So the big day of the Consider The Sauce/Footscray Food Blog Spring Picnic finally arrived … would anyone turn up? Or would too many?
Neither, of course – just a really nice crew of friends, loyal blog followers, food fans and a fellow blogger, too.
The rain stayed away, but it was cool – though not to the point of discomfort.
Bennie and I loved meeting folks.
Ms Baklover brought some criminally delicious pastries from the South American Bakery in Sunshine.
Yours truly fronted with a beetroot salad and another of eggplant and tomato.
Best of all, Andy from Krapow fame rocked up with a big pot of Thai-style chicken rice and a tangy condiment.
Count on another Spring Picnic next year – almost certainly later in the year, but not too close to the festive season.
Thanks for coming!
