I've put the book on reserve through the library but may be a while as it hasn't been purchased yet.  That's okay though, no rush.  I've also read that Kmart will be selling it at $15 too for anyone else interested.  :)

Great idea making smaller scrolls Chookie, I wouldn't have thought of that.  It's been a few years since I've made them, must do so again at some stage as I remember them being nice.

More nice looking biscuits too Cookie  :D  I haven't made anything sweet for a little while, just haven't felt like it.  I'm sure once this weather breaks I'll feel more like it.  :)

Looks nice Cookie.  Nagi is amazing isn't she?  I love watching her little videos, even on some recipes that don't appeal.  By the time she's finished, I want to make it.  ;D

Books books books. Wow. I was able to dispose of  all my books when I moved to Cairns. Books do not do well in the Wet Tropics! I took to kindle but not for my cook books. But then I downsized and realised I really use the Internet more  as Judy says. I now am eyeing off getting rid of th e8 of the 10 I have left. I will never get rid of  my Thai cookbook as it is a direct translation in English from Authentic  recipes and is pretty rare. I have had it for 40 years. Maggie Beer is the other one.


I love looking at my cookbooks through the Kindle App on my iPad/laptop or through the iBooks app whichever they may be on. Don't have to worry about having good lighting to see and no storage issues. I would honestly only ever buy books as an ebook if all were available on that platform.

You can now download books/mags onto your device through a lot of libraries, this is what I do when wanting to look at food mags (though to be honest, I haven't done so for a while, but it's nice knowing it's there). :D

It really is for the younger ones Julie but we oldies have now been there and know what itís all about.  We were supposed to be there for 3 hours but within 40 minutes we had seen everything, found what we wanted to buy for our tea and eaten it. From then on it was just a social evening but the bus driver decided we would leave 3/4 of an hour earlier than we expected.  A nice place for those who live in units nearby to catch up with friends for a drink and a meal. 

Gee thatís slow cookie, does the group hold up traffic by travelling so slowly.  Did you buy some choccies?

My son was living in one of those new apartment buildings at the time Judy and did frequent the place. Great like you say for people living nearby.

Have felt like vegetable soup for the last couple of days so will make some today.

Soups / Re: Zucchini and Tomato soup. Very low Calorie.

Sounds nice Chookie, will try for sure.  :)

The Lamb Korma made lovely little pies in the pie machine. I used GF pastry I had in the freezer and it worked very well.
Today will make the meatball pasta.

Chookie, I see Women's Weekly have just brought out a cookbook targeted to making pies in the pie maker.  I haven't looked inside it to see what it's like but I will do so when I see a copy.  I hear it's much cheaper in BigW.

I think I may have been to that place Judy when visiting my son a few years back.  It hadn't being going for long at that stage but I really enjoyed walking around looking at everything.  The green juice I had on that hot morning was so nice and refreshing too.  I hope you enjoyed it.

Judy did you go on another of your tours yesterday?, I've been enjoying reading about them.  :D

I have more recipe books (both print and as ebooks) than I could possibly ever need but it is hard to resist some that I see now and then.  I think most of us are like that Cuilidh.  :D

I'm sure you are feeling much better already after eating your home cooked food Chookie, there's nothing like it.

I like the look of your biscuits Cookie, have saved thet recipe to make for DH soon.  :)

Sounds like a nice holiday Chookie and was obviously enjoyed to book again for next year.  I find it's so good to get back to cooking again after being away.

I haven't heard of Rocket coffee machines, will definitely have a google.  :)

Have had a nice relaxing few days myself.  DH was on his rostered days off and we've spent the time doing stuff around the house.  He spent a lot of time in the back garden potting the terracotta pots with new seedlings from the nursery, it's looking nice.

We've been wanting to down size from our leather lounge suite so thought we'd put it on fb to see if there was any interest.  It was gone within 2 hours to the first person who saw it.  There's still a small 2 seater sofa in there which will be adequate for now until we decide what we are going to do.  Have been thinking about removing the carpet and sanding the floor so will wait until we know what we want.   :D

Nice area Judy.  When we were there some years ago, I remember quite a few second hand shops that were interesting to look through.  Glad you are enjoying your tours.

Had a lovely relaxing day today.  We've had  52.6mm of rain in the last 24 hours with drizzle on and off during today. After going out to have a look around for various things we decided to have lunch out.  Was okay, brought half home.  Was nice to have a day off cooking though.  :)
