Cookie, that is a good idea. Any over could go in the GC lunch boxes.

Boo, thanks for that.   Yes I can eat the green part of spring onions and also chives. I compensate for onion by adding lots of fresh herbs.
Marina, you can purchase an App for FODMAP. I have it on my iPad. Very handy , well presented and very easy to use. There are also spin offs available that suggest substitutes.

It has turned quite cool again. Occasional showers. Nice in the garden though.
Thousands at fun run. Also provision for walkers.
Obbie, that is a lot of prep for a boat license. Very important to be properly prepared.

I still canít get on to Tapatalk.

Are you doing FODMAPS Chookie?
Marina, sort of. I watched the Catalys program and it would seem that I have a slight FODMAP issue but my main problem with onion, apples and artificial sweeteners is that reaction happens too quickly to be a bowel problem. More an intolerance.

Oops, fun run today.

I need some suggestions. DD belongs to a group of woman cyclists. Once a month they do a ride and end up at a coffee shop for morning tea. In a couple of week it is her turn to organise the ride. They will finish the ride at her house. She has organised a Coffee Van and has asked if I will cater for about 20. I will have to prepare most food the day before. Any suggestions would be greatfully received.

Cool again here today.

CC, I was also thinking of Judy winning that competition but thought it was mushroom crepes.
Bought some lemons at the Farmers Market. Expensive , but the size of oranges and no pips. Might make a Lemon Delicious Pud.

Love there little free plants. Found some self seeded parsley today.

Baby artichokes picked today. Have only ever had those in the jar. Reading up how to prepare them.
Bought 4 tomato plants today. Wonít be planting them out until mid November.
Have started picking snow peas and the broad beans are covered in flowers.

Planted out a dwarfed Bay tree today and looking for a good hot spot for a fig tree.

Last night DD came for dinner. I made sea food crepes.
I had leftover smoked salmon, leftover salmon dip, ( made in TMX), and prawns. I also added cooked Asparagus. Rolled in crepes and covered in a little cream and then sprinkled with a mix of Parmesan cheese and Panko bread crumbs.
Also cooked very large pot of Swiss chard and purťed it in TMX with nutmeg and a little butter.
Should have taken photo, looked magnificent.
For sweets, Trifle made with lady finger biscuits, soaked in Blackberry liquor (made in TMX), then cooked Pears   Then Cream.

Today, rolled stuffed skirt steak, cooked on stand in Slow cooker.
Have picked baby artichokes from garden so will cook these also.

Another lovely mild day coming up. More time in veggie garden.

Mab, Iíll bet that GD folio did cause a stir. Great that she is stepping outside the box.

Creswick Farmers Market today.

Marina, what a good idea. Never heard of this programme. Who organises it?

Big fun run in Ballarat this Sat. Nearly everyone in Ballarat is involved. Money raised is for Childrenís ward of local hospital.

Chooks laying like mad. Might make a Frittata to go with salads.
I give quite a lot of eggs away. I swap eggs and Rhubarb tarts for chook food from SIL.
I give a  neighbour eggs as he brings our rubbish bin in if we are not home. He told me that he saves our fresh eggs for eating and the bought ones for baking.
DD also gets eggs as difficult to feed skinny GS Eats 4 for breakfast at the weekends.
Free Range eggs are $10 a dozen here at the moment.
