    Quick question
    Ladies, having a little pregnancy panic, wondered what you think. I'm supposed to be having lasange that I'd had frozen in the freezer. I made it before I was pg with Quark and tesco low fat cream cheese but I can't tell if
    A) they're pasteurized and
    B) If they'll be ok after being frozen.

    Other option is a McDonalds and I've not been that healthy recently so I want the lasange to work!

    Quark etc fine in terms of pasteurising, not sure about freezing! They'll be safe I reckon, perhaps just odd texture?

    I would try the lasagne

    Any tips on getting sticky tape marks off uPvc window frames. Have used white vinegar and cif. Neither have worked.
    These sticky bits may have been there since last Xmas!

    Thanks

    Ahh, it hasn't worked!

    The sticky will have to stay for now!

To get the sticky residue of skin my mum had a bottle of Zoff. No idea what was in it, but you can get these http://www.stjohnsupplies.co.uk/products/default.asp?productId=F11422 They might work, but are probably a bit expensive.

    For some reason you can't get the liquid in the UK any more - but it's still available in Australia?! https://www.medshop.com.au/smith-nephew-zoff-adhesive-remover-liquid.html

    Lakeland do a dedicated 'thing' for removing sticky marks, which is meant to be very good.

    What are the sticky marks, sellotape or similar?

    A dab of mayonaise? the oil seeps into labels and takes them straight off usually. I'm surprised that WD40 didn't work, maybe you need to 'break' the glossy surface with the rough side of a sponge scourer first?

    The sticky residue is Sellotape.

    I am ignoring it for now!

    Lemons
    I have just started a batch of limoncello, but now that I have taken the rind off the lemons I suspect they wont last very long in the fridge without drying out/going off

    I have used up 4 making a batch of lemon curd (run out of butter & eggs now) but I still have a few lemons left - do you think the juice from the remainder would freeze OK or will it lose some of it's flavour? - I thought I would save it to make a lemon sorbet for around Christmas/New Year time.

    Thanks in anticipation

    It will be fine. I've frozen lemon juice in ice cube containers before now and it's been fine. I've even frozen whole lemons for making marmalade and they've also been fine - in fact I'd say I got more juice out of them after thawing.

    You've probably sorted it out now but I would fry a chopped onion, add a couple of pints of hot stock. (I use those veg stockpot things, cheap in HB) then drop in the mixed veg. Simmer for about 30 mins until veg is soft then liquidise. I always add garlic near the end of cooking as I think it gets a chemically flavour if overcooked. Salt and pepper to taste.
    You could add some chicken (with chicken stock?) but I would use it for sandwiches to eat with the soup.
    If you check out the soup recipe thread you'll find a lot more ideas.
    PS. If you were just in a hurry to use up the veg in case they went off. I've popped them into the freezer in the bag, until I have more time.

    good plan ... anyway, I'd say don't use a scouring pad or anything scratchy, or you may damage the finish on the UPVC, if there is still some sellotape there then scrape that off with a thumbnail. You may then find that a 'little and often' approach does the trick.

    But if you are near a Lakeland, or want to do a mail order, then do try their sticky stuff remover because if it doesn't work they WILL refund you! I've linked to the spray, they also do wipes, and a gel kit.
