Food for Thought


BrisStyle had a fairly important meeting yesterday.  We needed a large percentage of members to be present or to send in their proxies.  Thankfully we had the numbers and the proposals were carried unanimously.  Being a committee member of this dynamic and ever-increasing organisation takes huge chunks out of my day, but the rewards come with occasions such as yesterday. 

Then there are the other perks - these girls can cook!  Take a look at what was placed on the table for morning tea.

I realise that the table looks a little bare, but by the time I found my camera in the Black Hole (AKA The Handbag) the hungry hoards had done their worst.

I knew what my contribution was going to be.  I found the most scrumptious recipe for peanut butter fudge (what else?) on Flossie Teacakes' blog and had a terrible time keeping the flies and husband away from the tin.  The original recipe comes from Sophie Dahl, so my husband really wants to thank you Sophie and Florence of Flossie Teacakes for making his Anzac Day Long Weekend complete (yes, I did bring home the left-overs).

Committee leader Helen (top, middle) explained some of the finer points to the members.

Hard-working committee members Rebecca and Bel are clearly pleased with the outcome.

After the members departed, it was time for a committee meeting which, of course, meant time for lunch.

There was also a bottle or two of Moet somewhere in the background, if my memory serves me correctly.  A very successful day.

If music be the food of love, eat on!
(Apologies to Mr Shakespeare.)

P.S.  If you are within coo-ee of Brisbane next Friday evening (30 April), give yourself a real treat and walk over to King George Square, where you will be able to meet the lovely members of BrisStyle at their first Twilight Market.  I wish I could be in two places at once, but I will be in New Zealand with some of the family.  The Twilight Market has captured the imagination of the city fathers and the Lord Mayor of Brisbane has thrown his support beind the event, so we are expecting big things!

The future is very exciting for Brisstyle, I had a wedding to go to so I couldn't make it but really appreciate all you and the committee do to keep Brisstyle running and moving forward. Thanks Robyn.
