With every good intention I said I would choose the winner of the apron giveaway on Sunday night. Well obviously it is now Monday night and I still haven't. Tomorrow is Melbourne Cup Day and the kids and Daddy were home today as the schools often make it a long weekend and hubby usually takes the day off. So together we prepared for a Cup Day party we're having tomorrow and I have had to drop all sewing (put it away) and clean, scrub and cook.
I have now decided I will leave the drawing of the competition until Wednesday when I have finished the new aprons and can show you them properly. In the meantime, just so you don't think I'm completely useless I can show you a little sneak peak of one of the new aprons which I personally think are well worth the wait!
If you are wondering why I am saying 'aprons' you will have to wait until Wednesday and I will reveal all.
Now I'm off to cook a lemon tart. We are having a barbeque with lamb cutlets done in cumin, garlic and lemon juice, chicken marinated in sesame oil and soy, sausages (of course), chargrilled sweet potato, zucchini, asparagus and red and yellow peppers, tomato, basil and bocconcini salad and potato salad. I will prepare a yummy antipasto to start and have already roasted some marinated mushrooms - mmmmmm! My girlfriend is bringing her delicious pavlova and the kids will get some banana and choc chip muffins. Not a bad spread all round topped off with a few bottles of champagne - it is the races after all!
So I'll be back on Wednesday with a winner and some aprons and hopefully I'll back a winner tomorrow!!
