Let's start with some Foodie Finds. These are all things I've discovered for the first time this week; it's always exciting and somewhat rare to see something new, read the ingredients, and not put it back on the shelf.
This locally made Mustard Makers dressing is seriously good. The flavour is amazing, and the oil is olive oil, not gak-worthy canola oil. *angels sing*
Slim Pasta. (*work alert* their site has a video with sound that starts automatically). I haven't actually tried this Aussie import yet. It's made from something called Konjac. Has anyone eaten this stuff?
Mixed berries from the OOB people. I'm on a berries with breakfast kick right now, and it's nice to get organic ones, because berries often feature in the dirty dozen as regards pesticide residue.
Another local find, Karengo and Tamarillo Chutney from Pacific Harvest. This is spicy, contains minerals from the Karengo (wild Nori) and is the perfect condiment for .. anything, really. You can't taste the seaweed.
Organic Gluten Free Beefy Pie from the Liberty Market. I love it when the packet makes you think that you could have made it yourslef, but *yay*, you don't have to because somebody else did it.
I dressed it up with a bit of that Karengo chutney. This pie tastes homemade - none of that 'hyperflavour' you get from a supermarket pie, and it's a decent size, not enormous.
Buckwheat soba noodle and chicken soup.

And now, I'm off to look at cars. It's definitely time to replace my beloved rust-bucket. I'm thinking of a Suzuki Swift or Toyota Vitz, but if you have any recommendations for a student budget, five door, economical car with some cute factor (sooo important), please tell. :D
