... and the fires are starting  up again, already  :(

I actually have a COVID related silver lining - for the first time in 40+ years I have not had hay fever this year ... I am sure it purely thanks to having to wear a mask through the hay fever season.  I will be wearing masks during November from now on.

SD not looking happy. Have some dried  in reserve and also trying to grow another one outside. However neighbour lit a fire and lot of smoke in air.
it is a bit dangerous having a fire at this time of year, Chookie ... are they sensible?

Maybe you could start a new 'line' in smoked bread ;D

I refuse to look at those cinnamon scrolls, it is too tempting.

Today will be a mango, orange, cashew 'custard', BBQ sauce, boiled fruit cake, roast veg frittata and RTE's lemon and herb baked risotto ... so long as I don't run out of energy before I get it all done!

We love our ceiling fans and use them in preference to air con ... mind you, there are days when air con is a necessity!

I love reading this thread, it always brings a smile to my face ... or an outright laugh!

Good news that all is good with the hearing aids - have you broken the news to Ral yet that you can 'tune him out'?

Coincidentally, this recipe came through on Alyce Alexandra's newsletter today.  Not sure about longevity of the finished pudding, but thought I would post the link anyway:

The recipe calls for the puddings to be steamed in dariole molds, but her video also shows her making it in a pudding bowl in the varoma.

Oopps - I just realised you said Xmas cake, not pudding, sorry about going off on a tangent.

Enjoy your break Judy ... can you handle a very light risotto, perhaps?

The Xmas puddings look great, Chookie.

Oh, Chookie, you will really miss your wonderful gardener - and I am equally as sure that she will miss the two of you.

CC good news re. lockdown, I hope everything goes well - keep wearing face masks when out and about and wash with soap and water - our industrial chemist friend was in on Saturday and said that soap and water will kill the virus and alcohol wipes containing c. 73% alcohol is almost as effective as soap and water.

No rain here as yet but very heavy skies and quite a cold wind.  Was very dark on our morning walk today, was like being back in winter again.  The air was fresh and really smelled of the sea.  Really good after a couple of hot days. :D
It's always such a lovely feeling to get that lovely fresh air break after a dry hot spell.

... and it was down here in the city as well.  Hopefully lots of reservoirs and dams filling up in the countryside.

I had seen the headline about this ice cream ... I had never heard of it, though and, as we don't really eat ice cream too often I didn't look into it further. Having said that, had I seen that ice cream on the shelves, if I was looking for ice cream it could well have been one of my choices seeing as it was vegan.

BBQ rub, tofu and cashew curry and a (savoury) nut loaf (an experiment for Xmas!)

Great bit of photography, Ral, the garden looks very productive.
