i love driving through the Lindis Pass. -
maybe because it’s so far from cell phone range. or maybe because it’s usually greets the start of many anticipated road trips. or perhaps it’s because it’s hilly + windy + makes you feel tucked away where no one can find you. -
regardless, it’s special. the mountain slopes take your breath away, and the color of the grass really pops in early morning hours.
just don’t forget to keep your hands on the steering wheel. #starehard#10and2
With so many lemons on my tree right now, I thought I’d give preserving lemons a go
Salt and lemons.. top up with more lemon juice and leave for a month in a dark cupboard.
I’ve used them before when making middle eastern type dishes. I know there’s a specific type of lemon generally used but google assures me that I can use my backyard ones and get a similar result (hopefully).
Today we are celebrating the efforts of Māori Businesses in Aotearoa which is something im so passionate about!
Being a Māori business ourselves has opened our eyes to so many more important aspects which we all share. TE REO MĀORI ME ONA TIKANGA. Now we don't just speak our language, we can also wear it or decorate our homes with te reo to help support and revitalise our language and help it become more common. It also helps those whanau who live overseas to somehow connect with their roots while abroad. Ka rawe!
I would like to thank @tukau_legacy @hinecollection@taputapu and @skincaretemana for gracing me with their awesome Māori products. We follow you all and can totally relate with the ups and downs of business, busy family and community life and more. I applaud you all for your efforts towards our culture and in business! Ngā mihi tino nui kia koutou katoa. Kia kaha, kia maia, kia manawanui na Te Whanau a Kairawhiti Miere Ltd
