Good results in the polyhouse, even after the mess the mice made. Lots of tomatoes up and plenty of lettuces, herbs and brassicas, not as many as I was hoping but enough anyway. Weeds are really taking off in the vege garden, I'll need to keep on top of them through all this warm weather.
Mike fixed the handle of the new/old plough we bought, works a treat and has minimal impact on my back.
Have been very slack in the kitchen, too much nice weather, I really don't want to be inside. I must do some serious freezer cooking and try big batch bread recipes. Doubled my Anzac biscuit recipe with great results, really need to triple it to fill the new oven though, Mike will be pleased. The recipe below is the doubled one, halve everything for a smaller batch.
ANZAC BISCUITS (BIG BATCH)
2 Cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cup coconut
2 cups plain flour
3 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
4 tablespoons boiling water
2 cups sugar (I use raw sugar)
1 cup butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup
Mix oats, flour, sugar and coconut together. Melt butter and golden syrup together. Mix soda with boiling water and add to butter and syrup mix. Add this to dry ingredients, mix well. Place 1 tablespoon of mixture on greased tray. Bake in slow oven 20 minutes, standard oven. (In my commercial fan forced oven I bake at 160 C for 15 minutes, this gives me a well browned slightly chewy biscuit) This mix is quite dry and crumbly, the biscuits will bond together during baking.
