Well...it turns out that I wasn't going to forget to watch the Melbourne Cup yesterday! I ended up going to a family member's house...just for nibbles mind...and to watch the race!
Her idea of catering is always food, food and more food, and yesterday was no exception! For starters there was biscuits and dip (corn relish and cream cheese...yum!) and then there were six different types of nibblies (including but not limited to sausage rolls, party pies, chicken chips) followed by roast pork, scalloped potatoes, salad and bread, and then finishing with a choice of six different desserts, and then chocolates! Just nibblies.
Anyway, we ended up watching quite a few of the races, including the big one! We had a sweep for the Melbourne Cup - and I won! Only $14 but it's the principal. It's not every day that you can go somewhere and eat, and come home with more money than you started with!
