DISAPPOINTED!! community pantry trashed

Naylar Neighbourly Lead from Te Atatu South

Hi Neighbours,

We have put up a pantry to help those who may need some help with food from time to time and also give others the opportunity to share with the community.

Hi Neighbours,

We have put up a pantry to help those who may need some help with food from time to time and also give others the opportunity to share with the community.

But someone went and trashed it. Picture below is one of our children maintaining the pantry after they had made a beautiful sign for it.

We are teaching our children responsibility and it saddens them to see that their hard work has been trashed.

If you don't want anything fro the pantry thats OK. But please as a community could we keep an eye out for those who would want to trash a great initiative to help our community.

Thank you Kingdly,
Naylar Uisa

Celia Hay's soufflés served hot from the oven are as impressive as they are comforting.

Ingredients
1 knob Butter, melted, for greasing
¼ cup Breadcrumbs
4 Eggs, at room temperature, separated
290 ml Milk
40 g Butter
30 g Flour
1 tsp Dried mustard
1 pinch Cayenne pepper
85 g Cheddar cheese, grated

Directions
1. Heat the oven to 200C. Place a baking sheet on the shelf in the top third of the oven.
2. Brush ramekins or souffle dishes with the melted butter.Coat lightly with breadcrumbs by tilting the ramekins so the breadcrumbs stick to the butter. Tip out any breadcrumbs that do not stick.
3. Separate the eggs. Be sure to get no yolk in the egg whites. Put the whites in a bowl, ready to whisk.
4. Warm the milk in a pot or microwave.
5. Melt the butter in a saucepan, stir in the flour and cook for 45 seconds.
6. Gradually add the warmed milk, stirring until smooth. Remove from the heat, add the mustard, cayenne pepper, grated cheese and stir in the egg yolks. Taste the mixture — it should have good flavour. Season with salt and pepper if required.
7. Whisk the egg whites until just stiff and mix a spoonful into the cheese mixture to loosen it. Fold in the remainder of the whites with a metal spoon or spatula. Spoon the mixture into the ramekins so they are twothirds full.
8. With the back of a spoon or your fingertip make a one centimetre rim around edge of the souffle mixture. This gives a “top hat’’ appearance to the cooked souffle.
9. Bake for 8-10 minutes until well risen and golden brown. Avoid opening the door until the last minutes of cooking time. To check if the souffle is cooked, wobble the ramekin gently. If it is very wobbly, cook for a little longer

I went in our downstairs bedroom (spare room) this morning to open the windows and heard something fall only to realise someone has tried to break into our home. Obviously they’re not a great burglar but still. We’re located on Brashier Circle so if you see anything suspicious please report it. They used these with no luck of getting in. I’ve made a report to the police and have installed extra locks on all our windows. So good luck to the prick that did this I hope your hands fall off asshole!
