Staff Xmas dinner so off we all went to a local Indian restaurant ... ate too much.   The food was delicious and we had a lovely evening.

Still experimenting with recipes for Xmas day - latest try was leek and mushroom pie, not bad; it is definitely a contender.  Helps that it is very quick and easy!

Went into Castlemaine early in the morning to get a few odds and ends that I needed and got held up by a 'parade' of trucks!  The annual Truck Show was on just out of town and all the trucks were spruced up and they drove through Castlemaine then on to Campbells Creek where the camp site was.  I got caught waiting for them all to pass - I estimate a couple of hundred in all.  The run from Castlemaine to Campbells Creek normally takes 5 minutes - it took me 1 1/2 hours!!!

There have been tears in my eyes reading your recent posts, Chookie.  This is such an impossibly hard time for you, Ral and your family, but I am sure you are facing all your problems with dignity and that is so terrifically admirable, but terribly hard at the same time.  We are with you in spirit.

Chookie, like Judy and Cookie, DH and I are so so saddened to hear this news and I can think of nothing to say that even starts to convey our feelings at this time.  We send our love and support to you both. XXX

That is worrying news about your MIL K Atie, I hope she doesn't contract COVID on top of everything else.

By now you will have had the storm passing through.  We had it here too.  Very heavy rain, lots of thunder and lightning but, thankfully, no wind.

There has been so much happening to you all recently I thought it was about time I caught up on you all.

Chookie, so happy that your new home is all but ready for you and Ral to move into.  What a huge relief to be able to settle down and just begin to feel comfortable and relaxed together in your own surroundings once again.  You will both sort everything out before long and your kitchen won't know what's hit it once you get back into cooking mode again!

K Atie hope you are feeling better soon, you are sounding so miserable just now.

Personally I would hate jury duty, which is funny because everyone I know who has done it said they really enjoyed it and those who haven't been called say they would look forward to it.

Last week I had a small procedure to one of my eyes, just 10 minutes at the eye specialist and out I came with a black eye.It was a chalazion on the inside of my lower lid; nothing major, just a blocked duct. In all honesty, it didn't need to be done, but I had a small redness on my lid which was driving me nuts, so I decided to go ahead with it.  My eye is perfectly fine and most of the 'blackness' has gone now.

Yesterday we purchased a new TV, so the big adventure now is getting used to this one.  The old one must be about 15 years old and was still working, but it was obvious the screen was loosing clarity and the sound was not the best.  We will take that one up to Guildford and it can live out its retirement up there.

I make a great peanut butter choc chip cookie that is fantastic - 4 ingredient and never fails.  I might look at making it a slice just for a change.

I made that a few times too, Judy, and it was a big hit.  Unfortunately, DH has now become lactose intolerant and I cannot find a decent melty cheese.

Had a small eye procedure yesterday, it was nothing serious and I have a superb black eye today!  All is good, though and my eye should be fine by the weekend.

I have been trying to come up with something different for my vegan contribution to our Xmas this year ... I have done the same thing for the past 2 - 3 years so I think a change is in store.  I recently tried a coconut oil pastry which turned out much better than anticipated, so perhaps a Wellington is a possibility.

I have never been any good at making pastry, but I tried my hand at a coconut oil short pastry and was fairly pleased with the outcome, it was for a mushroom, lentil and ale pie (I substituted red wine because I hate beer), also made Spanish bean stew and peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies

As I said, I am not entirely sure that I have been hacked ... that is the problem.  I am basing my supposition on the fact that I have lost some files (c. 50 or thereabouts) ... but hacking does seem unlikely as the files missing are all my recipes from 2021 and 2022!!!  Very strange.  If, indeed, I have been hacked I hope the hacker is enjoying vegetarian / vegan TMX cooking!  Nothing other than the recipes appear to be missing.  As I said, very strange! :o
