Some of our chickens are moulting so I cooked up some linseed to add to their mash for an extra protein hit. I soaked 1 cup of linseed for 3 hours then drained off that water and added just enough fresh water to cover the seeds. I then cooked it for 30 minutes until the water turned into a gelatinous consistency.
Over the next few days I will mix this in with their mash at a rate of 1 tablespoon per bird per day.
I am busy trying to use things up from my freezer that have been there a while and today it was time to use up some frozen bananas. I am making meals and things for my brother in law and sister inlaw who just had a baby so I thought a few slices of my Banana Berry Bread might be a nice treat. It is so easy and tasty and you can find the recipe here. I sliced half of it up and froze the portions in individual serves which I will be taking to my brother in law and sister in laws.
I will be adding the quiche to the other meals I have also made them and will be taking them down to them in Brisbane during the week.
Finally I have made a big batch of dumplings using Celia's recipe found here but with a few changes like using beef mince since that is what we have lots of.
I really like dumplings as a quick go to meal or addition to a meal and they are especially good for if you have visitors for a meal at short notice. They freeze well and cook quickly which makes them a great meal at short notice.
