Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

We have been thinking of everyone facing fire threat.
I remember fire coming over a nearby hill when we lived in the country...a big long line of it...and it is a scarey sight. Luckily it was brought under control before it reached our home.

It's been a bad Summer for fires...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

That is sad, Wendy. I must admit son"s house is nothing on that scale. It can look a bit untidy if I call in after he has worked all week and I do struggle to sit calmly on the couch amongst the dog hair, but call in on his day off and it is a different story. His kitchen is always clean and his bat...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Is it a matter of preference that he lives in a bit of mess, or that he doesn't cope with mundane things such as housework? I find with my son ( mid thirties and lives alone with dog), the problem is that he refuses to do any housework on a "work day"! In other words, if he is rostered on at 4 in th...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Trimmed the front garden today. Recent heat wave meant grubbing out a lot of dead leaves. My climbing Geranium was so fried I had to rip it right back to stumps. It will bounce back, but when I think how fabulous the splash of colour was a few months ago it looks pretty sad and sorry now. Filled the...

The spouffle tempts me, Wendy...but I am just about to make a Potato Soufflé for tonight's dinner. I've cooked a savoury mince bottom and have thus far cooked the potatoes, mashed them with butter, cheese, chives and black pepper...but they need to cool now before I add the egg yolks and then fold t...

Re: Afternoon tea

Very nice indeed.
Did that once with a friend ( she enjoyed it more than me as I don't have a sweet tooth). I enjoyed the tea though.

Re: WE ARE WHAT WE EAT

Oh...I have a rather LONG bucket list, divided into minor and major categories. Some of the major stuff is crossed off ( like riding the rapids in New Zealand and climbing a glacier). Still want to swim with dolphins. We have paddled alongside them in kayaks, but must go swimming. But there are lots...

Re: WE ARE WHAT WE EAT

On that note...has anyone actually ever made a soufflé? I haven't, though I think I would like to try one. Supermarket shopping tomorrow, so might look up recipes tonight. ( I am thinking something with a Beef Mince bottom and Cheesy tasty soufflé topping, but not actually sure how it is done.) It w...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Could only pick at food today as my appetite decreases in the heat. But have just thoroughly enjoyed a small bowl of plump, fresh cherries. Really hit the spot. Last night was a similar pleasure, with fresh Kiwi Fruit. 42/43 C degrees tomorrow. I am so over Summer. ( one would think that one's waist...

The size of the project doesn't matter to him. He would happily work until every label faced the front, your fridge was arranged in alphabetical order and he knew every "use by" date in your freezer.

I have just THREE tins of tomatoes in my pantry, and I consider my pantry well stocked.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Snap! ( I need one of those!) I keep all my knitting needles in a wooden box with a sliding lid, rather like a giant wooden pencil case. They are loose in there, so I hunt about for two that match. I have so many needles, I would need a roll with about 100 pockets. I did think about making a roll on...
