Prawn and asparagus risotto, used the seafood Cookidoo recipe. It used 400 rice but I only did 300 , then I ended up with a wet risotto but is was nice and today it will have absorbed it all . Ready for lunch today or the freezer if DH wonít eat it . Finding it hard to please everyone re meals , I love food and cooking ,but need lots of smiling faces thatís its more than a basic meal ! Oh well Iíll keep trying .

Chookie you are doing an amazing job , do the hospital do an at home service ? As in can they come and assist with Ral as part of the at home hospital care , always ask itís a great help . Means the medical side is attended to and you can concentrate on Ral .
Take care Margret .

Easy quince jelly ! Used 6 small quinces at a slow boil for 3 hours . Slotted spoon to remove quince and drizzle Liquid over the rest into a couple of jars . Smells so good . Now DH has a very Luxurious desert and I have delicious quince jelly .

So pleased your back in the kitchen Chookie . Maybe we could start up a Netflix suggestion . Weeded the neglected vegetable garden , DS turned the soil over added some vegetable compost to fill them up and had DS turn it over again . I did a bit of the soil work seems I might have pulled a tummy muscle but all good now . Pruned a rose and took out the some dead head of the agapanthus. Tomorrow I must get the bay leaves and put leaves all over the top soil so the kittens keep off it . Cleaned the filters on the two  split air con heaters . Gosh no wonder they were not working properly, seems I am very stupid as I took the filters outside and brushed them down should have worn a mask! Now hard to breath , but getting better as well . DH has to meet a grain truck very early every morning this week ! No sleep ins here.
