Ohh Hi Sue, havent seen you for awhile:hug:

I’m with Margo; i wouldn’t risk it. as Margo says they’re incredibly heavy even empty. i seem to remember somewhere reading that they shoudn’t be used on glasstops.
Belinda is spot on; egg whites freeze brilliantly.
i freeze four at a time and then defrost as necessary….I love to make merrangue (sp?) nests and pavlova.
i love my herb garden with a passion; when we buy our own home i’m going to have a huge area devoted to herbs alone:
curly leafed parsley
flat leaf parsley
rosemary x 4
can’t wait for spring so i can plant plenty of basil!
Alex and I had a big talk about HS today. Yesterday we got a call from the school saying that Garion had fallen and hit his head, so Alex went in to get him.
It turns out that some of the boys had been playing “put the others in the bin” and Garion didn’t want to play that game and was walking away when another boy tripped into him and there was…

i get the T-bar chai blend and it’s yum:tup: Chai is also a Afghani delight.
Has anybody got a recipe for canning plum puddings? I’ve tried to google and searched the garden web without success
i came across one this evening at:
i have posted two recipes on the recipe page on the forum http://www.greenlivingaustralia.com.au one is my MIL’s spicy sausage and the other is the curry sauce that the sausages go with.
when canning the sausage curry leave the potatoes as close to raw as possible when putting in bottles….let the pressure cook them. i cook it for 90 minutes at 11…[Read more]
maybe a dumb question – but I thought you had to follow set recipes for canning to ensure the food safety side of things
i usually pressure can for 90 minutes which is the times recommended for things with meat; even when i haven’t got meat in them i do that time. i tend to pressure can complete meals with a mix of meat and veg and 90 mins is…[Read more]

perhaps we have a difference in what we both think a worksheet is?
what you are doing with your child is not what i consider to be using worksheets…your 3 yo is ‘doing’ maths and concrete experiences are certainly being experienced even though they come from a piece of paper and scissors. typically in commerical books with…[Read more]
To be honest bluebird, since getting my canner all i’ve done is try to convert my usual recipes to more canning friendly cooking methods.
if i try to can my usual recipes ‘as-is’ then things like the shallots in chicken and corn soup get overcooked. so i just try to predict what will be overcooked and add that when the food is eventually served…[Read more]
We’ll have to agree to disagree here:tup:. My stance on worksheets holds fast….i don’t believe that ustilising a worksheet is good because as you say it “encourages them to actually put pen to paper”. Yes pen to paper experiences are vital in gaining literacy skills however i don’t think this is enough of a justification to use…[Read more]
i have a huge education library which is updated regularly….i don’t stick to any one ‘brand’ and readily admit to having an addiction when it comes to books, like you!;).
i don’t buy anything that has worksheets in them; lazy teaching methods to use these:uhoh:.
Matthew lipman is really big in the philosophy/ethics field and i’ve used his…[Read more]
I am working on helping him learn in other ways like moulding letters out of clay to form a picture he can remember in his mind for reading (he has trouble reading and spelling)
Look for books/lessons etc based on Howard Gardners Multiple Intelligences which focuses on children learning in ways that best suit their learning style.
In defence…[Read more]

i want a friend/neighbour…anyone like that:tup:
Jodie, do you wet your worm farm at all? i wet/soak the cloth covering that i have over the worms about once a week/fortnight. the water goes through the castings and through to the bottom level and then out the tap. i get instant wee nice and dark.
sometimes my worms go down to the bottom tray with some sludgy castings . i hose the bottom…[Read more]

occassionaly i get a biodynamic yoghurt and 600ml add 2 tpns of salt and then hang over a bowl in calico or cheese cloth
its similar to cream cheese and the longer you let it hang the “dry” it becomes its quite tastey
