Won't be checking in too often. And I'll be doing the chinese

Hey Quicksilver! DC is short for "Discuss Cooking". You get used to the abbreviations used here after a while... well most of them, most of the time! Sometimes I have to do a double take cos some of the abbreviations mean different things here, and not all of them are polite! There is a list of most in the Help forum.

Where I am, in Oz, its Autumn. Won't be long before the heater has to go on again! So I will be trying to adjust to having to wear a jacket, although it is meant to be around 30C (86F) for the rest of the weekend.

I've just spent the last hour browsing around the posts, after baking my first loaf of bread in ages, and I've seen some really tempting ideas.
LOL - I fixed your "t"

Thank you, kitchenelf, I appreciate that. I'm actually in the Bahamas, quicksilver, now watching American cookery programmes. One of things to get used to is the difference in the spelling of some things, as well as measures. Life is a learning curve!

I forgot about this thread til now blackcat.
One of the things I had to get used to was not having
a basement and no full sized attic. As kids, the folks had one,
the kids the other. Downsizing wasn't easy, but you really don't
need as much stuff because there are only two seasons here.
1) SNOWBIRD 2) MOSQUITO - the state bird.

When in doubt, make a fool of yourself!
