So we decided to go for breakfast at the new Mt Wellington Mc Donalds…..

Flagged it when there was far too many people there and the parking was crap. Decided to go to Lunn ave Mc Donalds but got to counter and a new guy was on and hadn’t a clue what was going on, walked out and drive to the Greenlane Mc Donalds and ended up having something there, coffee was the highlight and the drive and chat was the best. Thank you Julie for the company ❀

Dinner Time

Hope you all had a good Christmas.

We decided to go south and have some takeaways at Papakura on boxing day however it was closed πŸ™ never mind we thought….. Let’s head to Karaka as there is a good fish n chip shop to have some nice takeaways! not so as they had been closed… Never fair Kingseat takeaways is just down the road we will go to that shop….. not bloody so as that was closed… Okay that’s all good as we are on holidays and we will just drive until we find something, mind you I suggested a takeaways shop atΒ Waiuku…. Traveled to this and yep you guessed it closed! In the main street we found a place booming with business, I wonder why…. We ordered and went to a place I used to have a cache hiding and ate there, it was nice.

Headed off and on the way back we went to Glenbrook for a drive and stretched our legs!

Β enjoyed the drive and of course the company πŸ™‚

Meadowbank Pizzeria Visit

My darling husband suggested we have a Xmas treat and have beef lasagnes from this amazing place. We usually go once a fortnight to stay within our budgets. However it’s Xmas time and the owners advised us last week that they would be going back to Italy for most of January. Hence my lovely husband suggesting we have this again to get our fix before the drought that will be January!

Imagine our surprise when they presented us with a large ham and cheese pizza as ANOTHER Xmas gift. We were delighted and have decided that we will not bother going anywhere else for takeout food as these guys are the BEST!


Christmas Garlic Pizza

The wife and I went for our take out this evening and when we went to pick up our regular order the owner greeted us with a Merry Christmas and gave us garlic pizza for Christmas, what a surprise so friendly and a fantastic place for authentic Italian pizza a pasta. Meadowbank Pizzeria πŸ˜†πŸ•πŸThank you for dinner Julie.😘



If your in the area we highly recommend this place they are honestly fantastic and well well worth the visit.

Thank You

Thank you to my wife for the dinner on Monday night at Denny’s.

It was my birthday so we enjoyed the following day together as I had to work so the Monday was great with the start of a great meal that night then off for two days πŸ™‚ Julie’s turn next week πŸ™‚ Looking forward to it babe.

Meadowbank Pizzeria

So we have been going on a regular basis to the next door Charcoal Burger takeaway in the past however we have since now been going to the Meadowbank Pizza takeaway, we haven’t had any pizza’s yet however the wife has been having the Beef Lasagne.

I also decided last night to have the same and what a fantastic meal. $20.00 per Lasagne but well worth it as it does two meals… (lunch today)

They heat them up in the oven far better than most that do it in a microwave so the little wait is well worth it πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ The site is Meadowbank Pizzeria

Mercer Visit

So we slept in (day off) πŸ˜€ and we thought why not go to Mercer, to the local cafe as I was talking with a customer at work and he suggested if we like a good cafe meal go here as it’s great food.

We ended up getting to Mercer without too much traffic although the other side of the motorway had the NZ Police on it directing traffic! No such thing on the way back though:D

Ended up having the deluxe breakfast with the famous Pokeno bacon, egg, toast etc with coffee, and Julie had eggs benedict with bacon. The bacon was not cooked well at all, along with my eggs, it’s a pity we have lots of food outlets in Auckland and not cheap ones as this meal was almost $40.00 and yet it wasn’t the greatest we thought, each to their own I guess but we thought we really should have gone to Denny’s πŸ™‚ The drive however was fun and of course the company was the best πŸ™‚


Looking Forward!

Sunday is our takeaways night so we are looking forward to going to have Middle Eastern tonight, love this!

Happy Fathers day to all you dad’s out there! Hope you all have a great day/night. Thank you to my Sister and Mum for thew Fathers Day wishes I guess they know that today is just another day to me…… Enough said!

Tomorrow night we are also looking forward to going out to dinner at Denny’s yes you guessed it! We love this place don’t we Julie……. It will be fours years since we met so why not celerbrate with going out to dinner oh and it’s our Friday so even better πŸ˜€

Might end up going for a drive tonight around the bays as we usually do this at times and with the weather being great and it being lighter in the evenings now it’s even better. I have to say I’mlooking forward to day light saving πŸ™‚
