Prawns on the Barbie


Well Makybe Diva didn't let me down! My Dear Son came to lunch and brought me my winnings. (I try to only have a small flutter as there is gambling blood pumping through my veins and I refuse to let myself turn into a gambler - everything in moderation remember! I do enjoy it though).
So I have bought some prawn and scallop kebabs to have tonight on the BBQ. It is so hot here 25 degrees! Believe me, we are not used to it! We will eat outside, so some prawns and a cold wine should be nice. I mainly drink McGuigans Black Label Red. I tried it when we went to the Hunter Valley. It can be served chilled and it is the only red wine I can drink without getting a migraine. The man at the Vineyard told me to try it and he almost guaranteed I wouldn't get a headache. I tried it and was headache free so consequently, as I love the taste and love being able to have a cold wine, it has become my favourite.

I just walked down and bought the kebabs from our local fishmonger. They have very fresh fish. On the way back I called into Coles and bought some Eskimo Pies for a treat for DH. I spotted some Bulla chocolate Light Ice Cream Packs of 8 sticks and thought I would try them. They only work out to be 1.3 points each.

I just had one and it was very yummy. A tiny bit sweet for me, but certainly tasty. (Sweeter than chocollo - I love Chocollo!) Now I won't feel like tucking into an Eskimo Pie when DH has one.

Guess what!! There was a lady at the gym this morning! She was on the treadmill when I arrived and left after about 20 minutes. She was music free until I arrived, but said she didn't mind Suzy Quatro, so I turned it on. It was such a shock to have another body in the gym with me! Anyway I coped.

Sounds like you're in for a great night Suzy!

It's so hot here in Melbourne - 31 degrees and we're about to get thunder storms. Being a Tassie girl, I'm just not used to this!

I thought your reign of having the gym to yourself might come to an end sooner or later!! No one can be that lucky! - but it's good that she left after 20 minutes!!

I like Suzy Q too. The quintessential rock chick.

Hope you have a lovely evening.

A win a win! Woodilly hoodilly! I don't bet, I enter sweeps ($20 on demerger) but that's about it. A bloke in the building of the studio I contract to won $7000! (well $7500 but he put $500 down, he got a trifecta win by putting money on Makybe to win, and a bit on every other horse in the race...)

I love prawns, and have just drunken a glass of red - I love red wine and don't mind it cool or sparkling, depending on the variety. Have a wonderful night and enjoy your warm(ish) tassy bbq!

Oooh Eskimo Pies...now they bring back a whole load of childhood memories.

And unfortunately Gambling is in my blood too. I'm not allowed to go near the pokies too often, and the casino is a real treat for me. So I make do with the freeby online poker machines (sad I know!).

It was 32 degrees here today, and we're expecting 33 tomorrow....a bit sweaty!

Whooo hoooo. Living it up in style. Glad you coped with having to share your gym. Generous soul that you are LOL.

Have another great day tomorrow Suzy. :)

Sue said...

How rude! Someone else using your gym!

I buy those ice creams every week as they are so yummy and so low point. I am laughing at the thought of you in your hat sitting at home with a cuppa. That waa the spirit. And looking atthat gym you are so lucky so I am glad you are making good use of it.

Congrats on your win. Sounds like you have a lovely night planned. It is hot here too at the moment with promises of storms every night but they never seem to eventuate.
Will put ice creams on my shopping list when I can be trusted not to eat the lot in one go.
:o)

I have the same problem with reds. I've tried a few that are okay. One was at a winery in the Yarra Valley. The winemaker developed it for his wife who couldn't drink reds. It was nice and no headache, but I can't remember the name.

Kate said...

Hehe, I'm glad you saw someone else at the gym, just so you know you aren't imagining things :)

LOL at the gym experience and exercising to Suzy Quatro!! Very cool :-)
