Yes , that is the shop, Daiso. I bought small mesh bags to pop in my hand bag. Sheets of fluffy stuff that soaks up scum or oil on top of stock.
Marina, is there one in Melbourne?  This one was at Highpoint.
I think there is one downstairs on the corner of Bourke and Swanston Street - I will have to check it out.

Yes Marina. Where Readers' Feast was long ago.

Look what I found in an op shop this morning Chookie.  Perfect little gadget to put the lemon or cumquat pips in when I make marmalade, it will hold ample enough and can hang down through the whole in the TMX lid.

I have one of those too Judy.  I use it for tea leaves if I'm the only one who wants a cuppa.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

Lateral thinking there. I have a tea leaves one or two and Iíve never thought of using them in the thermomix for jams.

Last Xmas we were given an Aldi Boxed Italian fruit cake. Panattone . It was much nicer than the more expensive ones that I tasted in David Jones. Also a third of the price.  I have bought several this year to gave a presents.  They are in the shops now.
