The Perfect Feast For Every Weekend Activity
These days, food is more than just survival; it’s a way to bring people together from all walks of life. Cooking or sharing a meal with friends, family and loved ones teaches us about community, happiness, culture, celebration and so much more. It really is one of the greatest joys in life.
Which is why, at Stockland Wetherill Park, we have you covered when it comes to planning a weekend filled with delicious food. From morning tea with your closest friends, to afternoon picnics in the park or a wine and cheese filled Sunday night, our fresh food retailers can help you plan the perfect feast for every one of your weekend activities.
Ladies High Tea
High tea isn’t always about English Breakfast tea and eight different types of jam. These days, a modern high tea with your closest girlfriends is a chance to debrief about your job, your partner, your children, your in-laws and so much more. It’s also the perfect opportunity to enjoy some delicious treats! Firstly, set the scene by getting out your ‘special’ china or servingware; we love this beautiful teacup and saucer from Bed Bath N’ Table. Add some decorative ornaments like a vase with flowers and then you’re ready for the food. For tasty pastries, head to Baker’s Delight and stock up on croissants, scones and scrolls. Next, you can’t go wrong with some fruit flans from Caruso Patisserie and these gingerbread biscuits from Trim’s Fresh are the perfect accompaniment to your tea or coffee. Let the girl talk begin!
Afternoon Picnic In The Park
As the weather starts to cool down, we are blessed with many simple pleasures. The sunsets seem more vibrant, we fill our home with candles and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate at night. In Australia, our winters are mostly beautiful clear days without a cloud in the sky. So even though the air is a little crisper, an afternoon picnic in the park is the perfect weekend activity to share with friends. This weekend, why not grab a couple of your closest mates and head to your local park? Start the feast with some beautiful fresh seafood from ZAG Seafood and make sure you pack everyone’s favourite: a roast chicken and bread rolls. A visit toChicken Mart and Baker’s Delight will have everything you need. Whip up a quick side salad with ingredients from Trim’s Fresh and there you have it! Now sit back, relax and take in that magical sunset.
Wine & Cheese Night
There are few things that just go together in life. Peaches and cream, fish and chips, tea and biscuits. But of all the perfect pairings, one of our favourite foodie combinations has to be wine and cheese. This Sunday, opt for a chilled-out night with a handful of your closest friends and family. Listen to music, watch a movie or just enjoy each others company as you graze on a platter filled with all your favourite tasty treats. Putting together a beautiful cheese board is almost an art form these days, but a trip to Trim’s Fresh will make the whole process easy. Grab a selection of hard and soft cheeses, dips, nuts, colourful fresh fruit, deli meats and an assortment of crackers. A pull-apart loaf from Baker’s Delight is also fantastic for sharing and of course, make sure you have plenty of red and white wine on hand. It’s the perfect end to a wonderful weekend of feasting!
