Kinda looks that way, Ash. Less aggro but less pleasure also!

When I retired I did woodwork as a hobby I enjoyed but there's only so many wooden things that can be made for the house and friends. Then I found Stained glass and reckoned it would be a good thing to get into. A few wee strokes and an operation soon put paid to that kind of idea.
Now I have discovered Raw Cakes and the beauty of them is even when It comes ot as a disaster it still tastes nice.

The top cake was a Passion Fruit and Avocado cheesecake.
The bottom one Mango and Banana cheesecake.

Thanks taurus, what I like about them is there's no baking. All you need is a food processor and a fridge.

The good thing about these ones is that they are made from fruit and nuts and are vegan. Not that im vegan I just find it a fascinating that such a great taste can come from pulverised the ingredients into a liquid and they come out tasting so good. I have people already asking to buy so I don't have that problem of having to eat them myself. lol

Pinterest or YouTube Alex although when the recipice calls for Coconut Oil dont use it. Coconut oil is used as a Gelatine replacement but its problem is it melts at room temperature and the cake melts and collapses. Not so good in this climate.
If your not worried about the vegan part just use gelatine.

Good for you Dave. I'm impressed by your resilience as much as anything. I do much of our cooking and hunt out variations on a theme, things we both like but a bit different from the day to day stuff. As for gas, I'm a fan, as for cleaning, where's my mammy biggrin.gif

Hi y'all biggrin.gif

Diary anniversary unsure.gif

I know it's been a while since I was on here last and I can't remember when but I remember when I first came on and that was 10 years ago ehen I'd broken my right wrist and was unable to do much else other than sit by my pooter.
10 years later and I'm, slowly, recovering from another broken wrist but this time it's the left rolleyes.gif
How it happenned was one of those things that Mary calls TT (typiical Tomi). I was hanging some washing on a drying frame on our balcony which is about 2 feet higher than the garden and decided that I needed a second frame so pulled the first a bit bit further to make room and flew off the balcony where the steps to the garden path are and landed on my back on the path which is another foot deeper than the garden and cracked my wrist in doing so on the curb stone seperating the path from the garden.
Mary wanted to know why I didn't put the fram,es on the lawn in the first place.
Since I was able to move my fingers in spite of the pain I didn't think I'd broken anything but the next day, a Saturday, I'd had an other think about that and let Mary take me to the local hospiyal where it was put in a cast and arranged to be operated on the Tuesday ... and that was where the fun really began.
I was introduced to a charming young lady who would perform the operation. She led a team of five other charming young ladies and I thought my luck was in: with all these charming young ladies around me what could go wrong?
Enter the aneasthatist, a Dr Rutherford whose name alone inspired a certain confidence: Ernest Rutherford was the father of atomic chain reaction.
Hr had previously asked me if I wanted full narcose or local aneasthetic: I opted for the latteer in the hope that I could watch< but the charming young surgeon wasn't keen on that although I had explained that it wouldn't be the first time.
I was surprised to learn though that tthe art of aneasthetising was to be carried out by going for a nerve accessed through the armpit and the good Dr Rutherford, rather than doing the job himself, would instruct the charming young lady on how she would find the nerve using ultrasonic which I was able to follow on the monitor which they were using.
"See it? Right there. That's the one we're going for" says he ... and in she goes with the needle ... and I nearlyy leave the table.
"Did that hurt?" says he, full of what came across as geunine astonishment.
"Yes, Doctor, that really did hurt".
The procedure rep[eatyed itself twice more with the same stupid question but receiving no answer: although I swore toswelf that if he asked that again I'd demonstrate my disgust by whacking him on the nose with the good fist.
4th time lucky and the forearm started to feel numb so I figured the charming lady had finally hit the nerve.
What followed next was an even bigger surprise for me> every step of the way through the op. was dictated by the good Doctor Rutherford and, seemingly - for I couldn't see fot myself, followeed by the charming novice.
When the work was completed the final surp[rise awaited me.
"Will vou raise four arm high?2 asked the charming learner whom I opblidged by raising my whole arm into the air above me ... only for the aneasthetised forearm to swing down causing me to be smacked in te face by my own hand ... right on the nose.: none of the charming ladies had expected that to happen I guess.
What happened during my two overnight stys was also an experience ... I'm not boring you, am I?
I normally have a high pain threshold but the pain was was a bit more than bearable and kept me awake; despite the intraveinus drip. When I saw that the container was enpty I rang for a replacement and a male night-nurse eventually poked his head into the room and I pointed out that I was out of painkiller.
"You can't have any more" answered the sullen young man.
"But I need more" I replied, " So see what you can do, please".
He returned, even more sullen, and asked if I could stand: a doctore will see me.
I said that I supposed that I could and with that he said, "Then follow me" and left me to get out of bed and go after him to the nurses station where I was informed that an other, door faced, girl said "Follow me" and headed off toward the lifts with me, bare footed asnd nare arsed, following about 10 yards behind ... same on the way back.
That was last week in May.
Before leaving hospt. the charming young lady surgeon, rfemember her? asked me to make a fist, "That's most imprtant" (she must have read in the notes that the good aaaaaaaaaaaaadr arutherford might have given her) but making a fist was out of the qhestion with a hand swollen to almost twice its size.
two months later; and still with swollen hand, I visited a local doctor who looked at the Xrays ai'd managed to procure with difficulty from the hospt by saying my physiotherapist requires them, and the doctor shook his head. #His eife made some new Xrays.
He asked me to pass the splint to him which I'd worn as support since the op.
I thought he might try to reshaPed it ... but he binned it instead and I did have to laugh at that.
"The plate is too far forward and the screws are too long. It all needs to br removed."
"Who'll do that, Doctor"
"I'll do that. Unlike the surgeon who performed this", (I had related the above to him) "I've done this more than 100 times! (He is a hand specialist)
He has booked me down for a December date to give me time to build the arm back again and I gladly agreed to that.

My big mate Kriss said "Tomi, you're so small that any screws would be too long for you"
Bog off Kriss laugh.gif

So many typos there (I have a new keyboard because of my eye problem but I still need a bit more practice tongue.gif )
Main thing is it wasn't his effie but rather his wife who made the new Xrays. smile.gif
