Lately the kids have been taking warm meals to school in their Thermos's. Yesterday was pumpkin soup, today it's homemade baked beans. I own and love The Cooks Companion by Stephanie Alexander and use her recipe. It's online for any of you that don't own her book.
I'm donning jackets and scarves every day before I leave the house but the kid's thermostat must be better than mine. They are happy just wearing jumpers and only grab their jackets if it's raining.

Anyway back to the wintry weather. I found this calender on the Bureau of Meteorology Site. It covers the seasons, taking into account the solstices etc. The also have a calender that covers indigenous weather knowledge but it doesn't cover all of Australia and sadly doesn't have one for my area of the state.
And I can't.. stop.. eating.. fresh bread with spicy plum sauce (bought at the farmer's market) and local (expensive) goats cheese! Yuumm! I get hungrier in the cooler weather.
I hope you are keeping warm and cosy!
