  1. This sounds perfect to try tomorrow - a wet and cold spring day in Melbourne. Bon week-end.

  2. Wet and cold....we have been complaining about the heat but it will start turning cold here soon :-(
    Everytime I have visited Melbourne it has been either very hot or unseasonably chilly. Mind you we were living in Sydney at the time and most places are chilly when compared to Sydney in the summer.
    à très bientot, Leeann

  3. sounds delicious and quick. Will wait for it to cool down here in southern Arizona before cranking up the oven to try it.

  4. This is making me hungry! Nice recipe ♥
