Fish, Commiseration and Financiers

Well what a weekend!

Friday night after French I had dinner with P. at a lovely restaurant that specialises in fish - not being a big fish eater, I'm always surprised when I leave this restaurant feeling that it's on my top 5... but they do it so simply and so well.

Saturday we voted for a state election, that evening we all went to a pub/restaurant nearby to watch as election results came in to decide the next leader of our state... and commiserated when our party of choice lost (to tell you the truth - I wanted neither party to win!)

Also, I finally met my brothers' new gf who was absolutely lovely, easily talkative, interesting and thoughtful (she offered to get me a drink and dinner!)... so big approval there! Who do you think is more scared when a sibling introduces a new gf/bf to the family, the sibling or the significant other? Had any strange experiences? Do tell...

Sunday, today was the day of financiers. I borrowed a great recipe from Indie.Tea at Darjeeling Dreams for dessert tonight after Dad's pork roast experiment ... and I think they turned out well, what do you think?

I love cooking sweet cakes and biscuits, but I end up eating the batter the entire way through - and always end up with that sick feeling at the end!

What have you been up to this weekend? Any tales to tell? Delicious food eaten?
