We were supposed to work all day today, but it was so quiet that we got let off at 1pm, which was a bit of a bummer. Hopefully tomorrow is busy enough to keep us on all day, same for Sunday.
We are staying in the showgrounds, which is where the expo we are working at is held which is super convenient. These showgrounds don’t normally permit camping for some reason, but they do for workers when there are events on. They have ultra new showers/toilet blocks which is like luxury after the mosquito cesspool bathrooms of the last place we paid to stay at.
Also, there is possibly a farmers market here tomorrow morning, which is AWESOME! When we got work I was pleased, but also kind of bummed that we wouldn’t be able to look for a farmers market for the second weekend in a row. Now maybe they will come to us! I say maybe, because no one seems to be 100% sure whether they are on due to the expo being on. Fingers crossed!
Anyway, today’s food related business comes to you courtesy of Emma over at Coconuts and Berries. Her theme for vegan MoFo is awesome – she’s doing an A-Z of ingredients, featuring a different one every day. This was way back at C for chia seeds!
I love chia pudding. I also love overnight oats with chia seeds. I am also up to my ears in strawberries in Queensland! And while I have topped my brekkies with strawberries, I’d never thought to blend them into the milk. This was something I had to try!
Unfortunately, upon opening our strawberries we discovered they had begun to grow mould from the inside out, so I salvaged what I could but it definitely could have done with a few more. In saying that, this was a delicious change to my usual vanilla or chocolate version. Emma calls it ‘strawberries and cream’ and that’s exactly what it’s like – super creamy and sweet.
I recommend checking out this recipe (and all her other wonderful ones) here on her blog!
