I've just been up to have a sneak peak at the kitchen and it is looking really good - WHOOPEEEE!!  I am so excited.  Loads of drawers and enough bench space to work with.  The bench top is not in yet, nor the cook top, dish washer, etc.,, but they will probably leave them until nearer completion time.

30 second orange cake sounds good, Katie.

I giggled at your post, Cookie, I was given a big box of late season apples yesterday .... just an hour or so before I had to come back down to the city ...  and could not think of a single thing I could do with them in that time.  Consequently, I am on the hunt for (lots of) easy ways to use up apples as, apart from my TMX, I don't really have any useful prep or cooking space here!

Lemon and poppy seed cake; mushroom stroganoff; lasagna and creamy vegetables with pasta ... last weekend I had a carrot weekend, this weekend has definitely been a pasta weekend - the carrots were healthier!

Cold wet and sunny .

Shame about the house, Cookie, but it pays to have a good look over a prospective place before you commit to anything.

Moderators, please remove if this post is inappropriate.

I have just found a new search engine called Ecosia.  They say they will plant one tree with every search made through their program I have used it a couple of times (I am up to 3 trees  ;D ) and it seems to be pretty well the same as Google with a social conscience.  The link is https://www.ecosia.org/?ref=icon-search&addon=firefox&addonversion=4.0.4

Did anyone else catch last night's 7.30 Report on the ABC?  There was an interview with Nagi of RTE.  You should be able to scroll down here]=https://www.abc.net.au/7.30]here and you will see her happy smiling face alongside her mum - no sign of Dozer, though!  I tried incorporating the URL for the program but in case it didn't work, here it is:  https://www.abc.net.au/7.30/  I didn't realise she had such a huge following.

Marina, how have you coped?  Couldnít you sneak up. ? Donít spoil them too much with your goodies, they will do a go slow.
Lost the internet this afternoon.
I hadn't thought of that, Chookie, I'll think about that ... perhaps my oven will be over-taxed this weekend  ;)

Had a meeting with our builder today and he said we should be able to get initial access to our top deck in a week or two.  Very exciting.  All the builders have been raving on for ages about the great view from up there (winding me up no end!) and I keep nagging them to let me up ... I think they get way too much enjoyment out of winding me up, though, to give in too soon (maybe I should cut back on my home baking "bribes").  Anyway, we will get to see the deck and the view for ourselves before long  :)

Cookie, we get our flour direcly from Laucke - Wallaby 55 if I remember correctly ... Chookie put us on to it so she can correct me if I have it wrong.  The spelt and rye flours are from one of the high turnover organic stalls at Victoria Market.

Chookie, I just get roasted unsalted peanuts, also from Victoria Market (I think the stall is called The Nut Shack).  I don't think they are organic, but they are generally pretty good quality.  I am not sure, but I think DH puts a touch of oil in as well, but I could be wrong.  If you want more details let me know and I'll get on to it.

Judy, my theory is that you must always get it wrong the first couple of times and there must always be at least a couple of extra bits that you simply cannot figure out what they are for!

Minestrone soup, no-bake carrot cake bites (for the builders  after we have sampled one or two, of course!), RTE's oven baked rice and vegetables and EDC stock concentrate
