OUR FAMILY ISN’T ALONE IN OUR LOVE FOR CHICKEN Chicken Tuesday; although these two words really don’t rhyme, it’s midweek poetry in our house with one night’s dinner sorted. A roasted chook (in the oven, upside down to keep the breast moist, for an hour at 220°C), served with oven-roasted chips, frozen peas, and gravy. The kids love it and so do the adults. If I’m feeling inspired, I avoid the chips and gravy, and add avocado and lemon oil to the plate instead. It’s on high rotation (every Tuesday, as the name suggests) and leftover wings go in the lunchbox the next day. Our family isn’t alone in our love for the bird. In August, on taste.com.au, the number-one ingredient searched for was chicken. It’s no surprise, really, as it’s so…

“O, the mulberry-tree is of trees the queen! Bare long after the rest are green; But as time steals onwards, while none perceives; Slowly she clothes herself with leaves.”DINAH MARIA CRAIK, ENGLISH NOVELIST AND POET AND LOOK OUT FOR Corn | Loquats | Papaya | Raspberries | Watercress | Zucchini flowers | Mulberries They say good things come to those who wait and this certainly rings true with mulberries – it can take up to 10 years from planting for mulberry trees to bear fruit! Available in many varieties – from white to purple to black – they only have a short season and shelf life so grab them while you can. But be gentle as they bruise at the slightest touch!

3 ways to help ease school exam anxiety 1 BE PREPARED Most children will feel anxious around test time. They want to perform well and are aware that they’ll be evaluated. Help them by setting up useful study habits such as creating a routine that allows time for study, reviewing class notes, quizzing friends in group study, and minimising distractions (especially screen time). 2 UNDER PRESSURE Pressure can help exam performance to a certain extent, but when it’s too intense it can override our ability to think, learn and respond the way we need to. Let your children know you trust in their ability to do their best and you’ll be proud of them – and love them – no matter how they do. Before the test, you might like to say something like: “What…
