Paprika Mayonnaise (Makes approx. 150 ml)
Ingredients
1 egg yolk (room temperature)
1 pinch salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoons vinegar or lemon juice
125 ml canola oil (room temperature)
1 teaspoon paprika powder

Method
1. Place the yolk in a clean bowl.
2. Whisk in the salt and the lemon juice or vinegar, mustard.
3. While continuing to whisk, start pouring in oil, drop by drop.
4. Once the emulsion has begun to form, start adding the oil in a steady thin stream, whisking constantly.
5. When the sauce is thick, check seasoning.
6. Add one teaspoon paprika powder.
7. To thin, whisk in a little warm water or more vinegar.

Useful Tips
Mayonnaise may curdle there is too much oil, or if is added too quickly, or if the mixture is under-whisked. However, a curdled emulsion can be rescued by very gradually whisking it into either a fresh egg yolk or a spoonful of boiling water in a clean bowl.

To avoid oily-tasting mayonnaise use fresh oil which does not have a strong flavour. Canola and rice bran oil are two examples.

Swimming warnings at Auckland beaches

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Auckland Council has alerted beach-goers to 39 city spots that have a "high risk" of illness from swimming.

The warnings come after yesterday's deluge of rain that overloaded parts of the storm and wastewater networks. A black alert indicating a very high risk of illness from swimming was issued for Castor Bay just after 3pm yesterday.

It's recommended that people do not enter the water while the warnings are in place.
Check here to see where's safe to swim.

Not as daft as it may look🚙🚙

Fiona from Henderson

I can see it now ... a row of dead electric cars on the roadside after making the decision to do a road trip.
Along comes a petrol fueled vehicle with the means to bring to live the electric cars.
Silly? I think not😄😄😄

Ginger Bread - Neutral Person? Really? What is this World coming to?

Matt from Henderson

Bikkie back lash misses joke - As in Today's Western Leader, Thursday 14 November

The Tannery in New Lynn is selling gender-neutral gingerbread people.

SIOBHAN DOWNES ‘‘It’s become a really good conversation piece in the cafe.’’Andre Cettina An Auckland cafe is spicing things up by ditching the traditional ‘‘ginger bread man’’for a more inclusive title. About a month ago, The Tannery in New Lynn changed the label on its jar of biscuits tor ead:‘‘gingerbread gender-netural person’’. Owner Andre Cettina said the move had been inspired by a customer who questioned why the human-shaped biscuits were called ‘‘gingerbread men’’ and not ‘‘ginger bread people’’.‘‘It was completely tongue-in-cheek at the start,’’ he said. ‘‘But it’s become a really good conversation piece in the cafe.’’Cettina said because the jar was on the front counter, customers had been taking photos and sharing them on social media. ‘‘We’ve had a lot of people commenting saying‘ stop being so pedantic, it’s just a biscuit’.I had to reply to them going, ‘Did you miss the whole point?
However,Cettina said he had also received positive feedback from customers who saw the humour in the name change.‘‘It used to be that 90 per cent of the time we sold [the biscuits ],it was to kids. There’s alot more people buying them now, which is quite funny.’’The Tannery was not the only business to have given the gingerbread man a modern makeover. In April, UK super-market chain Co-op Food said it was launching a new gingerbread ‘‘person’’.The supermarket ran a campaign asking the public to come up with name ideas for the gender-neutral character, who was eventually called:‘‘Crumbs’’.

My opinion is why are you changing a sex of a fairy tale story which is already a part of kid's stories of today?

If anyone does not know the sex of themselves, check between your legs what sex you are.

Are we getting to PC Madness about this? Wake up people. Jesus is coming soon. He will come to judge this world and everything in it.
