So oinky flu - the main kindy in town, the main primary school, the junior high, the table tennis club.... you name it, the oinky flu has taken it over. But NOT our kindy and our primary school - YET. Tis just a matter of time though. I have resigned self to fact that we will get it soon too - and in a way, it would be a relief as then could stop bloody worrying about it and ringing up hospitals to ask about vaccinations only to be fobbed of with 'we have no information' type answers.
I have enough bum bullets in the fridge, cool pillows, forehead and armpit cooler pads etc - not to mention masks and handgel. Hub and I are getting the normal flu jabs - me soon and hub in December. Why? Because he can afford to take the time off before December if he gets the flu but after that he is too busy and apparantly getting the jab now will mean it will wear off by about February? Is this correct? Or is hub just being a silly know it all, I don't need a fucking map to get anywhere, man??
Despite my night English class getting cancelled, I did still have the arvo one. It was our Halloween lesson and I had candy for Africa to give out so they were all very well behaved - although one girl said 'Katy shite yo' at one point and I had to talk her down a bit. Can't have that kind of shit
. They are eight for christ sake. I asked her if she spoke like that to her teacher at school - no. After that they were full of please and thankyous. Patronising eight year olds.
Made the wannabe lasagne thing tonight - and here is the recipe for any interested parties.
Ingredients (meat sauce)
- One medium onion
- One medium carrot
- Mince (tonight I used 200g of beef)
- One packet of Nepolitan pasta sauce (I used meat sauce the first time but I think nepolitan is better)
- Cooked rice - usally just put in all the left overs. Today was about two and a half rice bowls full which is more than usual.
- I have put mushrooms and peppers in it before too
- 20g butter
- big heaped spoon of white flour
- 400 ml of milk
- two slices of melty cheese (usually use handful of grated cheese though)
- handful of finally cut spinnach (two cupped hands)
- salt and pepper if you want
How to: cook meat and onions, add carrot (grated so kiddies eat it) and then napolitan sauce and rice. cook until all yummy and nice. While doing this whip up cheese sauce. Melt butter in pot, add flour and whisk, add milk then cheese then spinnach.Pour meat then cheese sauce into ovenproof dish and top with more cheese - grated better but tonight I had to make do with processed melty shit.
