Understand Marina. Thanks for sending the good weather.
The Royce Hotel was lovely. Fab service but the food for breakfast not fantastic. I admit Iím pretty critical. Had scrambled eggs with crab. Doesnít work for me. Smoked salmon much better. They had home made crumpets on the menu so just had to try them. Absolutely awful. They were really just large piklets, $22 for 2.
Will stay there but not have breakfast there. .
We had dinner in the Deli at the Farmers Daughter restaurant. There were 4 of us. We had the set menu and it was just as delicious as last time. They were very busy and itís not surprising. The service is very attentive but not intrusive. They are particular about any food sensitivity. The food is simple but fresh and beautifully cooked. For $85 dollars I think it is good value.

GD loves the 5. I think the original 31 has had a very full life. She joined Cookidoo and made Lentil Bol sauce and sent me a photo. DIL loves the 6. Will try the free Cookidoo for 6 months before she decides. We are all on different WiFi. She is quite excited as she has only had my hand me downs and this is new. She set it up herself, didnít need the consultant.
K Atie, you could give your DD your 31 and buy an extra bowl.
Today I will make lemon cakes in my new square cake pan. I now prefer to make individual cakes rather than a big one. Good to freeze and just take out as many as necessary. Doesnít look as dramatic but more practical for me.

Marina, enjoy your new computer.
Had a shopping day in Lygon Street and Melbourne.
Bought 2 cook books, ( more on these later ), a large block of Parmesan cheese and a packet of small Italian Biscuits. They are jam. filled. Iíll copy these. A pair of long socks that are imitation sheep wool lined. They are for the winter when you are reading.
In DJ Ďs , 2 tops, a Le Creuset baking sheet and a Le Creuset 12 hole square  cake pan. A dramatic table cloth with large bunches of grapes to cover the glass table. Some Makeup.

Just bought a new laptop computer and it's taking a bit of getting used to.  So many ads, driving me mad so I have got to suss out a decent app to get rid of them ... or at least cut them down before I go completely batty!

I THINK you can share Cookidoo with family.
I made Chookie’s Apple Cake today with 4 different varieties of apple. It smells delicious with the rum. I also made some Ciabiatta rolls from BBC good food. They aren’t things of beauty but taste good.

The other day I made a brownie slice used baby Lindt Easter eggs . Very rice , I was adding the sugar and stopped well before adding half the amount ! Lucky as it would have been far to sugary.
Hope to get my cooking mojo on today .
Chookie I was wondering if you could have added GD on to your Cookidoo or you DDS Cookidoo .
Possibly not as it would be a different internet . I may have to pass on my 31 or 5 to DD but I keep hesitating as I use them all the time .
