Tupperware party, been for a blood test, took the dog for a walk, went to bunnings and still managed to fit in a little tv and some time with Mr S.
We had a bit of homemade (sort of) Peking duck for dinner last night. Coles has a new line of products from luv a duck. Which happens to be from Nhill in Victoria which is where Mr S was born. Never heard of it?? Neither had I until I met him. I think if you blink when driving through you will miss it.
Anyway here are a few pictures from our dinner last night. While I LOVE duck, Mrs S would not normally order this from a menu anywhere. There would be 10 other things that he would choose before choosing duck.
Pack from Coles from memory it was $18.50
In the pack you get 2 Peking roast duck legs, hoisin sauce and the pancakes

I look forward to all my magazine subscriptions turning up each month. I have subscriptions to Real Living, Home Beautiful, Australian Good Food, Australian House and Garden and Delicious. My real living magazine turned up in the mailbox today and the cover instantly caught my eye. I just love the colours they have used this month, and love the material on the couch.
What I really like about this magazine is that they actually include items that anyone can afford. I sometimes get annoyed when reading other magazines to find out that the cushion that I loved and thought I had to get cost $195.00. I'm sorry, but I am
never going to pay $195.00 for 1 cushion no matter how nice it is.
Well I have now read this cover to cover while laying on the couch and sort of watching State of Origin at the same time. Well not so much watching of TV, maybe only lifting my head to look at the TV when there was a try scored and a bit of biffo (I'm partial to a bit of the old biffo) It's just not state of origin without it. Well done Queensland!!
