cheesy spinach slow cooker dip - The Hungry Mum

The Hungry Mum Out & About: Adelaide and South Australia

24 Sep

I have *the* best mum-in-law in the world. So many people have strained or difficult relationships with their mother-in-law but I’ve been really blessed to score such a wonderful, generous, intelligent woman. Recently she organised a weekend away in Adelaide for the Hungry Dad & myself AND babysitting! Yes, it was a child-freeImageree break and it was fab! Must see places [for those planning a trip] include Chapel Hill vineyard, Woodside Cheese, Shaw & Smith vineyard, Adelaide Central Markets [farmers market that is huge & full of lovely stuff. Sydney could do well to emulate it] and the gorgeous German village of Hahndorf. Making a good thing even better was the chance to catch up with the beautiful Rebecca Dettman, AKA @MissPsychette.
