Well meaning but didn't quite happen

Hola Readers,

another lame excuse post from me- I had planned to write some blogs this weekend and a story about upcoming Porchetta Day- but these have been put on hold! I have instead, been in bed all weekend with the dreaded flu (damn you Ekka time). At least I got the time to start- and finish- Medium Raw by Anthony Bourdain which has been on my list for some time now! Have you read it yet?

In the mean time, do yourselves a favour and check out Porchetta Day website. Porchetta Day is fun by my family and friends in my home town, and is a not for profit food festival. Growing up in country towns means there is a lack of anything really cultural, so my Dad and my Godfather have set about to get something great happening. We started having porchetta at our house years ago with all our family and friends, and now it has developed into a real festival!! You can read about the festival here and check out last year's inaugural festival here. You should definitely consider the trip down for the weekend if you live in NSW!

I also wanted to let you know that I have been on the waiting list for literally 5 months now, to have my blog redesigned. HOPEFULLY it will be happening soon (within the next couple of weeks). The girl that is doing it, has had some personal trauma and I seriously love her designs, otherwise would have gone with someone else long ago. So G.G is going to undergo a make over really soon!! I'm excited about that!! Lots of new features!

Anyway- I'm off, back into my bed, to snuggle down. I must say, C was looking after me rather well yesterday, but has slacked off considerably today, even if he did go and get me KFC nuggets. What!!??! KFC NUggets I hear you shriek. I know, I know, believe me, I already know. I never eat McDonalds or Hungry Jacks or anything similar, and the only time I give in to 'real fast food' is when I have the flu. There is something about their nuggets with sweet and sour sauce when I'm feeling off colour. Weird I know. They are somehow bland without being too tasteless and the sauce is always deliciously repulsively gross.

So I bid you farewell and will crawl back under the covers feeling slightly sorry for myself, whilst I look forward to something a little more nourishing for dinner.

Tell me readers, Do you ever eat Fast Food? When and what do you eat most frequently??

'Experts' say that we should listen to our bodies and it will tell us what it needs - even if it is KFC chicken nuggets. Everything in moderation, my dear! HOpe you're feeling in tip-top shape again soon =)

We have all had the bug here too, it's still lingering and waiting to pounce back at the slightest provocation. I spent some days in bed last week, but duty calls and I'm not contagious enough to avoid work now. hope you feel well soon.

Sorry to hear you've been sick. It's a bugger isn't it? I was waylaid for weeks :( I do eat it occasionally and it's usually brown rice sushi although it can occasionally be a meatball sub from Subway-so bad but so moreish!

Have the sneezes but fingers crossed I miss the rest! Hope you're feeling better soon.

Maccas nuggets. Or KFC wings. About once or twice a month. Everything else is home cooked. :)

Only when drunk, severely hungover, or severely jetlagged. Maccas cheeseburgers are my drug of choice. (and if it's eaten in another country, it doesn't count)

Get better soon xx

Macca's Quarter Pounder. No chips and no coke though, makes me feel less guilty!

Hope you're feeling better and get well soon! And thanks for sharing about Porchetta Day.

Oh dear hope you're back to 100% soon. I don't eat fast food much, but if I do it's usually Thai food... Mmmm.. Panang curry :)

Damn that Ekka flu indeed. It has struck other people I know, too. Always, without fail this time of year.

The Annual Porchetta Day sounds like a lot of fun. Definitely not something you'd expect to see outside of the city, as you say.

Anyway, rest up. Get well soon!!!
