Ok Melbourne, you’re pretty cool.

This weekend I visited Melbourne for the first time. I haven’t seen much of it yet as I’ve been busy having fun at Supanova but what I have seen I’ve liked.

For starters the coffee shop across from my hotel was open at 6 on Saturday morning. If I’m up at that time I definitely want coffee. Woolworths was also open, which was a great help for acquiring snacks for the day, but even better it was still open at 9pm when I was returning to my hotel and wanted to grab something I could take to my hotel room to eat. I’ve meet a bunch of people who have been happy to point me in the right direction when i’ve been a little lost.

I must say I’m looking forward to exploring more of the city today with a couple of friends before I fly home. I’m definitely looking forward to finding some cool food. I’m also sure I will be back some time to explore even further.

Today I am sharing my lemon curd recipe. I love lemon curd and you just can’t beat the home made stuff. the recipe makes around 3 cups of curd.
