    Did anyone see the best of Top Gear last night? Jeremy Clarkson fixed an enormous outboard boat motor to the back of a ute and commented that it was like having an American sitting on the back of his truck - 600lbs!

    • LL - all the best of kiwi luck for the sale. It is nice when hard work is rewarded, especially at this time of the year.
      My DH bought himself a lovely camera during the year, and I need to get a case for it for his chrissy pressie, but not sure where to go. Would love some help with that one. I have actually just gotten him a couple of PINK shirts !!!!! They are so nice, and I am sure he will look great with these and his cream moleskins !!
      Where are you headed for chrissy day ???

      • Haha, my DH is Maori and his brown hair and brown skin looks lovely in pink. He used to have a pink shirt but I don't think it was top of his list to wear.

        I'll let you know about the camera case, I want to get a nice one if possible so I'm going to head to some camera/photo shops to check them out.

        Staying put for chrissy day. DH has to work so I wanted to keep it quiet, but of course he has gone and gotten us invited to his parents place for lunch (always a massive stress for me). My parents are arriving late afternoon, so we are having a BBQ dinner with some other famliless friends also. I was thinking sausages and salad and trifle, DH is thinking BBQ roast lamb, at least three different desserts, and as many types of salad with hors d'oeuvres to start. Trying reign him in on that.

        • LOL - I bet he looks fabulous in pink !!!!!!!
          and good luck with the reigning in !!!!!!

          • morning all - raining here, but we need it after yesterdays 31 degrees !!!!!!
            Went for a run/jog/sprint this morning. Only 30 minutes, but thats 30 minutes more than this time last week !!!!
            Have a huge headache this morning, so have lathered with peppermint oil to deal with that one.
            I haven't had much to do with coconut cream up until now, but have cooked a couple of meals lately, incorporating coconut cream, and I cannot believe how filling it is
            anyways off to do some ironing
            laters

            • does your coconut cream partially set in the tin? i get that stuff but i am also much prefering the trade aid organic coconut milk my new world has in the organic section. i think it is almost as high fat as the coconut cream, but it is creamy and not set when i try to get it out of the tin. i usually put it in curries, and also in baked custards and creme brulees. or in coffee creamer if i am trying to ditch dairy. i put it in mug cakes too and cakes if i bake them. i did find a real nice recipe for a white chocolate coconut cake which had ganache icing on. white chocolate and coconut cream. i cant do sugar anymore and the kids dont like coconut that much so it would be a recipe for disaster but it looked good. creamed coconut is pretty awesome. i may get myself a jar for xmas.

              • Hi Seas, yep it does partially set in the tin, thick and creamy.

                  • here you go G! White chocolate coconut citrus cake i so could very easily make that GF and it would be super yummy but so not what i am needing to eat right now. managed not to cry when the school bus dropped the kids off for the last time. the f*ckers at the ministry are cutting our rural school bus so no one is very impressed at all. the woman who drives it has been doing it for 12 years and our kids are safe with her which is huge. anti beauracracy day here today =(

                        • Indeed. Made Raw coconut fudge at home. Honey, coconut oil, and unsweetened cocoa. melt coconut oil, mix everything in until smooth, then poor into a sheet, and let set. Easy done.

                          • i make fudge with honey for the kids and whatever nut butter i have and some vanilla. they prefer it to real fudge. you need to boil up the honey so as it sets when it is cold and then just stir in stuff like tahini, or almond butter or creamed coconut. chopped nuts etc. vanilla essence. they dont like it with cocoa or with coconut oil but i can see the appeal myself.

                            • Morning all - I made a reduced sauce last night from coconut cream and blue cheese. I put it over some burgers that I had frozen a month or so ago. I made the burgers with nuts, beetroot, kumara, spinach and LSA.
                              Really yummy dinner, but it was so filling I didn't eat much. I cannot believe how filling coconut cream is.
                              Off to Culvie today to get my hair done !!!!!! am looking forward to that. I will have to go for a walk/jog/sprint when I get home.
                              No alcohol - again - last night, so that has to be a good thing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                              Catch you all later

                              • we had steak with blue cheese sauce last night! simple dinner. bash some rump steak with a tenderising mallet. fry in butter. chop into pieces, throw in some blue cheese and some cultured cream and some salt and pepper and cook till it's all melted. i've never liked that LSA stuff but the rest of the burgers sound divine. something icky about linseeds and flax seeds which i think are the same? i never can do flax seed oil either. or hemp oil which is sposed to be so good for you. euww!!!! i am off to sweep the floor of the woolshed this morning as one of the neighbours is crutching lambs. looks like a nice day so the kids can either help or play outside in the sun.
