Entertainment books 2014/2015

So you guys would know by now that I’m a big big fan of the Entertainment book, using it when I can to save on restaurant bills and trying to beat my previous record of 14 restaurants from the Gold card (has anyone gotten higher than this? TimmyC said that it was a poor effort on my behalf). I usually save the cost of the book (ACT book $60.00) after eating at two restaurants and it is how I find out about a lot of new places to eat, so it is a no brainer that I get one (and I already have!).

This year my friends are selling books to help raise funds for a local Canberra woman Narelle Raftery who was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2013, through fundraising efforts they hope to relieve her financial burden (treatment and pills are expensive!) so she can focus on getting better. So if you haven’t bought a book yet, please consider buying one from them. You can find the link below.

The 2013/14 Entertainment™ Book is expires on 1 June 2014! Make sure you contact us to secure your 2014|2015 Membership before they sell out! So many amazing offers are waiting for you! Click this link to buy your Membership TODAY! https://www.entertainmentbook.com.au/orderbooks/914981n

This year they have two options: the traditional paper book or the digital version which can be shared across four devices (for all those who forget their book at home).

I have gone crackers for cheese platters

So this is my fourth cheese platter in a week. I must be loving my cheese or overly social- maybe both! Yum! Today’s cheese platter occasion is for the ‘Big Cake Bake’ in support of the Australian Red Cross (I made Portugese tarts« will post about later, the cheese is for my savoury side).

What’s on the board: strawberries, crackers, cabanossi, olives, South cape fruit and almond cheese, Jindi triple cream Brie, Mersey valley club vintage cheddar and Maggie Beer’s quince paste.

Great to see an Australian triple cream brie as I’ve been eating lots of French ones. This big 500g baby was only $12.99 @ Costco!

Other things to try:

Maggie Beer Spiced Pear paste + Mersey Valley vintage cheddar– my friend got me hooked onto this combo! So evil but so good!

Red seedless grapes– currently imported from the US but they are oh so sweet

French Triple cream brie– available @ the Fyshwick delicatessens, a bit more expensive but very good

A good dessert wine– loving the Brown Brother’s whole wine collection!
