That was a quick turnaround on your window repair, Judy.

Sounds like a long week ahead, Mich, hope you are not too exhausted by the end of it.

Marina you and Chookie have been busy. I made a mango fruit cake from The Annoyed Thyroid’s blog.  It is no added sugar and no fat. Very tasty too.

We really like it. I made mine in an 8 inch tin.
That cake looks yummy ... did you cook it for the same length of time as in the recipe or did you have to adjust the timing?

Had to be in at work at 7.00 this morning for the builders.  About 7.30 the project manager, came in to speak to me about work in the back yard so I went out (without my jacket on) to discuss options with him and chatted for a while.  It was really cold and I was thinking leaving my jacket in the shop was not my best idea this morning.  Anyway, when I had finished speaking with the PM I headed back in, straight for my heater to warm up … only to discover the lock on the inside door to the shop had slipped closed and I was LOCKED OUT!!!  Nnnnooooooooo!  My jacket, handbag, keys phone, etc. were all in the shop.  Had to walk to the apartment (fortunately not too far away) with icicles hanging off my extremities (or that is what it felt like) to get DH to run me back to work and let me in.  I am still thawing out.

Oh Chookie, what a mess to your head phones ... that was worse than the time I lost my spectacles and hunted the house from top to bottom looking for them ... and eventually found them in the fridge!!

Lots of cooking this weekend - Scotch broth, baked beans (from scratch), sun dried tomato dressing / sauce for pasta; cauliflower, broccoli and rice casserole from RTE and roast vege frittata.  I also made the orange and almond cake I had a huge ooooppppss with a couple of weeks ago and had another oooppppssss with this one as well - the bottom of the springform tin dropped out as I was putting it in the oven!!  I managed to save enough to make a smaller cake!

Hope your appointment goes, well, Chookie.

After we move back into our home, hopefully sometime around the end of September / October, DH and I will be going onto Michael Mosley's 800 diet.

Cookie, I am a bit confused ... do you mean you use maize cornflour for thickening in place of 'regular' cornflour, or as a replacement for icing sugar?

I believe Cookie is a member of Tenina's club.  I was at one stage as well but dropped out as I found I wasn't following all her videos and posts (and so many of her recipes were not relevant to me due to dietary requirements).  She is very inspiring, though, so you will undoubtedly get far more out of a membership than I did.  Wait until Cookie comes on and see what she says.

Oh Chookie, I can't imagine that you have never been on a tram considering how often you visit Melbourne!

I have to say that, on the whole, Melbourne people are pretty good with "visitors" and I am glad they treated you both so well.

I guess I am a old 'stick in the mud' TM31 user, but I do not see the use or benefit of an upgraded all bells and whistles machine if you cannot over-ride it and use it manually to do what you want and not be tied only to a pre-programmed set of recipes, no matter how varied they may be.  So many of my recipes are vegan and, from reading the above comments, I would guess that I couldn't make as much use of one of the newer models as I do of the 31 for that reason.

I should qualify that by saying that I have never even seen a 5 or a 6 so the above may (just possibly ??? ) be a totally biased opinion!
