    My mum bought kashew (sp?) nut butter, because she's allergic to peanuts, and it was rank :P

    Red, try peanut butter and banana sarnies, or peanut butter and date.

    Lynn - isn't this hilarious? Is there an American cupboard without a jar of it?

    Well, our vegan won't know this Ollie - but a tall cold glass of milk is perfect to wash it down. But the stickiness is part of its charm. Makes the experience last longer. :hungry:

    Without peanut butter life wouldn't be worth living. I don't think I've ever seen an American cupboard, that didn't have a jar of peanut butter in it, Diane. Well I guess there may be a few that don't, some people are allergic to it. I can eat peanut butter all day long, but I can't eat peanuts anymore, they make me BaRf. One of the biggest disappointments of my life *sigh*.

    That's right Lynn, I have a friend who will die if she eats a peanut and doesn't get the medication to re-open her airway. So sad. Have you ever had a coke with peanuts in the bottom? Janice probably has?

    If you want a giggle, stick a lump of peanut butter to the roof of a labrador's mouth....Ben dog used to lie on his back making terrible slurpy noises trying to get it off, tail wagging furiously because he loved peanut butter. A radio programme on nature used to have a section named 'guess the animal noise', and I was sorely tempted to send in a recording of Ben licking out the empty peanut butter jar.

    If you like texture, then get the crunchy stuff (which I prefer), but if you don't, get the smooth.

    Can't imagine eating peanuts with bread.

    Anyway, what time do the eggs get turned? I can't remember. Good job I'm not looking after them!

    I used to like crunchy, but then switched to smooth a few years ago. Either way you definitely gotta try it, Kate :bigsmile:

    We're finding it a lot easier to turn the eggs using a chart. They got turned 5 times the last few days instead of 3...on Thursdays i finish early so i was home to turn them a few extra times, and on Friday my mum's home so she turned them a few extra today :thumbup:

    Creamy for me, Kate! CC is right - it just depends on how you feel about textured food... I would advise starting with creamy; reduces the number of variables you are dealing with (stickiness, peanuts in a sandwich - when you put it that way, does sound weird, etc...) If you like milk, here's the recipe: two slices of bread, peanut butter spread on one slice, then a spoonful of jam or jelly spread over the top of that. Cover with the other slice. Some (more cultured) people then cut the sandwich in half. Pour a nice cold glass of milk. Eat a bite of the sandwich. Follow with a sip of the milk. Then exclaim: AHHHH! :p

    I'm trying to remember that strange brown salty glaze the Auzies like spread on their sandwiches...what is it? Vitamix...? Arrggh. Can't remember... Isn't it something that has basically rotted?

    Whoa! Janice has some gossip !! We used to call our grandmothers: Red Grandma and Green Grandma. No one knows why. I took a picture of "Green Grandma" in the BART Station once, under fluorescent lighting and she came out entirely green. :D A tiny little green Danish grandma. So cute.

    Red, Neil sent me an e-mail once and told me that you called your Nana, Nana Bag Bag. Opal had gotten online in the old chat and typed a bit of gibberish and Neil and I exchanged e-mails to get it sorted out.

    Dianne, You mean Vegemite.
    It is like Marmite or Bovril but is Vegetarian. I like the stuff in moderation and have some in homage to my Austrlian colleagues.
    It will be the last jar as I have found out that it is all made in Melbourn and I now grudge the air miles it has used.

    Ew i tried those banana chips for the first time today...i thought they'd be quite healthy, but actually probably not by the time they've had all the sunflower oil, sugar etc added to them...I thought they were disgusting! :fierce: Seriously disappointed, all my friends said they were really nice. Mind you they all like apricots, and i can't stand them :angry:

    A lot of so called "healthy" foods aren't really, they just charge loads for the latest fad. "A little bit of what you fancy does you good", and "all things in moderation" were 2 of my nan's sayings and are extremely wise I believe!

    Yah, another one I like is to not eat anything my great grandmother wouldn't recognize as being food.

    Thanks Ollie - that's it (and Marmite, that too) What IS that stuff?

    Marmite is yeast extract. You either love it or hate it, there's no middle ground.

    At least marmite were clever enough to realise that and use it as their ad campaign. I hate it yet I'll happily drink oxo or bovril.

    CC - its amazing what causes people to think of me as a result of hencam...

    I've gone a different direction with my accent, as I've just ordered the Anniversary Edition (only thing I could get) of Coronation Street from Netflix. Can hardly wait. I watched it when I lived in Canada from 1970-73 (approx.)

    Neil is planning to move the camera out of the coop and focus it onto the incubator when the time count down gets there. We will have live hatching.
    Possibly would be a good idea to film some of it too for the benefit of thoses who miss them all.

    Red, I hope you are wrong about none of the eggs hatching. :sad: I worry every day that I've done something wrong and I've killed my baby ducks in the incubator. It takes between 28 and 33 days for ducks to hatch. So far so good, 10 eggs are still developing. If they die, I'm going to feel like a murderer. I put 7 duck eggs under one of my broody little hens in hopes that she will be able to hatch them, if the ones in the incubator don't survive.
