Judy, thank you for fixing that.

We have an informal arrangement with our lovely neighbours. Lots of fresh fruit and veg come over the fence and I send back some of the things I make. Late last week an enormous Qld Blue pumpkin arrived. So I have been making batches of https://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=15475.msg361211#msg361211 (best ever pumpkin scones from ES's Great Aunty Ruby), 2 pumpkin fruit cakes (will post that recipe shortly) and https://www.recipecommunity.com.au/pasta-rice-dishes-recipes/roasted-pumpkin-and-spinach-risotto/zqrp3faq-54ae0-593687-cfcd2-1a5lk8ba. I liked the risotto but DH wasn't fussed until today when I made all the leftovers into risotto "cakes" by simply rolling them in Kookaburra herb and garlic breadcrumbs and then shallow frying them. The neighbours are getting a second batch of scones but only half a pumpkin fruit cake as the male neighbour doesn't like fruit cake. Men  :-))

A whole pumpkin goes a long way doesnít it?  I love your arrangement with your neighbour, a win win situation.

None of my immediate family would eat fruit cake, pity as I used to love it. These days I know very few people who would eat any cake at all, theyíre either Diabetic or watching their weight.

I adore fruit cake. I will eat and eat it. I don't make it very often anymore for that reason. Tenina has a Paleo Fruit cake that is very tasty and not too high in sugar or calories. https://tenina.com/recipes/paleo-christmas-fruit-cake
Gayle your exchange with the neighbours sounds fantastic.
I made a large loaf of bread today for DH, in the 900g tin.

Yesterday I made some spinach & ricotta parcels with extra veg in them, and some cornflake cookies.
Today I found some pizza dough in the freezer so thawed it out and topped it with a cheese, bacon, onion & mushroom filling then rolled it it up to make scrolls.

I made TimTam balls for the freezer so that I have something on hand if anyone pops in unexpected.

Yummy Judy. How will you resist them, or are you unable to eat them?😢😢

So easy to resist cookie but I had the TimTams in the pantry for the tradies I use. Iíve had them all  here recently (maintenance jobs in and around the house, some heavy gardening jobs, car service, window cleaning and car washing) and I used what I had left to make half quantity of the recipe.  Iím not even going to try one as I know they will just stick to my teeth and stay there.
