Oldest came 'round today & cooked up meals for the next week for her & me (us). She made barley & lamb shank soup (a vat's worth), mung bean dahl & a vege curry with brown rice. The dahl, curry & rice are for lunches for most of the week.

Went to the movies tonight so had some Pho (chicken & veg) & handrolls (veg & tofu) while Mrs WPT had vege steamed dumplings & one of the handrolls.

All about Eve at the Astor.

The youngest got 2 tiks for me & her for fathers day coz I was on the bike ride. However she's crook with a mancold & so Mrs WPT & I went.

One of my top 5 films of all time. If you haven't seen it go & watch it -I'm sure both you & your partner would really like it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHVYTPFgCqE

Won 6 academy awards in 1950. That same year Sunset Boulevard also won awards & is another brillient film, both films strat with a writer narrating it & uses "flashback" .

Joseph Mankewicz wrote the screenplay & directed it.

The dialogue is brilliant & sharp

The acting is wonderful

One of the best films with Bette Davis
George Sanders (played the original saint often on late night TV)

Looks like it was on the 2015 VCE texts

It's a stunner. Shame the youngest wasn't up to it.

Also features Marilyn Monroe in ? her first film - small role.

Sharing your germs around! Seen the movie, it is good. Not really one for the oldies but I like a few. Rear window being my favourite black and white.

Made a large pot of chicken stock tonight. Have the strained the stock & put it in a pot, covered the top with gladwrap then placed the lid on top. Keeping it outside overnight so the fat can came to the top & I can take it in the morning. Being fussy I'll strain it again to get the last bits.

I use a whole chook which I've separated - got rid of the skin, bones & bits I won't eat, got rid of the veges: carrots, parnip, onion, & celery.

Tomorrow I'll heat up the stock, then taste probably will need more salt, add some dill, then more dill then some chopped veges: potatoes, carrots, beans, white beans, fine barely & chicken pieces. Take off any richmond & carlton that floats to the top in the beginning & a soup to last a good few days.

Finished the soup. Put it in th fridge this morning.

The soup was a ripper: took the fat off, strained again then added 2 chopped carrots, 2 chopped zuchs, a handful of chopped green beans, fine barley, a fair bit of dill, 2 potatoes cubed, 2 small stalks of celery diced, a tin of white beans, and diced / sliced chiken pieces from the stock & a bit more salt.

yum, lot of work but worth it. home made stock is always nicer than bought.

Salmon tonight, got to coles at just the right time, they marked the whole tray down to $11 a kg, has to be used or frozen by tomorrow, so i bought the whole tray, about 6kg of it!! and lots of baked vegies!!

The chicken soup sounds great.

having got back from NSW yesterday arvo, the old girl did dinner for the tribe in the crockpot last night which saved me. Beef and red wine casserole, I contributed the rice. (She's antsy about using the gas hotplates when there's no one else around and would not touch the oven for love nor money. She grew up cooking on a wood stove, gas scares her)

So this arvo, had a day off and after doing the washing and grocery shopping and some gardening and stuff, made a french onion soup and got some bolognaise sauce simmering for a spag bol for tonights dinner.
