I randomly picked 29th Jan 2006 it was a rainy old trip to...
I had a lovely day today! We went to the beach this morning before it got to hot. Maddy and Shaughan had a great time while I got my camera out. My mate came up in the afternoon and we sat outside caught up over a few beers and food. We decided to have a New Years shin dig here this year, I'm excited! I was just saying to Shaughan this week that I miss all the parties we had in our old place, it was a perfect place to party! So if you are in Wanganui and have nothing better to do come up and celebrate the start of 2011 with us :)

Here is a cute email I got for the recipe exchange - Didee here in Brunswick heads, Australia. Here is my recipe contribution. One I made up in my creative cauldron!
One packet of Spaghetti
One big bunch of mint. (You can use parsley or coriander if preferred however Ive found the mint is a winner.)
2-3 large spoons of plain natural Greek style yogurt
two cloves of garlic
small hand full of Parmesan cheese, grated
salt and pepper to taste
2 desert spoons of Macadamia butter or another type nut butter, but not peanut. (ie pine nut, almond)
small hand full of sun drired tomatoes, optional
small hand full of Green olives, optional
small handful of spicy salami, optional
Cook the spaghetti add olive oil to the water to stop it from sticking.
While spaghetti is cooking, chop the mint and garlic very finely and mix in nut butter and 2-3 desert spoons of olive oil to make a pesto.
Drain the spaghetti and add the yogurt and salt and pepper (using two forks to lift and blend the yogurt throughout.
Mix in the pesto mix until the green colour is consistent throughout. add the sun dried tomatoes, olives and salami if desired garnish with grated Parmesan cheese and a few of the uncut mint leaves.
Yum yum. Kai is on!
