A Father’s day special: brunch at Garfish with my Dad. Plus a big happy Father’s Day to all my favourite fathers!

My Dad is in Innamincka today, having a Father’s day barbeque. I’m jealous and I wish I was going to be there later this afternoon to share a steak with him and his travelling companion (Uncle B) with Mum and Mr L, the GFD, my SIL, the super neph and the rest of our family.

At the beginning of the week it was declared (by myself) that we were going to eat as many home cooked meals during the week as possible! We’re off to a good start – tonight I made a quiche and not just any old wheat-laden wonder… tonight’s quiche, dear friends, was one hundred percent, bona fide, gluten free, and two thousand percent tasty!
