Weekend reading

6 April 2018
After a night with yoghurt draining over a bowl in the fridge, I finished off my yoghurt cheese this morning. I added salt and pepper and some chopped green onions. The whey was saved and will be used tomorrow to make a batch of scones. Waste not, want not.

I hope you have a lovely weekend ahead. Hanno and I will be gardening - him in the main garden and me in the bush house. We hope to have the garden planting finished next week but we've still got a way to go. 
See you again on Monday!  xx  πŸ‘©πŸ»‍πŸŒΎπŸ‘¨πŸ»‍🌾πŸ₯•πŸŒ½πŸ₯’

  1. I'll be following that blueberry link, Rhonda. I have two bushes in pots and they always fruit well. I have some other lovely reading to look forward to over the weekend as my son and I visited the library the other day and brought home lots of great books. I found one of natural dyeing with some lovely projects that also incorporate some simple stitching and patchwork. No doubt I'll have projects swirling through my head once I've finished that book! Have a lovely weekend! Meg:)

  2. I have just been thinking that I would like to have a dairy free cheese. Soy doesn't appeal to me, but I wonder if I could do this with my usual rice milk.I really love coconut yoghurt so this is another possibility. I kind of get a kick out of not handing more money over to a supermarket amd here is another chance. Nothing beats home made!

  3. yum! I also love to do this, I also enjoy your weekend reading list,, thank you so much!!

  4. Hello Rhonda,

    thank you for the yogurt maker review yesterday. I have had a few tries at yogurt making and never been quite happy with it. I feel encouraged to try again with a yogurt maker.

    Enjoy your gardening, I hope you enjoy the same beautiful Autumn weather we are having here in Armidale. Expecting 7 degrees overnight so I will light a cosy fire :-)


  5. The travel dollhouse is just wonderful! Could be that one will need to be made and shipped to a little granddaughter in Germany.

    Could someone who could watch it tell me about the video on freezing citrus slices. I could not watch it. Maybe because I am in the US.

    1. I apologise, Lana, I didn't realise it was limited to Australian viewers. Here is the information from the same website in written form. http://www.abc.net.au/gardening/factsheets/excess-produce---lemon-slices/9440238
