Thought I would make RTE Churros. The taste was authentic and very easy to mix and cook, BUT I couldnít get the paste to extrude through the star piping nozzle.  I made the recipe 4 times and still havenít got it to work.  I added more water to make the dough soft by adding 75 mls extra.  I think the nozzle is the right size. 
I made little donuts and Ral did the taste test.  He said they were good.  Next time shopping , I will check the nozzle size.

Tried 2 new versions of the Surprise Biscuits.  Made Chocolate ones which today will fill with Chocolate cream, and peanut butter ones.  The Peanut butter ones are interesting as they are not too sweet.  I think the Ginger ones are my favourite, Ral likes the Monte Carlos and Chocolate ones. I have added these to the instructions in my Blog.
Making some Vegetarian Samosas for GD.
Opened jar of Medlar jelly and it was a bit runny, so will reboill it and add some Jamseta.

Julie, that does look and sound tasty.
Last night I cooked the easiest and tastiest meal. An Alison Roman recipe, sausages with capsicum peppers and onion. All cooked in one pan and served with mashed potato.  We are very fussy about our sausages.  These were delivered with the order from the local small goods order. They were very good.  I can now eat a little onion so really enjoyed this dish.
Chow Mein tonight so I can use the left overs for Spring Rolls tomorrow.

Marina, donít feel too bad about being scammed.  It has happened here.  I think it is quite common. Last time I rang the bank and they are very good at working out if it is a scam. Glad you didnít lose too much. 
K ATIE, hope you are feeling better.
Judy, enjoy the dogs. 
Melbourne family coming tomorrow. Better get cooking. 
We cleaned out the Chook shed yesterday.  Hosed out the laying boxes.

Report on Lambie.  Pulled the teat  off the bottle as she was so eager to get the milk.
Judy, she is really not much trouble.  Feed every 3 hours, 200 mls milk. Goes home to sleep.
Very cold this morning.  3 degrees, Max 9. No rain.

Cookie, thatís a nice way to venture out.  We loved Busselton when we visited.  Loved the big trees.
Rals platelets were down a bit.  More fiddling with the medication.
More lamb and picking up GC from school.
Long weekend with Monday holiday.

Marina, how is the hand?
Judy, Dr will ring with blood test results today. 
K ATIE, know how you feel.  I did a little shopping yesterday.  Being very careful. Carry bottle of the gel in handbag. Not many people in shops .
Lamb, now follows me around.  Barrís when hungry.

I mixed some Spag Bol with rice and wrapped it into little Silver beet parcels, covered with diced toms and topped with white sauce. Cooked long and slow in oven.  Served with mashed potatoes.   Very nice.

Michele, I use a 4 cm ice cream scoop for  the surprise biscuits. 
With the buns, if you stretch the dough over the top and pinch it under the buns, you can get a better shape or ask Cookie how hers always look so good.
Yesterday made Steak Paste from my Blog.  Nice with fresh bread and lettuce.  https://achookwoman.blogspot.com/search?q=Steak+paste (2nd recipe)
Ice cream, an Alice Roman recipe.  200 g , cream, 400 g plain yoghurt and a tablespoon honey. Whip cream, stir in yogurt and honey, freeze. Ral loves this.

Michele, nice to have some support. 
RAL blood test today. No detected cases of virus in Ballarat at the moment, but still not happy about going out.
Judy, thanks for doing the link for Michele.

Will be easier with lamb today as it now has the idea about drinking from the bottle.
Cold, max 11. No rain.

Marina, the Tomato and Red lentil soup is a good basic recipe as you can add whatever veggies you need to use up. 
Yesterday I stuffed some Silverbeet leaves with Bol sauce mixed with some rice, covered with diced tomato and  baked.  Also Quinoa and broccoli. Mashed potatoes.  Also scones that turned out like bullets :-X. I used milk instead of cream.  GS ate them.  Must have been starving.

Wow, Marina that is fantastic. What a lovely living space.  It is not easy to do what your Architect has done. Ral and I love it.
Today my silver lining is I finally got Lambie to suck from the bottle.

The Crofton pots canít be compared to the French cast iron ones.  I have both. The Crofton are light, aluminium I think.  However, they are excellent for cooking bread in.  If you want to heat the pot in the oven, prior to baking, then the cast iron are better as they hold the heat. The Crofton ones are best lined, especially the base as they can burn at high temperature. Still a good buy at the prices at both Aldi and Coles.
Julie, thanks for posting the link.
Yesterday was bitterly cold.  Rain most of the day.  Today max of 12.
