Today I made a batch of Banana & Yoghourt Muffins.

Harvested some more summer produce from the garden.

...and arranged some roses in my latest thrifty find.

More thrifting

Results of last Saturday's excursion to the second hand stores....I tell you this sort of foraging could be catching!

Spice envy!

I spent many years avoiding a spice rack, perhaps due to living in too many share houses with an obligatory dusty pine rack containing Masterfood spice bottles or similar. As a result our spices were always hard to find and often duplicated.

Well a couple of years ago I started getting serious about organizing the house, and spices were high on my list of to dos. Here is how I do it, not rocket science that's for sure. The jars are in alphabetical order, and labelled with my trusty Dymo labeller.

The bulk spices are in a sealed container in that little used cupboard above the fridge. I buy most of my spices from Asian or Indian grocery stores, so it is just a matter of topping up the jars with the bulk packs....voila!

I thought that perhaps with two racks I was going a little over the top, until I saw this one in a flikr group using the same Rationell jars and rack. I think another trip to Ikea is beckoning.

Suzy, how does your garden grow?

A bit of show and tell from the garden today. It has been the best summer for gardening...just have a look at my iceberg lettuce, and the apples. Oh, the apples! We didn't know that they were such beauties until it was too late and they were too big to net. Now we will have to savour whatever the parrots and possums decide to leave us.

And by the way, I did post a rather dour comment on New Year's Eve - sorry about that! But changes are afoot my friends and plans are being put in place, stay tuned.
