I'm making 'roast' beef tonight but will cook the beef in the slow cooker on Low.  Am also trying the Thermofun's recipe for gravy so will see how that goes.  I'll be having some of this, looking forward to it.

Sounds like a lovely day Judy, the weather would have been nice too.  :)

Making White Peach jam. Tomorrow Peach and Raspberry. Making it in the TMX to the Strawberry Jam formula.
Made 9 mini chicken and mushroom pies in the mini pie machine.

Chookie, have you tried Tenina's cherry jam?  I made some the other day, just half a batch to use in her Cherry Streusel Scones that I'll make in the coming days.  The jam is lovely and with the added bonus of not having to pip the cherries first.  I've now bought some more cherries to make more.  That will be me for jam making this year.  ;D

You're welcome Cuilidh  :D

Judy, it's not really a hot meal as by the time it has sat for 5 mins a lot of the heat has gone out of it, unless you re-heat or add more boiling water of course.  I'm so enjoying it and Alyce's claim of ' it moves the crap out of your system',  I can confirm to be true.  ;D

I received an email from Alyce Alexander a few days ago with a link to this recipe.  When I read her little spiel about it I knew I had to give it a go as it really appealed.

I only made half the recipe as it's only for me and it still made plenty and it will keep in the fridge.  I have eaten it for the past 4 mornings and I have really enjoyed it. 

I can understand why they take it with them when away as everywhere you stay has an electric kettle so it would be a perfect and healthy start to your day. 

When we travel by road it's usually a very early start and I usually don't feel like anything before we leave home. I can see myself making this in a keep warm cup (minus the fruit) then when hungry can just add some fruit and eat. I haven't tried it cool/cold as yet but I don't think I'd mind it at all.

I've found the perfect combo is 70g of the dry ingredients with 125g boiling water, stir and sit for 5 mins.  I didn't need to add any more water to it, just the toppings.

Keep it in a container in the fridge, one that has room enough for the contents to move around well when you give it a shake before scooping some out. 

Thought I'd share this for anyone who hasn't seen the email.  :D

Today's was served with half a banana, 1 1/2  quartered strawberries, a few blueberries, a little bit of nectarine and a sprinkle of hemp seeds.

I love how the seals whiskas look like tufts of hair.  ;D

Have a good time with your GS Julie.

The only thing I did was open a bag of mixed salad leaves to make a salad to go with our dinner tonight.

Thanks Cornish, I will.  ;D

It's good to have those easy nights now and then, we all need them.  :)

Cookie, I can't believe it's only the second time I've made them, forgot all about them :o   Made the other similar recipe on here; the cheese & bacon roll ones a few months back but kind of found them a bit dry.  These are so much nicer. Great baking them all at once too  :D

For me today I made another Michelle B meal called 'Pea & cottage cheese pie'.  I didn't use what was suggested as the base and instead I baked the mixture in 2 small silicone flan moulds (9cm x 3cm deep) so it was more a crustless quiche.  Really enjoyed it served with simple salad leaves and a couple of quartered cherry toms.  I'll have the other serve tomorrow.

For the 2 men  ;D  they had bbq chicken with actifry chips, tossed  salad and home made pasta salad. :D

Just a made up Nutribullet mixture - frozen fruits, left over (c. 1 tsp!) of mango, cashews, rolled oats and yoghurt topped up with water.  Surprisingly filling and tasty.

I believe there is a thing called a Nutribullet blast but cannot find any recipes ... does anyone have any suggestions?  I think they would be good for me to try.

I had a look on google cuilidh and found a few different sites where blast was mentioned.  I've put the links here but you may have
seen these. Maybe send a query to Nutribullet Australia to see if they can point you in the right direction, worth a try.  :)

Re-visited this old gem today for DH and GS and they weren't disappointed.  I'd forgotten how great these turn out and perfect for young ones especially.
This photo is from the last time I made them.  Today I used a tomato base (with a little BBQ sauce added for GS), shredded ham, pizza cheese, pineapple and prosciutto.  :D

I bet that put a spring in your step Judy.  So nice when people notice.  :D

I made a miso mushroom meal for me yesterday with some silken tofu (Michelle Bridges).  Don't normally like tofu but the silken stuff was nice, in this meal anyway.  Not sure what the difference is between silken and not but I liked it better.  Will make again.  :)

Having an egg on toast today.  GS arrives soon so I may not be around much  ;D
