Quick Bites: 22 August

Mixed Bag: a bit o’ this, a bit o’ that, a lot of food

Quick Bites on a Saturday? What’s up with that? I swear I had every intention of doing it Friday afternoon. Then I remembered it was Mojito Friday. So that’s what’s up with that.

In the spirit of my current state, I present you with a mixed-up mish mash of what’s on in foodie land next week. I’m going to go find something greasy to eat and hope that you’ll forgive me.

1. Make some kitty cupcakes. It’s the RSPCA Cupcake Day on Monday. Cupcake Day? Please, every day in my house is cupcake day. This one actually means something though-all proceeds raised from selling, eating, and baking cupcakes goes to help the good people at the RSPCA. Get creative with decorating (think paw print icing shapes, protruding licorice whiskers), put them out at work with a collection tin, then watch those babies fly.

2. See Daddy Di Bella in action. Ok, so maybe Daddy Di Bella won’t be there. Maybe Daddy Di Bella is just a figment of my imagination and doesn’t actually exist (how cool if he did though-I picture a sweet old dude bearing pastries and lattes). But, the House of Di Bella will be on display for all to see next Saturday 29/8. It’s the coffee kings’ Open Day at their Bowen Hills factory, where Italian food, barista demonstrations, and entertainment will be among the activities. Entry is a gold coin donation to the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation. Get amongst the bean action from 8am to 3pm, or visit www.dibellacoffee.com.au for more info.

3. Don’t spill on your new threads. I like food. I like fashion. Unforunately for me, the two don’t mix. Whenever I wear something new and pretty, I spill food on it. Actually, I genereally spill food on myself no matter what I have on. If you’re not like me, get along to one of the QueensPlaza Morning Teas, an event of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival. Along with some fancy grub you’ll be privvy to fashion showings, Schwarzkopf style forcasts, and make-up advice from a Napoleon Perdis Key Make-up Artists. The Morning Teas are hosted by The Courier Mail’s Elizabeth Clarke, and are on next Wednesday 26/8 and Thursday 27/8 at 10am in City Hall. Tickets are $48 through www.qtix.com.au. Visit www.mbff.com.au for more information, and think about wearing a bib.
