When Life Gives you Mandarins
Mark was out on the road yesterday, and while driving through Gayndah, he stopped in at a citrus farm and bought a HUGE box of mandarins - 8kg for $7. So who exactly is getting ripped-off here? Is it the Farmers or us who pay that much for 1kg in the supermarket?
Question is, what is one to do with so much fruit? I turned some of them into a Mandarin and Poppyseed Cake:
which I served with some double cream and a pot of tea - it was the perfect way to end a busy day. And believe it or not, I actually have a recipe for "mandarinade" which I might try over the weekend. I don't think you can get enough Vitamin C, particularly with all the colds and flu getting around. Anyone like to offer any other ideas?
And on the reno front, what we thought was asbestos sheeting in the bathroom has turned out to be FC so that should considerably reduce the removal costs for us. As for the rain..... well let's hope it doesn't last.
