Thank you girls, was very enjoyable.  :D

Cookie, I'd forgotten about the kmart book you bought, sounds like it's pretty good.  :D

Cuilidh, I did a quick google and found this.  The question is the last one in the thread and head office have replied.  Doesn't give amounts so you could try it and see how you go. It's from 2013 so it would be for the 31.

Todayís cooking was Saganaki prawns from Skinnymixers new book). 
Making ahead of time I cooked the sauce (which was really delicious).  Did my usual browning of onions in the High Heat collection then carried on with the recipe.  I then weighed that and divided into 2 lots.

Once the prawns were peeled, washed etc, I counted and divided into 2 lots.  All I had to do for me was put a thin layer of cooked brown rice on the base of a small baking dish, add one lot of the combined sauce and prawns then  put the dish in my airfryer and bake for about 10-12 mins then sprinkled with Greek feta and baked another 5 mins or so until prawns were fully cooked and it was hot.  Was so delicious, I loved every mouthful.  Iíll have the other serve tomorrow with some salad greens and cherry toms.

Iíll do the same with the other lot of rice, sauce and prawns which is for DH when he gets home tonight, though heíll have it all as one serve instead of splitting it into 2.  I know heíll really love this too.

I had some over ripe pears that needed using up so I did a search on cookidoo and found a Ďpear & peach crumbleí recipe that I had everything in for.  I reduced the sugar a bit and as my pears were quite ripe, when they had cooked down it made the sauce quite liquidy.  The peaches were okay though.  I didnít worry about that at this stage I just poured it all into a baking dish.  Covered the top with half the crumble (vacuumed packed the rest and put in the freezer to use another day) and baked for about 30 mins. The liquid evaporated and I was left with a lovely dessert.  Will be made again.

I didnít get around to the tahini biscuits but Iím hopeful to do them tomorrow when I have more time.

This sounds like a nice and easy one to split into portions for the freezer Judy, thanks for bumping.  :D

That's great to know Judy.

Cookie, you can buy the Nutritional yeast now at Coles in their Health foods aisle (if you have one close).

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.

I had some mashed potato left over and wanted to use it in some bread. I ended up making these rolls from farfallina.
They have a lovely texture and the crust stays crunchy.

Cookie, you had me at 'crust' and 'crunchy'  ;D  I will check out that recipe, thanks  :D

McMich, great baking.  :D

Some great cooking in here. 
Cookie are the pies you are making from the WW book?  I'm embarrassed to say I haven't done anything more that flick through the book yet. 
I used to make some nice ones last winter for the freezer, I really must start again.  ???

Cuildih, what a great renovation, such a lovely living area, I love it.  No wonder you are so proud  :D

Frustrating for your DH chookie, I hope they can get it right.

No exciting news from me.  Have had a few days with practically no ccoking, just eating left overs but need to cook today.  DH back at work after his days off so will make something nice for him.  Also, he's taken the last of chookie's coconut biscuits so I may make some tahini ones today or tomorrow if I don't get the chance today.  :D

Great tip Chookie, I will try that.  Makes sense when you think about it.  ;D

That's great to hear Judy, I will make up a half a batch in the coming days as I have everything ready to go.  I'm thinking it may be nice to add a tsp or 2 to things just as a flavour boost too.  You can usually rely on AA's recipes.
Nice of Katie to give you some seeds too instead of having to wait.  :)

Not a drop Judy  :(   Wasn't nice for most of the day then blue skies came and that was that!  Looking ahead in the weather, we may get some in a couple of days.

Thought I'd post this here as it will be interesting to see what sort of things they get.  Not all stores to begin with but they say they will roll out to all stores eventually.

Thanks Judy, Chookie and McMich, I was really pleased with these.

Chookie, they are the first ones that had somewhat of a crispier shell and they didn't go soft as they cooled which has happened with others I have made.  I don't think I'll ever be able to get that real crispy exterior you buy in the stores, but for once I was happy with both the texture and flavour of these. I'll actually go back and make these ones again and hopefully improve their appearance.  ;D
