    RATS !!!!

    Yes, we bought a rat trap, you can see it in the video, but he still manages to evade the spring. We have caught a couple of mice in it though. Might try sticking it in a corner though so there is only one way in.

    Any good for a dustbath?

    I have a purple one of these, also from Flyte so Fancy. They don't use it much but I think that's because they have filled it up with woodchips. It does offer all round protection from the weather though. I need to sort it out for them. They sell them at Rokers ajm

    RATS !!!!

    OH believes the rat was getting into the trap from the ‘wrong’ end and was able to steal the food and trigger the trap without getting caught. He positioned it in a corner so the rat had to stand on the trigger plate properly to get the bait. We caught it 2 hrs later He found and followed this advice ‘A typical mouse trap is not big enough to catch rats. ... Remember to place them touching a wall since rats like to run along walls to avoid detection’

  8. Mine also get green stuff when I remember and if it is on offer. Otherwise they just get their pellets and at the moment, sunflower hearts for supper but that will stop when it warms up.

    Yes, sorry about that. I wouldn't have believed it myself if we hadn't had caught on camera. I love how he gets his bottom stuck on the way out and needs to have a wriggle to escape. We haven't managed to get one in the trap either and it always sets off the spring without getting caught. I don't know how it manages to do that.

    This is my recipe for 'Green and Blue Soup'. If you're wondering where the name comes from, it's just a mix of green veg. and blue cheese. When I make this, I always make a *huge* amount of it, so that I can have it for several meals. It'll easily make 4 decent portions (when served with bread). Ingredients: 1 head of broccoli 1 clove of garlic 1.5 litres of vegetable stock. 250g spinach 200g kale 1 cup frozen peas 10g chives 220g blue cheese (or more or less, depending on how strong you like the flavour - and how intense the cheese is) sea salt and pepper (to season) Method: Break up the broccoli and peel the garlic clove and bake both in the oven until they brown. (This gives both a sweeter flavour than normal.) Mix up the stock and add to a large pan. Once the stock is boiling, throw in all the other ingredients and cook until soft - including the browned broccoli/garlic. Once soft, blend it all together until smooth. Add the cheese and blend again until smooth. Season with S&P to taste. Serve with crusty bread, and stuff your face!

    Just made a really tasty penne cheese bake with butternut squash as DD and family descended and I needed to use that butternut Squash. Just cut butternut squash into small cubes, cooked for 10 mins, the added to the cooked penne. Covered with cheese sauce, scattered more cheese on top. Put a bit of red pepper on top to stop it looking anaemic and put in the oven for 45 mins. Scattered chopped fresh sage on top and served with a salad. Everybody loved it so I’ll be doing it again. Thanks for all those recipes. Especially the Chocolate Mug Cake!

    Eglu Cube for Ducks

    My friend used to have call ducks - every time anyone walked down the garden they would peck the back of your ankles - it didn't hurt but it was quite scary! 😮

    That happens to me all the time because I mostly use recipes from the internet these days and when something turns out really well I frequently can’t remember where I got it! Ooh I’ve made that lemon tart before - it is really easy and SO tasty.

    Thank you Ajm - I think! Now I think maybe when OH turns in (around 8.30) I might just potter in the kitchen! Omletina! That's another blast from the past!
  18. That's what I thought but I will try and remember to start giving them their brocoli again as they do love it! 😀

    I'm veggie Andy and would love to become vegan too but the cheese issue stops me also. On Jamie (Oliver) and Jimmy's Friday night feast they recently had Romesh Ranganathen on who is vegan. He was saying how much he misses veggie lasagne as he has never found a vegan cheese which tastes any good but they found one and made a delicious lasagne but of course they didn't say what the vegan cheese was!! 🙄
