Now I love batman.. he is the coolest super hero out there and I love all things batman... I often buy things for my hubby or nephews that are batman related because I love him so much and well they do too :P... my sisters youngest loves batman and has cool things like batman shoes and all sorts... I love asking him if he is batman... because he always adamant that he's not batman :P... our conversation goes like this:

me: are you batman?
him: no I'm not batman
me: OMG your batman, hi batman
him: I'm not batman
me: your batman

and so on and so forth :P hehe he's about to turn 4 so its very cute.... and its really important to be very serious when asking him if he is batman...

the other funny thing that has happened with this nephew of mine.. he's been telling my sister for a little while that auntie nikki is making him a batman chocolate cake with blue icing and batman candles for his birthday :P I'm just glad that my sister gave me the heads up :P

so post came about when I was wandering through costco and came across these cool gumboots

how cool are they?

Harvest Day 153

so again some normal sized and some massive zucchinis :D

Personal Best

I love that I can see how my fuel economy is going as I drive to see if I'm using more or less :) and I managed to get my fuel usage down to 7.5l per 100km which I was pretty impressed with :D

Harvest Day 151

Not a lot pick but some small strawberries.. which is all I have been getting in the strawberry department..

Harvest Day 148

More big zucchinis :D and some normal sized ones that I remembered to pick :P

Saddest Puppy In The World

or so she would like you to think...

see what she does... it makes it soo hard to resist... but I also know she is the last puppy in the world to be considered sad or poor :P but she does cute puppy dog eyes :P

I'm Allergic To...

Cucumber plants....

and I won't be planting it again next year....

its just a mild reaction which is good but I don't think its a good idea to plant again next year...

Harvest Day 144

Look at this beauty

almost half a kg worth of zucchini all in one :D 

Deep Fried Zucchini Flowers

trying new recipes is always easier done when your husband is a chef.. especially when I'm not so great with deep frying things...

so I picked a few zucchini flowers and stuffed them and dipped them in a thin batter before deep frying them and they were delicious

they will definitely be on next years menu :D

Harvest Day 142

(sorry I'm still late posting all these)

But I had a great year this year with zucchinis this is what I picked one day... 1.6 kgs of zucchini in one hit :D

and a not so good year with strawberries

its been great eating food that I've grown :D somehow it makes the food taste better
