I have just put a boiled carrot loaf in the oven.

We have a mother duck and 8 ducklings in the park behind us, we often hear them when they are going to the creek.
Chookie, it's nice to have good neighbours.  We have good neighbours on one side but the other side rarely speak of acknowledge you.

Judy, It sounds like you had a lovely day with the family.  Garlic prawns are yuuummm.

Last night we had jacket potatoes with, bacon, caramalized onion & mushroom topping.  DS made a very nice coleslaw to have with them.
Tonight we are having fresh whiting, home made chips, baby carrots & broccolini.

It's rather hot here today so I decided we will be having take away fish and chips tonight and I will do a bit of salad.

Mab, here is another one that might work, I have had the recipe for ages but never get around to making it, but I think I will have a go this weekend - I very much doubt that mine will look as good as the illustration, it is a butternut, red capsicum and potato puff pastry wrap https://www.tinnedtomatoes.com/2018/11/butternut-red-pepper-potato-puff-pastry-plait.html?fbclid=IwAR2lDn1HkVOGZR-pIBqUULLgi8wySLfEpL39IAJmr-9YmbPik-iM7i_4Y4M

Marina, thank you for the link.  I think I like this one and it will be easier to do than the one I was considering.

Mab, here is the recipe for the leek and mushroom pie - it can easily be made in advance and can be quite firm or softer, depending on how you make the sauce component.  The recipe is really a semi-pie (I don't know the 'correct' culinary name for it!) - just the topping is pastry  https://wallflowerkitchen.com/creamy-leek-mushroom-pie-vegan/

Marina, thank you  for the link.  Although that wasn't quite what I was looking for, it has given me a good idea.  I think I will add the spinach to the sauce and then layer it with slices of  pumpkin.  I subscribed to the site as it has some great meals that I will be able to use at a later date both for GD and myself.

Beef patties in onion gravy with mashed potatoes, carrots, silver beet & asparagus.  Vegetable curry for me.

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!

Like you Marina I am still testing recipes for our GD.  Your leek & mushroom pie caught my eye and I was wondering if the filling is soft or firm.  The reason I ask is that I want to make a pithivier for her, it's like a round pasty/pie.  It has a roast pumpkin & spinach filling and I would like to put some sort of mushroom base under the pumpkin but am not sure if it would make the pastry to soggy.  I was hoping to get it made the day before rather than cook it on the day.  Thanks for any suggestions.

DD took me to the Black Friday sales yesterday.  I bought some new bed linen, a couple of Christmas presents and a copy of the RTE Dinner Book.  We then went out for lunch to our favourite Italian restaurant.  A  nice day out but very tiring.

I am so sad to hear about Ral's cancer.  Sending love and hugs to you both.

I made another 3 dozen shortbread and 3 dozen gingerbread cookies at the weekend.  They seem to go as fast as I make them.
Today I made Honey Mustard Chicken Legs for dinner from RTE, Spaghetti Bolognaise also from RTE and Braised Steak and Onions in the SC.
