Lucky you, Pam. I'm on a self-imposed low protein diet since being wrongly diagnosed with CKD (chronic kidney disease) and reading all about the nasty stuff we eat with sodium, potassium, animal protein (including cow's milk) and phosphate. I realise my reaction in avoiding it all is over the top, but better safe than sorry - and it's much easier to get fresh fruit and veg in VN than most western countries, anyway. And I've gotta say I quite like the taste of soy or almond milk on my fruit and nuts breakfast these days! Haven't touched alcohol since before covid, and now I've been off red meat for at least six months. Would love to say I feel better for it but the only difference I've noticed so far is a small loss of weight! (but lots of mental comfort knowing I'm at least trying to do the right thing!). Got a mate arriving from Oz in a few weeks and he's a big drinker and definite "big English breakfast" fan so that's gonna be interesting!!!  ;D

I have my one airfryer and an electric pressure cooker made by the same people who made my airfryer.  I like them bother but I love bacon and sausages done in AF and stews in my pressure cooker.  People seem to be able to make lovely poached eggs and boiled eggs but I have had no luck.

Thanks Lee - very illuminating! I'll supply beer on behalf of myself and Terry (Terry please note!) if we make it to Oz and SA on the planned June/July trip. But if it's too cold we'll head north (Brisbane and Cairns) and leave south for next Tet (early 2025).

Thanks for your concern guys.

This is the typical of the action of a membership bot (usually from (content deleted by Admin), etc). It happens, generally, about twice a year. It may be tied to activities in establishments of 'higher learning' as their courses cover subjects which allow students to author software such as SPAM, auto logons, worms, etc. Software add on modules for the website will cost $$$$$$$ (probably lots).
All the recent request for registration, on the site (which is what the are) have been deleted. Ahh the troubles of an Administrator, sob. Send beer to home address  ;D ;D ;D 8)

It's up to 359 views now so must surely be a glitch in the system - I'll email Lee (cc to you) to see if he can shed any light on the subject because some of the other posts have even higher view numbers!
Btw, we're back in VN now from a coupla weeks downunder and I seriously feel more at home here than in Australia because they haven't gotten around to making rules for everything in VN (yet) and we can pretty much do whatever we want - I love it! I also feel much safer from respiratory diseases with everyone wearing face masks (mainly to protect against motorbike fumes but also useful against Covid and similar airborne stuff - especially as we're surrounded by Saigon River on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other, with constant sea breezes carrying lots of nasties).

I'd love to help Linh and Sunny in the kitchen but they won't hear of it - especially when it comes to Vietnamese meals! And now we're downunder for just a couple of weeks (Sunny's school holidays for Lunar New Year: "Tet"), we're just eating out most of the time because short of time to get things done without spending it in the kitchen! Happy days - and let's hope the world calms down a bit in 2024 as I'm not sure I can take too much more of the madness we've seen in the past 4 years since Covid emerged! We've just had our sixth vaxes but the "bomb proof" westerners in Oz make me nervous walking around without masks - it's an airborne disease but they reckon face masks are too uncomfortable!

Have any of you erstwhile chefs purchased an air fryer? Since getting married I have not bothered with cooking only the simple things, relied on my wife, lazy git I know. But buying one it has kindled an interest in cooking as it is so simple to use and does away with all the pots and pans used on a conventional stove/oven. Take care all
