Things have been pretty busy around here since the new model thermomix came out and then school started again. I’ve been having a lovely time zipping around and doing demos showing off Sheldon, but when I woke up this morning and walked around, things seemed slightly ragged around the edges in the Frogdancer household.
I made the dough for these sweet potato and parmesan dog bickies last Saturday. The recipe said to leave the dough in the fridge for 20 minutes before shaping and cooking them. A week later, the dough finally made it out of the fridge to be baked.

I bought these lettuce, capsicum and (I think) cucumber seedlings last Friday when I had a meeting with my branch manager in a cafe attached to a nursery.
Haven’t planted them yet…

The chives in the wicking box are flowering. (Actually, I don’t mind that. They’re very pretty.)


The basil mint in one wicking box is running rampant while the celery in the next one is languishing. Must water wicking boxes.

The basil seeds from last year are still waiting to be harvested. (Actually, I can’t blame this on the busy-ness of the new model. These have been sitting here over the whole of winter.)

And Jeff and Mrs Popplesfield may or may not need a grooming session to get rid of knots in their ears….
Fortunately I had a demo cancel today, so Things Will Get Done.The boys won’t know what’s hit them when they wake up. Mum’s cracking the whip!

    I smiled to see the bones on the rack; we just made beef jerky on similar racks. It’s amusing to see the contrast of cooked items.

    Mmm-mmm, it must be lunchtime, as those dog bikkies look very appealing!

Don't be shy... say something!
