I'm making beef stock, using Julia Child's instructions. I roasted the bones and meat and vegis in the oven and now the house is too warm. Stock is on the stove in my new stockpot with the insert. I'm making it this late at night because I got the urge.

I defrosted the stuff in my "for beef stock" bag. I like the new microwave's "Inverter Turbo Defrost". I tell how much the thing I want to defrost weighs, and then it figures out how long and at what power level to defrost it. It's much more along the lines of what I was hoping for with my first microwave: a way to turn rocks from the freezer into food.

We also bought a Jamie Oliver (Tefal) grill pan, a lovely non stick one!

Also a new Tontine Summer Quilt

We then went to a fish shop and bought some atlantic salmon, red snapper, mullet fillets, whiting fillets, cod fillets and some prawns

We are introducing a lot more fish into our diet!

Have not been home long, been relaxing out in the garden, in the sun having some cinnamon coffee after our retail therapy

hey, i like your kind of therapy, kylie! i must do some of that myself sometime soon. and yes, i agree--we definitely need more fish in our lives! well, leastways most of us do.

Relaxing before we go to our daughter's piano recital, enjoying having grandma here.

Just finished wandering around the front trying to take pictures of our new family member, Bella. It was a lot like trying to eat Jell-O with a fork.

She was a squirmey wormey and all she wanted to do was to play and lick my hands/fingers.

I might have gotten one or two passable photos. I'll be able to tell better once I've downloaded them to the computer.
