Hot pies at the footy.

It is possible to have a hot pie at the footy and not have to sell your first born child in the process. It is real easy, you take it yourself.

Recently, my father went away for a holiday, and he passed on his Raiders season tickets to me. So Taph and I went to the footy.

We took a couple of pies with us. We cooked them in the oven until they were nice and hot, wrapped them in foil, then in a couple of towels, and then put them in an insulated bag.

The guards at the footy usually don’t care about what food you bring, unless it is yummy, in which case they joke about wanting some. This is because they are usually checking for people trying to smuggle in alcohol.
So at half time, our pies were still warmer then the ones we would have gotten from the surly teenagers working at the food stalls at the footy.

And even better, the Raiders won the game.

The search continues

My search for the new dinner setting continues. Recently in Salvos Mitchell I spied these. They only had the cups and saucers. I left them there as I have enough cups and saucers, and this way they could be part of a catch and release program.

This find also meant that there are still bits out there, and that the search will go on.

Of course if I was searching for the Athena Patten, or for a Sheffield Bone White set, I would have finished my search ages ago and i seem to find them everywhere.

If you look long enough

If you look for long enough, you will find whatever you are looking for at the price you want.

Ages ago, taph and I picked up half a Tupperware meat marinater. At the time we used it to transport a turtle to a lake. It then got put in our pile of broken or partial Tupperware.

A couple of weeks ago, I found the other half at Belconnen vinnies. And they only wanted $2 for it.

It may be Red and Blue, but if I put a white chicken in it, I can claim it is a Rooster Carni-age.
