Malaysian Fried chicken prep.
Tonight it is just me & the 3 big lads so I am making an epic feast of their very favourite.
Malaysian Fried chicken wings & Asian style slaw.
We are going to watch a movie & just hang out.
I have made a spice mix with loads of Turmeric, Coriander, Cumin, Ginger & Garlic pounded in a mortar & pestle.
Then in a large bowl pop the chicken wings in and douse with a good glug of Soy.
Now add the spice mix & mix well until all chicken is coated.
Now for the secret 'best crunchy wings ever' ingredient- Potato starch!
This is what will be the difference between 'Good' wings & 'OMG THESE ARE EPIC' wings!
(You'll find it at the asian grocer- see packet in pic for reference)
Now set aside for a couple of hours to marinate & then deep fry in batches.
Place batches on a wire rack in a 100C oven until all done & then feast!

Throwing some large Porcelain vessels today. ❤️

There is something magical about the nothingness yet everythingness of open ocean beaches.
The epic sound of the power of the crashing waves mixed with the empty expanse of kilometres of beaches with no-one on them.
It's soul filling.

9 degrees & very windy but ......HOLIDAYS👊🏻

Boiled egg & toast soldiers & a bowl of coffee.
My idea of a perfect brekky.

A story in todays Sunday Life magazine in the Age & SMH about our family home.
Click on the link in my profile for the story & lots more shots.
With many thanks to the very lovely duo @heathernetteking & @armellehabib ❤️❤️

This is the face of a mum to five who survived the hell that was Term 3 & now gets to spend THREE whole weeks just hanging out with her kids.
This brings me enormous joy.
Can you hear that MAHOOSIVE sigh?!
Yup. Relief all round.
And now to breathe out.......

The Longstrump series was dreamt up as an ode to one of my life long idols- Pippi Longstrump.
When I was a very young girl our family lived in Sweden.
It was there we discovered the magnificent Pippi.
Here she was - a wild, loving, rambunctious, fun loving, stripey tights & boot wearing, independent, loyal friend, free spirited & incredibly strong in mind & body girl.
Exactly the kind of girl I wanted to be.
I immediately fell in love with Pippi.
What a female role model!
She came with me back to Australia in the early 70's when nobody knew who she was. Thankfully now, Astrid Lindgren's character is a known & loved character around the world.
This series of Ceramic vessels is an ode to Pippi.
Apparently rough & wild on the surface yet the internal surface yields the gold & beauty within.
And of course- the magnificent wild stripey legs.
Pippi I heart you❤️
