firsts and seconds

It was a weekend of firsts:

1st day of April and for about the first time ever I didn't get pranked. I'm pretty gullible and therefore fair game for April fool's jokes but somehow I made it through this year unscathed.

We met friends for lunch at a new cafe in Leichhardt called Wellco which I haven't been to before and which was lovely. Their bacon and egg wrap is pretty special.

 I got up really early on Sunday morning despite gaining a whole hour's worth of sleep from the end of daylight savings. I'm still puzzling over that one.

A big first - I made a birthday cake for my Dad which was pretty much sugar free. It featured my old favourite, black beans (I'm becoming the poster girl for beans lately) and was a surprise hit. Rich as all get out, but yet we still all had seconds. Here is the recipe if you're interested. I'd recommend keeping an eye on the cooking time though, I think mine was a wee bit overcooked.  Excellent with some yogurt and tart berries.

Hope you all had a terrific weekend and a lovely start to April.
