It's actually been raining and coldish here at the moment. Odd weather. Sometimes, life does throw you some serious thunderstorms followed by months and months of dreary rain- that is certainly what it feels like at the moment.
I'm worried that the poor little garden will be flooded. I went out today in the pouring rain - (tried waiting for a break, but it never came!) to try to make sure the rhubarb and beetroot didn't have water pooling at the base. I made some little walls around them on the order of the gardening man who knows everything from the nursery, except now I'm a little bit disillusioned by the gardening man's advice - he seems to have been telling a few untruths.

You may have noticed a couple of changes on G.G. - just a few cosmetic things, but also, in time the blog will have new segments - much more than just the usual reviews and recipes. I've had lots of emails from readers checking up on me as I haven't been posting regularly so really appreciate that- you're lovely. I have had an incredibly tough couple of months and so have decided to go and take a holiday for a couple of months and among other things, spend some time with my family in North West NSW.

Last post told you all about an idea that my friend Kay had for The Cook Book Club, you can read the details of the event on the website but I wanted to do another guest post, which details the wrap up of a typical cook book club meeting. One of the very popular recent meetings was focused on last year's Masterchef winner; Adam Liaw's cook book, Two Asian Kitchen. Kay posts the possible recipes, then attendees choose one and let her know, then on the day they all bring the food to a central location, which is usually Kay's house, but can alternate. Great idea! This is what happened at the Two Asian Kitchen's Cook Book Club meet:
