Tryout Tuesday

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Well, Tryout Tuesday came around far too quickly for me this month ;-)

I have been busy with Wedding Cards, custom Birthday Invites and a custom birthday card this month, so Tryout Tuesday ended up on a Thursday ;-)

I had a craving for Choc Chip Cookies and wanted to try THIS recipe from

It was very easy to mix up and I can see the basic mix being used in other combinations in the future ;-)

Somehow, I don't think these cookies will last very long - I have already had 4 as part of the stringent testing process ;-)  and will have another 2 with a cup of coffee a bit later this afternoon.

New Fountain Tomato Sauce - My Review

I am a regular visitor to - the people taking part in the forums are great, and the variety of recipes available is wonderful.

I recently had the opportunity to try the new Fountain Tomato Sauce with lower salt & sugar ;-)

First up I must declare that I have received this sample for free and that I am a diehard Heinz Big Red fan!

I had just recently discovered that tomato sauce had much more salt & sugar in it than I realised and this new sauce has 40% lower sugar 70% lower salt.

I must say I am impressed.  It has a slightly different flavour than other tomato sauces - lighter in taste and texture - and the one big bonus for me - it doesn't give me reflux ;-)
So I can have as much sauce as I like - and I like tomato sauce ;-)

Thank you Fountain, you have a new customer for your Tomato Sauce.
I already love your Sweet Chili Sauce and the Mustard Sauce.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Worldwide Photo Walk - Adelaide - UPDATED

I had an absolute ball yesterday - thanks to Andreas for organising the walk, and many thanks to Paula for her encouragement - it was so nice to see a familiar face on my very first Photo Walk ;-)

The day started off quite cold, wet and windy, but we persevered and were rewarded with some lovely sunshine and some great shots. 

UPDATED:  photos re-added 29th November 2012

My friend Paula - lovely to catch up with you again after $%$! years ;-)

There is a flickr group set up if you would like to have a look at some of the other group members' shots

There are some amazing pics from previous walks as well - I believe that this first photo walk will not be my last ;-)

Adelaide Photo Walk

I am going to participate in the Adelaide Photo Walk HERE which is part of the Worldwide PHoto Walk - I am quite excited ;-)

Hopefully the weather will be kind to us ;-)

I am so excited to be seeing Paula McManus again - it has been 30 years since we worked together at Mutual Community and I thank her for her encouragement with my photography - she is such an inspiration ;-)
