Hello Again!

We're back from New Zealand -  more tired and heavier than when we went, which is odd because we sat on a coach most days, and some of the food provided was not the highlight of the trip, unfortunately. We also tried very hard not to over-eat, but the temptation of full breakfasts on most days was too much, even if we didn't eat lunch! Overall, it was a great trip, with some really breathtaking sights. Here's a photo of a bay on the east coast of South Island, just north of Dunedin.



As CT hasn't yet had his cholesterol levels checked, I'll be sticking with the low saturated fat baking for a while longer and my first choice, for speed and convenience, will be a double batch of these brownies made with mayonnaise.

Lovely to see you back, and glad to hear you had a good time. Hope CT and FB managed well in your absence! Bet there's lots of catching up to be done!

Welcome back Suelle. Glad you had a good time, despite the lack of good food. We spent 5 months travelling around NZ, but never got further south than Christchurch on the East side and Golden Bay on the West - there was just so much to see - we loved it.

Welcome back! I don't think it is possible to travel for more than about 2 days without having disappointing meals.
