Liebster Award

I’ve been nominated by Karin for the Liebster Award. And it’s about bloody time I responded to this! I don’t think my responses to the questions are all that great, but I thought I’d give this a try.

Review: The Niddrie Pizza

Let me start by saying, I don’t intend to become a food blogger… But something must be very special about this pizza if I’m still thinking about it days later, and feeling prompted to write a blog post. (Maybe I should be leaving a public review on Facebook and/or Zomato.)

Niddrie is a small suburb north-west of Melbourne, and here you’ll find Pizzeria Antichi Sapori, a family-run pizza restaurant. They didn’t have many options on the menu, apart from pizza, but they had some delicious home-made aranchini which was like nothing I’ve had before! In other words, I usually find aranchini to be pretty bland, but this one was bursting with flavour! However, I think the “Niddrie” pizza stole the show here. Meaty eggplant, soft and melty (not sticky) cheese, tomato sauce that tastes like tomato, and a very savory base/crust with just enough crunch.

Mouth-watering Niddrie pizza, and a tasty rocket salad in the background. Am I making you hungry? Sorry. (Not sorry.)

The staff were very friendly and responsive, and not all in your face, which I guess happened to be because we were there on a quiet night.

10/10. Would eat here again.

Australian Teabag Matcha!

Notice: I’m not getting paid to write this post. I’m just really excited to find matcha at the local supermarket!

Okay, it’s not 100% matcha, it’s a sencha blend, but it still has the bitter-with-a-hint-of-sweetness taste that I love. It also makes the tea a nice green colour.

It’s Ito En Australian Green Tea!

It’s everything I love about Japanese green tea, in teabag form! I can pick it up at the local Coles supermarket, rather than having to trek out to a specialist tea shop or Japanese goods store. I also love that the tea plant is farmed in Australia (so it means Aussies get jobs!) and processed in Japan (so we know it’s authentically made!)

Can you imagine a world where we had no struggles or war? Have you considered that your need to get even is just a manifestation of how you feel about yourself? If we can calm the rage within our own hearts, perhaps we can inspire others to do so.

Loving Your Feet

Feet. Eww! I know right. Those smelly, not-so-pretty things at the end of your legs. Why the lack of love?
