move over masterchef, munch on 'the market's menu - Sunday 4th July!

I couldn't help share this!
yum.  Now, don't you just wish you could be at 'the market'?...I am going as a contestant. I mean stallholder.
Would love you to come and say 'hi', if you are around Hobart.
I think I may have to skip bringing lunch that day! My seven year old, after seeing this menu, decided he must come along to help me this Sunday.  Even explaining that it's a 7 hour affair, hasn't deterred him!  I'm not sure whether this mama needs this kind of help so much, as I know after 2 hours he's going to get bored, (as much as I tell him that kids shouldn't know the meaning of the word 'bored'), and getting home isn't going to be an option. 
We'll see!

Thanks for those that left interesting comments on this post, re: Masterchef.
I liked ange moore's challenge of getting 'the contestants to cook a meal for a family of 6 with whatever you can find in the cupboard in 15 minutes!!'
It did get me thinking that I would rather go to a nice beach with some good fish and chips, and sit with my family.  Now that is a quality dining experience.

Have a great week, peeps.


  1. Oh my goodness! That sounds divine, wish I could be there (not just for the food of course) ;) good luck with the 'help' too! Hee hee!
