I don't think I would be willing to try out medicinal herbs either. They haven't been through the stringent testing medicinal drugs have and sometimes they even have bad side effects.

A spring day here after an early morning fog.

Ditto Marina. What makes me cross is that many must be copy cat acts.

I've made a Classic Loaf today with 50g oatbran and 50g of Wholemeal flour and added seeds towards the end. DH and D D prefer this loaf.

Your strawberries look good, Cookie.  I saw a film clip on the internet yesterday of a strawberry grower dumping lorry loads of strawberries because they were unsaleable.  It just makes me sick and so angry to think that someone would put needles in fruit and all the poor strawberry growers are suffering - as if it's not tough enough being a farmer in Australia with droughts, floods, fires and now needles.  GRRR, so very angry  >:(

I bought fruit & veg yesterday but there were no strawberries where I shopped.  I hope it all comes to an end soon and the culprits are caught - a hard task though Iím sure.
Iím making some soup with the last of the roast carcasses I had in the freezer.  I thought Iíd thawed out 2 x 2 packs last night but one turned out to be last yearís ham bone so I need to buy some split peas and make that soup tonight.

Good morning everyone.  Mixed bag here today, rain then sun.  Hopefully my washing will dry.
The screens sound good Chookie, usually the fitted ones are so hard to remove for window washing, I was hopeless at getting them out but as I have had a window cleaner for years I donít have to worry about it anymore
My plumber is here painting the cornices in my ensuite and bedroom after one of the pipes in the roof which his boys installed a while back came apart. Thank goodness I acted quickly to turn the water off at the meter as only the cornices are water stained.
I agree with you re the herbs Chookie and I donít think any of the people in the group yesterday were interested in trying them out.  I checked out the prices of different plants & veggies for sale at the Botanical Gardens shop, mostly in tiny pots and way too pricey. Particularly the succulents which are so easy to grow from a cutting.

Cookie, I am going to try and buy some cheap strawberries to make jam.  Not much room in the freezer at the moment.  Why would someone put needles in Strawberries?  Crazy.

The chicken pie mixture made 4 pies so still 2 to go.

Several days ago I roasted a 4/4 of lamb.  We has the first meal as a roast dinner.  The next day I sliced the remaining meat into thin pieces.  These I cooked over a high heat in the frying pan with a little garlic.  This I used as the meat in the Souvlaki.  Was full of flavour and crisp but not dry. Also got rid of a lot of remaining fat.

Judy, that sounds very interesting.  Many people at the Creswick Swap use medicinal herbs.  They often bring cuttings or pots of them with written instructions.  I find them very interesting but am a bit cautious about using them.   They often have side effects.

It is cold again today with showers later.  The 4 old Chooks donít lay when it is cold.  Immediately it warm up they start to lay again.  The 3 new girls lay an egg most days.

Yesterday I arranged for a man to come and measure our windows for magnetic screens.  We had them at Cherokee.  They are flywire screens that are attached to the frame with magnetic tape.
