That's terrible, Chookie - knowing who did it and their circumstances must be really upsetting for you.  At least when all our fruit gets stripped off the trees we know it was the birds and that is acceptable (barely!), but the previous owners doing it is truly horrible.

My one puny wee tomato plant is also going nuts and one of my colleagues at work has more tomatoes than he knows what to do with!  He gave me some today so I am making a panzanella salad tonight.

I'll look forward to hearing how you get on with the kombucha.  Let me know what recipe you follow!  I would love to know the nutritional break down of the drink as well.

Oww - I don't envy you your knee operation, but it is really, really amazing what they can do now and I am sure it will be successful.

Just finished my week's cooking spree, now it's on to my monthly accounts for the business.

Warming up here - 30 at the moment and I can't put the ceiling fan on because it blows all my papers around  >:(

Today made Mushroom stroganoff, Cashew butter (I needed it for the stroganoff), my weekly kombucha, roast veg fritatta and an old Quirky Jo recipe, Tofu, Vegetables and Cashews with Coconut Satay Sauce and Coconut Rice (except the original recipe calls for chicken, not tofu ... that's my adaptation!).  I used to make this recipe every second week for quite a while, then didn't make it again for ages - this is the first time for years since I last made it.

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.
