Morning all I need help from either my American or Canadian cousins.Last year someone posted a recipe for fresh cranberry sauce. It was very simple and tasted fantastic.Can anyone help. My husband was giving Jillibus the credit for it but he has a soft spot for her !! Thanks

12:43 am

there's probably a recipe on the bag of fresh cranberries
12:43 am
FranMag

i made a cranberry grape compote for the second time this year. that's my favorite cranberry sauce
12:44 am
flosey

just boil them with a bit of water, sugar to taste, some add orange juice
12:44 am
flosey

sounds good Fran
12:44 am
FranMag

i think the basic recipe is one cup of sugar to a cup of cranberries, orange zest and whole cloves for flavor. i've done that one too.
12:44 am
jillibus

just pick up a can, lol
12:46 am

3:20 am
lynxxx

aahh - though you might have a bun in the oven!
3:21 am
dcseain

i thought you might have meant a bunny. lives in the garden, does it?
3:21 am
Fishbulb

hehehe... not quite! Though I have a yule log to ice in a moment and some mince pies to bake. Close LOL
3:21 am
Fishbulb

she's an indoor bunny - has a hutch in the living room, but free roaming when we're here
3:23 am
dcseain

i've a house rabbit. he lives upstairs, behinda gote away from the rommie's dog.
3:23 am
dcseain

i think i finally found a hutch the cats cannot get into.
3:25 am
dcseain

icon test
3:25 am
Fishbulb

aww cute. i love having an indoor rabbit, thankfully the only other pets we have are fish so no troubles for us with hutches etc
3:26 am
dcseain

bun-bun has been more social lately, which has been nice for me :)
3:28 am
Fishbulb

mine too! she's always been quite loving, but i generally have to go to her, but lately she's been coming to me and snuggling up.
3:28 am
ardilla

yah! i got 100 words without using lickety's!
3:29 am
Fishbulb

yay ardilla!
3:29 am
dcseain

well done, ardilla!
3:29 am
dcseain

maybe it's the weather, fish.
3:29 am
dcseain

this is so far he the coldest winter of his life here.
3:30 am
FranMag

Aloha everyone!
3:30 am
Fishbulb

yeah, i was thinking the same. she moulted LOADS this year then became more loving all of a sudden - probably just wanted something warm to sit near - LOL
3:30 am
Fishbulb

Aloha Fran!
3:30 am

3:32 am
FranMag

dc, that's a great looking machine, even squished. :-)
3:33 am
ardilla

hi fish
3:33 am
dcseain

yes, i'm afraid to look at the cost though
3:33 am
Fishbulb

hi ardilla :)
3:34 am
FranMag

yeah, better not to, just imagine it's affordable and wouldn't take up all the counter space in your kitchen.
3:34 am
Fishbulb

they're not cheap machines and you have to plumb them in but they are beautiful and well-made. On the downside, just imagine how much polishing it'd take to keep it clean - you probably don't want one really.
3:35 am
FranMag

keep it clean? well now you've really killed the fantasy fish!
3:36 am
Fishbulb

hehe oopsy
3:36 am
lynxxx

I love my coffee too. Isn't is funny how much looks come into the 'right' coffee machine, not just its coffee making ability
3:36 am
dcseain

actually ,going to their site, they're not that big
3:36 am
FranMag

probably because it's an appliance that is visible all the time lynxxx
3:37 am
dcseain

yes, i agree with fran.
3:37 am
FranMag

ooh, it has bakelite knobs
3:37 am
dcseain

3:38 am
dcseain

ooh, ur right, they do
3:39 am
FranMag

now that i see the scale, these are really lovely
3:40 am
dcseain

and they're only in the 7630 euro range lol
3:40 am
dcseain

760 euro that should read :">
3:41 am
FranMag

is that all? might as well get one in each finish.
3:41 am
dcseain

i do like the brass ones
3:42 am
FranMag

the little micro model would be nice to have
3:44 am
dcseain

someday, maybe. being single, i can hold out hope :)

4:23 am
blueruin

i hate it when that happens
4:24 am
Catie

when you have 3 birthdays in December, it makes present buying interesting!!!!
4:24 am
blueruin

ahh! that's a lot of birthdays
4:25 am
blueruin

my family's pretty spread out, i'm lucky
4:26 am
BabbleRabble

finishing is only as important as you make it
4:26 am
Catie

a small question before I go back to puzzling over the grid - when the grid changes, is it possible to see the words you missed out?
4:27 am
herinfernallady

In Archives but give it a couple of hours
4:27 am
Catie

4:28 am
BabbleRabble

Catie...babble Expert is available on via Lickety - who wrote it - he prefers only to send to Pro players (ie paid up). There is no cost but this is an understanding he made with DrG (who owns babble). When you go Pro, contact Lickety - his email address is on his Clue List

Sounds delightful Lillian - have a great time
5:21 am
Catie

I usually finished exams early so I'd write antidisestablishmentarianism at the top of a sheet of paper and amuse myself thinking up words
5:21 am
lilliann

i will, thank you lyn. you have a good christmas too.
5:22 am
lynxxx

Sounds like this game will be right up your alley then Catie. Very addictive though!
5:23 am
Catie

I know, lol - was supposed to be buying birthday presents and couldn't leave the computer
5:24 am
lilliann

i didn't play yesterday and had withdrawal symptoms....i shouldn't be playing now either as i've got too much to do, but can't help myself.
5:25 am
Catie

lol, lili, my husband works night shift so he isn't here to say "haven't you wrapped those presents yet?"
5:26 am
lilliann

my husband and daughter always say they are babble widowed.....and no point talking to me because i'm in babbleland!!
5:27 am
mypotential

our christmas presents are all wrapped and under the tree - a first for our family!
5:28 am
lilliann

i've only got a few more left to wrap but run out of paper and cellotape, so waiting for the bairn and her grandad to get me some more, so good excuse to babble for a bit!
5:28 am

5:30 am
Catie

the only problem I have with real trees is the spiders
5:31 am
herinfernallady

We don't have a tree here
5:31 am
lilliann

are they normal spiders catie or horrible ones?
5:33 am
Catie

ginormous - is that a babble word? big bush spiders. Mind you, I run from anything that even remotely looks like a spider
5:33 am
lilliann

i've just put half our tree up this year as not beening here i couldn't be bothered to put the whole one up, and i only put it up for the bairn
5:33 am
lilliann

do they bite catie?
5:33 am
lilliann

being here even
5:34 am
Catie

I've never found out - the poor things bite the dust if they're found in the house. I save lizards, frogs, beetles and sundry other beasties but can't handle spiders
5:36 am
lilliann

i don't mind little ones but not tarantulas, but saying that we don't have them here unless they're pets...and i wouldn't want one....how can you cuddle a tarantula....i'll stick to cats!
5:37 am
Catie

one of my sons had a pet redback, I prefer cats too
5:37 am
herinfernallady

Tarantulas have a soft exo skeloton and explode when dropped
5:37 am
herinfernallady

Catie they are NOT pets
5:37 am
Catie

yuck!!!
5:38 am
lilliann

oh, nice herin!
5:38 am
herinfernallady

That is the sad thing about trantulars they don't live if dropped. They make good pets though
5:38 am
Catie

lady, you'd have to meet my son to know that he does quite bizarre things - like catching flies to feed the darn thing!
5:39 am
lilliann

but i wouldn't get that close to find out....i suppose they could be a good burglar deterrent!
5:39 am
herinfernallady

ewww. How old is he?
5:40 am
Catie

he
5:41 am
Catie

he's in his thirties now but that was quite some time back - he was living in Canberra in a flat and couldn't have 'pets', lol
5:41 am
herinfernallady

Ok
5:43 am

5:48 am
lilliann

why do they do that, we might aswell have it before christmas...i'm not bothered about presents, i just like to watch the bairn open hers.
5:48 am
lilliann

anyway, i'm chatting again...going now...bye...{poof}
5:52 am

6:21 am

Good morning Babblers....no way I'll do 327 today...too much to do.
6:21 am
phandmd

Hi Angle, Scrab! I myself am not a huge fan of big grids so that would be a nightmare
6:21 am
Scrabbler

chiley--how is the baby?
6:22 am
chiley

Scrabbler, all is well with the little one. Dr. told her to switch to barley
6:22 am
Scrabbler

I prefer 150-170.
6:22 am
chiley

didn't give her anything to put on the rash or anything.
6:22 am
Scrabbler

She can continue to use the Aveeno.
6:23 am
chiley

yes
6:23 am
phandmd

I prefer 120 and less. I love the tiny ones
6:23 am
phandmd

Is the rash a diaper rash? When my babies got that, I used Balmex and loved it.
6:23 am
Scrabbler

Then you can finish and get on with your day, right, phandmd?
6:24 am
chiley

He didn't seem concerned at all
6:24 am

Hi, my name is Jan and I'm a Babble addict. Starts innocently enough. Turn on the computer at the flip and see 327 words--yikes, no way I finish the grid so I won't bother. Weeelll, maybe just a little Babbling. Types 85 words and off to bed. Next morning, remembers grid is too big, has Christmas shopping to do. Sneaks onto Babble anyway. Just for a minute. Realizes after a while that there are only 60 to go now. Retreats to Lickety. Tells husband that breakfast will be brunch instead. Finishes grid. Immediately starts wondering if tomorrow's grid will be a good one. Yeah, total addict...

Well, Hursy, they didn't at that particular Sci-fi con. But perhaps there are other more Cultural Klingons out there.

I've had lots of offers of help, but I'm just not up to it. I'll still see everyone anyway..I think we'll do it on New Year's Eve, instead.
4:15 pm

I despise New Year's Eve, so maybe it will make it tolerable. Hey - guess I am a Scrooge about something after all, Scarlet! ;)
4:16 pm
Scarlet

I must make us some dinner now... best of Babbling to all... {{peri and Krista}}} You are all wonderful friends... best wishes to all, Krista, and I hope your little guy recovers quickly! No worries, Krista, I hate New Year as much as I hate Christmas... I am absolutely the Grinchiest person I know.... except for the grandchildren and I am a big moosh-ball!

We'll set up a babble-bubble just outside the spaceport, with our computers linked up and pipe hot coffee/tea/cider/grog directly to the stations, with a lovely big jacuzzi in one section staffed by robots who don't care how much cellulite we have.
