After a couple of really hot days it was quite nice here today. I expect it may warm up though with the cyclone up north. It usually does.

Chit Chat / What's for Dinner Tonight?

We had a recipe from Amanda's blog tonight. It was lovely. I didn't use all puréed pumpkin, I roasted some and puréed half of it. http://www.lambsearsandhoney.com/2018/02/lambs-ears-another-birthday-celebrating-pumpkin-thyme-chicken-spinach-pasta-recipe/

Feeling lazy tonight so decided to go into town to get burger and chips.  Very disappointed, it seems that I have lost the 'taste' for burgers, and I used to really enjoy them.  Ah well, I guess that is good for me but not so good next time I am feeling lazy!

Astarra, what is the continuous brew method?

I'm hopeless at explaining things, but basically its where you brew the kombucha in a jar with a spigot/spout, and then just bottle out 3/4 of the brew each week (or whenever its ready) and add the next lot of sweet tea into the top. Saves having to handle the scoby until it gets too thick (like mine is atm  :-)) ) and also less disturbance of the bacteria etc.
Miss7 loves to drink it straight from the brewing jar, with the spout she just gets a cup and helps herself :)

I make my next batch in the thermomix jug, heat about 500ml water and dissolve about 3/4-1C sugar, then steep the tea (I use 4 black tea bags + 2 green tea bags) 10 minutes or so, squeeze out and remove teabags, then top up the TM jug with cold filtered water to bring the temp down, then pour it into the brewing jar carefully.
Mine is an 8L brewing jar. ;D

Thanks, Astarra.  That sounds like a good method.  I might try using tea bags next time, much easier than tea leaves.

I made this tomato sauce from Bron http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=813.0 to use up some very ripe roma tomatoes.  Added a zucchini and red capsicum instead of green. Will freeze in 1 cup quantities to use in different meals.

From the freezer, apricot chicken, mashed potato, cauli-au-gratin and roasted pumpkin cubes.  All I have to do is heat it all up.

Reading this makes me extra thankful to live down here in Tassie - our fruit trees get mainly left alone - the odd piece of fruit may get a bird peck it or a grub invade it, but in general, we get to eat the fruit our trees produce.  :)
I can't begin to understand the devastation you ladies get  :'(  Your fruit  :'(
