What a wet and miserable weekend in Sydney. I took advantage of one of the fine breaks of the day to go for a run, felt great to be out in the fresh air. I love that scent when it's just rained.
The creek where I run is usually barely a trickle of water. This morning it was comparatively bursting at the banks.
It's Sunday, it's a go slow weekend. What better way to explore this them then to get out my slow cooker to make one of my favourite childhood meals. Japanese golden curry. I first ate it at Mr Samurai, a Japanese fast food institution in Perth. Perfect for this weather and the slow cooker always makes sure the beef is tender. I love that slow cookers transform the cheapest cuts of meat into healthy, flavoursome meals. Today I was going all out, I browned the meat before starting the slow cooker. The house is now fragrant with the smell of a good dinner.
The routines of the weekend that help me feel rested for the week ahead.
