    Can’t wait to hear some of those songs (in the flesh as it were), but you can keep the jam doughnut. I like my alcohol simple – as in wine.

    Your reference to the Huntsman spider made me laugh. I too have had some hairy encounters with them ( pardon the pun ) 🙂

    I haven’t tried this form of jam donut before, looks great!

    Ew, just-hatched baby spiders are *the worst*. They’re so little, and run everywhere. I was babysitting once and one of the 10-year old boys found a bunch of spider babies and screeched, and I had to pretend to be the adult and vacuum them up. Yeeks.

    That Ethiopian food looks so great. Have you been to Fekerte’s in Canberra? That’s the last place I’ve had injera. I miss it so much! Townsville needs a good Ethiopian place, I think.

    That cocktail/shot looks really yummy, too. I made vegan irish cream once. Maybe I’ll have to make another batch for graduation celebrations in April…

    Wow that looks so PURTY if I say so mahself…

    The restaurant sounds great. Haven’t had a chance to try Ethiopian food yet. The jam doughnut sounds exactly like the thing you’d need after discovering a huntsman in your room!

    Oh No…, I have bad memories of Jam Doughnuts…. it wasn’t my fault I swear 😉 Sounds like you’ve had an awesome time of it to wear yourself out singing & a
    swayin’ – Go You Good Thing 🙂 🙂

    I’m with you on being a night owl but sleep when you are exhausted with happiness is a beautiful thing – praise the lord hallelujah!

    The Abyssinian – that’s about 300m from my house! Ah well, maybe next time…..

    I had a jam doughnut cocktail at christmas and it was scrumdiddlyumptious! 🙂
    I’ve only tried Ethiopian food a couple of times but I’ve really liked it!

    Haha whenever I tell people that the previous night I ‘was in bed before midnight’, they’re all genuinely shocked…

    I’ve been meaning to go to The Abyssinian but have never got around to it. Food looks delicious though! Ditto the jam donut. Mmmmm.

    Hallelujah! I have jam donut fixin’s in the cupboard. Whoa there Nelly, that’s some dangerous learnin. I lerve Chambord. I usually stick it in the bottom of a champagne cocktail, or it’s my go to liquer for baking. Now I have another use to contemplate…. Pity it’s late on a Sunday night. Would it look sad to drink jam donuts when you’re the only one up? Well except the dog who is staring at me in that unnerving dog-stare way.

  12. Simply Life

    ha, I can count the number of times I’ve stayed up until 11am on my 2 hands 🙂

  13. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    Chambord is one of my all time favourites.
    That is all 🙂

  14. Errign

    Welllll, I am not a Bailey’s fan, but I do like Chambord, so perhaps I need to try one of those!

    I am really surprised that I’ve never heard of the Jam Doughnut. It’s so college. But, maybe a little too classy for college. After all, it doesn’t involve vodka or orange juice.

    However, I have sampled the disgusting Dirty Girl Scout. Bailey’s, kahlua, peppermint schnapps [or several other chocolate/mint variations]. Whipped cream to the face is optional.

  16. Monique

    oh wow that sounds like something I NEED to try 🙂 also, I can assure you, I NEVER go to bed before midnight haha. Maybe that’s the reason why I can’t wake up prior to 9 a.m……

  17. penny aka jeroxie

    Oh! We have The Abyssinian here too… so delish! I need to sleep earlier…. always staying up late… bad for me. So tired the next day

  18. Agnes

    That Jam Doughnut looks… *shudder* Has it curdled??

    PS: Can’t believe walking around for a couple of hours, and two restaurant meals wore you out! Where’s your stamina? 😉

  19. Tammy

    Oh girlfriend, if you haven’t laid down your burdens at the end of that, then there’s never gonna be no light to shine. LOVE Ethiopian food with my WHOLE heart.

  20. Camille

    If my body could handle it, I would also probably never (how’s that for a string of poorly related words) go to bed before midnight. Alas, I have chosen the worst profession ever for a night owl.

  21. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    I MUST try that Jam Doughnut shot someday. Must must must. And when you come here, I know of several YOU must try: pineapple upside down cake, oatmeal cookie, and birthday cake shots, for starters.

    Also, Ethiopian food is the bomb. Fact.

    […] I already mentioned the Strange Weather Gospel Choir, Eric Dozier, and my utter glee about both in this post, but I can’t help gushing […]
