time to say goodbye, slightly emotional

No phone for about a month and exams --> no pictures for a while
Here is my catch up
Kalgoorlie is beautiful - a very large sky
I will miss the sky most
And the spring storms - one week of 38C heat with thunderstorms and pouring rain each night for two weeks - lovely!
and giant hail stones

Wake up again and beautiful clear blue skies

Cooking with Sarah:
Roast pork
How to get this amazing result?
1. Get a rolled loin of pork from your butcher and make sure they score the rind for you.
2. Rub it all over with olive oil - lots of olive oil. Massage it right in. We also stuffed the middle with fennel seeds and sage.
3. Pile about 1/4 cup salt onto your hand and massage it into the rind. It sounds like a lot but you need it
4. Squeeze over the juice of half a small lemon
5. Put into an extremely hot oven - try 250C if you can
6. Roast for 30 mins at this hot temp - the skin should blister and bubble and turn crackly already
7. Turn down the oven and roast for the rest of the time at 180C
Roast for 1 hour per kg - perfect!
We served it with roasted apples - delicious
