There are a lot of reasons to dig up a road, unfortunately! Here’s one of the less common belowground infrastructure renewals we do.

Digger Operator Layton is removing an old air valve block on the bulk water main running from Naenae Reservoir. The team put in a new, bigger air valve (replacing the one just visible in the wooden chamber) then constructed a new concrete chamber and manhole cover for better service and maintenance access.

Eggs any way, anytime

Emma Reporter from Stuff Cooks

During lockdown, there was no leftover my family wouldn’t crack an egg onto and eat for breakfast: leftover mash, leftover chicken pot pie, the last dribbles of a batch of ham hock soup and once, a lamb chop.

Eventually “Eggs & Anything” infiltrated dinner and our standards dropped even lower: the skillet was dumped on the table along with a pile of forks, a few side plates - maybe, a tea towel as a napkin for the 8-year-old with the large lockdown appetite and away we went.

Lazy egg suppers have hung around in Alert Level 2 - minus the dinner dregs and skillet table service, and with the addition of an actual recipe: Turkish eggs, spicy red shakshuka and spiced bread egg in a hole.

Eggs, dukkah and garlic fried spinach is another favourite combo in our house. What's your favourite?
