I love zucchini noodles.  We'd love to hear what you're making with it Marina.  I gave both my girls an upmarket spiralizer but I've only got a cheap little gadget that does the job for me.

I have a very simple one in the van and DH and I ate a lot of salads while we were away. I used it for carrot and raw beetroot each time I made a salad. I just had the vegetable scrubbed and took off what I wanted for each meal.

I've only done carrot and zucchini so far, but I have found a couple of interesting looking recipes to experiment with ... will let you know how they go (if they are successful!).

Marina, would be interested. Lacking in inspiration.

DH came home from Bunnings this morning and said I have bought you a present. I'm quite pleased with it as it is certainly needed. My old one is past had it.

I took some things to the op shop yesterday and saw a lovely cedar tall boy there .  It's in excellent condition and was at a bargain price.  I just couln't leave it there so bought it and it's now in the spare bedroom.

That sounds like a good buy. Mab.
There are lots of op shops in Ballarat and they are well patronised.
I have been taking a lot of cooking things that I no longer need to the Creswick swap.  I have to say that it is nice to see who takes what and looking so pleased with what they got.

I bought something similar this week cookie, I'd had the old one for 10 years or more!

I love tall boys Margaret, they hold so much. I've been looking in op shops around here for ages, some very good bargains to be had and I rarely come out without parting with a few dollars. A watch for $8 and a black leather belt for $3 were 2 of my best bargains.
