Made this popular oldie from CP today after going through all my soup printouts. I made the full quantity but somehow I must have put too much water in so Iíll have to drink it from a mug which is fine by me.

I hope your team have a win cookie. You had more confidence in my team than I did, glad it was a Crows home match and not ours as Iíd not enjoyed that match at all.

Today I took my old Hoover upright to vacuum DDís MILís place as I hated her pull along model. The result was quite obvious, mine had way more suction than hers so it coped so much better with the cat hair.  I told her she could have it as I upgraded my Dyson last week and now have 2 of them. Helped her change her bed and brought her sheets home here to wash. Her 6 week check up is on Friday, she should get the all clear to do more and get back to driving. She still needs an op on her foot and the other knee done when she feels ready to go again.

It sounds like a fun group Chookie.

Wow, youíre really getting into it Chookie - much like I did when I was in the same position as you. 12 Probus groups in Ballarat, thatís a lot of clubs!  Did you choose the closest or did you know someone who attended one?

Yesterday I made a cabbage soup from the forum, I used to enjoy it but it was horrible so I threw it out. Also made a smoked cod mornay which I loved last time I made it but that also didnít taste any good so binned that too. With the last of the 1/4 cabbage which was given to me I made cabbage hash browns, I enjoyed that last time too and yes, youíve guessed it - in the bin after the first slice.  I enjoyed the afternoon of cooking so was so disappointed that it was all a waste of money and time. Iíll have a break for now then you can bet Iíll get back into trying things again.

Itís hard to understand Medicare rules cookie. When I had my last bone scan, although the results were OK the girl said that I qualify for 2 yearly scans. Not sure why, something to do with having radiation perhaps?

Halfway through my commitment to check in on my DDís MIL every day since her knee replacement. It sure fills my days and thereís less downtime for me but I enjoy being useful to someone and it is appreciated.  She tells me to sit down and read a book whilst she showers but I tell her I prefer to do some jobs, in real life that wouldnít be the case but thatís what Iím there for.

So much to do and see up there K Atie, on the go all day can be tiring but itís fun and good for the soul.

Canít wait to see your new garden beds full of plants Chookie and I bet the bay tree gifts are appreciated. I would have grabbed one if I lived near you. I have plenty of dried ones from a neighbourís Mum whose street is lined with them. Wish the council would plant more of them instead of those deciduous trees they seem to prefer in some of the older areas.

Enjoy your break K Atie, it will be so nice to get away from our southern winter.

Recipe Requests / Re: Powder or liquid for washing machine

Yes we do have a washing machine powder thread Marina, quite a few pages to read but youíll get a laugh along the way

Excellent, thanks Chookie.

Iím going to make a batch for myself Chookie, a lot of the soups I make seem to be lacking flavour (probably totally my fault due to damaged taste buds) so perhaps this would give them the boost I need. How much would you add to a 4 serve soup recipe please?

Condiments and Sauces / Re: 2 ingredient Sate sauce

Thanks Chookie, I checked this lady out and ended up downloading her free 6 ingredient (or less) Stonesoup app. A lot of browsing there to do when I have the time.  Must try that easy satay sauce recipe over pasta, I can only tolerate a little heat so a squirt of sweet chilli sauce should do it for me.

Thatís a bit unfair of your customer Marina, I would have thought customer service would have been the most important thing. The site I was referring to for Nagiís fansí comments all use their name and you have the usual love and dislikes of the recipes. Sometimes I think it may be user error though, she certainly gives plenty of notes and substitutes to make following her recipes easy but some people donít bother to read it all.
