Lilianfels, Katoomba

We had a short break from the hustle and bustle of work and life, and got to stay a couple of nights in Katoomba - and it was freezing!  There was frost on the grass in the mornings, but the air was so crisp and cool it was incredibly refreshing.

One of the highlights of our trip was some afternoon tea at Lilianfels.  I couldn't quite justify $55/head for High Tea with my husband, but I could have little plates of scones, biscuits and pav!

The sitting room is so lovely and cosy, it was the perfect place to get away from the cold and to have an elegant Devonshire tea.  I think from now on, a trip to the mountains could not do without a cuppa at Lilianfels, it's definitely highly recommended.

McCain Sweet Potato SuperFries

I was lucky enough to get a sample of McCain's new range of Sweet Potato SuperFries a few weeks ago.

What did I think?

Firstly, I love sweet potato, so the product was already very appealing to me.  I was sent two types of fries - the Crinkle Cut and the Thin Cut, and I definitely like the Crinkle Cut better.  Because of the ridges, the Crinkle Cut chips end up being more crispy than the Thin Cut ones.

Secondly, they're cholesterol free (that's really good for me!).

We served the SuperFries with some sour cream and sweet chilli sauce and they were delicious.

Please go out and try them, they're definitely worth having in the freezer for that next lazy meal accompaniment!
