Well today was the day of our Christmas Lunceon, held at Mt. Misery Mine Cafe in the heart of the old gold rush town at Nundle. We started the morning at Cottage on the Hill, and the lovely Kerry had organised for us to make Snowmen. We had a morning tea of lovely rich chocolate assorted items. White chocolate with crushed mint candy canes, yummy, and a lovely Rocky Road Christmas Tree, now that was good!!! (Thanks to Sharon for the Christmas Tree and Kerry for the other goodies.) We then drove to the Cafe where the most popular lunch seemed to be the Chicken Schnitzel, potato gems and salad. Other lunches included, Salt and Pepper Squid, Flathead Fillets, Ham, cheese and pineapple melts, tempura battered prawns. It was such a hot day that we drank litres of water, yes water, no alcohol. Here are a few photos of the day. The temperature reached nearly 40 degrees Celcius today which is about 105 degrees Fahrenheit.
Vicki is getting married on Saturday so we all made a 12-1/2" block in mainly whites, creams, gold and Kerry joined them all. Thanks Kerry!!
