This afternoon I have been blanching and freezing beans.  They are producing faster than we can eat them.  Our tomatoes are not doing much though so looks like I will be buying some to make chutney this year.

DS is cooking steaks on the bbq for himself and DH.  I will have some left over chicken pasta.  Salads as well.

Judy, your garden looks lovely.

I had my hair cut this morning and did some washing when I came home.

I did some washing and then a little bit of  ironing.  GS called in at lunch time and ate his lunch with us.

Thanks Chookie, we eat fairly plainly here as that is what the family like.  I do try out other dishes at times and they just have to eat what I cook.  Because there are a lot of things I can't eat I tend to go more vegetable type dishes.

DD came yesterday and brought Italian take away so we are having the left overs tonight.  I ate mine for lunch as that seems better for me.

Chookie, thank you for the bread info.  I did measure the ingredients in the tmx so have just compared the weight of the water in the tmx against my kitchen scales.  550g in the tmx and 570 on the kitchen scales.  As the flour was also weighed on the tmx (I'm out of flour until tomorrow) I can't check that.    I won't give up and will try again on another day.

2 trifles.  A large one to send home to DSIL tomorrow and a small one for us.   I'll add a photo tomorrow after I add the cream.

A creamy tuna mornay, some for dinner tonight and some for DD work lunch.  She is coming for a visit tomorrow.

I made a Malt Loaf today.

I also tried to make the Portuguese Bread as well.  What a disaster that was.  I ended up with a big wet sloppy sticky mess.  It looked like there was too much water and I was careful with the measurements.  I was doubtful about it after the 40 min hydration time.  After a 2 hour rise it was still wet and sticky and just ran all over the baking tray.  I still cooked it but all it did was glue itself to the tray.  The birds are now having a feast on the back lawn, I'm sure they will all have indigestion after eating it.  I didn't bother to take a photo as it was such a disaster.

Cornflake cookies yesterday.  Today it was zucchini slice for dinner and blanching and freezing beans, they are producing faster than we can eat them.

Chookie, good news that your A/C is finally fixed.

One of the local candidates  passed away just after the last election so we have had to vote again.  We walked up to the centre, did our voting and walked home again.  It's wasn't a long walk but far enough when you are not fit.

Buying fruit and veg are a bit hit and miss these days.  I bought a bag of potatoes last week, 2 were rotten and 2 were full of black marks. 

We are having bbq meat patties for the men and vegetable patties for me  with stir fried cabbage, carrot & mushrooms, more beans & broccolini.
