...really started last week with what I thought was hay fever but then developed into the first head and chest cold I have had since 2008! Grrr...I still feel sore and tired but am definitely improving.
To make this lovely baked omelette you'll need
150gms of chopped bacon
a small onion, finely chopped
2/3 cup of milk
2/3 cup grated cheese
1/2 cup peas
2-3 cooked potatoes, chopped coarsely
some finely chopped herbs and salt and pepper
Start by lightly frying the bacon and onion in a (very) little oil and then stir in the potato, letting it cool while you beat the eggs and milk.
Spread the bacon etc evenly over the base of a greased quiche dish and season well
Pour over the eggs and top with the cheese
Bake at 180C until set and golden, around 40 minutes.
I've been resting and knitting...fingerless mittens for friends...
Moving some pots around as we have less shade on the other patio now...
I weeded all along the fence line here and moved the pots too, the tree lost a large shady branch when the fence was installed and I miss it now!
I planted some more tomatoes and 4 marigolds to deter any nematodes that may be thinking of eating the roots of the tomato plants...
Some-one special in the briar patch...he loves to get under this asparagus fern and rest his day away when it's not too hot outside...
My lovely new cotton came Bendigo Woolen Mills this week...a green ball is on back order
I started knitting almost immediately...it's all for face and dish cloths...I like the broken rib stitch in the darker one. I find this yarn a little thinner than a regular 8ply so I used size 10/3.25mm needles and another 10 stitches to get a nice firm knit...
Yesterday friends were talking about the $5.95 a kilo BBQ steak at Coles this week so I went in to get some...it comes in these vaccuum sealed packages but is ready sliced. I went into Woolworths too just at the right time when the Singing Vegie Lady had reduced lots of goodies to $3 bag...
I washed and sorted the tomatoes, many were still firm enough to enjoy raw, the rest I cooked down with a huge clove of garlic and then blitzed with my wand...1200mls of fresh sauce and it smells heavenly...
The Christmas Swap is in full swing at the forum...yesterday I got a lovely surprise package from Vikki in Queensland...she wasn't really supposed to send me anything but look at this gorgeous handmade selection...
Priscilla has finished her chemo at long last, she meets with Dr N on December 2nd to discuss the surgery she needs now so please keep her in your thoughts. Cousin Dave is still having his treatment and is in good spirits so let's keep hoping for a great result for him.
The forecast today is for a hot 37C...curtains will be kept closed and I think a BBQ dinner will be a great idea!
Hope all are well at your place, enjoy your weekend
Love from Sue
