Leftover sauces and things like this make great toppings for pasta too.  I have 2 packs of the sauce from my last lot of lamb shanks - always do double the quantity of sauce for that very reason, a quick pasta meal.

It is scrumptious Bron - DH loved it.  I think it was your steamed garlic rice which gave it such a flavour boost too compared with normal plain boiled or steamed rice.  We had it hot and then I zapped it each time we had a piece.  It can also be eaten cold but I prefer hot during this weather. Would be nice in summer with a salad, hot or cold.

We have a lemonade recipe in our everyday cookbook made with 100g sugar, 1 tray ice cubes 2 large lemons and 100g still or sparkling water. Is this the same as yours MrSpock?   The only time I crave lemonade is usually when I am sick - hope you aren't coming down with something ;) ;)

That's it! I'm never going to buy a pasta machine ;D ;D ;D  Oh dear, MrSpock you do have fun and games at your place.  We are all learning from your mistakes though so you are making a useful contribution to this forum - it is just not in the way you thought it would be ;) ;) ;) ;)

Sounds good Bron, my god, how long were you all there for to see them cook that many items ??? ??? Some very interesting versions of a sponge cake - particularly the potato one! Of course, we would like all the recipes but that wouldn't be fair to you, being time poor, so I'll just wait and see which ones the GF people choose and go from there. Which ones do you think you will cook for yourself.

Re spelt flour - if I haven't got any, can I just use bakers flour or is the recipe specifically made for the heavier spelt flour only.

Excuse my ignorance but what is spelt flour and where do you buy it.  I haven't seen it at Foodland but that isn't surprising. A health shop maybe?

Maybe Sunlight soap is more powerful than Velvet as I have just taken things off the line and I can't smell anything except freshness. My towels don't dry stiff (unless they are the older ones which are stiff anyway) and I have used white cheap vinegar in my final rinse for years now.  My washing machine is 15 years old and I have never had 1 problem with it - now that I have said that it will probably break down next week :P :P Mind you, it doesn't get used every day like some people with young families. So, how much did you use in your front loader Intrepidtrier?

Not a lot of stuff to eat today but Rowdy has been put to good use.  I made my second batch of dishwashing liquid, peeled 2 bulbs garlic and froze them, mulched vegie peelings for compost then adapted a recipe for strawberry mousse suitable for diabetics from this week's That's Life magazine after remembering someone a while back had asked for this type of recipe.  Most of the desserts on the forum are not 'light' so this one is a change and I was pleasantly surprised how nice it was. I have posted it in Special Diets.  I also tried Bron's pavlova but unfortunately it failed for me.  It was the one I Love Bimby ended up having success with so it must have been me or my oven at fault. It was flat, sugary and had gooey liquid on the underside if you know what I mean :'( :'( :'( ;D ;D ;D

My dad's a sweet-loving, insulin dependant diabetic.  Apple/rhubarb crumble with equal and fruit salad is getting a little boring... does anyone have any ideas for diabetic desserts, please?  Thanx
Tanyag, I have today converted the following recipe from last week's edition of That's Life and it is very nice too.

Strawberry Mousse - serves 6 x 1/2 cup measures (.2g fat per serve, 365kj per serve)

9g packet sugar-free strawberry flavoured jelly
2 cups strawberries (I used some frozen ones I had), probably more like 2-1/2 cups which I thawed slightly
2/3 cup instant skim milk powder
8 ice cubes

Place the jelly crystals in a bowl and add 1/2 cup boiling water.  Stir until crystals are dissolved and allow the mixture to cool slightly. Place the jelly in the TM bowl, add the strawberries and skim milk powder.  Process 20 seconds on speed 8.  Add the ice cubes and blend a further 20 seconds on speed 8.  Spoon into ramekins or small glasses and chill until set.  Only took about 2 hours using frozen strawberries.
As long as you can match up the fruit with the jelly, there are endless possibilities with this recipe.  I have also done it with mango I had in the freezer and used orange mango flavoured light jelly crystals.  Lovely!

Thanks Thermomixer for all that work on where Bron lives - I wasn't having any luck finding it myself.  The yellow van finished it off nicely thanks Bron.  Do you ever go 'home' to England to visit relatives, holidays etc or is it just so damn good where you are that you don't need a holiday :D :D :D

Made Mum's batch of washing detergent yesterday and forgot to reset the scales when I added the first lot of liquid.  Ended up guessing the amount and the final quantity came right up to the top of the bowl - oops, not supposed to go above the mark :o :o  It did appear to be runnier than the first lot but I thought that wouldn't be a problem, may have been easier to pour into the machine but next day, it had set just like the first lot of goo so no harm done.  I would like to give my DD some for her front loader so have you guys worked out yet just how much to put in that type of machine.

Which recipe did you use for the rolls Kathy?  Sounds like we have a budding little cook there - be careful, he might take over your Thermalena and you will be out of a job. ;) ;)
