My colleague is going on the climate change march today as well, I would have liked to join her as well, but cannot.

.....  Odd job day Friday.  Like to finish the week with nothing  hanging.
Chookie, that's a good motto to live by.

Well done Judy, sounds like a totally satisfying visit all round.

It was a Panasonic, 1100 kw (if I recall correctly).  I didn't do as much research as I maybe should have done, but my old microwave and the one at Guildford are both Panasonic and neither of them have given me any trouble so that's why I went with that brand again.  LG got got reviews in Choice magazine, but there were a lot of negative comments on Canstar Blue about the noise / tune they made when they had finished their cycle that that put me off them.  Also, because the mw is above the oven and the oven was mainly black with a stainless steel 'fascia stripe' I felt I should get a similar look for the mw.

We also enjoy watching birds in our bird baths, they are so funny and calming to watch.

A microwave and washing machine for me.  Not nearly as inspiring as a recipe book!!

Oh yummmm ... thank goodness I am about finished baking for our builders (as there is only a week or two left on the project) otherwise I think these cookies would be getting a weekly airing, they sound so delicious.

Those flowers are amazing, Cookie ... when I first saw them I thought they must have been arranged by a florist.  Is each wreath a single plant / flower?

It got to about 33 on the road yesterday. I believe the city had about 31. It’s quite warm here, the van thermometer says 32.  We forgot to put our chairs in, so we are sitting on the step and an upturned box. 😀😀😀😀😀

Chit Chat / Frozen Cakes and Cookies
« on: September 10, 2019, 12:21:11 am »
As you know, our renovation / extension project is in its final stages.  Our builders have asked if they could have an open day a couple of days before handover for prospective clients, sub contractors, staff, etc. and dropped a very HEAVY hint about my home cooked cakes and cookies.  I do all my baking at the weekends and the open day is scheduled for a Friday so, the question is, can anyone suggest cakes / cookies that can be baked then frozen for a week or two then thawed out successfully on the open day?  Perhaps all cakes and cookies can be frozen, I don't know because the ones I bake never seem to last long enough to see the inside of my freezer!

At this stage, I am not sure that I will do much baking, etc., we may just go with buying dips and Turkish bread, pizza, sushi, etc., but just in case the whim takes me to go on a baking spree in the week or two prior to the 'event' I would welcome your ideas and thoughts.

Thanks in advance!

Gosh, that is a hard chemo treatment schedule, Katie.  Is your DM an inpatient or do you have to take her in and out every day.  This is a challenging time for you all and my thoughts and hugs are with you.
