Yesterday was my mother's birthday, so today we went for a drive in the countryside...it was a beautiful Spring day, very warm, so I put the roof down on the car, and off we went. I know it's rude to discuss a lady's age, but I do have to give you a hint and tell you she is only a couple of years off the big 8.0.! Can you believe it? Doesn't she look incredible?
I have shown you guys this gorgeous place before, called Bella Vedere, in the Yarra Valley near my home. The food here is delicious - beautiful, fresh seasonal produce, prepared simply. Mum had the rabbit in apple cider, and I chose veal cutlet with a porcini mushroom sauce - yum! We decided to forego dessert, as I had baked an orange cake in the morning, and decided we would have coffee and cake for afternoon tea at home.
