New Years news

Hi Everyone. A quick update.
Hope everyone has coped with the ongoing weather onslaught in Queensland and that all our members are safe and well.

The webpages will be updated over the next few weeks, with new pages, links and information. Sorry about any inconvenienced caused while this occurs.

Handy Hints 03

  • Easy Devilled Eggs – Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag.  Seal, mash till they are all broken up.  Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up  mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy, squeeze mixture into egg.  Just throw bag away when done – easy clean up.
  • Reheating refrigerated bread – To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in a microwave with a cup of water.  The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.
  • Newspaper weeds away – start putting in you plants, work the nutrients in your soil.  Wet newspaper, put layers around  the plants overlapping as you go, cover with mulch and forget about weeds.  Weeds will get through some gardening plastic but they will not get through wet newspaper.

Handy Hints 02

🙂  Add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef.  It will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking

🙂   To really make scramble eggs or omelettes rich add a couple of spoonfuls of sour cream, cream cheese or heavy cream in and then beat them up.

🙂  Add garlic immediately to a recipe of you want a light taste of garlic and at the end of the recipe if you want a stronger taste of garlic.

🙂   Heat up leftover pizza in a non-stick skillet on top of the stove, set hear to med-low and heat till warm.  This keeps the crust crispy.  No soggy micro pizza.
