Coconut Banana Split

This is one of a number of Shazzie recipes I ate while on holiday (but unfortunately the only one I took a picture of)... it is the Coconut Banana Split from Detox Your World. It was really yummy except the fact that one of my bananas was certainly not up to the normal standard, which kinda wrecked it a little bit - now I know that it has lots of potential though, so I'll definately be trying it again when I have better bananas.

Now on to other matters - who knows that song 'The Best Things in Life are Free?" I don't know who it's by but it's very good. Anyway, my parents and I spent the last two days with their friends who live in a smallish town about 3 1/2 hours (by car) south of Perth. It is a lovely place, surrounded by huge ancient forests that we had a wonderful time exploring. We climbed an ENORMOUS (52m) tree that has been growing since 1795, which I loved - this is my back as I ascended it:

That's one example of how wonderful free things can be... I'm not going to go into any others as my purpose in mentioning that song was actually to talk about the wonderousness of free 'foraged' food!
Over the weekend I feasted on homegrown satsuma plums (ooooooohhhhhhhh, soooooooo gooood!), new season apples (so crisp and sweet), pears and wild grown blackberries, big juicy and delish. All this stuff for free which would have cost at least $20, probably a fair bit more, to buy. Amazing!

Well, after 2 weeks away I have lots of things to do so I shall have to say goodbye and hope you all have an incredible day. Thankyou to everyone who expressed sympathy over the tragic passing of two beloved guinea pigs, I miss them a lot though not as much as little Placdi the only survivor, who I am currently looking into finding a friend for.

Money - by The Flying Lizards

The best things in life are free but you can give them to the birds and the bees...

If you google Flying Lizards and check out the YouTube link it has a video of them doing that song (back in 1980). I think you could call that number a one-hit-wonder.

Is that it?
