Update on the mice and a recipe.......

oh and it is meatless, just in case you're thinking I have found a good way to use up all the dead mice...LOL

Anyhow, the mice situation is that I only caught two mice on Sunday/Monday, BUT I have managed to lose one of the traps???? I mean it's gone, both me and dh have looked and we can't see it? It's the strangest thing ever. We know where they are coming in though, so that's good; we just have to get on with blocking up the holes!!

I tried a new recipe on Monday called Jumbled Pasta Bake from this website I didn't have any Carnation Milk, so just used regular milk. I had some zucchini that needed to be used up, so this was a good recipe to use it in. I split it into two casseroles and each one will feed three people. I will freeze the second one, and I used a combination of breadcrumbs, parsley and grated cheese as a topping, as I didn't have mozzarella or Parmesan cheese for a topping.



By the way for those of you who look for a post first thing in a morning, the Internet was so slow last night it was crazy. I attempted to upload a photo a gave up there was no way it was going to be doing that. The sooner dh sorts out something else the better it will be!!!

I should have mentioned this yesterday but this is my 701 post!!

In our previous house we had a mouse motorway running through our airing cupboard in the bathroom. We once lost two traps - we concluded the traps snapped shut on the tails of the mice and they ran off plus the trap!

Maybe you caught a mouse that took the trap away?! Or a rat?! Or a raccoon?! :-)

Only G. Gordon Liddy would take the mice!

Gill, if it's a small hole you can put an SOS pad (or a couple) in the hole (if it's not too big) until you can get it fixed. They won't go through it!!

MCC is Mennonite Central Committee. They have a huge sale each year. It's a two day sale where they auction off quilts, have a pancake breakfast, sell craft goods, baking, veggies and meat along with books and yard sale items. All the money raised this year went to projects in the Sudan.
