Spinach and artichoke bake, roast vege frittata, ratatouille and cannot forget RTE's cowboy beans (although that was yesterday so maybe that doesn't count in this thread?)

I've never been to a Costco, probably as well as I feel I might just be too tempted by many things!

JulieO, it is much cooler here as well today, this must be the weirdest summer I have ever lived through, going from one extreme to another.

That's a lot of bottling, Chookie.  When our neighbour gave us loads of apples last year, I just stewed them lightly then froze them, so long as you don't need or want them to look 'pretty' they are fine (they worked well in RTE's apple muffins)

Ral's results are wonderful, you must both be over the moon!

We're due to go onto the NBN today, so I am at work early awaiting the havoc that I am sure will ensue - I have already booked my IT tech to come in tomorrow morning to sort it all out and our security people came in yesterday to convert us to their new system.  Hopefully all will go relatively smoothly.

Bolognaise ... with macaroni instead of spaghetti!

Here we are in the middle of summer, and I am wearing a winter jumper!  This year has been totally crazy.  The one good thing is that the water reservoirs are filling up but, where that isn't happening, the flooding has been terrible.  there never seems to be a comfortable 'middle ground'.

DH bought me the Philips XXL for Christmas, non digital.  Love it.  I make roasts, roast veg, chips, cakes, sausage rolls, pizza etc.in it.   A great addition to my kitchen as my oven is c&"p.  It cooks ok today and not the next.
I had a cranky oven like that for years too, Mab, until I replaced it recently; when we did our renovations in the city I moved the cooker from there up to the country and now I have an oven in each home that works well ... what a difference.

CC, hope you haven't been affected by floods from Dennis, it looks horrendous.  One way or another, it cannot be good for your building site so I hope it hasn't had a negative effect on progress.

RTE's Brazilian Coconut Chickpea Curry, a couple of recipes from my new Jack Monroe cook book - Vegan Bolognaise and eggplant stroganoff, I also tried to make her crumpets but that wasn't successful - roasted turmeric cauliflower to go with some dahl in the freezer then I invented a dish using up all the left overs from everything I had made.

I have just made her Brazilian Coconut Chickpea Curry ( https://www.recipetineats.com/brazilian-chickpea-curry/) - very simple and easy to make as well as being totally delicious. It made heaps and is a straightforward conversion to the TMX.  Mine ended up very wet so rice is definitely needed.

Had your zucchini and tomato soup last night, Chookie.  Not really hot soup weather, but it was very tasty and so easy to make.

Water leaks are devious things to find.  I hate them.  We spotted another one last weekend, but it was a slow one and outside in the garden again.  All good now.

Thank you again, JulieO, I downloaded the Kindle app onto my desktop this morning and it is wonderful - now I will happily start downloading recipe books :)
