WELCOME to my BLOG
I’m slowly working towards some simplicity within the home, but hey! It’s a lot of hard work!
I love having a go at growing my own veges and always use herbs fresh from my garden. I try to plant from seed whenever I can and have learnt to save and share my own seed for the following year. I make Award Winning preserves and pickles; and my husband brews Award Winning boutique beers as well. I love to stockpile and try to limit quick trips to the shops. I dabble in bread making and enjoy making my own stocks too.
I enjoy feeding my family good hearty meals, nothing like those tiny restaurant stacks you have to look for on the plate. My husband maintains our vehicles and machinery and we both enjoy fabricating on a small scale mostly relying on metal & timber recyclers for any materials needed.
While I don’t always have time to reply to comments, I love reading them. I hope you enjoy your stay and I hope you learn something new because I love sharing what I learn, and I'm always looking for another new skill myself.

French Onion Chops
I can't remember who gave me this idea, but I have been cooking them like this since I was about 19, maybe younger.....They just melt in your mouth...and that's all I can say really.....They sell themselves!
Simply spray your foil and add two chops per parcel.....one per person is usually enough.....
Sprinkle with French Onion Soup Mix...I've linked to a bulk recipe for the soup mix where 3 1/2 tablespoons equates to one packet mix. One packet mix or equivalent will be enough to cover both sides of 6 chops.
I first sprinkle the soup mix over the chop, then rub it in slightly, turn the chop over, and repeat. With your foil sprayed, wrap up the chops, and bake in a moderate oven for an hour......
It's mushroom time around here again and I have just picked my second crop....so I added some freshly picked mushrooms to the pockets too.
I have written about growing mushrooms here, here and here.....I even made a Mushroom Ketchup here.....which is lovely to use as a concentrated stock.
I encourage everyone to have a go at these chops...they are so delicious as they just melt in your mouth........If you do have a go at this recipe....please come back and tell me about it.
