Food Affair and a winner

How was your weekend?

 We had a lovely weekend.

On Friday I made a start on my Easter craft,
(should have it done by Thursday) .

On Saturday I was very productive, 
I cleaned and I baked my way through the day.

I did eat a lot too,
someone had to taste test : ) 

On Sunday we had a very social day,

after church we stopped by the Eater Family Festival
held in Robertson Park.

The festival is an event put on by the combined churches of Orange and everything on the day is free of charge.

It is a great way for the community to get together and celebrate Easter.

Across the road in the North court of the Gallery was our annual FOOD Affair.

Orange holds food week every year and the last event is the Food Affair held on Sunday afternoon.

It is a great opportunity to sample the local produce from the many food and wine stallholders as well as meet the people who grow or make it.

Entertainment and Cooking demonstrations also feature throughout the day.


The weather was lovely and the crowd was fantastic.

I didn't get to sample the wines however the food was excellent and I had a great time wandering around and catching up with people we know as well as enjoying the sunshine!

Now the moment you have all been waiting for.....

 the winner of the Tote bag is......

 the lovely Lisa from Ledamae!

Congratulations Lisa, flick me an email with your address and I will post the bag out to you ASAP.

(I used the random org generator to select the winner
but I don't know how to get the image on my blog!)

Thank you to everyone who left a comment

I hope you all have a great week!
