Thanks Mab and Chookie.A SPC bulk store sounds like my type of place. DD eats a lot of tiny fruits in her lunch and always has fruit on her cereal at breakfast. It has got so expensive. I needed a big tin of fruit this morning and it was $4.30.

I made them a bit bigger Judy but I did get lots. Mine could have done with a bit more browning.

I often wonder how ticklish feet go at the podiatrist.

After a very hot weekend it has been lovely here. The weekend is heating up though.

Made Mayo with garlic and Rosemary flavoured olive oil.
Also pocket bread but the yeast must be stale as they didnít puff up. Will eat them as flat bread.

No one will be any the wiser Chookie. I made some peanut biscuits yesterday. I will pop the link and photo up when I go back to my ipad.

I have rum and Chiver's Regal in my booze stock. Our neighbours don't drink so keep running over with bottles they are given. I use if for cooking. I open the bottle, use what I need and then freeze it in 1 cup lots. I rarely drink nowadays and DH bottlesd his own beer, making it about 1/4 strength. DD doesn't drink at all either.

Judy DD has said that we will be given Pfizer as our booster shots. Her first one didn't bother her at all.

A fantastic haul Judy.
Chookie I love that idea. My SIL is having a shoulder replacement on 15th. They live about 45 minutes drive away but it is all through other suburbs. I could make a few of those each time I go out and my brother could bake them fresh biscuits. He can cook but it is basically grill and plain veggies. I said I would take them a casserole etc every couple of weeks. Their son lives quite close to them and DIL will be on holidays so I am sure they will help out. Is there a special recipe you use ?

We had pot luck from the freezer. It turned out to be lasagne, spaghetti bolognaise and some cauliflower cheese.

That sounds lovely Judy. It was rather hot here again but the paddock where the gymkhana was held had trees on the edge. We had lots of fun, suffered a few bruises and rope burns and D H has sore arm muscles trying to drive the old Ute round the courses.

The Ute. It’s called Frank after a close friend who originally sold all the bits to DH.
This involved pegging out the washing as fast as you could without dropping the washing or the pegs, then you had to turn around and bring it all in.
This was a hard one. The driver had to drive round in a circle, the passenger (me) had to hold the rope, keeping the bucket off the ground at the same time not holding the rope past a knot they had put in it. It was hard for DH to keep in a perfect circle and the rope moved in your hands a lot in keeping the bucket off the ground. All activities were against the clock.
We loved it.
In all the activities the vehicle had to keep moving at all times. There were other activities but we weren’t photographed doing them.

Cakes / Orange Biscuits.

Orange Biscuits
These are very tasty. I’ve decided to pop recipes in here as well as on “what are you cooking.” It makes the recipe so much easier to find.

It isn’t a thermomix recipe but is made in a food processor.

You are certainly very industrious. Iím not. Itís been 36 here today. A bit hard to take. We have a run tomorrow into a paddock, where they will hold a car gymkhana. I hope the paddock has trees.

Thatís wonderful Judy. I found that the dietician I was sent to when I was told about my diabetes was utterly useless. DD said she could refer me to good ones but things are going well enough.
