  • Hi all

    I am declaring at £111.16 for September, it was a bit over my original budget plan but I'm pleased because it included cat food and cleaning stuff. So I've decided I've found an amount I'm happy with so will be aiming for £120 for October.

    Thanks

  • Evening everyone -

    We are doing surprising well this month with only a few days to go so fingers crossed.

    Someone at work gave me a carrier bag of cooking apples so I prepared a load by simmering with sugar as a base for crumble or apple pie and that's gone in the freezer. Then I had a go at making baked apples for the first time ever. :eek:. Despite scoring around the middle of the apple when I went to remove them from the oven they had all burst over the dish so we had apple mush and ice cream which was actually quite nice!:rotfl:

    Mmm, baked apples...:happyhear I have got 750 million apples (actual figures may vary) so I might do this. Did you core them and stuff the centre with butter, sugar, sultanas and cinnamon or were you terribly healthy? (First option is possibly not so good for one's figure but terribly good for one's morale, especially when it's foggy outside as it is here tonight...) :rolleyes:
