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.

Made the Choc chip biscuits and yes they are good.  I know this because I have had to hide them from Ral.  :-*
They are based on a Dorie Greenspan recipe.  These contain rolled oats as well as flour.  What I like about them is that I can add another 3 cups of additional goodies.  I add walnuts, dried cherries and white choc chips.  They make lots. 
I also tried a new recipe by Adam Liaw. It is very suited to the TMX as it contains green tea which is ground to a powder.  I added these to the sugar to grind.  I learnt this tip from a cooking class with Tenina. These are a version of jam drop biscuits only richer.  More a short bread with an interesting flavour of the tea and marmalade jam drop. 
Will post both recipes.

Youíre so good with your healthy eating & drinking habits cookie, hats off to you.
Inspiration to all of us Cookie.  I have booked an appointment with a Gastroenterologist for next week.  I have had tummy upsets.  Probably a good idea to get professional advice instead of self diagnosing.

Dog sitting.  He is no problem and likes to go for a walk down to the dam to check out the ducks.
DS and family coming for lunch. 
Yesterday I cleaned out Chook house and did a bit of gardening.  It was a beautiful sunny day. Made 2 batches of biscuits.

Cookie what a great time , good photos .
I keep typing on here but get distracted. Pepper is good DS saw her today for the first time he was a bit shocked how much ear is missing but is ok . We went to the school play last night , always good .. Beauty and the beast . Always crazy DS had a hockey game early this morning so he stayed in and we went home . DH went to his game they won . Meanwhile DD and I checked the ewes and lambs ! Nearly bogged the Ute , no need to pull any lambs ( lucky me ) . Boys came home DH checked more lambs . Lunch and off to Melbourne, we arrived straight out to Fonda , a Mexican restaurant, DH looked at the menu , not his normal food but kids convinced him it was great . Uni open day tomorrow again , Iím hopping to manage the day with my knee . Bring on another crazy week ahead again . Beautiful sunny day today ... those ewes looked like they were going to pop lots of twins .

I love to see people spoil themselves and you guys certainly did that for this getaway.  Well done Chookie & Ral and Sofitel.  You must do it again some time.
