As from Sunday I'll be away from my computer for about a week. Just when we were making plans to move to Queensland, where it is so much warmer than Auckland, something came up. We are still moving, but only 800 metres down the street, closer to the beach, bars and movie theatre.
A couple of weeks ago my 6 monthly CT Scan showed a return of cancer with a couple of spots on my lungs. I will be having surgery to remove them and this will be done in two operations spread 6 weeks apart. The first surgery is on Monday at midday and for a short while my mind will be on other things and not baking or blogging.
We decided now would be a good time to downsize. Our move is from our 5 bedroom home with my dream kitchen to a three bedroom townhouse which has a reasonable kitchen but much smaller than I'm used to. It will be interesting to see how my cooking changes as I adjust to my surroundings.
At this point we are half way through the move and will be in our new home by Friday evening. This week we've enjoyed a few deli meals for lunch as there hasn't been time for cooking. The cheeses in the picture are Onetik Blue Des Basques Brebis, French Rouzaire Truffle Brie and French Chaumas. The meats are Spanish Serrano Jamon and Iberian salami.
The next Hay Hay It's Donna Day will be hosted by Peabody. Keep an eye on her Culinary Concoctions for the challenge. I'm hoping to be sufficiently recovered to compete.
