Recently we went back to my hometown to celebrate my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary. We hung out with the family and took in the local markets.
We played with matchbox toys.
Moser the dog kept an eye on the street.
Got some fruit and vegetables at the car boot markets. The markets are held underneath a shopping centre which makes it a bit dark and dingy but good for all weather.
Besides fruit, vegetables, plants and other hot food choices there are crafts, second hand boots and a pretty good array of vintage clothes. If you don’t mind a bit of a fossick about it’s well worth the look.
So it seems I’m on a bit of a mission to ensure we all eat right before a big ride. Last week I shared a fantastic trio of granola recipes from A beautiful mess and now I’ve got another one from eat sleep cuddle.
Peanut butter and honey granola, doesn’t it just sound scrumptious?

Now we all know cyclists need a good breakfast or the dreaded BONK will hit after a few hours in the saddle. This delicious looking homemade Granola from Emma and Elsie at A Beautiful Mess might be just the thing to keep the body fuel topped up?

Recently we met up with some of our awesome Twitter friends whom we’d never met in person before. It was a fun filled night with food, lots of talking about cycling, ginger beer slurpees and feeding possums!
The following Friday night we went back to the same Japanese place for food but this time we snapped some photos.
