Tangent: Decent Nosh in Sydney

It's no secret that I'm a fan of a decent meal. What falls into the category 'decent' and 'meal' definitely varies depending on the severity of need, my mood and who I might be with (read: trying to impress). Generally, I love discovering places myself and being able to take near and dear somewhere they might not know about yet. I love trying signature dishes, especially if it involves an ingredient/combination I haven't had before.

So I thought I would share some of the blogs I find new spots to try out. Below are tried and true awesome blogs that post both recipes, events and reviews. Of course, Sydney isn't that big a town, so there's always some overlap, especially when something *extra* awesome opens up/updates their menu. But if you're ever short of ideas for your next meal and are a little sick of the queues that come with places listed in the SMH cafe guide/AGFG etc, then why not try these locals picks...

Tangent: Smart Girls At The Party

Amy Poehler is one of the funniest women out.You know she's funny coz she produces Parks and Rec and is friends with Tina Fey and featured in Mean Girls with her. She runs Smart Girls At The Party. The whole idea is to provide an online space for girls to grow positively, without being fake. It's a great effort, something we should see more of. There's even a space for boys to grow positively too. Check it out if you know anyone young (or young at heart).

Tangent: CrossFit

Confession time: I do crossfit. I train at CrossFit Kuring Gai.

 Not everyone who does CrossFit looks like this (but a lot of the serious ones do):
