Last night

August 9th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

We went to my mumís place again last night. She called me while I was making dinner. Iíve asked her to get me something from her work to give as a birthday present to a friend. Her birthday is not until next month but Iím not sure I will see her next month so I will be giving it to her tonight, it just happened weíve organised a get together few weeks ago, so it came just in time. I gave my mum $10 for it.

While there I helped my mum make some more empanadas, she is getting more and more orders now. She is actually finding it hard to keep up. Last night she was trying to make 120, one order. She got a friend who does cake decorations of some sort and has an online business for it. Anyway she asked my mum if she wants to put her empanada on her website, my mum actually said no because she is afraid that she wonít be able to do it. Iím actually thinking of getting her an empanada maker, Iím not sure where to get it or if it is even available here in Australia. It will be a good birthday/Christmas present for her. The bread maker has help her make the dough but she still needs to roll it out. Iíve actually got her to try the pasta maker but she didnít like it because itís too thin. And our pasta maker is hopeless you pretty much need two people to use it. Itís alright for making small amount of pasta but I think it will get tiresome if you need to make a lot of it.

Also she asked me if I wanted some instant coffee, this was one thing that I wanted to get at Costco, we are half way to our last jar. So I said yes! She got a box of 6/200g jars of Nescafe Gold Blend. She got all of them for $40 so less than $7 a jar. I just looked on-line and they are around $16-18 a jar at the supermarket. At Costco a similar type would probably be around $13-14. She got them from another friend who works for Nestle. Apparently the customer/s didnít like them because of the jar design; I think they got consumers complaining about it. I can see why from just looking at it the jar is too top heavy and would be hard to grip (esp for small hands like mine) when opening it. I got two. The jar donít bother me I will just put it into my coffee canister once I open it. Also score a bag of powdered milk, also from Nestle, DH use powdered milk all the time for making yogurt. I will give her $20 for all of them next time I see her. It will come out of the grocery budget.

    Nice deal on the coffee! And you may very well find something perfect for the empanadas on the internet, try restaurant supply stores.

    Good deal on the coffee and planning ahead on the birthday gift. Those empanadas must be something else if the demand is that high!
