8th plan b | eating out instead of eating at home

I'd like to direct your attention
To something that needs directing to
A lot of people talk about
Dining in and eating out
I guess that's what this song's about - Madonna


Our daughter Kelly discovered this cute little Moroccan place down the road from our house. It is a homewares shop and organic cafe all rolled into one. And not being one to keep her fantastic discovery a secret, it was time we joined her in her fabulous second experience.

We settled on breakfast.

And for the record, breakfast is my favourite meal. I confess I don't understand why some people just have a cup of coffee when there is so much breakfast food to enjoy... french toast, pancakes, eggs, toast, hot drinks, croissants, oats, quiches... all so yummy... and made for breakfast!

We hardly ever go out for a meal these days. And today was a big reminder why. If you asked me what we talked about, I couldn't have told you. I spent more time chasing the tail of a certain toddler on his journey through Mini-Morocco.

Sad, but true.

And although the food was to die for, I relished in the company of family (when I could). Because as quickly as the house became full of people, laughter and madness, it has just as quickly dissipated. Today we all said goodbye again. And although it's so quiet in the house now... I really miss the noise.
