Good news here today. Lockdown 2 will cease on the 2nd of December. If itís a disaster with families meeting for Christmas and the numbers start rising again after the festivities, we are headed for Lockdown 3.🤪

Our new kitchen is wonderful Chookie. I had a bit of a baking disaster baking Spiced Pumpkin Bread in one of my ovens a couple of weeks ago. It didnít totally cook through but we ate it anyway 😂

It's worth buying a little oven thermometer so you can test the temperature in your new oven.  When we replaced ours a good few years ago now, everything was over-cooked or over brown.  A thermometer showed it ran 40C hotter than the dial.  It improved by 10C over time but I still set it now at 30C less than stated and things cook as they should.  Worth a try Cornish.
Thanks Julie.😁
A few dinners I have made recently are Shepherds Pie, Sausage and Mash, Pork Chops in BBQ sauce and Fish and Chips.

Stay safe SA friends. 🤗 I read that you are in a 6 day lockdown.
Not sure whether our lockdown will be lifted for Christmas . It all depends on whether the ďRĒ rate drops significantly.

Nice to hear from you Kim.😁

Itís really lovely reading your posts. Great news that everyone is able to see loved ones again and go places. I had to laugh at your comment Chookie of tuning out Ral with your hearing aid.
We are into day 12 of a monthís lockdown. Horrible weather here, itís seems to have rained nonstop for ages.

I found a sad looking packet of cubed stewing beef in the freezer. DS gave me some JalapeŮo chilies he had grown so threw these and additional ingredients into the slow cooker to make Chilli Beef.

CC it's never a good thing to have to go into lock down, but I feel it is better if it is in the cooler / colder weather because people are not so keen to get outside as they are in the warmer months.  Best wishes if you have to ... get back into your hobbies, make sure you have something positive and constructive to do, take Chance for lots of walks, keep yourself occupied ... it helps ... above all, keep safe and well.
Thank you Marina, Chookie and Cookie for the kind words of advice.
We go into lockdown on Thursday for a month. Hopefully this break will see Covid numbers reduced.
