We entertained ourselves at work today by getting into the spirit of the Melbourne Cup. We bought bets on horses which we drew out randomly and I came first place with Shocking!

We also brought in something each for morning tea. It was a busy day so for most of us, it actually became our substitute lunch.

Natalia made the hedgehog slice...and it was frikkin' awesome!! I haven't had a hedgehog slice since uni. Hedgehog slices usually have the texture of a biscuit but Natalie's was gooey like fudge. Yum! We were all asking for the recipe afterwards.

At home, I had a quick snack while my dinner was cooking.

Mum's Pork Rib Soup

Dinner was roast lamb. I made slits in the lamb and poked slices of garlic and fresh sage leaves from the garden in. I roasted potatos, carrots, onions and garlic with the lamb.

Half way through cooking, I poured some Vegeta stock over the vegetables and the pan juices made such a delicious gravy afterwards! The lamb was extremly moist, tender and just mmmMMmm...
