Just cooking up some rhubarb, lemonbalm and apple (the first two ingredients are from my own garden), I don't know how it will turn out but probably good. 😃

Sharon from Te Atatu South

They were in my fridge and needed using up, so I chopped 'em up and am slow-cooking them/stewing them in the wok which I use for cooking everything (including marmalade! I clean it out well between uses though). I've stewed/boiled each of the three ingredients by themselves in the past and it turned out well, and a friend was stewing rhubarb and apple the other week, so thought I would do the same and use up what I had in my fridge! 😃 YES, I am cooking it with the lid on, but you can't see through the steamy lid so I took it off so you could see the individual ingredients! 😃 Enjoy!!!!!!!! 😃

LOCKDOWN

Linda from Henderson

UNBELIEVABLE!!. When is this ever going to end? Come November 1st, no doubt there will still be ongoing restrictions to our freedom.
What I resent so much, is that those of us who have been vacccinated for months, played the game, did every thing we were meant to, and still we are locked down.
All these Govt. promises that when Auckland reaches 90% vaccination we will have more freedom. What a joke. 89% vacccinated, how can it take until 1st November to vaccinate 1%.
I am so angry at all these months of being dictated to as to how I can live my life. Or not live it, might be more accurate!
