What qualities are important in a partner and how did you meet your partner?

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Papakura Courier

Hi neighbours, A survey of 2000 Kiwis has shown different generations place value different qualities when looking for love. Young adults, aged 16 to 34, ranked a sense of humour as the most important quality in a partner, where as most 55- to 64-year-olds viewed sharing values as more important than sharing a laugh together. Younger people were also more likely to judge potential partners on their looks and perhaps unsurprisingly, more likely to meet their significant other online. What do you think is the most important quality in a partner and how did you meet yours? Please write "NFP" if you don't want your comment to appear in stories.

Lemon Shortbread

Way Of Life Health Shop

This gluten free shortbread can made in shapes to fit a Xmas theme. It would make a lovely personal gift for a gluten free person packaged in a nice jar or box and tied with a ribbon.
250g butter
11/2 cups fine polenta
3/4 cup rice flour
3/4 cup icing sugar
1 tsp finely grated lemon zest
Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until it forms a smooth dough. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board and roll out to about 1cm thick. Cut into desired shapes and place on a tray covered with baking paper. Leave a 2 cm space between biscuits. Prick biscuits with a fork. Cook in preheated oven at 150C for around 25 minutes until crisp.
