Raspberry Lemonade and outings in Melbourne
raspberry lemonade many years ago. (A shame because the photos in the old post still make me happy.) I guess it helps that we make lemonade quite often. Once you have lemonade down pat, it is not hard to tweak it with raspberries.
Reaching Tin River when she runs into a blown up photo to try and become part of it. Don't worry, I didn't run into any of these pictures. But I just loved that scene in the book and have never forgotten it.
Basco's street stall. It was a Korean fried cauliflower, Asian slaw, vegan mayo, gochujang sauce, pickled ginger and fresh herb. Basco was popular. The wait was lengthy. As I waited I noticed that the taco was marked as spicy. It was indeed, but not too hot for my delicate tastebuds. I loved my taco and just wished I had ordered two of them.
I'd love to visit Basco for a meal. They seem to have lots of interesting vegetarian food. Sadly they seem to only be open in the evening which is less convenient for me. Maybe one day.
Syndromes Without A Name (SWAN). We stumbled into the event thanks to a recommendation to go along. It was a fete/fundraiser with the usual bouncy castle, cake stall and raffles. Mostly Sylvia and I had the Grill'd sliders, the sweet slices and zooper dooper flavoured ices. It made me me think of how hard some families have it and how lucky we are.

Adapted from Green Gourmet Giraffe
1 cup water
1 1/4 cup castor sugar
1 cup lemon juice (about 4 large lemons)
1-2 litres soda water to serve
Gently heat the water and sugar in a small saucepan until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. While this is heating, push the raspberries through a sieve and discard pulp (or save for muffins or smoothies). Add the lemon juice and strain into funnel above a jug or bottle that you can store in the fridge for a few weeks. When ready to drink, put about 1 part raspberry lemonade mixture with 2-3 parts soda water.
