The Chooks love the kitchen scraps.  I saved the fat from the ham and give them a little each morning. Occasionally if there isnít enough or they are not pleased with the scraps they will peck me on the leg. I donít give them names as I get too upset when they die. I have had Chooks continuously for 40 years.

I love chooks Chookie. At our previous house the lady next door had a few chooks. They loved bacon rind and capsicum seeds. Sadly they were killed by a fox, even though the wire fence had been dug down into the ground.

I received an email from Alyce Alexander a few days ago with a link to this recipe.  When I read her little spiel about it I knew I had to give it a go as it really appealed.

I only made half the recipe as it's only for me and it still made plenty and it will keep in the fridge.  I have eaten it for the past 4 mornings and I have really enjoyed it. 

I can understand why they take it with them when away as everywhere you stay has an electric kettle so it would be a perfect and healthy start to your day. 

When we travel by road it's usually a very early start and I usually don't feel like anything before we leave home. I can see myself making this in a keep warm cup (minus the fruit) then when hungry can just add some fruit and eat. I haven't tried it cool/cold as yet but I don't think I'd mind it at all.

I've found the perfect combo is 70g of the dry ingredients with 125g boiling water, stir and sit for 5 mins.  I didn't need to add any more water to it, just the toppings.

Keep it in a container in the fridge, one that has room enough for the contents to move around well when you give it a shake before scooping some out. 

Thought I'd share this for anyone who hasn't seen the email.  :D

I kept this recipe as I thought it would be rather nice. I will only make half too as there is only me to eat it. Thanks.
