Me - in one of my garden spots.
Mum was watching a bit of Rachel Ray on tv today, and she was making some nice meatballs with EVOO (Extra virgin olive oil), boy they looked tasty, but mum has leftover noodles to eat, so no meatballs for us. It reminded her of a local consumer show earlier in the week, where they blind tested olive oils sold to us in the supermarkets. Of the twenty they tested, the testers marked them in the rancid range, of tasting off. You see, cheap Italian and Spanish companies dump cheap oil into the Australian and New Zealand markets.
Locally produced oils are usually boutique bottles and very expensive. Mum had seen a similar show several years ago, and had stopped buying olive oil, as the ones she tried tasted awful, and she was quite often gotten sick stomachs. She switched to Canola oil, and now her tasty cooking, tastes tastier!!
She is not sure how much cooking will be done over the weekend. She does have some bananas to use up. Maybe a banana loaf or banana cake? Hope you all have some nice weekend plans.
