Winter nom-noms and rediscovered photos

Somehow I forgot to process some photos I took a few weeks back. They were still sitting in the "Photos to sort" folder on my desktop, and the wintry weather today gave me a good excuse to go through them. Here are some of my favourites:

On an unrelated note, oven-baked kumara fries are a delicious winter food. Here is how you make them:

  • Scrub the kumara, and chop off any funny looking parts or growths;
  • Leave the rest of the skin on;
  • Chop it into fries about 1cm x 1cm;
  • Spray some oil on a tray;
  • Place a layer of kumara fries;
  • Spray again with some oil.
Cook at 200°C for about 15-20 minutes, turning occasionally. Kumara is less dense than potato, so you don't need to pre-cook.

All you need is a little salt, sumac, or sauce to serve. Freakin' awesome.

I'd show you a picture, but we ate them all!


  1. I love those plants in the first picture! We have those here too and I never resist the chance to take a picture of them! I don't know what they're called though!

  2. I don't know what they are either! But they are really pretty.
