Is Ednaís recipe similar to my Belgium lemon cake  recipe?
Roast chicken, sweet potato and carrot mash, roast potatoes and steamed Cauli, broccoli and green beans. Gravy.

My iPad is playing up. I need a new one but with everything else going on it will have to wait.

Yes , the brown ones are Medlars. I was told that all modern apples are developed from them.  The red ones are a form of hawthorn. I thought they were crab apples and was about to make jam from them. Fortunately I was told that they are full of cyanide before I made the jam.

KATIE, l really appreciate the message about the books. I know it is so true. I started to put them in order so they would look nice for the sale of the house. In so doing , I found one that I hadnít used for ages. I immediately found a nice recipe for a banana cake . I made it and it was lovely. I have managed to give away some magazines.
I have done a second cull of my baking tins. Wasnít as painful this second time as GD has taken some.
I shifted into DD home today. Feels a bit strange. I taken some clothes and personal items.
COVID and flu are raging in Ballarat. Iím being very careful and wear my mask when away from the house. .

The most difficult cull will be my cooking books. I have near to 500 now. Ridiculous I know. I subscribe to Dish magazine and have since their first publication. I also have a complete set of AWW books. The soft covered ones.
Odd job man and son will be coming today.

Thanks for all the good advice.
My friend did an amazing job. She washed and polished all the kitchen cabinets while I decided what was to go. We covered a 12x3 feet bench with discarded kitchen stuff. I was very worried that I wouldnít be able to get rid of it all. We invited neighbours and GD to take what they wanted, still a lot left Then my friend remembered a lady who does a lot of charity work around Ballarat.she took everything remaining.
Both our painter and Estate Agent have COVID.
 Mab, please keep your eye on that bowel infection.

Friend and puppy arrived. Ral home next Thursday. Hell! Hired a Hospital type bed and bought linen for it yesterday. Invited friends and neighbours in to take stuff that I have cleared out from kitchen. Rest will go to op shop. DD is re arranging her house to accommodate us.
I didnít realise I had so much stuff. There are 52 drawers in the kitchen, plus shelves. Even though I have removed a lot, I think I will probably have to do it again when we shift.
Lots of friends arriving. More talk than work. Good though.

Thanks again for the lovely thoughts and good wishes. A good friend is coming to spend a couple of days and help with the clean out. I attempt the clean out one room a day. I think the kitchen will take a week. ! DD Ďs house is well set up and Ral will go there straight from Hospital.
