Last week I had a few of those days.
It all started when my daughter sent me a photo of some Lebne (marinated yoghurt cheese balls),
They looked divine and she assured me that they were delicious.
So ! I thought, I can make these the instructions were simple and I thought it would be something that we would enjoy with our nibbles and drinks that we partake in occasionally.
So the first step was to stir 2 teaspoons of salt into 1kg of natural full cream non-flavoured or non-sweetened Greek yoghurt.
After stirring it through the yoghurt was then placed into muslin cloth and suspeneded over a bowl to drain.
This has to sit in the fridge for about 3 days, after which you squeeze the remaining liquid from the cloth,
You then remove the yoghurt/cheese from the muslin,
I took some of this away on our trip to the ABBA Festival and it proved to be very popular and I certainly will be making this regularly in the future.
After our last cull of turkeys I had quite a lot of meat to deal with and decided to make some turkey stock,turkey soup and turkey bolognaise sauce.
The trimmed meat was minced(ground),
On Mother's day we got together in the morning with our friends and neighbours from up the road a ways and culled a dozen roosters that had started to become a problem to us both( we had 10 and they had 3), one of ours got a reprieve as the friend fancied him for his girls and took him home with him.
After I pulled the meat off the bones and they cooled down I bagged them into large zip top plastic bags and froze flat on biscuit slides in the freezer.
This week we attended The Biggest Morning Tea, an annual event held in town usually by our local CWA ladies to fund raise for the support of cancer research and treatment.
A few years back, someone had the forethought to plant an avenue of decidious trees along the way into town, between the Golf club and the bridge .
At the moment this is just an amazing hit of stunning autumn colour.
We are heading off into town this afternoon for a meeting ,so have baked a batch of Mum's good old fashioned rock cakes.
I hope your week has been good,Ours as you have seen has been busy, but enjoyable.
Take care until we meet up again down the road,
Jane and Brian.
