sooo at kirribilli on saturday as we ran through the ran with our heads hung low packing up our stall from the wet we managed to have a quick look at some of the stalls that were lucky enough to be set up in the tunnel and out of the rain.
low and behold we both got some bargains which did wonders at helping saddness of our failed attempt at a stall that day!
mink pink peach shirt with a long back ... $25 (yep!!) and staple tie dye dress the most amazing thin cotton (love!!) $20!!! i know right!!!


happy monday! kidding!! happy wednesday! how amazing are three day weeks!!!
my easter long weekend was lovely! i did...nothing! it was so nice!
sadly on saturday we got rained out of kirribilli markets :( which was a bit sad but hopefully better luck next time!
thursday night we kicked started the long weekend with a super yummy dinner at nicci's house. she made us terrayaki salmon & vanilla panna cotta!!! i have no words for the panna cotta. amazing. tasty. delicous. the best! i had never had it before! and it was heavenly with a glass of vino!
this is the recipe she used its riducuoulsy easy! its a donna hay....

vanilla bean panna cotta
Serves 4

1 tsp gelatine powder
1 Tbsp water
2 cups pouring cream
1/2 cup icing sugar, sifted
1 vanilla bean, split and scraped*
1 x 150g punnet raspberries

Place the gelatine in a bowl, pour over the water and allow to stand for 5 minutes.
Place the cream, icing sugar and vanilla bean and seeds in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to the boil.

Add the gelatine mixture and stir to dissolve.
Remove the vanilla bean and pour mixture into 4 x 1/2 cup-capacity lightly greased moulds.

Refrigerate for 4-6 hours or until firm.
Remove from the fridge 5 minutes before serving.
Remove from the mould and serve with the raspberries.

* To scrape the seeds from a vanilla bean, use a small, sharp knife to cut the bean in half. Run a butter knife down the cut sides to remove the seeds.
